A task force report by the American Diabetes Association and The Endocrine Society noted that the occurrence of hypoglycemia in the absence of blood glucose readings may be classified as "probable symptomatic hypoglycemia," while hypoglycemic symptoms with a reading above 70 mg/dL may be deemed "pseudo-hypoglycemia." Researchers also highlighted the need for customized diabetes treatments that focus on children and older patients. The report appears in Diabetes Care and the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
