Figure 1

Prevalence of patient-reported experience of hypoglycemic symptoms* and symptom severity during the 12 months prior to the patient enrollment date. * Hypoglycemic symptoms are based on the response to the question: "Have you ever felt symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in the last year?". † Hypoglycemic symptom severity is based on the most severe form reported by a patient, i.e. if a patient reports both 'mild' and 'moderate' symptoms, the patient is listed only under the 'moderate' symptoms group. Mild symptoms were defined as: Little or no interruption of your activities, and you didn't feel you needed assistance to manage symptoms. Moderate symptoms were defined as: Some interruption of your activities, but you didn't feel you needed assistance to manage symptoms. The severe symptoms group is a consolidation of the 'severe' and 'very severe' symptoms that were respectively defined as: Felt that you needed assistance of others to manage symptoms (for example, to bring you food or drink), and needed medical attention (for example, called an ambulance, visited an emergency room or hospital, or saw a doctor or nurse).
