    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 Hypoglycemia is a blood glucose that is lower than normal.

    00:07 A blood sugar that is below 70 should be treated.

    00:10 Hypoglycemia starves the brain of glucose and if not treated can cause seizures and even death.

    00:17 Nurses and patients need to recognize the most common causes and the risk of hypoglycemia and together develop a plan to prevent and treat hypoglycemia.

    00:27 Patients can be proactive in seeking help from friends and family by communicating their signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia and how they may need them to respond to recognize and treat the low blood sugar.

    00:39 Thank you for watching our video today.
