TALK Hypos

TALK Hypos is an awareness campaign from Novo Nordisk UK, supported by Diabetes UK.  The campaign focusses on encouraging people with diabetes to discuss day - and night-time hypoglycaemia (hypos) to their doctor or nurse.  TALK Hypos uses a simple acronym to help people with diabetes to manage hypoglycaemia more effectively, in conjunction with their healthcare professionals.

  • THINK: Do you know what a hypo is? Do you suffer from hypos?
  • ASK: your doctor or nurse about hypos and discuss them as part of your consultation
  • LEARN: what can be done to better manage your hypos, including lifestyle and treatment options
  • KEEP: track of your hypos for discussion with your healthcare professional using the Hypo Journal:
