Hypoglycaemia, which is characterised by abnormally low levels of blood sugar, is a serious complication of diabetes and affects individuals with diabetes on insulin treatment, in particular.
Goodlife managing director Koen Perenboom said: “With more than a quarter of a million people living with insulin-treated diabetes and at risk of severe hypoglycaemia in the Netherlands, Ogluo is an important treatment option for people with diabetes and their caregivers that can provide them with the confidence to manage severe hypoglycaemic events.”
