The article presents the case study of an 81-year-old woman who presented to the emergency department (ED) after a fall in her kitchen and was subsequently hospitalized with a hip fracture due to a hypoglycemia event. She was told to discontinue glyburide, referred to a dietitian for education regarding diet and hypoglycemia management, given lisinopril, 5 mg daily, and recommended an assessment of the home environment for fall hazards. The risks of antidiabetic agents are included.
