The author expresses views on a study on central versus peripheral glucose sensing of hypoglycemia. He cites that the occurrence of hypoglycemia is one of the most important limits in the ability of an individual to control blood glucose in diabetics. He says the research found out that the rate of fall of glucose determines the primacy of the site of glucose sensing. He adds that the results imply that hypoglycemia is sensed both centrally and peripherally.
