Hypoglycemia (low blood glucose level) occurs frequently in intensively treated patients with diabetes. Although hypoglycemia was thought to occur almost exclusively in T1DM, with the advent of improved metabolic control in T2DM, the incidence of hypoglycemia is rising in these patients. Therefore in this application, we will test the novel hypothesis that prior hypoglycemia will result in (cardiovascular complications) during subsequent hypoglycemia.

Inclusion Criteria - 16 (8 female/ 8 male) Type 2 diabetic patients age 18-60 yrs - 16 (8 female/ 8 male) Non-diabetic controls age and weight matched - Body mass index >20 kg/m2 - Normal results of routine blood test to screen for hepatic, renal, and hematological abnormalities - Female volunteers of childbearing potential: negative HCG pregnancy test - Volunteers over 40 years old: normal baseline cardiac stress test - For those with type 2 diabetes: HBA1C >5.5% - For those with type 2 diabetes: diabetes < 20 years - For those with type 2 diabetes: C-peptide >0.2 nmol (1.1-4.4 ng/ml).
