We would like to extend an invitation to join us at the above conference, which aims to principally inform on islet transplantation as well as other new and emerging treatments for hypoglycaemia. These services help improve the quality of life for people with Type 1 diabetes who have severe hypoglycaemia unawareness.

The conference will provide a forum through presentation and informal discussion, to recognise progress to date in islet transplantation in Scotland, the UK and internationally and will include the wider issues of treating people with Type 1 diabetes with hypoglycaemia.

A key aim of this study day is to inform health care professionals of islet transplantation as well as new treatments and key technological advances in the treatment of hypoglycaemia.
