Brittle Diabetes

Brittle Diabetes is a term that is sometimes used to describe hard to control diabetes. It is also called ‘Labile’ Diabetes. Both Labile and Brittle mean unstable or easily changed. Brittle Diabetes is a rare form of insulin dependent diabetes. It is also characterized by variations in blood sugar levels. It swings from Hyperglycemia to Hypoglycemia and vice versa.

People with type 1 diabetes are at greater risk of Brittle diabetes because while many people with type 1 diabetes experience hypoglycemia, only a small proportion of people with type 1 diabetes experience the frequent blood glucose swings described as “brittle.” People with long-term type 2 diabetes may also have difficulty controlling blood glucose, but few have these frequent swings. People of any age with diabetes can be affected by these frequent ups and downs in blood glucose levels.
