The Lowdown is all about bringing people together and sharing personal stories about your hypos. We want to create a community, so no one feels alone. 

We know hypos add up. So to raise awareness of how much they can interrupt daily life, we’ve made this the theme for this year’s The Lowdown.  

From the number of hypos you have each week, to the time spent recovering from hypos and the cost of all those hypo treatments.  

It all adds up.    

We’d love to hear your hypo stories. Share and comment on our social media pages.
