Presenter: Pratik, Choudhary, London, UK
Authors: Pratik Choudhary


  1. Why Patients develop impaired awareness and recurrent SH that require transplantation
  2. An evidence based pathway for managing those patients
  3. The current status of technology including closed loop systems
  4. Relative place of transplantation and technology in the near future


Dr. Choudhary's main research work is based around mechanisms and treatments of hypoglycaemia unawareness, with a special interest in the psychology of patients with recurrent hypoglycaemia, and the changes in the brain that are associated with that seen on neuroimaging. He is also interested in the use of technology in diabetes, with a large clinical and research interest in the use of insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring and closed loop insulin delivery. He is also clinical lead for the islet transplant service at King's, and diabetes lead for the pancreas transplantation at Guy's Hospital.
