Atsushi Goto i wsp – Severe hypoglycaemia and cardiovascular disease:systematic review and meta-analysis with bias analysis BMJ 2013;347:f4533 (dostępny pełen tekst)
Results:

In the conventional random effects meta-analysis, severe hypoglycaemia was strongly associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease (relative risk 2.05, 95% confidence interval 1.74 to 2.42; P<0.001).

Conclusion:

Our findings suggest that severe hypoglycaemia is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease; they also support the notion that avoiding severe hypoglycaemia may be important to prevent cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes.
