Hypoglycemic Attack


Not only is the public ignorant about diseases like Parkinson’s, but other disorders as well. For example, on the news there was a man that seemed to be avading the police when in reality he was having a hypoglycemic attack. When the man finally came to a stop, the police bashed his window in and pulled the man out of his car through the window breaking his arm in multiple places. When they finally drug him out of his car window, they threw him to the ground and continued to beat this man into handcuffs. Had the police actually known about the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia instead of assuming that he was under the influence, this would have saved them a law suit. So, even in law enforcement, there is room for education about different diseases.
