The attached table shows finished admission episodes (FAEs) with a primary diagnosis of hypoglycaemia and diabetic ketoacidosis by primary care trust (PCT) of residence for ages (i) 0 to 17, (ii) 18 to 64 and (iii) 65 and over from 2003-04 to 2012-13. PCT of residence has been used as this data is available for the 10 year period requested.

The data we have provided should not be considered a count of people as the same person may have been admitted on more than one occasion.

Reference should be made to the footnotes when interpreting the data.
