Areas of Research Interest

Hypoglycemia in diabetes and the physiology of glucose counterregulation, specifically the mechanisms involved in hypoglycemia associated autonomic failure (HAAF) and diabetes.  Also therole of the central nervous system in HAAF pathophysiology. Dr. Arbeláez is also interested in cystic fibrosis related diabetes.
