415 Possible Causes for Fasting Hypoglycemia

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Introduction: A subset of frequent users of emergency services are those who use the emergency department (ED) for acute alcohol intoxication. This population and their ED encounters have not been previously described. Methods: This was a retrospective, observational, cohort study of patients presenting to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Alcoholic Hypoglycemia & Ketosis Alcoholic hypoglycemia occurs as a result of prolonged fasting and excess alcohol intake, when the hepatic glycogen store becomes depleted[pubs.sciepub.com] […] which helps in maintaining blood glucose levels. if these substrates or pathways fail to produce glucose during fasting state it aggravates the risk of hypoglycemia.[pubs.sciepub.com] Both lipolytic and ketogenic pathways are important to prevent hypoglycemia by providing substrates like glycerol, free fatty acids (FFA), ketone bodies for gluconeogenesis[pubs.sciepub.com]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Abstract Anemia is a major problem in patients with chronic kidney insufficiency. The development of recombinant human erythropoietin has enabled physicians to correct this anemia. Although anemia has not been considered to be a common or important contributor to congestive heart failure, anemia of any cause can[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Fasting hypoglycemia Nesidioblastosis is a rare cause of fasting hypoglycemia in infants and an extremely rare cause in adults.[emedicine.com] Fasting Hypoglycemia Fasting hypoglycemia can be caused by certain medications, illnesses, hormonal deficiencies and some kinds of tumors.[hospitals.jefferson.edu] Hypoglycemia in patients with islet cell adenomas results from uncontrolled insulin secretion, which may be clinically determined during fasting and exercise.[emedicine.com]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    , insulin growth factor 2, non-islet cell tumors, paraneoplastic syndrome, therapy Abstract Paraneoplastic syndrome has a wide range of symptoms and fasting hypoglycemia is[mattioli1885journals.com] Seen in febrosarcoma, haemangiofibropericytoma, hepatoma)  Diagnosis: fasting hypoglycemia  Plasma insulin/pro-insulin/peptide C during hypoglycemia  Treatment:  Anticancer[slideshare.net] Clinical features may vary and typical laboratory features of paraneoplastic hypoglycemia includes low level of fasting glucose and C-peptide, low insulin growth factor 1[mattioli1885journals.com]

  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    Inappropriately high fasting serum insulin levels with concurrent hypoglycemia confirm the diagnosis. Initial interventions for hyperinsulinemia are conservative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Excluding insulin therapy, almost all hypoglycemia in childhood occurs during fasting.[emedicine.medscape.com] Protein-sensitive and fasting hypoglycemia in children with the hyperinsulinism/hyperammonemia syndrome. J Pediatr. 2001;138:383–9. PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar 16.[link.springer.com]

  • Addison's Disease

    Patients with adrenal insufficiency develop hypoglycemia after fasting because of decreased gluconeogenesis.[merckmanuals.com] […] when fasting Metabolic acidosis Moderate neutropenia Eosinophilia Relative lymphocytosis Anemia, normochromic, normocytic Follow-Up Tests & Special Considerations Standard[unboundmedicine.com] In this test, blood is drawn to measure the blood glucose and cortisol levels, followed by an injection of fast-acting insulin.[pituitary.org]

  • Septicemia

    We document a previously unreported case of a pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm (PAP) that developed in a pediatric patient initially presenting with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus hip joint sepsis. This is the first reported case of PAP of infectious origin in a pediatric patient, and this case is unique[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    RATIONALE: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a highly invasive cancer associated with high mortality rates. Although sorafenib is currently recommended as standard treatment for advanced HCC, its treatment efficacy is limited. Effective treatments for patients with advanced HCC that progresses on or after[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    The tumor was surgically removed, relieving the fasting hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract We report a 22-yr-old male patient with chronic hepatitis B and a large, well differentiated hepatoma who developed episodes of symptomatic fasting hypoglycemia,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fasting hypoglycemia was believed to be the cause of the movements. A computed tomographic scan showed a large mass in the left inferior hemithorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
