34 Possible Causes for Hypoglycemia, Sleep Attack, Variable Hypoglycemia

  • Hypoglycemia

    Glycemic variability portends increased risk for hypoglycemia and should be a focus of further research.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On this page: What is hypoglycemia? What are the symptoms of hypoglycemia? What causes hypoglycemia in people with diabetes? How can hypoglycemia be prevented?[web.archive.org] Nocturnal attacks are often preceded by nightmares and cause severe sleep disturbance resulting in daytime somnolence. Only a perfect diet will control hypoglycemia.[fibromyalgiatreatment.com]

  • Nocturnal Hypoglycemia

    […] and nocturnal hypoglycemia was assessed using longitudinal data from PREDICTIVE, the large-scale observational study of insulin detemir.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] prior hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These patients had severe hypoglycemic attacks during night sleep with subsequent compression thoracic vertebrae fractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Insulinoma

    A somatostatin analog, octreotide (100 to 500 mcg sc bid to tid), is variably effective and should be considered for patients with continuing hypoglycemia refractory to diazoxide[merckmanuals.com] […] postprandial hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood glucose at intake can be highly variable, depending on when (and what) the ferret last ate.[mspca.org]

  • Carnitine Transporter Deficiency

    Carnitine deficiency has a variable presentation depending on the cause of the disease.[symptoma.com] Infants often present with hypoketotic hypoglycemia, poor feeding, irritability, lethargy, and hepatomegaly, triggered by fasting stress or common illnesses including gastoenteritis[orpha.net] IH is distinguished from narcolepsy by the female predominance, severe morning inertia, continuous drowsiness (rather than sleep attacks), unrefreshing naps, absence of cataplexy[allmedx.com]

  • Reye Syndrome

    hypoglycemia, and a threefold or greater elevation in serum transaminases (AST, ALT) (1,2,3).[hawaii.edu] In Reye-like syndrome, because of inborn errors of metabolism, hypoglycemia, hypoketonemia, elevated ammonia, and organic aciduria are often evident.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ( Amaurosis fugax, Transient global amnesia ) Cerebrovascular disease ( MCA, ACA, PCA, Foville's, Millard-Gubler, Lateral medullary, Weber's, Lacunar stroke ) Sleep disorders[wikidoc.org]

  • Nesidioblastosis

    The manifestations of patients with pancreatic ß cells hyperplasia are variable and their preop. diagnosis is difficult.[enets.org] Persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy (PHHI) or nesidioblastosis is a rare condition presenting with severe hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] I was also prescribed Xanax for my anxiety attacks. I only take this as night if I can't sleep. Regarding low sugar at night - I don't have too many of these issues.[healthboards.com]

  • Autonomic Neuropathy

    […] an algorithm for prediction of hypoglycemia in both bedbound and active patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] sensation or feeling in body parts Loss of balance or other functions as a side effect of the loss of feeling in the legs, arms, or other body parts Emotional disturbances Sleep[hopkinsmedicine.org] A good glycemic and CVD risk factor control avoiding glycemic variability and hypoglycemia seems the most important therapeutic approach for its prevention [3, 7-9].[escardio.org]

  • Diabetic Ketotic Coma

Moore C, Woollard M.[ahcmedia.com] hypoglycemia can be treated through eating 1 Pneumococcal Diseae and Vaccine Recommendations Pneumococcal Disease and Influenza: Pneumococcal Diabetic Hyperosmolar Non Ketotic[ipmgroup.eu] Some sleep problems can lead to serious health issues such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, fatigue-related motor vehicle accidents, and decreased quality of[excelahealth.org]

  • Myopathic Carnitine Deficiency

    Hypotension; hypoglycemia; bronzing of the skin Hyponatremia; hyperkalemia; ACTH assay; ACTH stimulation test Normal Myotonic discharges† Diminished glycogen content Glucocorticoid[aafp.org] Laboratory results show hypoglycemia with little to no ketones in urine (hypoketotic hypoglycemia), high levels of ammonia in the blood hyperammonemia), and elevated liver[rarediseases.org] Cold, general anesthesia, and sleep deprivation have also been reported as triggers.[medicalbag.com]

  • Long QT Syndrome

    Penetrance is variable.[nature.com] In this study, we show that KCNQ1 LQTS patients have postprandial hyperinsulinemia and reactive hypoglycemia and experience symptoms of hypoglycemia.[doi.org] , and low potassium after an oral glucose challenge, suggesting that KCNQ1 mutations may explain some cases of "essential" reactive hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
