60 Possible Causes for Hypoglycemia Episodic in Infants

  • Dopamine Beta-Hydroxylase Deficiency

    Abstract Dopamine beta-hydroxylase (DBH) deficiency is a genetic disorder in which affected patients cannot synthesize norepinephrine, epinephrine, and octopamine in either the central nervous system or the peripheral autonomic neurons. Dopamine acts as a false neurotransmitter in their noradrenergic neurons.[…][hyper.ahajournals.org]

  • Puerperium

    Episodes of hypoglycemia and hypothermia are also important to measure especially in the more vulnerable late preterm infants.[doi.org] This review contained only two studies ( Christensson 1995 , Mazurek 1999 ) that evaluated infant crying as an outcome.[doi.org] The relationship between the amount of infant crying, blood glucose and temperature needs further exploration as crying is theorized to expend calories meant for physiological[doi.org]

  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    Infants with moderate recurrent hypoglycemia had lower scores at 3.5 and 5 years of age compared with the group of infants who had 1 single severe hypoglycemic episode.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] More recently, in 1999, Duvanel et al [34] looked at the neurodevelopmental outcomes in a cohort of 85 SGA preterm infants in relation to episodes of hypoglycemia (defined[cps.ca] This data was combined with continuous glucose monitoring to identify episodes of rebound or recurrent hypoglycemia, which were not significantly different between groups.[ebneo.org]

  • Primary Apnea

    Approximately 50% or more of surviving infants who weighed less than 1500 g at birth have episodes of apnea that must be managed with pharmacologic intervention or ventilatory[emedicine.com] […] day of birth; examples are intrapartum magnesium exposure, systemic infections or the fetal inflammatory response syndrome, pneumonia, intracranial pathology, seizures, hypoglycemia[emedicine.com]
