547 Possible Causes for Recurrent Hypoglycemia

  • Hypoglycemia

    They can cause hypoglycemia, albeit uncommonly. A 14-year-old girl with type 1 diabetes mellitus presented with recurrent hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recurrent hypoglycemia attenuates the function of the central, mainly hypothalamic, nervous system and it causes an impaired awareness of hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus with Hypoglycemia

    recurrent hypoglycemia.[clinchem.aaccjnls.org] . 13 Consequences of chronic recurrent hypoglycemia The existence of a link between recurrent severe hypoglycemic events and impaired cognitive function is an issue of debate[diabetesincontrol.com] Group 1 drivers are considerer unfit to drive if they have severe or recurrent hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Common Cold

    […] episodes, the presence of the disorder in siblings, frequent hypoglycemia, cardiac enlargement, and muscle weakness.[nejm.org] […] majority of these inherited disorders are specific enzymatic defects that commonly become evident before the age of three years. 4-7 These disorders are characterized by recurrent[nejm.org]

  • Factitious Hypoglycemia

    A 20-year-old male military paramedic was referred to our emergency department for investigation of recurrent hypoglycemia episodes during the previous months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe a boy with recurrent hypoglycemic coma in whom the diagnosis of factitious hypoglycemia was delayed as it is believed to be nonexistent in our community.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We emphasize that in all patients with recurrent hypoglycemia, estimation of C-peptide and insulin should be performed even when the clinical settings are not in favor of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neonatal Hypoglycemia

    Recurrent hypoglycemia also was a more predictable factor for long-term effects than the severity of a single hypoglycemic episode.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The different types of neonatal hypoglycemia were as follows: four patients had transitional-adaptive, seven classic transient, two secondary-associated, and two severe recurrent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cortical visual deficits were seen in a significant proportion of patients with recurrent hypoglycemia and were correlated significantly with low mesial occipital apparent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Symptoms vary among patients but are usually the same for a particular patient with each recurrence.[merckmanuals.com] Usually clinical Acute intoxication: BAC, evaluation to rule out hypoglycemia and occult trauma and possible co-ingestion Chronic use: CBC, magnesium, liver function tests[merckmanuals.com]

  • Insulin Resistance

    Abstract Autoantibodies directed against specific epitopes in the insulin receptor are rarely the cause of either recurrent hypoglycemia or a severe form of insulin resistance[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The dose of prednisolone was tapered to 30 mg/day without recurrence of hypoglycemia and proteinuria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is tempting to speculate that the late posthypoglycemic insulin resistance originates as a defensive mechanism to protect against recurrence of hypoglycemia after recent[doi.org]

  • Nesidioblastosis

    A 34- yr-old man presented in 1992 with symptoms of recurrent hypoglycemia. Laboratory and imaging findings were consistent with insulinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A second patient had profound hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia and was treated successfully with a subtotal (95%) pancreatectomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] "Post-gastric bypass hyperinsulinism with nesidioblastosis: subtotal or total pancreatectomy may be needed to prevent recurrent hypoglycemia".[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Morbid Obesity

    Severe refractory and/or recurrent hypoglycemia can occur, especially in postoperative patients who do not comply with the guidelines for oral glucose consumption.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, a small subset of patients can develop refractory, recurrent, hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia from factitious insulin administration or nesidioblastosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSION: Most cases of symptomatic hypoglycemia that develop in gastric bypass patients are associated with dietary indiscretions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fibroma

    Recurrence is rare [1, 2]. Written informed patient consent for publication has been obtained.[eurorad.org] Pleural fibromas are associated with an increased prevalence of hypoglycemia and hypertrophic pulmonary osteoartropathy.[eurorad.org]
