Hypoglycemia occurs commonly in patients on diabetic medications. Often this requires proper education and adjustment of diabetic treatment regimens. Sometimes hypoglycemia may occur in patients not on any diabetic drugs. Rarely this might be due to hormonal conditions such as an insulin-producing tumour.
Proper work up and evaluation of hypoglycemia is crucial in diagnosing these conditions as these conditions can be hazardous if left untreated. Prompt diagnosis and treatment of these underlying conditions can bring about excellent clinical outcomes in the long term.
