Intractable hypoglycemia in a patient with renal failure



Intractable hypoglycemia in a patient with renal failure



Archives of Internal Medicine 139(1): 101-102



A patient with chronic renal failure developed intractable hypoglycemia after 2 1/2 years of dialysis. Metabolic studies did not suggest that malnutrition, substrate limitation, hormone deficiency, or insulin excess were responsible for the low blood glucose level. Impaired gluconeogenesis may have been an important factor, but studies in this patient suggest that enhanced glucose utilization may also play a role in the pathogenesis of hypoglycemia in renal failure.
