Sulfonylurea-induced hypoglycaemia: use of octreotide



Sulfonylurea-induced hypoglycaemia: use of octreotide



Acta Clinica Belgica 64(1): 56-58



Sulfonylurea compounds are commonly used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. The case of an old alcoholic addicted diabetic patient treated with gliquidone developing recurrent and prolonged hypoglycaemias refractory to dextrose administration is related. According to the emergency literature, the use of octreotide in sulfonyurea-induced hypoglycaemia refractory to dextrose administration is related to overdoses of SUA. Use of octreotide with our patient allowed stabilization of the glycaemia.
