[Hypoglycemia: diagnostic approach]
Résumé
Hypoglycaemia can occur if the endogenous liver glucose output is lower than the glucose uptake in insulin-sensitive and insulin-insensitive tissues. The onset of hypoglycaemia induces the production of counterregulatory hormones such as glucagon, epinephrine, growth hormone and cortisol, and symptoms of neuroglycopenia. The correlation between biological hypoglycaemia and the symptoms associated with low blood sugar is particularly poor in diabetic patients and in patients with suspected postprandial hypoglycaemia. It is important to discriminate between fasting and postprandial hypoglycaemia. Idiopathic postprandial hypoglycaemia should be diagnosed clinically without further laboratory assessment, whereas the etiology of a fasting hypoglycaemia needs to be clarified further by laboratory testing, as it is potentially life-threatening.
