We wish to identify people with hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and ultimately determine why
the blood sugar levels are so low. To do so, we will contrast the responses of patients
suspected to have hypoglycemia with those of healthy subjects during standardized tests.
Those tests may include: 1) a controlled hypoglycemia produced by administration of insulin,
a blood sugar-lowering hormone, and sugar, 2) a formula meal, and 3) a period of up to 72
hours without food.
- Patients with suspected hypoglycemia
- Healthy subjects (controls)
- Absence of known macrovascular disease or of known CNS disease by medical history,
physical examination or ECG (exclusions for induced hypoglycemia)
- Ability to give informed consent
