will be treated with diazoxide Patients who continue to experience uncontrolled hypoglycemia after surgery will be treated with the medication diazoxide.
The most common age group for meningitis is infants aged 0-6 months.
Diagnosis of FoHI or DiHI is based on the presence of clinical criteria, including fasting hypoglycemia, inadequate suppression of plasma insulin, decreased levels of free fatty acids and hydroxybutyrate in the blood, and an inappropriate glycemic response to glucagon injection.
The patient's diagnosis of type 2 diabetes was confirmed by genetic testing for mutations in ABCC8 and KCNJ1.
If someone has uncontrolled hypoglycemia even with medical management (diazoxide, octreotide), that usually means they will need surgery.
The patient was able to take their medication out in time to wash it out before the PET scan was scheduled.
The patient has normal hepatic and renal function.
