  • A patient presenting with hypoglycemia can easily be misdiagnosed as a stroke, seizure, psychosis, drug ingestion, or a traumatic head injury if the blood glucose level is not obtained. (saem.org)
  • The diagnosis is based on a combination of typical clinical features and exclusion by a pediatric endocrinologist of other causes of "hypoglycemia with ketosis," especially growth hormone deficiency, hypopituitarism, adrenal insufficiency, and identifiable inborn errors of metabolism such as organic acidoses.
