Insulinoma induced hypoglycemia


Hypoglycemia can occur as a result of inappropriate insulin use by diabetics. In addition, insulinoma creates a pathological condition of inappropriately high insulin levels and decreased glucose levels.

Hypoglycemia causes nervousness, tachycardia, tremor, sweating, paleness and ultimately coma. The ultimate treatment of insulinoma is surgical resection. For acute treatment of insulin-induced hypoglycemia, glucagon can be used.


Hypoglycemia can be caused by insulinoma, fasting or insulin treatment.
