A case of a non-insulin dependent diabetic patient with regular spontaneous hypoglycemic attacks, which were due to insulin-binding antibodies induced by human insulin therapy.
A 74-year-old diabetic patient had been treated with oral hypoglycemic agents from the age of 40 years until the age of 72, when his treatment regimen was changed to human insulin. He beganExpand
