Glucagon Deficiency Causing Severe Neonatal Hypoglycemia in a Patient with Normal Insulin Secretion

Abstract

Summary: In the presented patient glucagon secretion was not stimulated by hypoglycemia or by infusion of alanine, whereas insulin secretion responded normally to changes in blood glucose and alanine concentrations. The administration of exogenous glucagon evoked an abnormally strong and prolonged hyperglycemic response. Gluconeogenesis was severely… (More)
