TREATMENT OF POSTPRANDIAL HYPOGLYCEMIA

 

Postprandial hypoglycemia rarely requires emergent treatment. In contrast, postabsorptive hypoglycemias are typically persistent or progressive and require short- and long-term therapy. Clinical improvement should occur within about 15 min after the plasma glucose level is raised and maintained provided that brain damage has not occurred. Whenever possible the presence of hypoglycemia should be documented before therapy, and the response of plasma glucose to therapy should be followed by frequent measurements of the plasma glucose level.
