Abstract

Blood glucose is maintained within a narrow range by the balance between intestinal absorption, glucose synthesis and glucose release from glycogen stores. Many diseases can affect this balance and result in hypoglycaemia; this can result in dramatic clinical signs due to neuroglycopenia. This article summarises the physiology of glucose regulation and the clinical signs of hypoglycaemia, its emergency treatment and its causes.
