Pancic Jelena Malinovic , Caric Bojana , Popovic Bojana

B-pancreatic cells are programmed to react to plasma glucose level with insulin secretion. Insulin secretion is precisely regulated and in the physiological conditions fasting glucose levels are maintained in the range 3.5–5.5 mmol/l. In hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia, a disorder of the regulation of insulin secretion, insulin secretion continues at low concentrations of plasma glucose. In adults hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is the cause of 0.5 to 5.0% of hypoglicaemias a...
