This up to date review article provides a background to the diagnosis, molecular genetics, recent advances and therapeutic options in the field of HH in children. Recently, it has been reported that sirolimus is effective and safe for the severe, diazoxide unresponsive diffuse congenital HH with no major side effects [ ]. Characterization of the mouse HNF-4 gene and its expression during mouse embryogenesis. Raised plasma hydroxybutyrylcarnitine and urinary 3-hydroxyglutarate are diagnostic of a rare type of congenital HH hydroxyacyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenase HADH deficiency [ 57 ]. Hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia management Patients with HH are at risk of severe brain injury, leading to short-term acute neurological symptoms eg, seizure, lethargy, coma and long-term neurological sequelae eg, epilepsy, cognitive deficits, microcephaly [ 99 ]. The mechanism s behind this still remains unknown.

This was seen in a case series of infants with congenital HH but with normal K ATP channel and glutamate dehydrogenase function [ 94 ]. Both of these regulate GDH activity and thus stimulate amino acid-mediated insulin release. Treatment of hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia with nifedipine. Su J, Wang L. Frequent feeding In infants, frequent high calorie carbohydrate feeds may reduce the frequency and severity of hypoglycaemic episodes. Gonul Gulal Buyukyilmaz, Email:

This protein has a role in transporting monocarboxylates such as pyruvate or lactate into the Krebs cycle to produce ATP and promote insulin release independently of glucose [ 66 ]. Octreotide Octreotide, the second line drug of HH, gulawl an 8 amino acid synthetic somatostatin analogue that inhibits insulin secretion epjsode binding to somatostatin receptor 2 and 5 SSTR2 and SSTR5 [ ].


Hypotension is an uncommon side-effect [ ] especially at doses above 0.

Finally, genetic counselling is recommended for the familial forms of HH. Open in a separate window.

Following the first experience, several number of case reports indicating the successful use of sirolimus have been published [ — ]. However, some are not diagnosed until the first year or during childhood [ 91 — 93 ]. Hypoglycemia due to lower threshold of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion in phosphoglucomutase 1 deficiency.

Congenital HH due to these mutations is also known as exercise-induced HH, since vigorous exercise stimulates hypoglycaemia. Nifedipine Nifedipine, a calcium channel blocker, inhibits insulin secretion by inactivating the voltage-gated calcium channels [ ]. Typically patients with exercise-induced HH develop hypoglycaemia following a bout of strenous exercise.

Hence, prompt diagnosis and immediate treatment is essential to avoid such complications. Glutamate dehydrogenase 1 gene; HADH: Partial tachyphylaxis to somatostatin SST analogues in a patient with acromegaly: Int J Biochem Cell Biol.


Therefore, diazoxide responsiveness has been the key point for the molecular genetics analysis, differential diagnosis and management strategies of HH. A schematic appearance of pancreatectomy methods for surgery of congenital HH. Diagnosis and investigations of HH The early diagnosis of HH is fundamentally important for preventing hypoglycaemic brain injury, hence, clinicians should always be aware of recognising and managing these patients.

GDH appears to be sensitive to the amino acid leucine and nucleotide phosphate potential [ 7 ]. Activation of SSTR-2 and SSTR-5 inhibits calcium mobilization and acetylcholine activity, and decreases insulin gene promoter activity, reduces insulin biosynthesis and insulin secretion.

Although requires further evidence, these findings suggested that ketogenic diet could have a neuroprotective effect despite persistence of neuroglycopenia and it can be used in selected cases of HH.
