Insulin Reaction (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Insulin Reaction Diagnosis
A low blood sugar associated with symptoms of hypoglycemia confirms an insulin reaction.
The next step is to find out why the insulin reaction occurred. The history taken by the health care practitioner from the patient, bystanders, and family. Often those people that were around the affected individual can assist in defining the reason for the reaction. Further testing and follow-up will depend upon the situation. A person who wakens immediately and returns to normal function with correction of the blood sugar may need no further testing. An individual who continues to have mental status changes like confusion, lethargy, coma, or stroke-like symptoms will likely require further care and testing.
