Example text

37 ANSWER 19 The patient has recently been gaining weight. The episodes of drowsiness and headaches improve after she has something to eat. These symptoms point towards an insulinoma. This is a neuroendocrine tumour that develops in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans and produces excessive quantities of insulin. The insulin drives glucose into the cells, thus lowering the blood glucose level. Patients develop symptoms of hypoglycaemia and eventually present to hospital. To make the diagnosis you will need to send a laboratory serum glucose sample (as finger-prick tests can be unreliable) which should come back as <3 mmol/L.

Approximately 5 per cent of insulinomas are associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1) syndrome. These patients are at increased risk of developing tumours in endocrine glands including the parathyroids, pituitary and pancreas. KEY POINTS • Patients with recurrent episodes of symptomatic hypoglycaemia should be investigated for an insulinoma. • Five per cent of patients with insulinomas have MEN-1 syndome and therefore have increased risk of developing further endocrine tumours in the pituitary and parathyroid glands.
