Descriptor hiperinsulinismo
Scope note: Síndrome caracterizado por niveles excesivamente elevados de INSULINA en SANGRE que puede causar HIPOGLUCEMIA. La etiología del hiperinsulinismo es diversa, pudiendo deberse a hipersecreción derivada de un tumor de las células beta (INSULINOMA); anticuerpos anti insulina (ANTICUERPOS DE INSULINA); receptores de insulina defectuosos (RESISTENCIA A LA INSULINA); o uso excesivo de insulina exógena o de AGENTES HIPOGLUCEMIANTES.

Scope note: A syndrome with excessively high INSULIN levels in the BLOOD. It may cause HYPOGLYCEMIA. Etiology of hyperinsulinism varies, including hypersecretion of a beta cell tumor (INSULINOMA); autoantibodies against insulin (INSULIN ANTIBODIES); defective insulin receptor (INSULIN RESISTANCE); or overuse of exogenous insulin or HYPOGLYCEMIC AGENTS.
