Background: Bedside blood ketone measurement has often been used in the management of diabetic ketoacidosis. However there is no available data on its reliability in the evaluation of hypoglycaemia in children. We aimed to assess the reliability of bedside ketones (β-hydroxybutyrate, BHB) in the evaluation of hypoglycaemia in children.Objective and hypotheses: To assess reliability of bedside ketone measurement in a clinical setting of hypoglycaemia...

Introduction: Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a rare genetic disorder that is characterised by persistent hypoglycaemia in infants and children. We are reporting a rare case of diffuse CHI who was also found to have hypopituitarism and several other congenital anomalies. A similar association has not been reported in literature.Case: A female baby was born at 42 weeks gestation with a birth weight of 4.185 kg (1.72SDS). She suffered shoulder dystocia...
