A team of scientists from the United Kingdom and France has identified the cause of a rare, life-threatening form of hypoglycaemia. Writing in the journal Science, the scientists explain how their findings could lead to the development of new pharmaceutical treatments for the condition. A fairly common disorder, hypoglycaemia is normally characterised by too much insulin which results in too little sugar in the bloodstream; it commonly affects diabetic patients or individuals with disorders that cause insulin overproduction. Its symptoms can include seizures and unconsciousness.
