Resumen

WANG, Congcong et al. Treatment with acarbose in severe hypoglycaemia due to late dumping syndrome. West Indian med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.62, n.9, pp. 861-863. ISSN 0043-3144.

BACKGROUND: We present a case of recurrent loss of consciousness, which was finally accurately diagnosed as late dumping syndrome twelve years after subtotal gastrectomy and successfully treated with acarbose. A 66-year old lean male was found unconscious repeatedly within one year. Oral glucose tolerance tests performed before and after acarbose treatment verified the diagnosis of late dumping syndrome. Acarbose can be used as a successful treatment modality for reactive hypoglycaemia due to late dumping syndrome by influencing the release of hormone.

Palabras llave : Acarbose; hypoglycaemia; late dumping syndrome.
