    Perioperative Glucose Management: Point-of-Care Testing and Pseudohypoglycemia.
    A A Case Rep 2015 Jul;5(1):13-4
    From the Department of Anesthesiology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.
    Perioperative hypoglycemia has been associated with adverse outcomes. Consequently, perioperative monitoring of blood glucose using convenient point-of-care (POC) monitors is frequently used. Although venous or arterial glucose POC testing has been cleared for use in critically ill hospitalized patients, the results of capillary glucose POC testing should be interpreted with caution because capillary POC samples are usually less reliable than those obtained from arterial or venous sites.

    Discrepant Glucose Results between Capillary and Venous Blood in an 83-Year-Old White Man.
    Lab Med 2014 ;45(4):e156-7
    Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA Clinical Laboratories, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian and Shadyside Hospitals, Pittsburgh, PA McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA
    Herein, we present a case of pseudohypoglycemia induced by hypothermia in an 83-year-old white man in whom glucose levels between venous and capillary blood were discrepant. Although pseudohypoglycemia has been reported in the literature, it is under-recognized among health care professionals and laboratorians. Health care professionals may encounter pseudohypoglycemia using glucose meters; the potentially inaccuracy of glucose meter results for critically ill patients has been intensely debated recently.

    Pseudohypoglycemia: a cause for unreliable finger-stick glucose measurements.
    Endocr Pract 2008 Apr;14(3):337-9
    Department of Internal Medicine, University of Cincinnati, College of Medicine, Cincinnati, Ohio 45208, USA.
    Objective: To identify patients with an inaccurate diagnosis of hypoglycemia and discuss predisposing factors.

    Methods: We describe our patient's clinical presentation, laboratory work-up, hospital course, and follow-up and review similar cases from the literature.

    Results: A 27-year-old woman with Raynaud phenomenon was admitted because of symptomatic hypoglycemia. Read More

    Pseudohypoglycemia in adult victims of adolescent incest.
    South Med J 1990 Nov;83(11):1338-40
    Department of Internal Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock 79430.
    Two patients with complaints of hypoglycemia came for evaluation, and both complained of intermittent episodes of mental dullness, disorientation, confusion, and palpitations relieved by eating. Plasma glucose levels at the time of symptoms were always above 70 mg/dL. Initial onset of symptoms was within 1 to 2 years after cessation of repeated incest, and on recognition of this, both patients associated the onset of episodes of similar feelings with the acts of incest.

    [Syndrome of clinical pseudohypoglycemia].
    Minerva Med 1984 Nov;75(45-46):2751-4
    Four cases of coma, clinically typed as hypoglycaemic but without low blood sugar levels are presented. The clinical picture was rapidly normalised by immediate infusion with hypertonic glucosate. A tentative pathogenetic hypothesis is proposed and the Yager and Young "non-hypoglycaemia" syndrome is once more discussed. Read More
