Insulinoma

A unusual noncancerous tumour of the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. The tumour causes irregular quantities of insulin to be produced, with the result that the amount of glucose in the blood can fall to hazardously low levels (hypoglycaemia). Unless sugar is consumed immediately, this situation can cause coma or even death. Once the condition had been diagnosed,  drug (diazoxide) is administered to stop hypoglycaemia from recurring until the tumour has been removed.
