Thinking Outside Standard Treatment for Refractory Hypoglycemia

This post from Pulmcrit presents a totally different way of looking at hypoglycemia management. Admittedly there isn’t tons of practical evidence and these cases tend to be unusual but I love that this post goes beyond standard thinking and presents some alternative ideas. One of the most interesting ideas here is using steroids to assist in managing refractory  hypoglycemia. I haven’t seen any cases where this has been done but it seems like a great concept to have in your back pocket!
