English term or phrase:Defective Awakening Response
Defective Awakening Response to Nocturnal Hypoglycemia in Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
Explanation: In base alla descrizione del tipo di studio svolto, penso che "reazione di risveglio difettosa" possa andar bene:
CONCLUSIONS: A fall in plasma glucose to 2.2 mmol/l provokes an awakening response in most healthy control participants, but this response is impaired in T1DM patients. The counterregulatory increase in plasma epinephrine that we observed to precede awakening suggests that awakening forms part of a central nervous system response launched in parallel with hormonal counterregulation. Failure to awaken increases the risk for T1DM patients to suffer prolonged and potentially fatal hypoglycemia.
