due to hypoglycemia


Explanation:
Altered state of consciousness due to hypoglycemia.
"Hypoglycemia is an important and easily reversible cause of altered mental status in patients presenting to the emergency department. Hypoglycemia accounts for approximately 7% of patients presenting to the emergency department with an altered mental status. In diabetic patients, approximately 25% will experience hypoglycemia on a regular basis."

neutral  Joseph Tein: Hi Fiona. Given the "su" for both "ipoglicemi" (this is not hypoglycemia - it's a plural noun) and "terapia insulinica" I think the patient is ON both of these treatments. See: https://www.bouldermedicalcenter.com/oral-hypoglycemic-drugs...

  -> Hi Joseph. You're probably right - that said, I think we always have to be wary of Italian MDs' "writing skills" and the phrase as a whole. But yes, it's probably oral hypoglycemics here.

neutral  Angela Guisci: Maybe they forgot "a" in Italian it's ipoglicemia...
