due to hypoglycemia

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:

  -> 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...
