BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Impaired glucose control in very preterm infants is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and poor neurologic outcome. Strategies based on insulin titration have been unsuccessful in achieving euglycemia in absence of an increase in hypoglycemia and mortality. We sought to assess whether glucose administration guided by continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is more effective than standard of care blood glucose monitoring in maintaining euglycemia in very preterm infants...

BACKGROUND: Diazoxide, an ATP-sensitive potassium channel opener, is the main therapeutic agent for treating hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia. We aimed to determine the in vivo ductus-dilating effects of diazoxide in fetal and neonatal rats. METHODS: Near-term rat pups delivered via a cesarean section were housed at 33°C. After rapid whole-body freezing, The ductus arteriosus (DA) diameter was measured using a microscope and a micrometer. Full-term pregnant rats (gestational day 21) were intraperitoneally injected with diazoxide (10 and 100 mg/kg) 4 h before delivery, and the neonatal DA diameter was measured at 0, 30, or 60 min after birth...

Insulin degludec is an extra-long-acting insulin analog that allows for enhanced efficacy and flexibility in the injection time. However, it is not approved for use during pregnancy. We report the pregnancy outcome and newborn conditions in two type 1 diabetic women who continued pre-conception degludec treatment during embryogenesis. No pregnancy complication or congenital neonatal malformation was observed. Both babies presented with hypoglycemia and required neonatal intensive care unit admission. Degludec treatment did not cause adverse effects in the mothers or malformations in the newborns...

Hospitals are challenged to implement measures to improve health outcomes, decrease costly interventions, and increase patient satisfaction. By following a nurse-driven protocol, our institution has successfully met these three challenges in our treatment of newborns diagnosed with neonatal hypoglycemia (NH). Based on results of a randomized clinical trial, a multidisciplinary team trialed glucose gel as a standard treatment for NH. During the first year, admission rates to the NICU for NH decreased by 73 percent...

Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in newborns and infants. CHI is characterized by unregulated secretion of insulin from pancreatic β: cells. Here, we reported the case of a large-for-gestational-age, full-term newborn that suffered from CHI and developed severe and persistent hypoglycemia at an early stage of life. The infant was nearly unresponsive to medical treatment, which included continuous intravenous glucagon infusion, oral diazoxide, and nifedipine...

Congenital hyperinsulinism (CH) is the most frequent cause of persistent hypoglycemia in the newborn and it is characterized by an inappropriately elevated insulin level in presence of hypoglycemia. Initial management is medical treatment, but if it fails, partial pancreatectomy is the surgical procedure of choice. OBJECTIVE: To report a case of a newborn with CH to aware on this condition and update its multidisciplinary management. CASE REPORT: The case of a full term newborn with severe symptomatic hypoglycemia unresponsive to medical treatment is reported ...

The use of supra-physiological, exogenous corticosteroids in pregnancy may lead to neonatal adrenal suppression. We report on a single-center, case series study carried out between 2006 and 2014, which included all newborns (n = 16) of mothers using prednisolone ≥10 mg/day during pregnancy. Newborns were routinely assessed according to hospital protocol, with follow-up until 6 weeks after birth. We investigated the clinical symptoms and biochemical findings of adrenal suppression occurring in the newborns...

BACKGROUND: Standardized late preterm infant (LPI) discharge criteria ensure best practice and help guide the neonatal provider to determine the appropriate level of care following birth. However, the location can vary from the well newborn setting to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). PURPOSE: The purpose of this review is to examine differences in LPI discharge criteria between the well newborn setting and the NICU by answering the clinical questions, "What are the recommended discharge criteria for the LPI and do they differ if admitted to the well newborn setting versus the NICU?" SEARCH STRATEGY: Databases searched include CINAHL, TRIP, PubMed, and the Cochrane Library...

The prevalence of diabetes rapidly increased during the last decades in association with important changes in lifestyle. Diabetes and hyperglycemia are well-known for inducing deleterious effects on physiologic processes, increasing for instance cardiovascular diseases, nephropathy, retinopathy and foot ulceration. Interestingly, diabetes also impairs brain morphology and functions such as (1) decreased neurogenesis (proliferation, differentiation and cell survival), (2) decreased brain volumes, (3) increased blood-brain barrier leakage, (4) increased cognitive impairments, as well as (5) increased stroke incidence and worse neurologic outcomes following stroke...

Lower blood glucose values are common in the healthy neonate immediately after birth as compared to older infants, children, and adults. These transiently lower glucose values improve and reach normal ranges within hours after birth. Such transitional hypoglycemia is common in the healthy newborn. A minority of neonates experience a more prolonged and severe hypoglycemia, usually associated with specific risk factors and possibly a congenital hypoglycemia syndrome. Despite the lack of a specific blood glucose value that defines hypoglycemia, concern for substantial neurologic morbidity in the neonatal population has led to the generation of guidelines by both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES)...

BACKGROUND: Although research has shown that having a macrosomic fetus could be predictive of a negative pregnancy outcome, the factors that control its incidence and the outcome of delivery management have been less well characterized in Africa. The aim of this study was to identify specific predispositions and the factors that influence the early neonatal outcome of macrosomic infants in Abuja. METHODS: Data from 120 mother and macrosomic (weighing ≥4000 g) newborn pairs, and an equal number of mother and normal weight (2500-3999 g) matched controls, delivered over a 5-month period at three large hospitals in Abuja, Nigeria, were analyzed...

We report the case of a newborn with neonatal hypotonia associated to a micropenis and a bilateral cryptorchidia. The discovery of severe hypoglycemia at 0.22 mmol/L led to further biological investigations that revealed sharply decreased levels of several hypophyseal hormones. Altered corticotropic, somatotropic, thyreotropic, and gonadotropic axes finally suggested congenital hypophyseal insufficiency. This diagnostic was confirmed by a brain MRI (magnectic resonance imaging), which revealed a total interruption of the pituitary stalk...
