Autosomal dominant hyperinsulinism due to SUR1 deficiency

Disease definition

A form of diazoxide-sensitive diffuse hyperinsulinism (DHI) characterized by hypoglycemic episodes that are usually mild, escaping detection during infancy, and usually present a good clinical response to diazoxide. Autosomal dominant hyperinsulinism due to SUR1 deficiency usually has a milder phenotype when compared to that resulting from recessive K-ATP mutations (recessive forms of Diazoxide-resistant hyperinsulinism).
