Table 1 Resolution of HI in relation to maximal diazoxide dose

From: Longitudinal Auxological recovery in a cohort of children with Hyperinsulinaemic Hypoglycaemia

Resolution of HIDiazoxide < 5 mg/kg/day
(n = 44)
Diazoxide > 5 mg/kg/day (n = 26)p-value for difference
Resolution at 6 months
n (%)

Resolution at 5 years
n (%)

  1. A diazoxide dose < 5 mg/kg/day was associated with a greater tendency to resolution both at 6 months and at 5 years. Significant differences are shown as p values for Chi-squared tests
