exercise-induced hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia


Definition An autosomal dominant hypoglycaemic disorder (OMIM:245340), characterised by inappropriate insulin secretion during anaerobic exercise or after pyruvate loading.

Molecular pathology Defects of SLC16A1, which encodes a proton-coupled transporter that catalyses the movement of monocarboxylates–e.g., lactate and pyruvate, and ketone bodies across the plasma membrane, cause exercise-induced hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia. 

Synonyms Familial hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia type 7
