23 100 Cases in Clinical Pathology ANSWER 8 Blood glucose level is determined by the balance between insulin and the counter-regulatory hormones (glucagon, adrenaline, growth hormone and cortisol), with hypoglycaemia arising when the balance is shifted too far towards the latter. The clinical features of hypoglycaemia are divided into either autonomic or neurologic symptoms. g. blurred vision, amnesia, loss of consciousness) that occur as a result of deficient supply of glucose to the brain. The responses of glucagon and adrenaline to a low glucose state are responsible for the symptoms of autonomic hyperreactivity, such as sweating, tremor, nausea, and palpitations.

Primary hyperparathyroidism is the commonest cause of hypercalcaemia and typically affects older people, particularly women. The classic ‘stones, bones, moans and groans’ presentation is quite rare, with most individuals presenting with various, seemingly non-specific symptoms such as nephrolithiasis, weakness and mental status changes. Management of this condition is conservative (observation), medical (some evidence supports the use of bisphosphonates and cinacalcet, which inhibits PTH release), or surgical (via parathyroidectomy).

The key aspects of dealing with a suspected paracetamol overdose are a thorough history, complete physical examination and prompt investigations. g. background liver disease, malnourishment, excess a­ lcohol consumption, enzyme-inducing medication). Physical examination is directed mainly at evaluating for possible liver disease, while the key investigations that need to be performed are (1) urinalysis (for ketones), (2) timed serum paracetamol level, (3) liver function, (4) clotting screen (a marker of synthetic liver function), and (5) renal function.
