Diabetes is a common medical condition with the result that there is ready access to hypoglycaemic medications. The major groups of hypoglycaemic agents available are the insulins, the sulfonyl-ureas and metformin (a biguanide). In overdose, with the exception of metformin, these agents cause profound prolonged hypoglycaemia that can provide a management challenge to the emergency physician.
