Hypoglycemic reactions from protamine zinc insulin
A study was made of hypoglycemic reactions in 89 patients who had taken both regular and protamine zinc insulin for at least 6 months.
Fewer reactions occurred with protamine zinc insulin than with regular insulin.
Patients who had reactions with protamine zinc insulin reported them in general to be less severe and less frequent than with regular insulin.
Patients who were overweight were relatively free from reactions with protamine zinc insulin.
Hypoglycemic symptoms from protamine zinc insulin as described by 43 patients were listed in the order of their frequency.
Initial or warning symptoms of protamine zinc insulin shock were given in the order of frequency.
The prevention, recognition and treatment of protamine zinc insulin hypoglycemia were discussed.
