Transient glucose intolerance associated with the haemolytic-uraemic syndrome

Pediatr Nephrol. 1987 Oct;1(4):605-7. doi: 10.1007/BF00853596.


A 3-year-old girl developed glucose intolerance during treatment with peritoneal dialysis for haemolytic-uraemic syndrome and became insulin dependent for almost a month. Diabetes mellitus in this condition is a rare but potentially serious complication which should be sought by regular blood sugar measurement during the acute stage of the illness.
