Abstract

A ten‐fold increase in daily insulin requirements during the administration of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is described in a patient with congenital generalized lipodystrophy, insulin‐requiring diabetes mellitus, and acanthosis nigricans during an episode of acute pancreatitis secondary to hypertriglyceridaemia. After a period of 13 days on TPN, insulin requirements increased dramatically to an average of 1428 units per day for a period of 12 days, to achieve a mean blood glucose level of 10.9 mmol l−1. When the patient resumed feeding and the TPN was discontinued, the average daily insulin requirement was 104 units with a mean 24 h blood glucose of 11.8 mmol l−1. Parenteral administration of energy substrates in a rare case of diabetes mellitus and congenital lipodystrophy complicated by acute pancreatitis resulted in a severe insulin insensitive state due to the combination of the hypermetabolism conferred by the pancreatitis plus transient impairments of the glucose disposal mechanism by the energy substrates provided. 1993 Diabetes UK
