Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
It is evident that the patient in question suffered hypoglycemia
Hypoglycemia is reversible by administering glucose
until the effects of insulin
wean off from the body. However prolonged hypoglycemia can have serious ill effects on the brain (hypoglycemic encephalopathy
) leading to irreversible changes and coma
. The most important criteria which determines the prognosis of this patient is duration of hypoglyemia and its severity.
Hence while managing a hypoglycemic patient / insulin overdosage, blood sugars needs to be monitored frequently so that sugars don't fall below critical limits; neurological status is monitored to make sure patient does not go into coma and sugars is infused intravenously to reverse the process.
Hope I have been helpful with my answer.
Wish you good luck.
