Hypoglycemia in birth asphyxiated infants is attributed to glycogen depletion. We observed three term AGA (Appropriate for Gestational Age) infants with birth asphyxia, who developed hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia postnatally. All had inappropriately high serum insulin concentrations for their blood glucose levels, and needed glucose infusion rates of greater than 8 mg/kg/min for several days to maintain normoglycemia. All infants recovered spontaneously.
