Abstract

The action of hormones such as insulin in contributing to life-threatening diseases such as diabetes may be difficult for students to understand. To teach students the critical details of the regulation of blood glucose and the different types of diabetes, we created a laboratory exercise using a five-patient hypoglycemic—hyperglycemic coma case.
