Topiramate is a drug used to treat epilepsy, and is known for its effects including reduced appetite resulting in lower body weight, and the lowering of neutral fat. In addition, topiramate is known to reduce blood sugar levels by increasing insulin sensitivity and by increasing insulin secretion by glucose stimulation. The authors report a case of persistent hypoglycemia, in a patient who had been administrating topiramate, as a treatment for epilepsy following an episode of cerebral infarction.
Key Words: diabetes mellitus, hypoglycemia, topiramate
