Antidiabetics of the sulfonylurea type have been used since the 1950s in the treatment of hyperglycemia in diabetes mellitus. Besides this therapeutic use, sulfonylureas are also misused. For differential diagnosis of unclear hypoglycemia, screening is necessary to allow differentiation between a surreptitious misuse of sulfonylureas or pathophysiological causes like insulinoma. Before exploratory surgery or even subtotal pancreatectomy, misuse of sulfonylurea drugs should analytically be excluded.
