On this episode of the RLP podcast, I discuss glucagon pharmacology.
It is important to remember with glucagon that patients will still require glucose following administration to improve their blood sugar numbers.
Glucagon is typically reserved for moderate to severe episodes of hypoglycemia when patients have altered consciousness.
The major adverse effect with glucagon is nausea and vomiting which often may prevent oral intake of glucose for some time after administration.
I discuss important drug interactions on the podcast, be sure to check out my latest project which is a 200+ page book on managing drug interactions in primary care.
