This article analyzes symptomatic and asymptomatic hypoglycemia of the newborn, and a control series, for a period between one and four years after birth. During the three-year period from 1967-69, 339 newborn were treated for hypoglycemia at the Department of Pediatrics, University of Oulu, in Finland. Excluded from the study were 181 newborn with additional diseases such as asphyxia, respiratory distress syndrome, infectious disease, hemolytic disease, cerebral hemorrhage, or manifest congenital anomaly. The hypoglycemia of most of the infants born in the University of Oulu Hospital was found during a blood glucose screening of the high-risk groups. The blood glucose level was also determined for all the symptomatic newborn, including those outside the high-risk groups. The blood glucose was recorded three times daily during the first 2 to 4 days of life. In conclusion, 151 children diagnosed as having hypoglycemia during the first few days of life were followed up one to four years after birth. Of the 151 infants, 8 had hypoglycemia with convulsions, 77 had only hypoglycemia without convulsions but with other symptoms, and 66 had been asymptomatic.
