Both insulin-induced and spontaneous hypoglycemia were associated with higher risk of in-hospital mortality in a retrospective study published in Diabetes Care. Hospitalized patients who experienced at least one episode of hypoglycemia were significantly more likely to die than those who did not experience hypoglycemia, though the mortality rate was lower in patients on insulin therapy.
