Most common causes include patients with diabetes due to medications, nephropathy with oral hypoglycemic drugs, faulty dietary habits and other endocrine causes. In a patient presenting with recurrent hypoglycemia with central hypothyroidism, Sheehan syndrome must be suspected as diagnosis can prevent disastrous complications
