- (Somogyi Effect) In diabetes a rebound phenomenon of reactive hyperglycemia in response to a proceeding period of relative hypoglycemia that has increased secretion of hyperglycemic agents (adrenaline, norepinephrine, glucagon, cortisol, and growth hormone) described in diabetic patients given too much insulin who developed unrecognized nocturnal hypoglycemia that made them hyperglycemic (suggesting insufficient insulin) when tested the next morning. It may be mistaken for inadequate control.
