Postural or orthostatic hypotension (OH) is defined as a sustained and persistent drop in systolic blood pressure (SBP) ≥20 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) ≥10 mm Hg within 3 minutes of achieving a standing position.
Generalized condition caused by partial or total failure of anterior pituitary gland’s hormones: adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), growth hormone (GH), and prolactin.

Hypokalemic periodic paralysis (HPP) is a channelopathy characterized by episodic skeletal muscle weakness in the setting of a transient decrease in serum potassium (K) levels (1,2).
Hypokalemia is defined as a serum potassium concentration <3.5 mEq/L (normal range: 3.5–5.0 mEq/L).
Hypoglycemia defined by Whipple triad:Low plasma glucose level (≤60 mg/dL);Hypoglycemic symptoms that are relieved when glucose level is corrected;Occurs commonly in patients with diabetes receiving sulfonylurea or insulins; less commonly in patients without diabetes
Abnormally low concentration of glucose in circulating blood of diabetic; often referred to as an insulin reaction
