Sheehan's syndrome is a rare cause of recurrent hypoglycemia. We present a case of a middle aged woman who presented with recurrent life threatening hypoglycemia. Based on a past history of severe post partum hemmorhage and a clinical picture of myxedema and secondary amennorhea, laboratory and neuroimaging was undertaken to confirm a diagnosis of Sheehan's syndrome. The patient responded to treatment with thyroxine and steroids in replacement doses. The case report emphasises the importance of early suspicion and management of this easily missed and treatable condition.
