Secular Trends in the Presentation and Management of Functioning Insulinoma at the Mayo Clinic, 1987–2007

The cohort of functioning insulinomas consisted of 237 patients (135 women, 57%), aged 50, 17–86 yr (median, range) with a body mass index of 27.8, 17.5–53.8 kg/m2 and 1, 1–14 tumors per patient. Malignant tumors occurred in 10 patients (4%).

You don't have to be fat to suspect insulinoma.

This is an excellent mayo reports of their series.
