In brief: Blood insulin level

Diagnosis by blood sugar and Insulin levels in the blood.
Low blood sugar with high Insulin confirms diagnosis. To detect the tumor in the pancreas, (most are small), so detection may be difficult; studies performed, fine cut ct scan, mri, octreotide scan, and/or endoscopic ultrasound. Surgeons detect these tumors even where they are not seen on radiological testing with ultrasound during surgery.
