Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism (HI) is a genetic disorder in which the insulin cells of the pancreas secrete too much insulin. Excess insulin causes low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). In children with HI, the secretion of insulin is not properly regulated, causing excess insulin secretion and low blood sugar.
