Congenital Hyperinsulinism Center

If you’re in America, this is the only place you can go. It’s the best chance you can give your child.
Lisa Robertson, whose son Richard was successfully cured — St. Louis, Mo.

Congenital hyperinsulinism (HI) is a disorder that causes hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in infants and children, and is the most common cause of persistent hypoglycemia in infants and children. Congenital HI is a rare disease, affecting 1 in 25,000 to 50,000 babies. Since most children’s hospitals encounter only one or two cases a year, it is important to receive medical care from an experienced Center, such as the Congenital Hyperinsulinism Center at CHOP.
