Congenital hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a condition treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) which causes the production of high levels of insulin. If your child has CHI, this can cause their blood glucose level to drop too low (hypoglycaemia).
Transient hyogammaglobulinaemia of infancy (THI) is the name for a condition in which the immune system matures more slowly than usual, but eventually functions entirely normally. This information sheet from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains the causes, symptoms and treatment of transient hypogammaglobulinaemia of infancy (THI) and where to get help.

A blood glucose test is a fairly common procedure that's carried out regularly in hospitals, like Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), and clinics. The test is to find out how much glucose (sugar) you have in your blood.
Lanreotide is used to treat persistently low blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia) caused by the body producing too much insulin (hyperinsulinism). This information from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) describes lanreotide injections, how they are given and some of its side effects.
