Hypoglycemia is characterized by a low concentration of blood glucose, which can in some cases cause a permanent
brain damage. The most common cause of hypoglycemia in neonates and infants is the overproduction of insulin. Such
hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is the most risky situation for the brain damage. In our review article, we focus on the
impact of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia in children on their further neurodevelopment.
