About

why "we have HI hopes"

My son Jackson was diagnosed with Hyperinsulinism (HI) in September 2016 at Texas Children's Hospital, in Houston, TX when he was 4 months old.

We were fortunate enough to meet the team at Congenital Hyperinsulinism International and decided to start this ETSY shop to raise awareness and to donate some of our proceeds from our sales to their charitable organization.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism
Congenital hyperinsulinism (HI) is the most frequent cause of severe, persistent hypoglycemia in newborn babies and children. In most countries it occurs in approximately 1/25,000 to 1/50,000 births. About 60% of babies with HI develop hypoglycemia during the first month of life. An additional 30% will be diagnosed later in the first year and the remainder after that. With early treatment and aggressive prevention of hypoglycemia, brain damage can be prevented. However, brain damage can occur in children with HI if their condition is not recognized or if treatment is ineffective in the prevention of hypoglycemia.
