I would, of course, still delay solids until at least 4 months of age. ...Read more

With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

Daily chore..: Sorry to say, but reactive hypoglycemia, which is typically what we experience, is not curable.
