In brief: A diagnosis!
Because hypoglycemia is dangerous for a developing brain, it is critical to get a diagnosis and treatment for an infant who has hypoglycemia.
If the infant is having low blood sugars please have the baby evaluated by the pediatrician asap. Metabolic disease, pituitary gland problems, hyperinsulinemia are a few possibilities. Treatment depends on diagnosis.
