I just read your post and I too have a son who suffers from hypoglycemia. They believe he has a metabolic hypoglycemic disorder since he goes low up to 14 mornings a month. We've been to CHOP and have also seen Dr. Stanley. My son's has had all of the testing and we've been at overnight stays 3 times there for evalutation and testing. They originally gave us the diagnosis of ketotic hypoglycemia but because he goes low ALOT, they are unsure if that truely fits his symptoms. It does make me feel better knowing that I'm not the only one going through this. We live in a tiny little town outside of Lebanon, PA and it is hard getting people to understand what we are going through. Thanks!
