The Children's Hyperinsulinism Fund helps children in the UK and around the world who suffer from Congenital Hyperinsulinism. We are striving to find lifelong answers to the problems that these children face daily.
The Children's Hyperinsulinism Fund is a Fund within the Special Trustees Charity of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. The Fund's aim is to raise funds for research into Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI), also known as Persistent Hyperinsulinaemic Hypoglycaemia of Infancy (PHHI) and formerly known as Nesidioblastosis.
With the monies raised we hope to employ a full time Research Nurse, a Medical Research Fellow (Dr), Technicians/laboratory based people and equipment. Research is needed in many areas of CHI including feeding difficulties, long-term neurological implications, consequences of medical therapy and understanding the mechanisms regulating insulin secretion. These are just a few of the areas that need to be researched.
The Fund relies totally on voluntary support to fund our work. Giving just £3 per month by direct debit will help children with CHI
