Advocacy Organizations

Congenital Hyperinsulinism International

CHI is the leading organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with hyperinsulinism (HI). HI is a life-threatening disorder that causes dangerously low blood sugar levels due to the over-production of insulin. Prolonged or severe low blood sugar can cause seizures, brain damage, and even death. CHI supports research toward better treatments and a cure, tirelessly advocates for timely diagnosis and improved standards of care, and supports people living with HI every step of the way.
