What to tell parents

In vulnerable babies, explain why blood sugar monitoring is important. If treatment is required, explain this is likely to be for a short period until enteral feeds tolerated, and/or underlying cause treated. If persisting hypoglycaemia, explain importance of investigations and update with results. The need to keep the baby normoglycaemic because of potential effects on the brain should be discussed. Further information will depend on subsequent diagnoses. If the hypoglycaemia is severe or prolonged, the baby will need neurodevelopmental follow-up.
