Neurodevelopmental Defects In Early Childhood

Neonatal hypoglycemia is a fairly common occurrence and more importantly is a preventable cause of brain damage in infancy. It is diagnosed clinically by performing a heel-prick blood test and if glucose levels are found to be low (less than 47 mg/dl), the baby is given dextrose gel till normal levels are restored. In fact, this treatment was pioneered by Prof. Harding and her team in 2013.
