The treatment plan for hypoglycemia will depend on your child’s age and the severity of the disorder. As an immediate treatment option for low blood sugar, your child may be given something with sugar in it, such as juice, milk or a hard candy. In very severe cases whereby the child may have fainted or may be having seizures, oral administration of glucose may not be possible, a hormone called ‘glucagon’, helps raise blood sugar levels quickly, may be injected. Your child’s paediatrician will provide specific guidelines for treating your child's hypoglycemia, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
You can be assured that your child will receive multidisciplinary healthcare at the Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, the only internationally accredited hospital of Pakistan. Talk with your doctor at the Children’s Hospital Service Line at the Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, about any treatment before you try it to find out how useful it might be.
