Answer

Evaluation and treatment of a child with hypoglycemia requires a team approach. Typical consultations include a pediatric endocrinologist for initial evaluation and treatment, depending on the results of the evaluation. Consultation with a geneticist familiar with various metabolic disorders is helpful. A nutritionist is necessary to provide input and instruction regarding treatment for various metabolic disorders and to ensure proper caloric intake in children with inadequate stores.
