Congenital hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia is the most common cause of hyperinsulinism in early infancy. By providing genetic testing for individuals diagnosed with this condition our research aims to provide novel insights into mechanisms of insulin secretion

Since the first referral in 2003 the molecular genetics laboratory in Exeter has provided testing for over 2350 individuals diagnosed with congenital hyperinsulinism from  78 different countries around the world. This work has provided an accurate genetic diagnosis for over 45% of these individuals and their family members.
