The Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (CHI) CHI is a leading nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults living with Congenital Hyperinsulinism (HI).
CHI provides a world of information, resources, and support to the HI community. CHI advocates on behalf of patients for better treatments and access to care. CHI is dedicated to increasing awareness of the disorder as it leads to more timely diagnosis and the best outcomes for patients.

Cooperation across borders fosters important advances in medicine. HI is a life-threatening disorder that causes dangerously low blood sugar levels. Prolonged or severe low blood sugar can cause seizures, brain damage, and even death. We hope you will partner with us to prevent damage and death, search for better treatments, and improve the quality of life for all HI patients.
