Children s Hospital in Milwaukee, WI has indicated there are no other children with this combination in their care at this time. Do you know of any doctors who have patients with this combination?

ITS VERY DIFFICULT TO TREAT YOUNG DIABETES PATIENTS ASSOCIATED WITH SYNDROMES AS THEY MIGHT HAVE REPEATED EPISODES OF HYPOGLYCEMIA. SO IT IS NECESSARY FOR YOU TO CONSULT A PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST FOR THIS PROBLEMS.
