Child had low blood sugar, elevated WBC, no urination after a seizure and breathing difficulty. On beta blockers, Was diagnosed with HCM as an infant. Is low blood sugar level related to HCM?

My Niece, who is almost three had a seizure and stopped breathing last night. She was diagnosed with HCM at three months and has been on beta blockers ever since, three times a day. When she arrived to the hospital her white blood count was elevated, blood sugar level 19, and not urinating. The previous two days she had a severe case diarrhea . She is on her way to Stanford children hospital rite now. I just wanted to see if there was any ideas of why she had such low blood sugar , and if this could have something to do with her HCM.

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your niece looking to the given history here I could say that in this case the complete medical history along with the investigative reports needs to come on any decision to advise in better way but if the child is under the care of best pediatric unit then no need to worry bout this you can discus with the doctor for prognosis, hope this information helps you, have a nice day.
