The Wishing Tree
We dream of a world where hypoglycemia does not exist …
And we know that it will take a long time to arrive!
Notice that we said “and” instead of “but“. “But” focuses you in two completely opposite directions.
We want to help you cope with hypoglycemia in an empowering way!
WITHOUT ANY "IFS" OR "BUTS"
WE DIDN'T WANT TO CROSS WITH THE HIPOGLYCEMIA AND WE DID.
WE HAD MANY DREAMS DURING PREGNANCY AND THEY CHANGED.
AND WE WANT TO GIVE TO OUR CHILDREN
THE SAME LIFE WE DREAMT FOR OUR "HEALTHY" CHILD
We didn't want to live with blood sugar drops and they came...
When you fall flat on your face because of a rare disease causing hypoglycemia, your life becomes chaotic.
That initial chaos gives way to uncertainty, to millions of doubts, guilt and fears that you didn’t even know existed.
We decided to change all “what if my child cannot…?” For many, “How can I help my child to…?”
Then, we decided to go further and we asked ourselves many “How I explain to my child…?”
Yet, we think on answering with what our children like best: drawings, stories, imagination, dreams…
IDENTIFY THE SYMPTOMS
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A BABY TO EXPRESS IN WORDS WHEN FEELING SICK; THAT'S WHY WE ARE WORKING IN DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THAT WILL ALLOW LEARNING WITHIN THE FAMILY TO IDENTIFY LOW BLOOD SUGAR SYMPTOMS THROUGH IMAGES AND TO CONTINUE TO KEEP ON LEARNING THROUGH TALES, VIDEOS AND GAMES...
ARE YOU INTERESTED?

YOU WILL FIND IT IN SOCIAL MEDIA
Adventures on Planet Sugar
With the help of different experts (doctors, teachers, psychologists, etc.) we are working on some educational stories for congenital hyperinsulinism (HI).
HI is not only the most frequent cause of hypoglycemia, it is also the disease with which we live.
Therefore, we dream that we could explain to our children how the disease works and to be autonomous in the management of it from a younger age.
Without forgetting our own ways of learning that we also have as parents.

Be Hippo, My Friend
As you see, we have a lot of ideas, dreams and good intentions.
Do you lend us a hand?
So we will be able to do many more things by and for children suffering from non-diabetic hypoglycemia;)
Thanks a million!
