A place for everyone
The Hippo House began because congenital hyperinsulinism (HI), came into our families life; with the birth of our daughter. HI is the most serious cause of persistent severe hypoglycemia in infants and young children.
After more than six years living with hypoglycemia and collaborating in improving the quality of life of those affected by HI in different areas, we have seen that the most important thing for families is to feel supported from the start.
That’s why we want new diagnoses; to find faster people in the same situation.
Together we're stronger
WE WANT TO PUT OUR TWO CENTS FOR ALL RARE DISEASES CAUSING HYPOGLYCEMIA AND FOR THAT WE NEED YOUR COLLABORATION
For what unites us
In The Hippo House we want to work for what unites us, not for what separates us.
We know a lot about congenital hyperinsulinism and hypoglycemia, but very little about other rare diseases that also cause recurrent hypoglycemia, such as some glycogen storage disease, fatty acid disorders, etc.
That is why, if you know more and you know: other associations, or groups of patients of your disease; we will be very grateful if you could share with us any information.
That ‘s the quickest way to have it online 😉
YOU NEVER KNOW WHO MIGHT NEED IT!
