From Missouri:

What are the blood sugar levels of an infant (under one year)? Our 8 month old daughter has been having seizures and we think it might be related to her blood sugar levels. She "usually" (but not 100%) gets them when she hasn't eaten in 3 to 4 hours. When we did a prick test with a home monitor, the levels were 80 right after she ate and they would drop to 72 two or three hours after she ate.


The blood sugar levels of an infant less than one year are the same of an adult. The levels you report are not indicative of hypos. I'd suggest you ask your pediatrician for more help.
