From India:

My one-year-old baby has had a 95% pancreatectomy done to treat her diffuse PHHI (Persistent Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia of Infancy). She needs tube feeding during the night to keep her sugar levels up. Her eating is very, very slow. Is this normal? Is it because she doesn't feel hungry at all?


This is a very difficult situation, so I would advise you to discuss specifics with your endocrine team since they know you and your child the best.
