Summary – Young siblings Yamuna Sri (7 yrs old) and Gopi Krishnan (5 yrs old) from North Chennai, were diagnosed with Persistent Hyperinsulinemic Hypoglycemia of Infancy (a condition that causes individuals to have abnormally high levels of insulin, a hormone that helps to control blood sugar levels). They are being treated at the Institute of Child Health, Egmore. Dr. Poovazhagi – Prof. Diabetic Clinic ICH & HC prescribed Diazoxide 50 Mg tablets as a long term medication and this costs Rs. 9,600/- per month for each child. The father of the children works as a barber, so his monthly income is not sufficient to procure the medication for both the children and therefore requires financial aid.
