Thank you for visiting the first-ever website devoted to Children with Hypoglycemia!
Whether your child, from infant to teenager, has officially been diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia (RH) or you just think he or she is suffering from this condition, this site is for you. Parents, children, caregivers, teachers, nurses – even doctors — can benefit from the wealth of information you will find here.
My name is Roberta Ruggiero, and I am founder and president of The Hypoglycemia Support Foundation, Inc., which just celebrated its 35th year. Although I hosted monthly meetings for over 20 years in the South Florida area, for the past 15 years my audience has mostly been reached through the internet. This has given me the opportunity to hear from and touch the lives of more than a million suffering hypoglycemics from all over the world!
The HSF is world renowned for providing support, advocacy and information about the causes, prevention and management of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Throughout the years, our mission statement and focus has remained the same. We have worked diligently to inform the public about the harmful effects of a high sugar diet, the biggest culprit contributing to hypoglycemia. However, it was not until the last few years that the medical community and the media whole-heartedly joined in our efforts.
