Neonatal hypoglycemia is the commonest metabolic problem encountered in newborn infants. Transient “hypoglycemia” can be viewed as an inevitable consequence of birth. Although it has been recognized for a long time, there is limited evidence-based consensus regarding the diagnosis, screening, and management of infants at risk for neonatal hypoglycemia. Some issues to be addressed in the workshop include: definition; risk factors; monitoring and screening; maternal management and prevention of neonatal hypoglycemia in an infant of a diabetic mother; the value of MRI as a diagnostic tool; and brain and blood glucose. The focus will be to identify knowledge gaps and propose a research agenda.
