A 2 day old newborn suffered brain damage after medical professionals failed to diagnose an uncommon inborn metabolic disorder called hyperinsulinemia, which resulted in severe hypoglycemia after he was born leading to cerebral palsy. He was discharged from hospital with a low temperature and poor appetite, caused by his low blood sugar level, which his parents deemed negligent by nurses and doctors at the hospital. Subsequent contact with the hospital in regard to their son not feeding and having a low blood sugar level was not rectified. They were awarded compensation for previous and ongoing medical costs, and for pain and suffering.
