Neonatal hypoglycemia [NH]-avoidable cause of brain injury, common-influences 5 - 15% babies and 50% of at risk babies-linked with range of side effects . Ideal time of screening, threshold at which treatment avoids brain damage not clear. Glucose primary metabolic fuel for fetus. Glucose got from mother via carrier-modulated diffusion down a concentration gradient via the placenta . Fetal glucose amounts 80% of maternal amounts vary with alterations in maternal glucose amounts. In fetus function of insulin is like GH instead of controlling glucose amounts and liberation of insulin-takes place at lower insulin in fetus as compared to postnatal life .
