Tasked by the hyperinsulinism department of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to create an informative and educational video, we created a dynamic and visually engaging animation, aimed to educate parents whose children suffer from the medical condition Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI). The video is narrated by a member of the medical staff, to give familiarity to parents who are present at the children’s hospital.
This excerpt from the animation explains the difference between normal and abnormal insulin and glucose levels within the bloodstream of a child affected by CHI.
(1) Congenital Hyperinsulinism (CHI) is a very complex medical condition that presents with severe hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose) in the neonatal, infancy and childhood period. (2) It is characterised by inappropriate and unregulated insulin secretion from beta-cells in the pancreas.
