Not saying that everyone would need to change, we did for our daughter.
her life was more important. she almost died at age 1 year.
I brought her into the hospital comatose, and with a sugar of 8
that is non-existant. we were sent to another hospital which deals with
larger issues that are more critical. and they discovered her liver was marbleized
and the enzymes were in the thousands. she was not eating huge amounts
of regular food, she was on baby food. and I would mash reg potato's.
But, the formula contained carnitine which is essential in breaking down fats and
carrying toxins thru the liver.
so when I switched to Milk (whole) which was only six days after the formula, she
became ill with a viral infection,,and the underlying played significant role ,hand in
hand so to speak with the obvious.
for a while they could only treat the obvious, because not enough was known
about the underlying. it was very frustrating.
I decided (prior to) a real Dx that she needed vitamins daily (told this would not stop
it) and also when in crisis to go strictly to low fats.
or no fats.
four years later , they decided to give me this vital information. one which I
had already honed in on from age 2. as we had to many hospital stays for it
to keep happening.
and as her mother and advocate, i had to learn my and know my Sh_t in order to
keep her healthy and alive as many children who have this do not make it.
her Dx is # 15 in the world that is how rare. not many children are dx at birth.
and it mimicks Sids.
For me...I can eat anything as long as it's in moderation. I excersize everyday..eat butter drink whole milk etc. people have been living on these fattening things for years why stop now? I do keep clear of the fast food, but might eat things that are just as fattening.
Not saying you would be wrong fisz, you do nothing wrong oh virtual hubby of mine
theres a certain someone who is feeling a bit cagey today.
