Taking a break from my usual writing, these are my thoughts today. What they don’t tell you when you’re born prematurely with cerebral palsy is that you may have a whole host of other issues to deal with.
For anyone who is born premature and who has cerebral palsy may have to deal with reflux and digestion issues, it’s also easy to struggle with CP and weight loss through reflux. There is no information out there to explain that every time you bring up acid, the body is failing to absorb nutrients and that causes weight loss.
We tend to have to adjust our diets so that we eat without dealing with these problems, particularly at night. Reflux and digestion problems are more prevalent in twins and being born premature. If you’re unlucky enough to be premature and have cerebral palsy, it makes it slightly more difficult.
We need to make sure we put on weight, eat foods that agree with us, take supplements to encourage wellness, particularly probiotics.
Our biggest challenge is to make sure we stay well.
