Brief Answer:
No sugar snacks and butter milk are advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I had gone through your query and understood your concerns.

Sir, In a very weak condition, you can opt for electral. But not always. Keep him on no sugar snacks available n the market in between the meals which prevent him from being hungry and weak. Butter milk also is very good for him in such conditions.


Hope this guides you. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.
Wishing your father good health.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you

Hi, my dad feels a pain in his stomach where his doctor told him he may have an annurism. He also has a heart murmur. He just tested his blood glucose and it is high, even though he has not eaten in about 4 hours. Is he in any immediate danger of the annurism because of his heart murmur and high glucose level?
