Feeding Difficulties

Understanding rare disease symptoms

Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.



What are Feeding Difficulties?

Feeding difficulties refer to any issues or problems with being able to suck, chew or swallow feed.

As a broader term they may refer to any problem with eating, and wanting to eat, including pickiness around food and/or issues feeding oneself.

What should I do next?

In some instances, feeding difficulties may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.

"Our road to diagnose the cause for our child's developmental delays was a 5-year journey that I can only describe as trying to take a road trip with no map. Now we have hope."
