Some treatments may be recommended for some kids but not for others. When treatment is required, it is usually required for the rest of one's life. The following are common therapies for kids with VLCAD:
- Avoid fasting for an extended period of time.
- A low fat, high carbohydrate diet is sometimes advised. Carbohydrates provide the body with a variety of sugars that can be used as energy.
- In reality, for youngsters requiring this medication, the majority of their diet should consist of carbohydrates (bread, pasta, fruit, etc.) and protein (lean meat and low-fat dairy foods).
- Medium-Chain Triglyceride oil (MCT oil) is frequently utilized in the diet of persons with VLCADD. This particular oil contains medium-chain fatty acids, which can be used for energy in modest doses.
- You can get advice from your metabolic specialist or a dietitian on how to utilize this supplement.
- To obtain MCT oil, you will need to obtain medication from your physician. L-carnitine may be beneficial to some children.
- This is a natural and harmless ingredient that aids the body's energy production.
