According to Corience: An Independent European Platform on Congenital Heart Defects, " As many as 40–60% of children with congenital heart defects are undernourished.
Healthy babies double their weight in 6 months; however, children with congenital heart defects put on weight more slowly. Their growth is also affected by the heart defect.
Why do children with congenital heart disease not grow as other children do? The answer is because the heart defect makes them need more energy. Their diagnosis might also complicate feeding for several different reasons. Heart failure makes them too tired to feed. Some of them might have trouble keeping down their feeds. Others seem to have difficulty in coordinating breathing and nursing.
This episode will investiage what kinds of equipment might be needed to help a babe with a congenital heart defect if that baby cannot nurse or feed normally. Listen as one mother shares her experience with her baby -- who needed a feeding tube. We'll also talk with a clinical psychologist who specializes in early infancy and childhood as well as eating disorders and tube feeding. She works for the NoTube Limited Liability Corporation, which was founded to help children all over the world to overcome the severe condition of tube dependency. Discover how one mother and a company over six thousand miles apart helped one little boy wean successfully from his feeding tube without ever leaving home!

Tonight our topic for discussion is “Gastrointestinal Problems in Huntington's disease”
Also read Dr. Goodman’s article http://hddrugworks.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=341&Itemid=30
Dr. Goodman writes, “Human study shows that inflammation in the esophagus (swallowing tube) and stomach is common and occurs more frequently in Huntington's disease (HD) as it progresses. Study also shows that individuals often do not complain. Lower GI function has not been investigated in individuals with HD, but if mouse models of HD are predictive, we can expect problems there too. But the biggest contributor to gut distress in HD is likely due to medication side effects, less intake of water and more sedentary lifestyle as the disease progresses…”

Each year a new fad diet comes out...gluten-free, fat-free, sugar-free, carb-free...it seems to never end! Some people try them just to jump on the latest craze, while others hope they will solve their gastrointestinal (GI) problems. Unfortunately, fad diets often lead to misdiagnosis for many people as they try to treat unpleasant GI symptoms – they may even ignore their symptoms or be too embarrassed to bring them up with their doctor. What people may not know is that they could be living with an under-recognized condition called exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, or EPI. Dr. Roshini Raj returns to the Ask MomRN Show to teach us about EPI and the danger of fad diets. Dr. Roshini Raj is a gastroenterologist at NYU Medical Center/Tisch Hospital in New York City, a Today show contributor, a bethenny contributor, the Good Day NY Medical Correspondent, and the Medical Editor of Health Magazine.

Strategies of Success
Host Brian A Cohen DTM
On this week’s show Joyce and Mike welcome Ricky Safer (CEO) and Joanne Grieme (Board Chair) from PSC Partners Seeking a Cure, a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. PSC is a chronic liver disease where the bile ducts become impaired, eventually leading to deterioration of the liver. It is commonly associated with inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis.
We will discuss the difficulties patients often encounter in getting an accurate diagnosis of this condition. Until it is properly diagnosed, it is not possible to set out a reasonable treatment plan.
People with PSC often need a liver transplant. One young man has had three liver transplants and is doing well. We talk about liver transplants.
As with so many rare diseases, the patient becomes responsible for navigating the medical system, arbitrating among the advice of many specialists, and keeping track of appointments and records. Ricky and Joanne share what they have learned about dealing with the complexity of gastrointestinal complaints.
Stephanie Sugars has been moderating an online discussion group for families deaing with Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome since 2000. Over the years she has seen lots of changes.
Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome is a genetic disease. One tiny change in the STK11 gene, a tumor suppressor gene, removes one level of protection against tumor growth. With this alteration, a person is at increased risk of benign polyps and cancerous tumors of the digestive tract which may cause blockages. It may also lead to tumors of the pancreas, breast, and reproductive tract.
An early sign of the disease can be discolored spots on the iips and mucous membranes.
Its gastric symptoms look a great deal like those of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP), which is caused by alterations in different genes. The rate of diagnosis varies widely, and depends on the doctor remembering to think about this rare condition. However a careful diagnosis is very important, as it helps the family and the medical team know what to watch out for.
Joyce and Mike speak with Stephanie about her history with Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome.

What gluten is and where you will find it – including your health and beauty aids.
Ideas for how to live a gluten-free life.
Gluten, a protein found in most cereal grains, is perhaps the protein most consumed in greater quantities than any other protein. It has long been known that a small percentage of the population is intolerant to gluten and gastrointestinal upset – including diarrhea, bloating, and flatulence – result from its consumption.
Join Dr. Ritamarie as she discusses how one little protein could result in such widespread symptoms, and what the solution to this widespread problem of gluten intolerance might be. The answer to a myriad of health challenges can indeed be as basic as changing your ideas about the bread you eat.
