Dysphagia: A Swallowing Problem


Some children may have trouble swallowing. This condition is commonly called dysphagia where food, may it be liquid or solid, cannot pass easily through a child’s mouth and throat. The symptoms include choking during eating or drinking, spitting the food, and often contracting respiratory infections, among others. If not treated, this can lead to other serious problems, such as pneumonia and poor nutrition. Thus, seeking immediately seeking professional help is important. Among the treatment for dysphagia include feeding therapy, changing a child’s positioning while eating, or changing a child’s diet fitted for their condition. In serious cases, a tube may be inserted through their nose or stomach to facilitate their feeding.
