Poor Isla

Hi ladies

looking for a bit of advice, poor Isla is having a right rough time of it lately.
She has asthma and has got a stinking cold which she is just not shifting but the doc also thinks she has reflux ( she is sick lots :sadface: )
She is on medication for her asthma and the reflux but she is just so run down. I feel like she is always ill just now.

I would like to try and build up her immune system a bit as she catches everything. Our diet is ok and we get loads of exercise and fresh air.
Are there any foods that are really good for this kinda thing ( not citrus though 'cos thy make her sick loads :rolleyes: )

Thank you for any suggestions

Sorry Nic didn't want to read and run, other than the normal healthy as many portions of fresh fruit and veg a day I dont really know are there things called super foods?? Try googling your question and it may link you to some relevant websites and information, also perhaps your gp or Asthma Nurse specialist could give you some information. xxx Sorry not been much help have I xxx

Hey Glitzy

her cold seems to be clearing up a bit, she only sounds like she smokes 60 a day instead of 100 but she is still being sick.
They started her on the lowest dose for it, they said it is not common in children. A lot of babies get it but they tend to grow out of it. I am hoping it is going to pass quickly. It doesn't bother her that much but sometimes it upsets her when she is sick at school. I told her to tell her friends that she has a dodgy tummy but it should get better soon. Her teachers are good, telling her the medicine takes a wee while to work etc.
She is due back at the doc next week so i will have to wait and see what he says.

Am i okay ? truthfully not really but just have to get on with it, at the moment i am swinging between stress and worry with a wee shot of panic thrown in every now and again just to keep me on my toes :snigger:

How you ?

Hi Nic, superfoods are great. I know brocolli, peas and blackberries are among them - also that linseed stuff that you can mix into soup/porridge etc. Tamah has bad asthma too, and it is so hard on them. Thinking of you xx
Keep smiling :happy:

Could Isla have a food allergy you're not aware of. You may of already looked into this but I know as a child dairy and red meat made me throw-up, I was also allergic to some food colourings and they gave me headaches.

Must be horrid for poor Isla, hope you find the answer very soon.

Hi Saffy
Thanks, that was my initial thought but after keeping an eye on what she is eating there just does not seem to be any sort of pattern.
Today she had dry cereal ( i know, minging but she likes it ) and water at breakfast and was sick most of the morning at school yet she had the same the last day she had breakfast at her gran's and was fine till after lunchtime. Some days she is fine all day and is sick in the evening, there just does not seem to be any pattern.
There are certain thing that do make her worse, citrus fruit for example.

Hi Nic,

It does sound like it's reflux making Isla sick, how awful for her. I'm sure you've done lots of searches yourself, the only advice on the net I can find is: to avoid carbonated drinks, chocolate, caffeine, and foods that are high in fat or contain a lot of acid (eg citrus fruits as you've found) or spices. Also to eat small meals often rather than 3 meals a day. Here's the link http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/gerinchildren/

Fingercrossed it settles down very quickly.

Hey Saffy

Was back at the doc today, he is referring her up to the hospital.
Has old me to stop giving her the medicine, says there is no point in giving her drugs if they are having no effect.
He is going to ask for the app to be sent out asap, telling them that she is missing school. I was really quite impressed with him, a doc that talked sense !
