Is a high calorie diet sensible to promote weight gain?

| 0

Our son with Noonan’s hadn’t put any weight on for 2 years although he is growing. The dietician had said to put him on a high calorie diet, basically to give him as much fat as possible can. Was this the best thing to do?

Usually the first and most crucial question when a child’s weight wasn’t increasing, was whether the child was growing. Many young people with Noonan Syndrome were lightly built. There are many issues to consider with diet as a balanced diet is usually preferred and there is also the issue of the lymphatic function in coping with fatty foods which can be compromised in some people with Noonans.
