Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you 9-year-old son has diabetes and nephrosis. It is essential that you should consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will have to assess your son's weight and his present diet which must be adapted not only to accommodate his diabetes and his medications, but also his kidney problem. The dietitian will work out an individual diet prescription for your son so that he can lose weight and also handle both these medical conditions.
Wishing you and your son all the best
