My child is 9 years old, suffers from Mediterranean Fever, is there any food he should avoid or has a bad effect on him (food increases disease symptoms)?
A low-fat diet is recommended it lessens the attacks. One side effect of colchicine therapy is lactose intolerance, so if one experiences abdominal discomfort, such as bloating, a lactose-free diet may improve symptoms.
However, it would be best to seek medical advice in case of medication related to children, wish your child all the best, please take care.
