Does anyone have problems with eating with PKD? I have an 8 yr old daughter dx at age 3 due to UTI's. She has hypertension and is on Enapril 3cc twice daily. She has only gained 1/2 lb in a year and grown 1/2 inch. Based on testing her kidney function is still "normal range". She has ADPKD and no one on my side or my ex husbands side has an kidney issues. How do I get her to eat more? She is on Celexa to try to make her hungry and drinks pedisue and boost plus but food issues are HUGE. We have seen many many therapists and left them stumped basically and now have seen 3 different nutritionists. Can anyone help me out there? I am getting so frustrated with her not eating. She picks out her own food at store or gives me a list, I make her whatever she requests at this point to make sure she is getting something. Her school allows her to "graze" all day at school. We now have her once a week "helping" the school nurse at lunchtime so we know at least 1 day she eats her lunch and once a week she mentors a 1st grader at that lunch time so she gets to be in cafe 2xs that day. Please help if you can. MANY MANY THANKS

And of any success or side effects that were experienced....
