I’ve Been Diagnosed or My Child Has Been Diagnosed with CSID. Now What?

Being diagnosed with Congenital Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency (CSID) may present an immediate, overwhelming feeling of disappointment; but it is important to understand that CSID is not a fatal disorder. The gastrointestinal symptoms of CSID often have a substantial impact on your life, but with consistent compliance to dietary management and proper treatment, life can return to a sense of normalcy.

Those with CSID typically require a specialized diet and/or treatment with Sucraid® (sacrosidase) Oral Solution. Working with a gastroenterologist will help you understand the importance of dietary management, and a registered dietitian can help ensure that you receive proper nutrition within the constraints of your restricted diet.
