Financial Concerns for Patients with CSID

Often, reaching a diagnosis of Congenital Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency (CSID) is a long and complicated process. The process may result in large medical bills, which may add stress to a family budget. Engaging the services of a financial counselor may be wise.

In addition, buying specialty food items for individuals with CSID can be expensive. In the United States, it is possible to obtain tax deductions for the costs of food items required for special diets. This can only be accomplished if you itemize your tax return documents. Certain guidelines apply. It is suggested that you consult a qualified tax professional for guidance about your unique situation.

Financial concerns related to CSID treatment may be discussed with your physician. Financial support programs are in place to help minimize the costs of care for individuals with CSID.
