Learn more - FAOD

To avoid fasting, think about:

  • Length of overnight sleep for child or adult when well and not sick
  • Most children and adults with a FAOD need to eat often throughout waking hours (~3-6 hours)
  • Eating/drinking around the clock when an individual is ill
  • Fasting times vary from person to person
  • A fasting state, especially when ill, can trigger a metabolic crisis leading to lethargy and hospitalizations
