There are many opinions when it comes to Dysphagia, but how can you distinguish between fact and opinion? Here are some key facts for you to learn:
Dysphagia can affect anyone at any age. From a very early age, to the end of our lifetime, Dysphagia may come and go into our life experience, as a result of outside factors. Gloup provides a solution to this to ease discomfort and distress when taking tablets or supplements.
Dysphagia can be seemingly temporary or permanent. Depending upon the cause of Dysphagia and often the life-stage of the individual in question, Dysphagia may be a temporary condition (for example when recovering from surgery) or permanent (for example when suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia)
Dysphagia is not ‘only psychological’. It can manifest itself in both physical and mental symptoms, but Dysphagia is a real condition that creates frustration for many and must be taken seriously as such.
Some people may claim that the struggle to swallow tablets or other forms of medication is ‘all in the mind’. This is simply not true. There may be many reasons why someone has difficulty swallowing; these could include physical causes such as:
- Large tonsils
- Cleft lip or cleft palate
- Dental problems
Plus many, many more.
