Dysphagia Treatment in Lahore
Difficulty swallowing may make it difficult to take in enough food and/or drink, resulting in malnutrition or lack of fluid in the body (dehydration). It may make it difficult to take necessary medication, which may go on to cause further medical problems. It leads to a risk of food ‘going down the wrong way’ (aspiration) towards the lungs instead of the stomach. This can cause choking or pneumonia.
