Over weight / obesity

My daughter is a special child, mildly autistic, borderline IQ. She also has Epilepsy. Due to medication and tendency to overeat she is over weight. She also has PCOD and sleep apnea (for which she wears CPAP). I want to take her to a Nutritionist / Dietician who can help her as doctors says half the issue will be resolve once the weight is under control.

Hello mam....yes doctor is right half of the issues will be resolved if weight issues are sorted out. Mam I will be glad to help you but she needs to be evaluated and diet need to be prescribed according to her medical history and daily activity. There is special diet for autistic children, so I request you to meet dietitian and get the diet chat planned.
