My granddaughter is 5 & has MCADD which is a metabolic disorder. Her body does not break down fat for energy so she has to eat a heart healthy diet & can not go hours without eating. She also can not eat anything that has coconut oil in it. When she was a baby she could not go past 2 hours without eating. She is now much better & can go 10 hours. My daughter & son-in-law would love to visit Aruba. Before they can book a vacation they need to know that if their daughter were to visit the island if the hospital would be able to handle her incase of an emergency. If my granddaughter were to get sick to the point where she could not keep down food she need to go to the hospital. She would need a D10 IV . If she were not to be able to be treated she could have seizures & ultimately possible death so you can see why it is very important to be sure that she can be treated where ever she may travel. I tried a few time emailing the hospital but never received a reply. Has anyone ever had a diabetic attack while in Aruba & had to go to the hospital for glucose? Are there any nurses on the forum that could help or does anyone know of a doctor at the hospital that we could call.
My husband & I are visiting Aruba the beginning of October & plan on bringing our granddaughter protocol letter from her specialist. We plan on speaking to the doctor at the resort & also possibly visiting the hospital.
