The average person swallows up to 1200 times per day. For most of us we do this without thinking - however for many people swallowing is impaired by a condition called Dysphagia.Dysphagia is a medical term for swallowing difficulty and may be caused by impairment of the different parts of the mouth or throat. Dysphagia varies in severity, but what is common is a difficulty with swallowing foods and/or fluids which can result in malnutrition or dehydration. For many people with dysphagia, food thickeners and supplements are critical to their dysphagia management - and Dr. MacLeod's can help.
