Overview

Effective measures for the secondary prevention of Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) include nutritional assessment, assessment of the cardiac and neurologic status of the patient, musculoskeletal issues assessment, dental evaluation, ophthalmology evaluation, and audiology evaluation.

Growth management

  • A complete nutritional assessment which includes weight/height on growth charts of the patient
  • Encourage the patient for frequent small meals to maximize calorie intake
  • Advise on adequate oral hydration should be considered
