Armando David was diagnoses with Tuberous Sclerosis when he was 5 months old. He started having infant seizures and that is how we found about his sickness. He has being in treatment since then but nothing seems to control the seizures he has. None of the medications we have given him have being able to control these infant seizures. We have tried everything the doctors have recommended us, however nothing has seem to work. He has to be in constant drug care and health surveillance. He needs to get lab procedures constantly, (i.e MRI’s, blood tests, drugs screening, electroencephalogram, liver, heart, ultrasounds and other organs conditions tests) due to the numerous drugs he takes. Currently Armando David will turn 5 YO in August 8th, as he grows additional medical equipment has being required to support him, for example a wheelchair to move him around the community and a helmet to avoid hitting his head against any furniture around the house.
Armando David takes regular visits to specialized doctors to take care of him and review his medical condition. Unfortunately his sickness is not curable, but must be treated in order to improve his life expectations.
