Omega is a young girl who lives with her grandmother. Her mother died when she was just 5 months old. The grandmother reported that when the mother was pregnant, she was diagnosed with High Blood Pressure that was causing nosebleeds. She went for scanning and it was found that her heart was enlarged, she had kidney failure and damaged intestines. They were discharged from the hospital and things didn’t change until she took her last breath.
Omega’s grandmother is unable to adequately provide for her basic needs and nutritional requirements because she is elderly and is also looking after two other children. As a result, Omega is at risk of becoming malnourished. Omega’s BMI is 14.5 which means she is malnourished.
