Learn how a minimal fat diet can help to reduce chylothorax.</p><h2>What is a chylothorax?</h2> <p>A chylothorax (say: KY-low-THOR-ax) is a build-up of fluid in the space around the lungs. The fluid, called chyle (say: kile), is a normal fluid that is made when the body digests fat. When it builds up, it puts pressure on the lungs and makes breathing more difficult. </p> <h2>Treating a chylothorax</h2> <p>The doctors often drain the extra fluid from around the lungs with a chest tube. Sometimes, that is all that is needed. But if the body keeps making too much chyle, your child may be put on a special diet. This diet will lower the amount of chyle your child's body makes. This will help prevent a build-up from happening again. </p><h2>Key points</h2> <ul> <li>A chylothorax is a build-up of fluid called chyle in the space around the lungs. This puts pressure on the lungs and makes breathing more difficult.</li> <li>It is treated by draining the extra fluid from around the lungs and if necessary by following a minimal fat diet. </li> <li>When cooking use low-fat methods such as steaming, broiling, barbecuing or baking, and do not add any oil, butter, margarine or other fats.</li> </ul><h2>Minimal fat diet</h2><p>Your child's doctor or dietitian will help you with the details of your child's diet. In general, your child should avoid eating fats. The less fat in your child's diet, the less chyle the body will make. </p><div class="akh-series"><div class="row"><div class="col-md-12"> <figure><img src="https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/Fat_nutrition_label_CHART_IMG_EN.jpg" alt="" /> </figure> <h3>Always read food labels</h3><p>The goal of this diet is to lower the amount of fat your child eats.

Apprenez comme un régime alimentaire faible en gras peut contribuer à réduire le chylothorax.</p><h2>Qu’est-ce qu’un chylothorax?</h2> <p>Un chylothorax (prononcez : qui-lo-to-rax) désigne une accumulation de liquide dans l’espace autour des poumons. Ce liquide, appelé chyle (prononcez : kile), est un liquide produit de façon normale lorsque le corps digère du gras. Lorsque ce liquide s’accumule, il cause une pression sur les poumons et la respiration devient plus difficile. </p> <h2>Traitement d’un chylothorax</h2> <p>Les médecins drainent souvent le liquide excédentaire autour des poumons à l’aide d’un drain thoracique. Parfois, cela suffit. Mais si le corps continue à produire trop de chyle, votre enfant devra adopter un régime alimentaire particulier pour réduire la quantité de chyle que son corps produira. Cela évitera toute nouvelle accumulation. </p><h2>​À retenir</h2> <ul> <li>Un chylothorax est une accumulation de liquide, appelé chyle, dans l’espace autour des poumons. Cette accumulation cause une pression sur les poumons et rend la respiration plus difficile.</li> <li>On traite ce problème en drainant le liquide excédentaire autour des poumons et, si nécessaire, en suivant un régime alimentaire faible en gras.</li> <li>Utilisez des méthodes de cuisson à faible teneur en gras comme la cuisson à la vapeur, au gril, au barbecue ou au four, et n’ajoutez pas d’huile, de beurre, de margarine ou d’autres matières grasses.</li> </ul><h2>Régime à faible teneur en gras</h2><p>Le médecin de votre enfant ou le diététiste vous expliqueront en détail le régime alimentaire que votre enfant devra suivre.
