A 5-year-old girl in Britain has been forbidden from eating chocolate, over fears that it could kill her
Lola Raine suffers from a rare liver and kidney condition, which means that even just a small chunk of the treat, could cause a fatal rise in her potassium levels.
Her 10-year-old sister Nicole, also had Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease, but can now eat what she likes after a double organ transplant.
“Lola does ask for chocolate but cries as she can’t have it. She’s on the waiting list for a transplant but she’s had two cancelled already,” the Sun quoted her mother Natalie, as saying.
“She’s on a diet of sausages, toast and pasta until her transplant,” the mum of five said.
“Her sister is now doing really well and that’s our hope for Lola,” she added.
