LONG TERM HEALTH RISKS
Though it can be hard to know if specific health issues later in life can be related to prematurity or ill at birth, being born early or sick can possibly increase the risk of long term health issues for some people, which is why it is important to inform all your doctors that you were born premature or sick. There are specialists for almost all health disorders, but none specifically for adults who were born prematurely. Therefore, it is important to find a suitable specialist for your condition. Your GP can refer you to a suitable health professional.
