My great niece was diagnosed with Dandy Walker Variant and has had a shunt put in to drain the extra fluid from the brain. She is 13 months hold and recent blood work shows her to have elevated liver numbers. She is developing normal mental and physically. She was premature and weighed 3.1 lbs. at birth. She now weighs 16 lbs. and is 24 inches tall. The doctor feels she is not gaining weight enough. Any comments on this.
