SPOILERS: Teen Mom OG Newbie Cheyenne Reveals Details On Her Daughter's Rare Disease
Cory and Cheyenne’s co-parenting relationship is going well on Teen Mom OG, but that doesn’t mean parenting itself is always easy. On this Sunday's episode, Cheyenne gets candid about their daughter Ryder’s “rare genetic disease” and how she and Cory have been dealing with it together.
In the sneak peek below, Chey explains that Ryder was diagnosed as a newborn with VLCAD, which makes her body unable to process fatty foods.
“When she was first born, she had to eat every two hours,” Cheyenne explained to her cousin. “She has to take medicine and, since its genetic, it’s something that she’ll always have. It’s scary to hear that she can go into shock, go into a coma.”
In the upcoming episode, Cheyenne and Cory meet for one of Ryder’s doctor’s appointments and are terrified they’ll get bad news and learn that their little one would have to continue taking medicine twice daily for the foreseeable future.
