If you are having difficulties preparing thickened drinks or are

struggling to drink them due to their palatability, talk to your GP

about the possibility of prescribing some pre-thickened drinks.

Please note that some GP surgeries may not be able/willing to

prescribe these.

please explain the use of present progressive "are having" and also the grammatical form and function of "preparing...".

I'm not sure what is confusing, but in other words you can think of it as, "If you are having (If you have difficulty each day) in creating (preparing thickened) drinks (that have been thickened with a thickening agent), or are..."
