I have again done the stool test of my child. My child is 1 month 22 days old. The stool test report is as under: Colour- Yellow with Reddish streak. Consistency: Semisolid, Odour: Offensive, Mucus (), Reaction: Ph 6.0, Occult Blood: Positive (ve), RBC: 6-8/Hpf, Pus Cells: 2-3/ Hpf, Bacteria flora: Normal, Veg Cells, Starch, Fat globules are Nil. We see some little drops of blood in his stool when he passes stool most of time. Dr. (Pediatrician) advised us to go surgeon for checking the cause of stool. What can we do now? Why there is blood in his stool and what is his problem. My child is normal habitual and his body temperature is also normal. He is only breastfed.

Common causes: is an infection or ,Cow's milk protein allergy. Infection can be because of bottle feeds due to inadequate sterilization. Also putting hands or cloth in the mouth may cause it. Hence get a stool culture test. Also give only breast feeds for 6 months. CMPA can be because of giving top feeds, even formula. It can also happen due to milk products consumption by mother who is breast feeding. Stopping cows milk in mother and child is the answer. Soya formulas may be used.

At 4 years of age a child weight should be around 16 kg & height around 101 cm. It is obvious that your child is grossely undernourished & needs urgent attention to correct dietary habits,quantity& frequency.Recurrent loose motion has added to dietary defieciency, Unhygenic feeding habits is commenest cause of frequent loose stools. The child requres councelling by a dietition to overcome possible growth stunt.

Hi it's about my 15 months daughter. Two months before doctor recommended lactose free milk because of lactose intolerance. During this period whenever I tried her it's regular formula milk she got loose stools again. She is completely on formula milk with less amount of solid food (6 times milk 150 ml around per day) Should I continue with lactose free milk for more couple of months.

Most of the lactose free formula are derived from soya (most of which is genetically modified ).So though short term use of soya milk is OK but prolonged use is strictly prohibited. There are other casein based formula in the market. You should try those. And try to decrease the amount of milk consumption by that time.

I want to know about krill oil. Can I give my daughter krill oil as she is adhd and how can it help.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Krill oil is oil from a tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks eat primarily krill. In norwegian, the word" krill" means" whale food" people extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine. Some brand name krill oil products indicate that they use antarctic krill. This usually refers to the species of krill called euphausia superba. Krill oil is used for heart disease, high levels of certain blood fats (triglycerides), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression, premenstrual syndrome (pms), and painful menstrual periods. How does it work? krill oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood platelets are less sticky they are less likely to form clots. High cholesterol. Developing research shows that taking 1-1. 5 grams of a specific krill oil product (neptune krill oil, neptune technologies & bioresources, inc) daily reduces total cholesterol and? bad? low-density lipoprotein (ldl) cholesterol, and increases? good? high-density lipoprotein (hdl) cholesterol in patients with high cholesterol. Higher doses of 2-3 grams daily also appear to significantly reduce levels of triglyceride, another type of blood fat. Osteoarthritis. Early research shows that taking 300 mg of a specific krill oil product daily reduces pain and stiffness in people with osteoarthritis. Premenstrual syndrome (pms). Early research shows that taking a specific krill oil product might reduce pms symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis. Early research shows that taking 300 mg of a specific krill oil product daily reduces pain and stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis. High blood pressure. Stroke. Cancer. Depression. Other conditions. More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of krill oil for these uses. Krill oil is possibly safe for most adults when used appropriately for a short amount of time (up to three months). Research on krill oil has not adequately evaluated its safety or possible side effects. However, it is likely that krill oil can cause some side effects similar to fish oil such as bad breath, heartburn, fishy taste, upset stomach, nausea, and loose stools. Special precautions & warnings: pregnancy and breast-feeding: not enough is known about the use of krill oil during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use. Seafood allergy: some people who are allergic to seafood might also be allergic to krill oil supplements. There is no reliable information showing how likely people with seafood allergy are to have an allergic reaction to krill oil; however, until more is known, avoid using krill oil or use it cautiously if you have a seafood allergy. Surgery: because krill oil can slow blood clotting, there is concern that it might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using krill oil at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery. The specific utility in adhd is not certain. Ask privately www.lybrate.com/drsajeev

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly.

Hi Loose motions are not uncommon during teething. So you might not need to give medicine just yet. Keep your baby well hydrated, and keep observing the number of loose motions. I hope you are breastfeeding your baby.

My daughter is 2yrs 3mths old. How to stop her breastfeeding.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician,
Hi welcome to lybrate stopping breastfeeding will be a tough especially at 2 yrs n more. First start with day. Give her something to eat when she wants to breastfeed. Distract her when she demands breastfeed you may have to bear with her tantrums when you refuse breastfeeding her. Have patience and it will take few weeks to completely stop breastfeeding.
