Dear user. This method is called withdrawal method. Withdrawal method could be useful to avoid pregnancy but its success could be troublesome. But this will not help you in the matter of HIV. Please wear condom. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user! We do not get people come to our home to dress us, brush our teeth and for other day to day activities. Hence insulin injection should always be self administered or at most by a family member. An outside person will never do it with heart, plus one will then totally become dependent on an external person, lose all freedom. Trust me it is not a pleasant experience. Your painful experience with injection suggests you have not been trained properly to inject insulin. Please meet an endocrinologist. He/She will be happy to teach you and your mom the correct insulin injection technique. Proper injection is always painless. Apologies for this strong worded response but that is the reality. If you were in Delhi, I would have been more than happy to help.

Iron Deficiency In Children

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Varanasi
Iron Deficiency In Children

Iron is an essential nutrient and mineral that is required by adults and children alike. Iron helps move oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body and helps muscles store and use oxygen. It is especially important for children because it aids development and prevents anaemia. Untreated iron deficiency in children can cause physical and mental delays. It can lead to less healthy red blood cells in the child's blood stream which will cause a delay in the growth of physical and mental faculties.

Risk factors for iron deficiency in children

Infants and children at highest risk of iron deficiency include:

  1. Babies who are born prematurely or have a low birth weight
  2. Babies who drink cow's milk before age 1
  3. Breast-fed babies who aren't given complementary foods containing iron after age 6 months
  4. Babies who drink formula that isn't fortified with iron
  5. Children ages 1 to 5 who drink more than 24 ounces (710 milliliters) of cow's milk, goat's milk or soy milk a day
  6. Children who have certain health conditions, such as chronic infections or restricted diets
  7. Children ages 1 to 5 who have been exposed to lead
  8. Adolescent girls also are at higher risk of iron deficiency because their bodies lose iron during menstruation.

Symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia

The signs and symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia in children may include:

  1. Pale skin
  2. Fatigue or weakness
  3. Slow cognitive and social development
  4. Inflammation of the tongue
  5. Difficulty maintaining body temperature
  6. Increased likelihood of infections
  7. Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or pure starch

Prevent iron deficiency in children

Take steps to prevent iron deficiency in your child by paying attention to his or her diet. For example:

  1. Breast-feed or use iron-fortified formula. Breast-feeding until your child is age 1 is recommended. If you don't breast-feed, use iron-fortified infant formula.
  2. Encourage a balanced diet. When you begin serving your baby solids, typically between ages 4 months and 6 months, feed him or her foods with added iron, such as iron-fortified baby cereal. For older children, good sources of iron include red meat, chicken, fish, beans and dark green leafy vegetables. Between ages 1 and 5, don't allow your child to drink more than 24 ounces (710 milliliters) of milk a day.
  3. Enhance absorption. Vitamin C helps promote the absorption of dietary iron. You can help your child absorb iron by offering foods rich in vitamin C, such as melon, strawberries, kiwi, broccoli, tomatoes and potatoes.
  4. Consider iron supplements. If your baby was born prematurely or with a low birth weight or you're breast-feeding a baby older than 4 months and he or she isn't eating two or more servings a day of iron-rich foods, talk to a child's doctor about oral iron supplements.

Make sure that you watch out for the tell tale signs of iron deficiency and take the necessary precautions to avoid the same. If you wish to discuss about any specific child related problem, you can consult a specilized pediatrician and ask a free question.

Hello- You are suffering from genital exhaustion, this is why you are not able to ejaculate inside during sex. Sperm administration through any other method will not be beneficial as sperm will die as soon as it comes in contact with any other medium other thn vagina. You will not attain pregnancy by this method. However if you start treating your sexual weakness, you will not only become able to ejaculate inside but also your sperm count and motility will boost above normal, increasing the chances of pregnancy.

In my opinion such attraction could very very short lived. Some times in this age meaning at very young age attracted towards sex and see every body around in sexual point of view in such a quagmire you might think that you are attracting towards boys but it could be gender identity disorder. So first assess your self it s what kind of attraction though there is no future or social acceptance to his infection you might catch that's additional. Wish you good health.
