You can apply pressure on his sole and see if gets corrected by the age of 1 year. Or else he needs a surgery. Plastering is also tried but results are not consistent.

All About Growth Hormone Deficiency

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
All About Growth Hormone Deficiency

Growth hormone or somatropin is responsible for cell growth as well as reproduction. But insufficient somatropin production by the pituitary gland may result in lack in height. It is mostly caused by a serious brain injury, any prevalent medical condition or might occur as a birth defect.

Types:

  1. Congenital GHD - This form of GHD appears from at the time of birth itself.
  2. Acquired GHD- GHD can be acquired during later life as a result of trauma, infection, tumor growth within the brain or radiation therapy.
  3. Idiopathic GHD- Idiopathic GHD is the third, and comparatively worst kind of GHD since it has no treatment.

GHD is mostly permanent, but can also be transient. Read on to know how to detect whether you or your child is suffering from growth hormone deficiency (GHD).

Symptoms:
Childhood onset

  1. Restricted height- Compared to other children of your child's age, he/she may be of shorter height, which is a rather conclusive sign to detect somatropin deficiency.
  2. Chubby and comparatively younger appearance- Your child may have a proportionate body, but if he/she is unnaturally chubby and has a baby-face compared to other children, he/she may be suffering from GHD.
  3. Late puberty- Your child's puberty maybe later than usual or even not appear at all, depending upon the gravity of the GHD.
  4. Hypoglycemia and exaggerated jaundice- Low blood sugar is amongst the most primary manifestations of GHD, along with extended duration of jaundice.
  5. Micro-penis- Micro penis condition is one of the incident signs of GHD, which later escalates to growth deficit as the infant gets older.

Adult onset:

  1. Fatigue- Adults with GHD may experience extreme tiredness throughout the day, with reduced muscle strength.
  2. Osteoporosis- Osteoporosis, along with bodily deformities, is a common sign in adults with GHD.
  3. Lipid abnormalities- A test of your lipid profile may reveal abnormalities in LDL cholesterol, insulin resistance, and impaired cardiac functions.

Tests to determine GHD:

  1. Physical test- A chart is drawn to determine the proportion of height and weight with respect to your age to detect anomalies.
  2. Hand X-ray- A hand X-ray can determine whether the age of bones are at par with your age.
  3. MRI-MRI scan can determine the health of your brain and pituitary gland.
  4. Test for other hormones- Growth Hormone may not be solely responsible for your health condition, so it is important to determine if other hormone levels are all normal.

Treatment:

  1. Hormone supplements- Hormone supplements like corticosteroids (hydrocortisone or prednisone), Levothyroxine (levoxyl, synthroid, etc), and others work to replenish the deficiency of pituitary hormones.
  2. Growth hormone injection- GH is injected beneath your skin, to cure GDH. This is a long-term treatment and requires constant monitoring.

I have given painless pentaxim vaccine once to my 2 month baby boy after that I have given him painful pentavac vaccine. Will there be any reaction by changing the vaccines? Is it safe?

Currently Pentaxim vaccine is not recommended by INDIAN ACADEMICS OF PEDIATRICS below 1 year or in primary series of 6 10 and 14 week schedule. As it contains acellular pertusis as one of the components its painless and feverless but its not as effective as pentavac because it conta wholecell pertusis which is efficacious in long term. If your child have any reaction from Pentavac then only it wise to shift from Pentavac to Pentaxim. Try to take all pentavac if possible.

My baby is 2.5 months old. She is 70% on lactogen from past 1 month & 30% on mother milk. From past 1 month she has severe colic problem. Also she passes the stool after 3 days by use of suppository capsule. Does the lactogen difficult to digest? Can we give Nan pro? It is easy to digest than lactogen? Or Cows milk will be a good option? We have tried colimex & colicaid but no effect on colic problem.

Is My Child Hyperactive?

MA (CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY), B.Ed.
Psychologist, Pune

Is my child hyperactive?

Now a days we hear very often from parents, teachers, grandparents, neighbors that “this child is very hyperactive”.

Many parents make the child sit for studies for hours which is beyond their capacity and then complain, call them hyperactive, can’t sit for studies, keeps talking, leaves the place often, etc. But hyperactivity involves many other characteristics to be identified before we label any child as hyperactive.

The technical term is attention deficit hyperactive disorder (adhd). Which involves inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive.

If five out of nine hyperactive behaviors (given below) are present in the child then only we can say that the child is hyperactive.

1. Often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat.

2. Often leaves seat in classroom or in other situations in which remaining seated is expected.

3. Often runs about or climbs excessively in situations in which it is inappropriate.

4. Often has difficulty playing or leisure activities quietly.

5. Is often on the go or often acts as if driven by a motor.

6. Often talks excessively.

7. Often blurts out answers before questions have been completed.

8. Often has difficulty awaiting turns.

9. Often interrupts or intrudes on others.

Let us all decide not to label any child as hyperactive before we find at least 5 out of the above mentioned characteristics in the child.

If you find that your child has hyperactivity then you must take some steps to manage the hyperactivity.

We all have heard michale phelps name. Who has won more than 10 gold medals in olympics. He was diagnosed with ADHD.

Following tips can help you to manage your child’s behavior:

Acceptance: first parents must take it positively that your child is hyperactive which means his energy level is more than his peers. If this energy is utilized, your child can do wonders.

Physical activity: parents should send their child for some physical activity as per the availability and liking of the child. For example: swimming, karate, basketball, skating, etc.

Managing behavior: behavior modification techniques are a great tool available with parents to improve the child’s behavior and increase his understanding about his own behavior.

Patience: parents patience level needs to be very high with these kids. If parents give up on them, scold them every now and then, point out their mistakes in front of others, talk to the sarcastically, hurt their ego unknowingly, these type of parent’s behavior lowers their self esteem, lowers self confidence.

Diet: balanced diet is very important for these kids as their activity level is high they can suffer with some deficiencies. Its been suggested by some researchers that sweet consumption should be lower for hyperactive kids. Read child's nutrition requirements.

Quality time: if parents spend quality time with kids they tend to listen to that parent more. Kids co-operate and respect the parent who spends more quality time instead of telling them all the time does and dont's. Quality time is that time when the parent and the child both enjoy each other’s company, engage in some activity which they both like.

For example: cooking a special dish, outdoor game, indoor game, oiling each other’s hair, planning an event, trekking, planning a shopping list, cleaning house, watering plants, watching a movie together, etc.

School parent coordination: its very important to inform the school about the child’s problem so that the school staff also help in managing the child’s behavior.

If the hyperactive kids are engaged properly and parents nurture their self-esteem, these kids can do wonders. They can be very productive, happy and responsible citizens.

Lets give them a good environment to develop their potential and a great future.
