If the baby is breastfed exclusively infective diarrhoea is uncommon. I think baby is having increased frequency of stools especially after feeds due to exaggerated gastrocolic reflex. If the stools are well formed you can ignore.

An 11 month old child needs breastmilk along with complementary foods. If your baby is breastfeeding, you do not need to give him milk from outside sources. Energy supplements like bournvita are okay for kids who consume milk other than mother's milk.

General Physician,
Children tend to vomit if food is forced on them. as part of investigating the cause you need to check his TSH and inform me . 10 Kg is reasonable and make sure he is not anemic

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

The Diabetes-Depression Connection

According to most experts, Depression and Diabetes have been intricately connected in a vicious cycle. While the prolonged and sustaining nature of diabetes directly makes one vulnerable to the bouts of depression, doctors tend to locate traces of depression in the family history of an individual in order to diagnose the roots of diabetes. It won't be too far-fetched to state that both causes as well as affects the other.

If you have diabetes, either type 1 or type 2, you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other.

How Diabetes and Depression Correlated?                    
There are myriad ways in which diabetes affects depression and vice versa.

Firstly, tackling such a long drawn disease and its various pitfalls might cause a lot of anxiety to one and lead to depression. Whereas on the other hand, depression reduces the zeal to live and thus results in poor lifestyle choices which in turn causes weight gain, unhealthy food habits, physical inactivity. As we are well aware, all these have the potential to wreak havoc for any patient of diabetes. 

Similarly, diabetes ushers in various other health complications, adversely impacting one's productivity. This may cause depression in a lot of people. 

On the flipside, depression impedes one's ability and enthusiasm to work or communicate, this in turn intervenes with one's monitoring of diabetes. Since these two extremely malevolent diseases have such close connections, medical science recommends ways to grapple with both. The rigors of managing diabetes can be stressful and lead to symptoms of depression.

Diabetes can cause complications and health problems that may worsen symptoms of depression.

Depression affects your ability to perform tasks, communicate and think clearly. This can interfere with your ability to successfully manage diabetes.

Treatment: Depression is just like any other illness, it can be treated. Treatment can lift the depression and improve diabetes control.

Looking after your diabetes will help decrease the risk of getting depression. If you already have depression, good diabetes management will help lessen the negative impacts it can have. Depression is no different to any of the other complication of diabetes. It is a genuine illness for which you need to seek help and support from health professionals.

The treatment for depression and diabetes involves a coordinated approach that monitors both diabetes control and the symptoms of depression. It is about finding the treatment that works best for each person. For example, people with diabetes and mild depression may find that regular physical activity improves depressed moods and also helps control blood glucose levels.

Helping Yourself.

If you suspect you might have depression, take control of your health by:

  • Going to a doctor or other health professional
  • Getting involved in social activities
  • Engaging in regular moderate physical activity
  • Learning about depression and diabetes
  • Very particular about medicines prescribed for Diabetes
  • Eating healthily and including a wide variety of nutritious foods
  • Achieving and maintaining healthy weight
  • Limiting your alcohol intake
  • Getting help, support and encouragement from family and friends
  • Asking your doctor to check your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi, I gave birth to baby boy in november 2014. Breastfeeding for my baby is very less. Giving external feed. How to increase my breastfeed. Please suggest.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
Most important is being happy, frequent breast feeding, empty the breast every time. If you have to top feed then first breast feed then immidiately top feed,next time repeat it. If you breast feed and next feed is top feed then gradually your breast milk will decrease further. Fenugreek and zeera tab perinorm may help to increase the breast milk.

For constipation give high roughage diet like fruits and vegetables, roti. Give more fluids including water. If he is constipated for along time rectal enema once to evacuate the bowels. Then you can use glycerine suppository perrectal daily for 3 days and then as per need. Give syp lactulose 5ml twice a day for about I month till he starts passing normal stools daily. Important to remember is that high roughage adequate diet is most important.

Head holding is not attained by an infant by three months. You should be careful next time while holding the child as the child has no head control and the head tends to fall backwards. I don't think the present occurrence would lead to any future complications but be careful from next time.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

My baby is two months old girl. She is only fed mother's milk. Now she has not done potty since 3 days. Before this, she was doing normal potty daily. She is taking medicines bisgly-xt drops, rxplus drops, calshine p drops, ostocalcium b12 syrup that are prescribed 1 & 1/2 months ago by paediatrician. Now please advise, what to do for her normal motion.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Relax no need to do anything. If child is taking breast feeds and is active, to pass soft stools once in 5-6 days is normal. If child is passing gas then there is no mechanical obstruction in the gut (serious surgical condition). As regards the tonics iron and vit d drops are okay.

General Physician,

I didn't fully understand your [problem .Ask me privately for personalised advice, If it is this as below, Rheum also known as Ground is thin mucus naturally discharged as a watery substance from the eyes, nose or mouth during sleep (cf. mucopurulent discharge). Rheum dries and gathers as a crust in the corners of the eyes or mouth, on the eyelids, or under the nose.It is formed by a combination of mucus (in the case of the eyes, consisting of mucin discharged from the cornea or conjunctiva), nasal mucus, blood cells, skin cells, or dust. Rheum from the eyes is particularly common. Dried rheum is in common usage called sleep .e.g., to have sleep in one's eyes. When the individual is awake, blinking of the eyelid causes rheum to be washed away with tears via the nasolacrimal duct. The absence of this action during sleep, however, results in a small amount of dry rheum accumulating in corners of the eye, most notably in children.Ask me privately for personalised advice. A number of conditions can cause an increase in the production of rheum in the eye. In the case of allergic conjunctivitis, the buildup of rheum can be considerable, many times preventing the sufferer opening the eye upon waking without prior cleansing of the eye area. The presence of pus in an instance of heavy rheum buildup can indicate dry eye or conjunctivitis, among other infections. Occasionally in infants, the tear ducts (that drain the tears) fail to open, resulting in the overflow of tears onto the cheeks (epiphora) and rheum deposition on the surrounding skin. YOu need to give NLD massage for a 7 week old . You can ask privately for personalised reply. Regards
