Calcium Supplements like Shelcal ( for elderly) and Calci max suspension(for children) contain Calcium carbonate as one of the main components.People say that one should avoid these supplements as the Calcium carbonate present in these can cause stones after a period of time. If this is true, kindly advise alternate calcium supplements for elderly as well as children which are totally safe.

These supplements are safe as long as they are given in prescribed doses for a specific duration for a specific deficiency. If there is a diagnosed deficiency of any nutrient, it has to be evaluated and then correction given. These are drugs and no one should use any drug for prolonged durations in unspecified doses.

Whats the maximum amount of or valporate sodium that can be given to 2 year old baby of 15 kg weight for controlling spasms / fits? Doctor is currently giving 5 ml twice a day. I am concerned whether that is less as it was same amount when baby was 10 kg. I thought amount should increase with weight.

If fits are controlled, no reason to worry.It's doctors job and he will do it sincerely, doctors are trained to deal with illness in appropriate way . If you take up on yourself to monitor drug doses and his medical condition, it will be very difficult to bear tension for you. You must have faith in your doc, if you worry something,please talk to him first.

Hi, exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for 6 months, it increases immunity of child and provides all nutrients. If not able to give breastfeed then formula ffed like nan 1, lactogen 1 can be given. But you should try to feed child as much as possible because this will increase your milk production. Wishing your baby a good health.

Teaching your child proper oral care at a young age is an investment in his or her health that will pay lifelong dividends. You can start by setting an example; taking good care of your own teeth sends a message that oral health is something to be valued. And anything that makes taking care of teeth fun, like brushing along with your child or letting them choose their own toothbrush, encourages proper oral care.

To help your children protect their teeth and gums and greatly reduce their risk of getting cavities, teach them to follow these simple steps:

1. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque-the sticky film on teeth that's the main cause of tooth decay.

2. Floss daily to remove plaque from between your teeth and under the gumline, before it can harden into tartar. Once tartar has formed, it can only be removed by a professional cleaning.

3. Eat a well-balanced diet that limits starchy or sugary foods, which produce plaque acids that cause tooth decay. When you do eat these foods, try to eat them with your meal instead of as a snack-the extra saliva produced during a meal helps rinse food from the mouth.

4. Use dental products that contain fluoride, including toothpaste. Make sure that your children's drinking water is fluoridated. If your water supply; municipal, well or bottled does not contain fluoride, your dentist or pediatrician may prescribe daily fluoride supplements. Take your child to the dentist for regular checkups.

My daughter is about two years old. Her grand parents are worried about her weight & giving junk food & soft drinks inorder to increase her weight. She weighs 9.5kg. Is it too low.

Junk food and soft drinks will increase body fat, and lead to unhealthy weight gain will be detrimental to her in long run. Give her home diet inspire her to play lot. Her weight is not too low and is on lower side of range. Weight depends on genetic constitution too. Children are like their parents.

You should always mention the weight of the baby when you discuss hie health concerns. Poor food intake can be due to hypothyroidism and check up TSH and inform me .ALso do CBC to know if he is anemic. Next, not important if he is feeding in bottle you must stop bottle and feed from a cup or sipper.

Hypothyroidism can cause delayed development. But your question is not clear as to whether your child is under treatment.

Hello lybrate-user, its a good weight. Don; t worry about the weight, this time, kids will become thin, but after 12 month, they will have gain weight. Just make sure, food intake has a good nutrition values. Like more protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. All should be in a balanced way.

I have a baby son with 1 year 4 month of age. Now i am 4 month pregnant. Is there any problem to breast feeding to my son.

Stop immediately breast feeding your elder. At this age no nutritional value in your milk rather he will not take proper solid foods which are necessary in growing children and it will also effect yr foetus growth.
