Effects Of Binge Drinking In Teenager!

Diploma in Diet n Nutrition, BHMS
Homeopath,

Drinking in teenage years linked to memory problems and other health issues in later life.

  • Binge drinking during teenage years could lead to thinning of certain areas of the brain causing problems with memory and other serious health implications later in life suggests a study.
  • As per a recent study conducted by the oregon state university in the us, binge drinking is linked to shrinking of certain areas of the brain that are associated with memory, attention and language in teenagers. This, in turn, could lead to increased risk of developing alcohol use disorder later on in life.
  • The researchers studied six parameters to determine the hazardous impact of heavy drinking on the brain in early years. These include response inhibition, working memory, verbal learning and memory, decision making and reward processing, alcohol cue reactivity, and socio-cognitive/socio-emotional processing,
  • Teenage is a period where the brain is still undergoing biological and psychological behaviour development.
  • Considering the fact that more and more teenagers are involved in binge drinking and heavy drinking, understanding the effects of consuming large quantities of alcohol on neural development and the impact on cognitive skills is very important.
  • Binge or heavy episodic drinking is defined as four or more standard drinks within a two-hour drinking session for females and five or more drinks for males.
  • As per the study, binge drinking among young people is associated with a thinning or reduction of areas of the brain that are known to play a key role in memory, attention, language, awareness and consciousness.
  • This type of brain alteration in young life could lead to increased risk of alcohol use disorder in later years of life.

DO's and DONT's: Encouraging Good Eating Habits In Children!

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai

During the first few years of life, it's vital to meet nutritional needs in order to ensure proper growth and also to establish a lifelong habit of healthy eating.

Eating a meal should be both a healthy and enjoyable occasion- a fact that many parents overlook when planning a meal for their growing children. Instead of a fast meal (especially one short in nutritional value) that family members eat at different hours, mealtimes should promote family togetherness whenever possible. If mealtime is a pleasant event, children may practice healthful eating habits in later life.

  • Do set a good example for your child to copy. Share mealtimes and eat the same healthy food.
  • Do discourage snacking on sweets and fatty food. Keep plenty of healthy foods, such as fruits, raw vegetables, low-fat crackers, and yogurt, around for children to eat between meals.
  • Do allow children to follow their natural appetites when deciding how much to eat.
  • Do encourage children to enjoy fruits and vegetables by giving them a variety from an early age.
  • Don't give slim or 1-percent fat milk to children under the age of 5 unless your doctor prescribes it; at this stage, children need the extra calories in whole milk.
  • Do ask children to help prepare meals. If parents rely mostly on convenience foods, children may not learn to enjoy cooking.
  • Don't add unnecessary sugar to drinks and foods.
  • Don't accustom children to extra salt by adding it to food placing the shaker on table.
  • Doon't give whole nuts to children under the age of 5, who may choke on them. Peanut butter and chopped nuts are fine as long as the child is not allergic to them.
  • Don't force children to eat more than they want.
  • Don't use food as a bribe.
  • Don't make children guilty about eating any type of food.

My wife is having 21*19 mm cyst in left ovary. Would she be able to conceive. What should we do?
Yes. She can conceive. 2 cm cyst is not a big size but we have to do ultrasound to see for the nature and character of cyst, then she will also require some hormonal investigations. After investigations medicine can be given to dissolve the cyst if required. Treatment can be planned after all investigations.

Babies can't digest cow's milk as completely or easily as breast milk or formula. Cow's milk contains high concentrations of protein and minerals, which can tax your baby's immature kidneys. Cow's milk doesn't have the right amounts of iron, vitamin C, and other nutrients for infants.

I understand your anxiety about health of your daughter. She is expected to have a weight of 19-20 kg at this age. You also are disturbed about heavy load of studies. It will be ideal to keep a record of her diet in last 24 hours so that we can calculate her calories &protein intake. This is known as dietary recall. At this age she should take 3 meals with 2 times good quality snacks. Each meal should be 250gm .it should have v ariety of food items so that she gets carbohydrate, protein,fat ,minerals &vitamins in required amounts. Please observe food &hands hygeine & food should be given in a pleasant environment. She also needs medical check up to rule out any illness. The children are not supposed to be overloaded with studies at this tender age. Regards.

Talk more relevant things with her at home. Rehearse the expected question and answer at home, may be she practice it in front of mirror, more practice more confidence, converse with her more and let her speak, more than you. Ask her to tell story, sing a song/ poem or narrate the daily activity or describe the place she visited recently. Do for 15 days and report.

I understand your anxiety about your new born baby. The new born can have normal shivering movements at the chin provided these are momentary. How you have assessed that child is not getting enough milk? 2 reliable signs of enough milk are 1birth wt is regained at 15 days of age. Wt should increase at least 500grams in a month. 2.should pass diluted urine at least 6 times in 24 hours. It is not a symptom of jaundice &u may be reassured. Regards.

By 2.5, child is expected to talk in sentences but some exceptions are possible. You need to get the developmental assessment done in detail if he has issue with concentration OR is he always on the run OR do you feel he doesn't respond to name call OR if he doesn't maintain eye contact while interacting with you all. If you can share a small video of his I might be able to guide.

Hi lybrate-user sleeping pattern of babies changes every 14 days. So please do not try to change the habit. As babies need 18 hours sleep during day n night together. As they grow in sleep. Try to take a nap along with him keeping in mind to feed him every 2 hours.

Hello. I have understood your concern. As per symptom description your baby is having infantile colic. You can give him colicaid drops instead. It is free from any side effect. You can give 0.5 ml every night before his crying episode.
