My daughter is 8 years old and weighs only 20 kgs. She is never interested in eating, be it anything. Capacity of food intake is very low and so she is not that much energetic & active as she should be in this age. Kindly suggest what to do in this as supplements and tonics will do the needful or any other way so that can eat properly own her own and deficiencies can be done away with.

Dear lybrate-user Your daughter is underweight for her age. Be innovative in her foods. Include vegetables in her paranthas, idlis, sandwiches and cutlets. U can include more proteins in her diet like milk, paneer, soya, egg. Fresh fruits should be given. Make sure she is not eating junk food because it effects the appetite and hinders absorption of vitamins in the body.

Loss of appetite at this age can be due to various reasons like anaemia, depression, stress etc. Consult a doctor to check his iron levels. Talk to him if he is going through any stress. Encourage him to eat little at small intervals. Prepare food of his choice and keep a happy environment.

Know About Delayed Puberty

Know About Delayed Puberty

Puberty results from activation of gonads (testes in boys/ ovaries in girls) by pituitary hormones LH and FSH. Activated gonads produce sexual hormones (testosterone in boys and estrogen in girls ) which are responsible for gender specific physical changes at puberty along with behaviour changes. Testosterone in boys is responsible for hair growth over pubic area and face with maturation of genital organs, breaking of voice, development of muscular and skeletal system. Similarly, estrogen in girls is responsible for breast development, maturation of genital organs with feminisation of body. Bone maturation with rapid height gain is seen at puberty both in boys and girls. Various systemic and hormonal disorders can result in either late or early puberty. 

LATE PUBERTY - 

Most of the boys show signs of puberty latest by age of 14 years and most girls start showing signs of puberty latest by age of 13 years. The earliest sign of puberty in boys is enlargement of testes and in girls is height spurt/breast development. When boys older than 14 years and girls older than 13 years don't have any signs of puberty it is called delayed puberty. 

CAUSES OF DELAYED PUBERTY - 

  1. Constitutional delay is most common cause of delayed puberty. The constitutional delay means child is not having any illness and he is going to develop puberty spontaneously at later age. But diagnosis of this condition can be made only after physical examination and investigations so that other causes of delayed puberty are ruled out. 
  2. Functional hypogonadotropic Hypopogonadism - Delayed but spontaneous puberty develops. This condition can be seen in systemic illnesses like chronic infections, poor nutritional status etc. 
  3. Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism - Disorders of pituitary gland result in low LH and FSH so that testes/ovaries are not stimulated and sex hormone is not produced. This can be caused by various genetic disorders, brain tumours, head injury, brain radiation etc. 
  4. Hypergonadotropic Hypogonadism - In this scenario, LH and FSH levels are normal but gonadal are not able to produce sex hormones resulting in delayed puberty. 

CONSEQUENCES OF DELAYED PUBERTY - 
The absence of age specific pubertal changes cause anxiety and distress in children and their parents. These children may develop low self-esteem and are teased by their peers. Along with the poor development of physical signs of puberty, fertility is also affected in hypogonadism. And most importantly, delayed puberty can be the symptom of serious underlying illness like intracranial tumours etc. These children deserve medical attention to get best results. 

INVESTIGATIONS - 
Serum testosterone/estradiol with LH and FSH is done to find out where is defect i.e. whether at the level of pituitary gland or at the level of testes/ovaries. Further investigations depend on levels LH, FSH, estradiol/testosterone. Other useful investigations include prolactin, T4, TSH, ray hand for bone age, ultrasound pelvis, MRI pituitary gland etc. 

TREATMENT - 
After diagnosis is established, Testosterone/estrogen replacement should be started to boys older than 14 year and girls older than 13 years respectively. Hormone replacement is very effective and usually safe. In adulthood those with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism can be treated with LH and FSH to produce sperms/ eggs so that they can achieve fertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

As evident by data given above,child seems to be severly malnourished,The child who is not eating sufficient food is likely to be constipated.Start giving semisolid diet at frequent intervals & gradually shifting to solid diet rich in proteins & fats.Expect good results in 3 months.As weight starts picking up all symptoms will fade up.

I have a boy aged 14 months and some days. He tries taking baby steps through support, but can not continue for more than 4-5 steps. Can not see any physical deformity as well. Should I really be concerned as to when he could walk without support (at least take some steps)?

Hi my son is almost 6 yrs old and has been suffering from fever on and off for the last 2 and half months. We took all tests including urine test, blood test, chest x ray, ultrasound on the abdomen. All tests were normal but the blood test alone showed that crp count was raising every time the test was taken. He has been on antibiotics (amoxicillin, pencilin, augmentin, pencilin iv) for the last 2 months and still falling sick almost every alternate week. While the doctors say there is some infection that is causing the crp count to increase they are not able to say what is causing it. Should I be worried? should I take him for a full medical checkup for thorough examination? please note that for the last 2 months they were diagnosing as tonsillitis, viral infection, bladder infection, possible pneumonia but nothing came out positive in the tests. He does complain of eye irritation and pain in testicles sometimes. Please provide your insights.

Fever on and off since 2 months. Means for how many days each episode lasts? your history suggests it is not infectious cause. Measure the temp. With thermometer and record it. Fever charting is very imp. For diagnosis what is crp value any time esr has been done? what are the tests has been done till now? need to see in details. Child is not hospitalised that means in between fever he is fine. Any joint pain, joint swelling? history of tb in family or close contact? what has happened to weight in last 2 months. Most probably fever is due to inflammatory condition. Need to be worked up.
