Symptoms of ADHD

If you have noticed your child to be restless and anxious all the time, it might look cute as the child is highly energetic, but it could be a cause for concern at the same time. It is not normal and the child could be having ADHD that is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. As the name suggests, it is a disorder with deficiency of attention and in which the child is always hyperactive.

ADHD is a disorder in which the symptoms usually show up before the age of seven. It is characterized by a group of behavioral symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. The impact of these symptoms is felt extensively where his overall self-esteem is affected, be it at home, preschool or school, academics or extracurricular activities and in interpersonal relationships.

The most common symptoms, which are almost diagnostic of ADHD are:

  1. Inability to hold attention: The child's attention span is very short and it is very difficult to keep them engaged on one particular thing.
  2. Increased restlessness: The child would be extremely restless and gets distracted easily.
  3. Fidgeting: The child would be seen constantly fidgeting with his fingers.

The following are the less common ones:

  1. Learning disability is rare, but can happen. However, the good news is that it does not affect the child's intelligence.
  2. Sleep disorders
  3. Difficulty in following directions
  4. Poor executive functioning skills
  5. Disorganization, which can lead to poor motor coordination and impaired movements
  6. ADHD kids tend to forget things very easily and need help with coordinating movements
  7. The child suffering from ADHD could easily tire and/or feel lethargic with very low energy levels. This can lead to the child procrastinating things and not wanting to do things on priority basis
  8. These children also have difficulties with fine motor and cognitive skills and so there is delay in their overall participation in games.

While these are the pressing symptoms of ADHD, occupational therapy can play a significant role in managing the child in the following ways. As a first step, the caregiver should have a detailed discussion with the school staff and any other people with whom the child interacts significantly.

This will help identify areas that need support from an Occupational Therapy, which are the following:

  1. Support with gross and/or fine motor skills
  2. Support with improving handwriting
  3. Support with engaging in playing sports and games
  4. Support in engaging in social activities
  5. Improving sensory processing difficulties
  6. Improving visual perception
  7. Support in adapting to the environment
  8. Teaching strategies to participate in various social and academic activities

So, while an ADHD child is definitely a cause for concern, proper support from family can help manage the condition.

Hi lybrate-user, babies skin are very sensitive. But no matter how well you are getting time for yourself, you will always put your baby first. Even when you are thinking of ways to get a fairer and glowing skin, you will want to look for ways to get your baby’s skin fairer and softer! Here are a few home remedies for you: 1. Nice & Warm Oil Massage - You must have been told by your mother or grandmother a hundred times that massaging your newborn with a hot oil is good for his bones and muscles to get them stronger. But what they didn’t tell you is that the hot oil massage also improves the complexion of your baby. It adds another protective layer of moisture on their skin and this results in mild pinkish glow and blossom. 2. Using An Optimum Water Temperature For Bathing - As much as it essential for the adults to take care of the water temperature they are bathing with, it is even more important that you keep an optimum water temperature for your baby’s bath. Otherwise, too hot or cold water will dry out your young one’s sensitive skin and make it appear dull and dark. 3. Soft Baby Scrub - Don’t worry, we won’t ask you to use your everyday scrub on your delicate baby. Instead, you can prepare a baby scrub using baby oil, chickpea flour, milk, rose water, and an evenly grounded gram pulse. Gently scrub away the impurities and this will also improve the blood circulation in your baby’s body, that will lead to a fairer complexion ultimately. 4. Mild Baby Friendly Body Pack - Your young one’s body is totally new to the environmental factors, with more sensitive skin than any adult. Fostering the little one’s skin with a mild body pack will nurture their skin and give them an evenly fair skin tone. Mix sandalwood, milk, saffron and turmeric to make a smooth paste and apply it on your baby’s body. Leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. This will not only make him fairer but will also protect him from various skin infections. Do this once in a week. 5. Complete Moisturization - The most important and essential step in the baby skin care routine is the moisturization. You can apply a good and mild baby skin-friendly moisturizer once a day. 6. Give A Regulated Sunbath - We understand that protecting your little one from the harsh rays of the sun is essential, but some natural vitamin D is necessary for the skin to stay bright and healthy as well. Use a pram or shed to protect your baby from the impact of direct sunlight. 7. Fresh Fruit Juices - Fruit juices are a great option for babies above 3 months. Feeding your baby a fresh juice of grapes will help increase the sheen of the epidermis and fruits like oranges & apples will improve your baby’s overall health. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

My 3 week old baby falls asleep during feedings and just won't burp. I hold him upright for up to half an hour while patting her back pretty well. He is drinking both formula and breast milk (both from the bottle). At times he will burp twice and I lay her down, he gets uncomfortable and cries a little, I pick her up and he burps again. I have to do this every 5 to 10 minutes sometimes. Often he will demand more milk when he looks uncomfortable from what seems like gas as he does pass gas after squirming and crying some. Tell me what to do. ?

Small babies should be given only breast milk. They get uncomfortable due to gas, but feel good after burping or passing wind. If your child cries it doesn't mean he is demanding feed. Overfeeding usually causes the problems you are describing. Stop formula, and give only breast milk when the earlier feed you have given is likely to be digested. It usually takes 2 hours for that.

Are You Taking Care of Your Aging Parents Dental Needs?

Blog by Dr. Ratnika agarwal, dental surgeon/owner of smile up dental care implant center, pune

Advancing age puts many seniors at risk for a number of oral health problems, such as:


    Darkened teeth. Caused, to some extent, by changes in dentin -- the bone-like tissue that underlies the tooth enamel -- and by a lifetime of consuming stain-causing foods beverages.
    Dry mouth. It is caused by reduced saliva flow, which can be a result of cancer treatments as well as certain diseases medication side effects. Many medicines can cause dry mouth.
    Diminished sense of taste. While advancing age impairs the sense of taste, diseases, medications,  dentures can also contribute to this sensory loss.
    Root decay. This is caused by exposure of the tooth root to decay-causing acids.
    Gum disease. Caused by plaque made worse by food left in teeth, use of tobacco products, poor-fitting bridges and dentures, poor diets, and certain diseases, such as anemia, cancer, and diabetes, this is often a problem for older adults.
    Tooth loss. Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss.
    Uneven jawbone. This is caused by tooth then not replacing missing teeth. This allows the rest of the teeth to drift and shift into open spaces
    Denture-induced stomatitis. Ill-fitting dentures, poor dental hygiene, or a buildup of the fungus candida cause this condition, which is inflammation of the tissue underlying a denture.
    Thrush. Diseases or drugs that affect the immune system can trigger the overgrowth of the fungus candida in mouth


Age in and of itself is not a dominant or sole factor in determining oral health. However, certain medical conditions, such as arthritis in the hands and fingers, may make brushing or flossing teeth difficult to impossible to perform. Drugs can also affect oral health and may make a change in your dental treatment necessary.

Oral hygiene tips for seniors:

Daily brushing flossing of natural teeth is essential to keeping them in good oral health. Plaque can build up quickly on the teeth of seniors, especially if oral hygiene is neglected, & lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

To maintain good oral health, it's important for all individuals -- regardless of age -- to:


    Brush at least twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste
    Floss at least once a day
    Rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day
