Deficiency of Iron in Children

PALS, MD, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Deficiency of Iron in Children

For the growth and development of children, they need an essential nutrient Iron. It helps in the transfer of oxygen from lungs to the body's tissues. Red blood cells contain iron in the hemoglobin. The hemoglobin carries oxygen in the blood to the different parts of the body. Iron has an important role to play in the development of brain and generating energy in a child's body. The lack of sufficient iron in the child's body can lead to anemia, which is a nutritional deficient illness and will require medical attention. When a child suffers from anemia, the lack of oxygen makes a child weak and sick.

There are certain symptoms of Iron deficiency in a child's body. These are:

  1. Infections and weak immune system can make a child suffer from frequent infections.
  2. Lethargy and fatigue is another common symptom of an iron deficient body. Due to deficiency of Iron it is difficult for the body to transport oxygen to cells in the body and hence it unable to generate enough energy levels.
  3. Breathlessness and increased sweating can be a sign that your child may be suffering from iron deficiency.
  4. Pica Children suffering from iron deficiency may find a special taste for non-food substances like chalk, dirt and clay.
  5. Lack of iron in the body hampers the physical growth of a child.

The deficiency of iron in children can be diagnosed through blood tests. Your doctor may recommend supplementing iron content orally or through multivitamin medicines. But the deficiency of Iron in a child's body should be taken care of with absolute urgency.

Proper steps should be taken to prevent the deficiency of Iron in children. Those notable precautions are mentioned below:

  1. Balanced diet: A well balanced diet is always recommended. For older children (within 9-12 years of age), red meat, chicken and fish would suffice as good sources of iron.
  2. Oral iron supplements: Oral iron supplements would be required for children with low weight at birth and who have a deficiency of iron in their daily diet.
  3. Vitamin C: Foods such as strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes help in providing the sufficient iron content when included in daily diets, thus reducing the chances of anemia.

Hello doctor, am a 24 years old breast feeding mother. My daughter is 6months old. I find my breastmilk has reduced from comparing to earlier. Is there any food that increase breast milk?

Ayurveda, Delhi
The key to more milk is more suckling. Try putting your baby to breast more frequently. You may also use a breastpump after every feed to provide continuous stimulation to breasts.

Preparation for Cesarean Delivery The gynecologist will first explain the need for a C-section, and the mother has to sign a consent form A midwife or an obstetrician will be assigned to the mother before delivery An epidural may be given to the mother to numb any pain. In rare cases, a general anesthetic is given. Procedure of Cesarean Delivery A catheter is then inserted into the mother’s urethra to drain urine during the surgery, and an IV is introduced (for fluids and medications) Antibiotics may be given through the IV to prevent any infection post birth The surgeon will then make a small horizontal incision above the pubic bone, and work through the tissue underneath till the uterus is reached. At this point, the doctor will most likely perform a horizontal incision in the lower section of the uterus The baby is then pulled out and the cord is cut The baby is handed over to either parent while the incision is stitched up Post Procedure The mother will be taken to the recovery room, where she will be closely monitored for a few hours The baby will be handed over to the mother for breastfeeding.

If both of you do not have any medical problem like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease presently you plan to conceive and once you miss your periods now is the time Gynaecologist will ask for tests.

Hi lybrate user, please get pelvic ultrasound done to check what is reason for it. Consult gynaecologist to rule out any birth defects. Sometimes due to hormonal variations their could be delayed periods. It can be as late as 16 yrs.

Dear Lybrate user, Though getting abortion done usually doesn't cause any problem, sometimes it can. However, if you want to have another child it is better to continue pregnancy.

Definitely but not for infertility but for guidance in sexuality and childbirth from sexologist. All men/women are different in their sexuality and health. You need to go for check up with sexologist physically to know the cause and get guidance/treatment for improvement. If you value your sexual health and want to enjoy quality sex in marriage then understanding and learning about sexuality is needed. As we all believe that what we know by hearsay or porn watching is great but in fact what we all know and understand is only penetration and that's not quality sex.

Hello, What's her age? Since how long she has been suffering? Does she has any underlying medical problem? What about her Hb% and rest of the blood reports? Menopause or any nutritional deficiency can lead to Menstrual problem/ irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter revert me back..take care.

How much time does unwanted 72 takes to start the periods. Please suggest me the time.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
How much time does unwanted 72 takes to start the periods. Please suggest me the time.
Taking an unwanted 72 will not cause periods. The periods will come at its own time, maybe slightly late too. Delay in periods after contraceptive pills is a common and expected side effect. Secondly, I would suggest you not to take more than one pill a month as it can cause hormonal issues. Also, it is advised to take it in emergency only, Casual and frequent use can cause long-term problems. Its better to use barrier contraceptives.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should be healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Semen do not pass through clothes to make pregnancy. Sex during periods does not cause pregnancy. Usually precum do not contain any sperm cells. Period means disintegration of the uterus membrane which is meant to be for the child. Swallowing male sperm cannot cause pregnancy. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.

Health Benefits of Broccoli

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad
  • When it comes to great-tasting nutrition, broccoli is an all-star food with many health benefits. While low in calories, broccoli is rich in essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to fiber.
  • Broccoli belongs to a family of vegetables called cruciferous vegetables and its close relatives include brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage. Broccoli contains sulforophane, a sulfur-containing compound present in cruciferous vegetables. Researchers are studying the anti-cancer properties of sulforophane and have come to some interesting conclusions, although more research is needed. 
  • As if that's not enough, a cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin C as an orange, and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains  vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too. It also provides fiber and is low in calories.
