lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. For congenital hypothyroidism only treatment is to supplement Levothyroxine in adequate dosage. EVen though it is a synthetic hormone, it hardly causes any side effects or any problems for the person who takes it. Once the treatment is commenced, T4 and TSH should be checked at every 4 to 6 weeks interval. Plus childs growth and should also be monitored. Once the child is stabilsed then TSH should be checked once 3 months or do. If y 3 years child does not show any thyroxine secretion (can be tested by stopping the dose for a few weeks) then Levothyroxine needs to be given for lifetime. If you have any doubts please do come back. Thanks.

Obesity In Children - Ways To Prevent It!

Obesity In Children - Ways To Prevent It!

Research shows that overweight children have a higher chances of developing chronic health problems such as hypertension, asthma, high cholesterol, and even cancer as they grow up. Apart from these health conditions, being obese can cause severe self-esteem problems as well. In short, obesity in children, more specifically childhood obesity, can affect the overall physical, mental and emotional health of your child.

Here are 5 easy ways to prevent your child from falling into the perils of obesity.

1. Develop healthy eating habits in your child
Encouraging your little ones to develop healthy eating habits is vital for maintaining optimum body weight. Instead of high sugar and high fat foods, a child’s diet should consist of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods (such as oats, quinoa and wheat). Proteins such as lean meats, lentils, beans and fish should be included in his/her eating plan as well. Most importantly, serving food in the right portion sizes will ensure your child is getting the right amount of nutrients, while preventing him/her from consuming empty calories. Inculcate these eating habits in them right from the time they are toddlers so that it stays with them as they get older.

2. Make your child avoid calorie-rich foods
Getting your child to avoid fatty, sugary and salty foods can also prevent him from tipping over the weighing scale. Present before your child low sugar and low fat alternatives that he/she would enjoy eating such as apples, bananas, carrots, etc.


3. Encourage your child to pursue physical activity
Try to encourage your child to engage in some form of physical activity for about 60 minutes every day. From brisk walking, swimming, dancing to skipping - your child could opt for any of these physical activities. Having your child lead an active life can see him/her enjoying a number of health benefits like respite from stress, strengthening of his/her bones and muscles and decrease in blood pressure, to name a few.

4. Put a limit on your child’s TV time
When it comes to the time that your child may spend before the TV, computer or other gizmos, it should be not more than half-an-hour per day. Instead, devise fun activities wherein your child as well other members of the family can take part in or ones in which your child does not need a company.

5. Ensure your child gets enough sleep
Lastly, a good night’s rest that lasts about 9-12 hours is vital for optimal weight maintenance. Studies reveal that children who slept for less than the required number of hours were more at risk of being obese. This is because less sleep causes fatigue, leading to a decrease in physical activity and therefore, use of energy. Hence, young kids need up to 8 to 10 hrs sleep but older kids need 6 to 8 hours sleep.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Rise in CRP alone can not diagnose a patient having sepsis. CRP can be rised in simple cold with high grade fever also and once the fever resolved and decreases CRP came down as you have mentioned. LRTI can be diagnosed by examining patients chest. It can be viral or bacterial and CRP can be rised in any of them. This much antibiotics or medication is not required in LRTI and none in viral. Sepsis is related to complications if it is in real present. Blood culture and patients symptoms both if looked in a 2 year child can confirm sepsis. Chest X-ray with examination of patient will confirm LRTI. In any case though if such big injections are started they have to be given for atleast 5 days if really needed. But problem what happened here is that antibiotics has been already started so blood culture if done at this stage may grow no organism. In this case patient can be looked symptomatically and has to be examined, get a blood culture if not done, Chest x ray is a must if some one said LRTI. All things need to be evaluated.

there r usually 2 reason at this age. 1- hunger and 2- discomfort which may be either due to wet, rolling of sheet under body and over or under clothing in this weather. Pls look for these. If you have any further query, contact me privately through lybraate.

Hi, My 10 year old daughter had one strand of grey hair since two years and is now rapidly developing more over the past few months. All blood tests like b12, iron, calcium, Ferratinin, thyroid show no deficiency. She recovered recently from chikungunya. The blood tests show some inflammation due to the recent viral attack. Please suggest remedy to stop grey hair increasing.

Greying of hair when treated with homeopathy shows very good results in children. I suggest you start it at the earliest as it will help build her immunity and control the greying also. Please consult privately for treatment if you wish to start treatment online, or visit a local homoepath, but please START AT THE EARLIEST.
