Congenital Heart Defects: Symptoms Your Child Might Be Suffering From It!

Congenital Heart Defects: Symptoms Your Child Might Be Suffering From It!

Most families refer to their newborn baby as their 'bundle of joy'. The news of a child being born brings immense joy to the entire family. However, due to various reasons, a child could be born with some medical abnormalities, which would be known as congenital abnormalities. There are several different types of heart defects that can be congenital. These usually manifest themselves either immediately after birth or in the early years of life. In some cases, the abnormality could be detected on prenatal ultrasounds. In others, it may not be and the family could be caught off guard about the condition. This causes a lot of stress, both for the child, who does not receive regular postnatal care and for the parents immediately after the delivery process.

If the baby has the following symptoms within the first few hours of life, there could be a serious underlying condition, which requires medical attention. The presence and severity of the symptoms would depend on the actual abnormality.

  1. The skin is pale gray or blue in color due to excessive venous flow in the system
  2. Excessive sweating
  3. The child is exerting to breathe regularly
  4. Rapid breathing causes added load on the heart accompanied by a grunting noise
  5. Flared nostrils i.e. the baby attempts to take in more oxygen with each breath causes flared nostrils
  6. Swollen legs, eyes, and abdomen: Fluid retention in the legs and abdomen is quite common, and this could be characteristic of newborns with congenital heart disease
  7. Shortness of breath, even during feeding
  8. Clubbed fingernails
  9. Lethargy and low energy, even with feeding, therefore very poor feeding pattern
  10. Chest pain, which may cause the newborn to cry incessantly
  11. Low weight gain, as they feed less

In some children, symptoms manifest only during the teenage years or early adulthood. These conditions are not very severe and the symptoms include:

  1. Swelling of the hands, feet, and ankles due to fluid accumulation
  2. Lowered energy levels, leading to easy fatigue
  3. Shortness of breath with even minimal physical activity
  4. Inability to exercise
  5. Developmental delays and changes in growth milestones
  6. Recurrent respiratory tract infections including sinus infections, bronchitis, and pneumonia
  7. Endocarditis
  8. Pulmonary hypertension
  9. Heart failure, where the heart is not able to effectively function and pump blood to all parts of the body.

Some or more of these symptoms should trigger a warning to get the child tested for congenital heart disease. While some would just require a monitoring until severe symptoms develop, severe conditions like holes, abnormal valves, narrowed arteries, and blood vessel abnormalities might require immediate intervention. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a cardiologist.

Dear Doctor, I'm 3 months one week pregnant and I have constipation. If I put little pressure also I will get little bleeding. Please help.

Watermelon is key – This is an old midwives remedy for constipation. Midwives used to boil watermelon seeds to make a tea for pregnant women suffering from constipation, though you can also just eat lots of the fruit. Since it is full of water, it also helps to move food through the bowels. There are a few normal reasons for vaginal bleeding. * Implantation of your fertilized egg causes slight spotting in a minority of woman..[Spotting: very light bleeding similar to the end of your period.] * Cervix is more prone to bleed as blood flow is naturally increased during pregnancy.

Good News: All You Lipitor Users Rejoice!

Good News: All You Lipitor Users Rejoice!

Good news: All you lipitor users rejoice!

Cholesterol is finally officially removed from naughty list. The us government has finally accepted that cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern. Doing a u-turn on their warnings to us to stay away from high-cholesterol foods since the 1970s to avoid heart disease and clogged arteries.

This means eggs, butter, full-fat dairy products, nuts, coconut oil and meat have now been classified as safe and have been officially removed from the nutrients of concern list.

The us department of agriculture, which is responsible for updating the guidelines every five years, stated in its findings for 2015" previously, the dietary guidelines for americans recommended that cholesterol intake be limited to no more than 300 mg/day.

The 2015 DGAC will not bring forward this recommendation because available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, consistent with the aha/acc (american heart association / american college of cardiology)

The dietary guidelines advisory committee will, in response, no longer warn people against eating high-cholesterol foods and will instead focus on sugar as the main substance of dietary concern.

When we eat more foods rich in this compound, our bodies make less. If we deprive ourselves of foods high in cholesterol - such as eggs, butter, and liver - our body revs up. 

The real truth about cholesterol. The majority of the cholesterol in you is produced by your liver. Your brain is primarily made up from cholesterol. It is essential for nerve cells to function. 

Cholesterol is the basis for the creation of all the steroid hormones, including estrogen, testosterone, and corticosteroids. 

High cholesterol in the body is a clear indication which shows the liver of the individual is in good health.

Cholesterol is the biggest medical scam of all time. There is no such thing as bad cholesterol

So you can stop trying to change your cholesterol level. Studies prove beyond a doubt, cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease and it won't stop a heart attack.

The majority of people that have heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels.

Our body needs 950 mg of cholesterol for daily metabolism and the liver is the main producer. Only 15% of cholesterol is being donated by the food we eat. Got to work more to maintain the level at 950 mg.

If the cholesterol level is high in our body, it shows the liver is working perfect.

Bleeding should start after misoprostol. At times bleeding is there for 12-13 days. Then ultrasound is done to ensure complete evacuation.
