What is Rickets? How to Prevent Your CHILD From the Disorder?

What is Rickets? How to Prevent Your CHILD From the Disorder?

A nutritional disorder, the problem of rickets occurs if your child suffers from a deficiency of calcium, phosphate or Vitamin D. It causes softened and damaged bones, skeletal deformities, impaired development of the bone's growth plate (a spot of growing tissue found near the end of a long bone in adolescents and children) and stunted growth.

Here are few very simple ways you can prevent your child from getting it:

1. Having Vitamin D and calcium rich foods - One of the best ways to prevent this nutritional disorder from affecting your child is by making sure he or she have foods that are high in Vitamin D and calcium. Egg yolks, fish oil or fatty fish like salmon and mackerel are some of the Vitamin D foods that your child can have to strengthen his bones. Even foods that have Vitamin D added to it such as cereals, orange juice, milk and infant formula can also be given to your child. Sources of calcium can be soyabeans, nuts, broccoli, cabbage, cheese and yoghurt.

2. Going out in the sun - Considered to be an excellent source of Vitamin D, getting your child exposed to sunlight is another excellent way of getting most of this nutrient, as well as preventing him or her from developing rickets. Although the exposure time may vary from individual to individual, about 10-15 minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen can help.

3. Having Vitamin D supplements - Even the consumption of Vitamin D supplements can reduce your child's risk of getting rickets. Since mother's milk contains less than the recommended Vitamin D amount, infants too need to be put on Vitamin D supplements of 400 IU each day. For teenagers and young children, the recommended dosage is 600 IU of Vitamin D every day.

I am 48 years old having Diabetes (upto 210 after 2.5 hrs of meal. While sleeping my throat becomes dry. Please advise.

I am 48 years old having Diabetes (upto 210 after 2.5 hrs of meal. While sleeping my throat becomes dry. Please advise.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for your query. PP 210 mg after 2.5 hours is high. It is better if you had given following readings: FBG, PP (after 2 hours) & HbA1c%, that would have given a clear idea of your blood glucose control. Usually if blood glucose is high, then more glucose is passed in the urine, which in turn leads to excess thirst and dryness of throat. So it is essential to control blood glucose effectively. FBG should be <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Hence if you have any doubts please come in a private conversation with all the above details plus, deitary pattern and extent of daily exercise being done, then I will be able to guide specifically. Thanks.

Hello, you can apply baking soda over it or do baking soda in water mouth rinses. This will help to heal ulcers. If they still persist, you need to consult a physician and get your Vitamin B level checked. If required, take supplements for it.

It gives a strong protection, bu exchange of fluids with high viral load always has the risk, more so in raw area. So even after using condom, if ur going to kiss or share body fluids with mouth ulcers, the risk is there

You need not worry about it. For headache: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall making 90 degree angle for 10 mins. This will instantly relieve your headache temporarily. It might be migraine. Please consult for permanent cure.

This could be Allergy, bronchitis or bronchial asthma. However you may have to see your doctor for proper clinical examination, Diagnosis and treatment. Bed rest, plenty of oral liquid anti allergic tablets and cough syrup to release the sputum will help.
