Dear, dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is a learning disability characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. Dyslexia and depression are not related. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist.

Headache and dizziness can be because of some opthalmic refractory error- means he might need specs. So first check his number and if its ok, see a pediatric neurophysician.

1) my baby sleeps fast while drinking milk, she is one month old, m not sure if I have enough milk or if she is tried sucking and than sleeps. I am giving her lactogen as top up 2) also I wanted to know if lactogen is good as top up or mum mum.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Babies do sleep more during the day. They are not able to distinguish the difference between day and night. Monitoring regularly the growth and development by assessing weight and head circumference it can be decided if the baby gets enough nutrition, it is not ideal to give anything except breastmilk in first 4-6 months. Ask privately for regular advice on child rearing.

My daughter is almost 20 months old and have been running with high fever for 2 to 3 days.. Fever being 102 to 103 degrees. Have consulted a doc here in Mumbai but medicines don't seem to work. Her fever returns post few hours of dosage. She has vomited too esp post taking medicines in her anger since she didn't want to take medicines and we had pushed it down her throat. We aren't sure of the height exactly but doc mentioned she is fine with respect to height, age and weight. Medicines prescribed - 5 ML Macpod 50 twice a day for 6 days and 3.75 ML meftal P thrice a day till fever exists. This wasn't working so we again checked with the doc and he suggested to give 6 ML Crocin instead of meftal. She falls sick every 3 odd months with fever and get running nose too. We are really worried and thinking of getting blood and urine tests done. Pls suggest.

Yes if there are frequent infection like this then you must get cbc blood culture urine r/m and basic abdominal sonography shall be done. However these kids in infancy or around infancy do develop frequent seasonal infection specially flu like illness what is evident from history given by you as well. So preferably your child should get regular flu vaccine. After child is without fever for at least few days. I can understand worry would be highest peak for you. But don't worry things are going to be fine.

I am 39 years old Indian, vegetarian man. My son (Born Aug. 2010), for last 2 years, has stopped eating proper meals, only drinks bottled milk (100 ml) 4-5 times a day, or want to eat snacks like chips, biscuits, namkeen, but that too very little quantity. Due to this he remains constipated (pass bowel in 3-4 days) and irritated. This is a vicious kind of cycle where he remains constipated as he not takes proper food in good quantity and on the other hand - don't want to eat because of constant bowel pressure. He doesn't take any Allopathic medicine or tonic. His height is approx 3 ft. and weight 15 Kg. He is otherwise very active child.

Looks like your five year old has never been weaned properly from milk to regular home food T the right time. He is now a big boy and you must set some basic ground rules for feeding. You'll have to stop snacks, set times for 3 major meals and not give more than 500 ml of milk per day. Making meals interesting, offering variations and involving child in food discussion and preparation as a play activity will help to change your faulty feeding patterns.

Dear lybrate-user, yes you can offer oats to your 8mth baby. Oats are good cereals containing digestible fibre ,proteins, vitE and, carbohydrates .By increasing intestine transit time it gives satiety. Only fat is to be mixed in the form of ghee or edible oils to make it complete food for your baby.

Hi  First: medicines are mandatory.  Otherwise ypu might have weight gain, muscle ache, sleep and anxiety issues as well as gynaecological and cardiac issues later. You need to get an USG neck done  and an FNAC USG guided of thyroid gland. FT3/FT4/TSH  If ypu have already done these tests Share on Lybrate I can help you better. Any history of alcohol  intake /fatty food /sugary food How much exercise do you get done every day? Ideally you should be doing a good mix of cardio, weights and crossfit  exercises to keep you healthy Together  with a balanced diet with optimum  healthy fat protein and carbs.  Avoid  deep fried fatty food and fast food. No soft drinks /sugary drinks. I am outlining  food you should avoid or restrict in Hypothyroidism. It's important  you maintain  your body weight exercise regularly. Weight gain increases thyroid hormone requirements.  Avoid cruciferous   group of veggies  like cabbage and broccoli. Avoid soya bean in all forms. No soya, nugget, chunk, tofu or milk. Limit their intake: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, turnips, and bok choy. Cooking the vegetables can reduce the effect that cruciferous vegetables have on the thyroid gland. Limiting your intake to 5 ounces a day appears to have no adverse effect on thyroid function. Decrease gluten  intake from processed  food. Always try whole grain varieties of cereals which is rich in fibres and help improve  bowels (Take your thyroid replacement  medicine several hours before or several hours after food rich in fibres. Otherwise problem  with absorption  of hormone. 20 to 35 gram of fibres daily from all sources. Avoid excessive fatty (deep fried) and sugary food as hypothyroidism  causes your metabolism  to slow down &weight gain. Avoid highly salted food, chips, pickles, sauces as they Contain  large amount of sodium. Hypothyroidism  puts you at risk of high BP and excess sodium in salt aggravates Coffee  in excess. And coffee with thyroid hormone  replacement  can prevent absorption.  Alcohol. It is toxic to thyroid gland and prevents  hormone production and absorption. The problems of hypothyroidism  gets better with medicines, diet and exercise.  You will start  Better as the levels of your hormone normalises.  Initially  you need to do the TSH test every 6 weeks till normal TSH then every 3 months Diet /EXERCISE/Medicines/Sleep/meditation: 5 pillars of health needed to live the healthiest Chronic ITP and fibroid will have to be answered by other specialists. Hope this helps Let me know.  Take care

Bachon ki Khansi ka ilaj

बहुत आम पर हालत बिगाड़ देने वाली आम बीमारियों में से एक है खांसी। खांसी अगर गम्भीर रूप में हो जाए तो हेल्दी हेल्दी व्यक्ति भी थक हार कर सुस्त पड़ जाता है। शरीर का हर हिस्सा दर्द महसूस करने लगता है क्योंकि खांसते समय इसका असर केवल गले पर ही नही बल्कि सीना पेट हाथ पैर सब पर इफ़ेक्ट पड़ता है। बड़े तो फिर भी अपनी तकलीफ बयान कर भी लेते हैं और उसका इलाज भी कर लेते हैं पर सोचने की बात है कि बच्चों को खांसी होने पर उनका क्या हाल होता होगा। क्योंकि ना वो बता पाते हैं ना खुदसे अपनी मदद कर सकते हैं। इसलिए जरूरी है कि हमें पूरी जानकारी हो बच्चों को होने वाली खांसी की वजह और उसके इलाज के लिए घरेलू नुस्खों के बारे में।

दरसलश्लेम यानी म्यूकसको बाहर निकालने की कोशिश में या फिर गले और वायु मार्ग में सूजन होनेकी वजह से शिशु खांसता है।खांसी की वजह बहुत सी होती हैं, मगर आमतौर पर यह सर्दी-जुकाम या फ्लू का लक्षण होता है। ऐसे में हम अक्सर दवाओं का सहारा लेते हैं पर आपको यह बात पता होनी चाहिए कि सर्दी, जुकाम, खांसी जैसी बीमारियों में दवा देने की बजाय होम रेमेडीज अपनानी चाहिए। क्योंकि इन बीमारियों का नेचुरल तरीके से इलाज करना जितना बेहतर होता है उतना ही अंग्रेजी दवाओं से इलाज करना नेगेटिव साइड इफ़ेक्ट से भरपूर। तो आइए आज हम जानेंगे शिशुओं को होने वाली खांसी कारण और इससे राहत दिलाने वाले कुछ घरेलू नुस्खे।

खांसी के कारण

1. सर्दी-जुकाम
अगर आपके शिशु को सर्दी-जुकाम की वजह से खांसी हो रही हो, तो उसे साथ में बंद नाक, बहती नाक, गले में खारिश, आंखों में पानी और बुखार जैसे लक्षण भी हो सकते हैं। जुकाम की वजह से बनने वाले अतिरिक्त श्लेम को निकालने के लिए आपका शिशु खांसता है।

2. फ्लू
फ्लू के लक्षण सर्दी-जुकाम की तरह ही लग सकते हैं। अगर, आपके शिशु को फ्लू हो, तो उसे बुखार, नाक बहना और कई बार दस्त (डायरिया) या उल्टी भी हो सकती है। मगर फ्लू की वजह से होने वाली खांसी, जुकाम वाली खांसी से अलग होगी। यह बलगम वाली खांसी की बजाय सूखी खांसी होगी। इसका मतलब यह है कि आपका शिशु खांसी के साथ काफी कम बलगम निकाल रहा होगा।

3. क्रूप
अगर शिशु को क्रूप हो, तो उसे वायु मार्ग में सूजने होने की वजह से खांसी होगी। शिशुओं का वायु मार्ग काफी संकरा होता है और आपसे काफी छोटा होता है। इसलिए इनमें सूजन होने पर शिशु के लिए सांस लेना मुश्किल हो जाता है। छह माह और तीन साल के बीच के बच्चों को क्रूप होने की संभावना ज्यादा होती है। क्रूप खांसी मे भौंकने जैसी आवाज निकलती है। जो कि अक्सर रात में शुरु होती है।

4. काली खांसी 
काली खांसी या कुक्कर खांसी एक बैक्टिरियल इंफेक्शनहै। यह काफी संक्रामक होती है। काली खांसी में बहुत ज्यादा और खुश्क खांसी होती है। इसमें बहुत सारा श्लेम निकलता है और खांसते समय सांस लेते हुए उच्च स्वर या ध्वनि निकलती है।

5. दमा
शिशु को दमा की वजह से भी खांसी हो सकती है। अस्थमा से ग्रस्त शिशु की सांस लेते व छोड़ते समय श्वास फूलती है। उनकी छाती भी कस जाती है और सांस की कमी होने लगती है।

6. तपेदिक 
लगातार रहने वाली खांसी टी.बी. का लक्षण हो सकता है। टी.बी. की खांसी दो सप्ताह से ज्यादा जारी रहती है। टी.बी. से ग्रस्त शिशु की खांसी में खून आ सकता है, उसे सांस लेने में कठिनाई हो सकती है और भूख लगना कम हो सकती है। शिशु को बुखार भी हो सकता है।

बच्चों की खांसी के उपचार के लिए घरेलू नुस्खे 

1. गर्म तरल चीजें पिलाएं
बच्चे को ठंडे की बजाय गर्म पानी और बाकी चीज भी गर्म तासीर वाली ही पिलाएं जिससे गले की सूजन को आराम मिलेगा।

2. वाष्पित्र या वेपोरब का इस्तेमाल करें
वेपोरब २ साल के बच्चे को भी खॉँसी में तेजी से राहत देता है। इस जादुई रगड़ में मेन्थॉल, कपूर और नीलगिरी जैसी सामग्री हैंबच्चे को आराम दिलाती है।

3. सिर ऊंचा कर के सुलाएं
बलगम नाक से गले में टपक सकता है, जिसके परिणाम में गंभीर खाँसी हो सकती है। शरीर की ऐसी मुद्रा बहाव को प्रेरित कर सकती है। इसलिए बच्चे को उंचे स्थान पर सिर रखकर सोने से बहाव न होने में मदद होगी।

4. हल्दी की मदद लें
गर्म दूध के साथ आधी चम्मच हल्दी पाउडर मिलाए और बेहतर राहत पाने के इस मिश्रण को गरम ही पिलाएं। या फिरगर्म पानीमें एक चुटकी हल्दी पाउडर और नमक मिलाकर बच्चे से गरारा करवाने की कोशिश करें।

5. शहद अपनाएं
रात के समय सूखी खांसी से राहत के लिए बच्चे को सुलाने के पहलेउसे गर्म दूध में मिलाकर पिलाएं।

6. अदरक
एक कप पानी में अदरक के टुकड़ों को ड़ाल कर इस मिश्रण को आधि मात्रा होने तक उबालकर छान के इसमे एक चम्मच शहद डालकर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

7. तुलसी
तुलसी के पत्तों का रस निकाल कर बच्चे को पिलाएं।

8. अंगूर का जादू
अंगूर प्राकृतिक कफोत्सारक हैं और वे आपके फेफड़ों से कफ निकाल देते हैं। इन फलों के रस में शहद मिलाए और इस रसको बच्चे सोने से पहले थोड़ा सा पिलाएं।

9. एलोवेरा
बड़ों की खांसी हो या बच्चे की खांसी एलोवेरा का रस और शहद के मिश्रण काफी असरदार नुस्खा है।
