My daughter 14 years old have been diagnosed with thyroid, TSH value 42. What is the treatment.

Please take her to a doctor (endocrinologist) for a check up. If required some more tests may be advised. Let the doctor assess her health and start with the treament. You may note that it requires regular follow up. Please ensure that she eats healthy food and be physically active and maintains an ideal weight. Let her learn yoga which can be very beneficial for her healing. Later, you can also add Homeopathy which stimulates the body to respond naturally to bring back normalcy as far as possible. You can contact me for a detailed consultation so that Homeopathic remedies that suit her constitution can be given.

Hearing Loss in Children - Signs + Treatment

MBBS (M.A.M.C), M.S. ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Hearing Loss in Children - Signs + Treatment

You may find out that your child is suffering from hearing loss when he is born or he may be diagnosed with the condition later in life. Hearing loss in children is commonly caused by otitis media, birth problems and on the account of certain injuries or illnesses.

Signs and symptoms

The early stage symptoms of hearing loss in children are as follows:

  1. No reaction to extremely loud noises

  2. No response or reaction to your voice

  3. The child makes some sounds, which taper off

The other symptoms which follow include:

  1. He may pull and rub his ears.

  2. He may act cranky constantly without any proper reason.

  3. He might stop paying attention.

  4. Low energy levels are indicated.

  5. He may find it hard to follow directions.

  6. He may ask you to increase the volume of the radio or TV.

  7. Fever and ear pain are also likely symptoms.

Treatment

Early hearing loss can affect your child’s language learning skills. If the problem is diagnosed and treated soon, the problem with language can be avoided. The method of treatment depends on the cause of hearing loss in your child and the severity of hearing loss.

There are certain medicines for hearing---prescribed by your ENT Surgeon. Pleas take the point watchful waiting. Even if you have slightest doubt of hearing loss contact ENT immediately.

The primary treatment methods of hearing loss in children include the following:

  1. Watchful waiting: Sometimes, the condition may resolve on its own and the treatment involves simple monitoring of your child for positive changes.

  2. Medicines: There are certain medicines for hearing loss in children, which may be prescribed by your pediatrician.

  3. Ear tubes: Ear tubes may be recommended if medicines and monitoring do not work. The tubes allow fluid to drain and help in preventing infections. A minor surgery has to be undertaken on your child for getting the ear tubes placed. This will solve the hearing loss and other related issues.

  4. Hearing aids: Hearing aids may be used to allow your child hear better. It is safe for children to use ear tubes after the age of one month. For the right hearing aid for your child, you need to consult a hearing specialist.

  5. Implants: Cochlear implants are used to treat hearing loss in many children. These are electronic devices which are put in the inner ear to benefit hearing. These should be used only if hearing aids did not succeed and these are meant to be used only in case of children with serious hearing problems.

There are several other devices, which can help your child with hearing loss. For suggestions and recommendations, you must take your child to a hearing specialist.

Wait, have patience. It takes time for skin and sclera to become normal (colour), even if serum bili comes down. Ask treating doctor and get your doubts clear.

She is my grand daughter and very healthily born. Recently she suffered with cold and consulted a physician in USA, where they are living now, near Sanfransisco, California. She was advised nebulizer as and when she gets wheezing. Please clear whether she is safe or not, or may lead to Asthma, which is hell of a disease. Kindly clear my doubt.

Wheezing in children is a very common problem now and many children grow out of it with age. Nebulizer is a safe treatment for wheezing and it itself does not cause or leads to asthma.

Hi the difference between pentavac (painful) and pentaxim (painless) one is regarding one of the component. (pertussis). But there is a slight advantage of painful over painless one. As it's just the second dose you can switch over the painful one. It has got it's own side effects. Thanks.
