What is dyslexia? whats the main reason behind it? and what are the symptoms?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Dyslexia is primarily associated with trouble reading. Some doctors, specialists and educators may refer to it as a ?reading disorder? or a ?reading disability.? But it can also affect writing, spelling and even speaking. People with dyslexia can still understand complex ideas. Sometimes they just need more time to work through the information. They may also need a different way to process the information, such as listening to an audiobook instead of reading it.

Doctor my baby was born through force delivery with a good weight of 3.4kg, on 17th of January. Now he is 23 days, but for a few days I am observing that he feeds a lot, like continuously for 2-3 hours, and doesn't stop till the time he falls asleep. If stopped he cries continuously, doesn't stop. He also has disturbed sleep. I am worried what is happening to my baby, why he cries so much. Kindly help.

Initial three months baby will sleep full day disturbs at full night. So feed baby every two hourly. If baby is doing like that it means you not getting sufficient milk. Consult the Dr. To see wether you have sufficient milk to feed baby or not. If not then you need to start baby substitute milk. Once baby have full stomach he should sleep two hours and again feeding them playing them sleep this cycle of baby should be there.

Calcium and vitamin supplements are not a must. Only thing is by 7 months, you to wean him off exclusive breast feeding and start him on nutritious semi solid foods. Now you can give him semi solid home food and continue breast feeding to meet his growing body needs.

It's not related to loose motions. Some children become unconscious and bluish after a bout of excessive crying. It's called as breath holding spell. It's a sort of psychological problem. Show to a good doctor.

Milk powder does more harm than good and if she tries with a calm mind and takes Lactare capsule she will get milk

Weight for age is less. Should be around 9.5 -10 kg. Give high calory food like butter, cheese, ghee, avoid biscuits and cerelac. Give sprouted pulses. Give dry fruits, jaggery etc.

The best way to deal with allergies is to avoid the allergens. Any episode like the present one can be dealt with cetirizine or other antiallergic drugs. Warm regards.

Coughing is one of the most common reasons why people visit their doctors. When symptoms last for more than a few weeks, the cough would be diagnosed as being chronic. The most common causes of chronic cough include post nasal drip, asthma and acid reflux. Post nasal drip, caused by allergic rhinitis, and asthma certainly could be caused by allergies, which could be worse seasonally.

No, excessive sugar in diet coupled with poor oral hygeine results in dental caries. Avoid candies, regularly brush twice a day & visit a dentist to know extent of damage.
