Ways To Deal With Rickets In Children!

Ways To Deal With Rickets In Children!

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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

“Look, Mom! I Have a Loose Tooth!

“Look, Mom! I Have a Loose Tooth!
It’s a pretty special moment when your child runs to you for the first time and tells you their tooth is loose. For a child, loose teeth means that they’ll be a big kid soon. For parents, it means their little one is growing up fast…maybe a little too fast. So what should you do when your child comes to you with the exciting news? Here are the things every parent should know about losing that first tooth.

When do kids start losing their baby teeth?
Children will lose their first tooth around age 6. They’ll continue to lose 3–4 teeth per year until they have lost all 20 of their baby teeth by about age 12.

Which teeth fall out first?
Baby teeth usually fall out in the order they came in. The front bottom teeth are often the first to go. The last teeth to fall out are usually the big molars in the back of the mouth.

Does losing a tooth hurt?
Losing a tooth shouldn’t hurt very much. If it is very painful, it probably means that your child is trying to pull a tooth that’s not quite ready to come out. If the pain gets bad, you can put an over-the-counter, pain-relieving gel on the gum surrounding the tooth. Make sure it’s for children, and don’t use it too much or too often.

Should I pull a loose tooth?
The short answer is no. It can tear the gum tissue around the tooth and cause injury. Allow your child to gently wiggle their tooth. But tell them they should let a tooth fall out on its own.

What happens if my child swallows their tooth?
Nothing, really. Accidentally swallowing a tooth isn’t a big deal. It will simply pass through the body.

Will there be a lot of blood when my child loses their tooth?
There shouldn’t be very much blood at all. When there is a lot of blood, it is usually caused by forcing a tooth out before it is ready. To stop bleeding, have your child bite down on gauze, cotton ball or a clean cloth until the bleeding slows.

When do permanent teeth start to grow in?
Usually it takes a few weeks for the permanent tooth to begin to poke through. It will take a few months more for the tooth to fully grow in.

What to do when i see a permanent tooth erupting before the baby tooth has fallen out?
You need to visit your dentist and get a examination done for your child. In some cases it may be advisable to remove the baby tooth to make way for the permanent one.

My son is 3 years old boy. Psychologist said he is having mild autism. So I am sending behaviour therapy. I want to know that can I give him banana and apples. Is it affects him. One of mother near by my house told to cut this item. So I am having this doubt.

You should not cut down his diet. Just give him sweets/carbohydrates in limited amount. If you will restrict his diet then this may become major issue in long term

Hello lybrate-user. Stargardt is one of the most common macular dystrophy wherein the gene responsible for removal of toxic metabolites is absent which results in accumulation of lipofuschin leading to damage to photoreceptors which are responsible for vision. Currently, there is no treatment for the disease. Wearing sunglasses and hats outdoors and blue-light blocking glasses when exposed to artificial light sources reduces the buildup of lipofuscin. Use of low vision aid also helps. Antioxidats, isotretinoin, gene therapy are all in the experimental stage for treatment modality. I would recommend you to see a ocular geneticist for any recent research update and for genetic counselling.

I just delivered a baby. He is 2 months. Post pregnancy I have been taking beta carotene n selenium anti oxidants supplements along with calcium. I am completely breast feeding. I hope this will not affect my baby. Also my baby has atopic dermatitis after 10 days of his birth.

You should be fine. Continue breast feeding, drink lot of fluids and enjoy the baby. Continue with supplements but do not over do it. All babies get some amount of atopic dermatitis. A light application of desowen lotion just a couple of times on the affected area willl do the trick.
