Childhood Obesity

I am Dr I.P.S Kochar, pediatrics, endocrinologist and diabetologist. Today I will be talkingt to you about Child Obesity which is becoming prevealant and epidermic in India and other countries also. So, it is increasing day by day. More than 65 million of the people are facing Child Obesity under the age of 5 years.

So, if you have any child or infant who is obese. The child will have to suffer from many problems in future.

What do you mean by Obesity?

Obesity means there is an abnormal or excessive fat accumulation in the body. So, over weight and Obesity, both are same. Obesity can cause number of problems. There are many types of complications, those are;

  • In future, a child can have heart disease. THese are all metabolic problems.
  • There are more chances of getting obesity in adulthood.
  • Child get more prone to HYpertension.
  • Girls get more prone to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
  • Reproductive problems
  • Dyslipidemia

These are some of the metabolics which can occur. Besides this, the children can have non-metabolic problems like joint pains at early stage, difficulty in walking, sleep apnea problems and there can be other psychological problems. Children may have low confidence level, low self esteem. So these are the problems which are commonly found in such patients.

What should be done to get rid of this Child Obesity?

One of the major factor is lifestyle. People are becoming technically dependent. People are using AC Cars, Children are going to AC schools and buses. The play time in the schools has decreased greatly. This is all aggrevated to cause Obesity.

The food intake has also become different. Children are consuming more of junk food. high fatty food, high salty food which is one of a major cause of Obesity.

Not only people from urban area are becoming obese but also the people from rural area. This problem is required to be solved. 

The main thing is that we have to change our lifestyle. People have to change their food habits, they have to indulge in the routine exercise. So, there is a simple formula called 5-3-2-1, where,

  • 5 means taking 5 portions of veggies or fruits everyday.
  • 4 means taking 4 glasses of water per day.
  • 3 means 3 times mil in a day.

If you don't remember this, atleast remember 5-2-1, where,

  • 2 means that do not use gadgets for more than 2  hours in a day.
  • 1 hour of physical activity in a day.

So, this formula is very helpful if children follow it. So, try to take low carbohydrates, low fat, more protein in the diet. One should try to change their lifestyle because the obesity is causing all these major problems.

Now, we are getting more children of 5 years, 8 years , 10 yeras with non-communicable disease like Obesity, hypertension, diabtes. Diabtes type-2 has also started coming in the children and the adolescence population only because of the lifestyle.

Now you see many girls whop are obese at the age of 12 -18 years. THey suffering problems like impaired glucose tolerance, they are getting black areas in the neck and also they are getting reproductive problems, hair on the face, so all these problems are increasing the complications. 

I would recommend to only change the lifestyle, make changes in the food habits and try to indulge in the routine exercises.

If you want to contact me, you can do so via Lybrate or you can visit my clinic which is in Noida. But pelase do follow the above mentioned tips.

My baby is one month and 8 days old. He has vomited twice in 4 days at night during feed. I get so scared when the milk comes out of his nose also. What to do when he vomits I literally get chills and do not know what to do while he is vomiting.

Spit up is quite common among the babies. When he vomits just make him turn on either of his side so that he does not aspirate into his lungs and the milk comes out. If your child is gaining weight, there is no fever or other issues, there is nothing to worry about. Make sure you are burping your child about 20 to 30 minutes post feed. Warm regards.

Is hyperactivity related to Adenoid? My daughter is hyperactive and aggressively disturbed that she throws tantrums and react violently if we act against her interests. She used to be physically punished badly by my wife all these years. Please advice.

No, it is not related to Adenoids. By the way you don't seem to understand yours daughter's problems. It seems like ADHD, consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Read below. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects children and teens and can continue into adulthood. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed mental disorder of children. Children with ADHD may be hyperactive and unable control their impulses. Or they may have trouble paying attention. These behaviors interfere with school and home life. It more common in boys than in girls. Its usually discovered during the early school years, when a child begins to have problems paying attention. Symptoms are grouped into three categories: Inattention. Is easily distracted Doesn't follow directions or finish tasks Doesn't appear to be listening Doesn't pay attention and makes careless mistakes Forgets about daily activities Has problems organizing daily tasks Doesnt like to do things that require sitting still Often loses things Tends to daydream Hyperactivity. Often squirms, fidgets, or bounces when sitting Doesn't stay seated Has trouble playing quietly Is always moving, such as running or climbing on things (In teens and adults, this is more commonly described as restlessness.) Talks excessively Is always â on the go as if driven by a motor Impulsivity. Has trouble waiting for his or her turn Blurts out answers Interrupts others Causes of ADHD The cause of ADHD isnât known. Researchers say several things may lead to it, including: Heredity. ADHD tends to run in families. Chemical imbalance. Brain chemicals in people with ADHD may be out of balance. Brain changes. Areas of the brain that control attention are less active in children with ADHD. Poor nutrition, infections, smoking, drinking, and substance abuse during pregnancy. These things can affect a babys brain development. Toxins, such as lead. They may affect a child's brain development. A brain injury or a brain disorder. Damage to the front of the brain, called the frontal lobe, can cause problems with controlling impulses and emotions. Sugar doesnt cause ADHD. ADHD also isnt caused by watching too much TV, a poor home life, poor schools, or food allergies. ADHD can't be prevented or cured. But spotting it early, plus having a good treatment and education plan, can help a child or adult with ADHD manage their symptoms. ADHD Treatment Many symptoms of ADHD can be managed with medication and therapy. Medication: Medications called stimulants can help control hyperactive and impulsive behavior and increase attention span. They include: Dexmethylphenidate Dextroamphetamine Lisdexamfetamine Methylphenidate Stimulant medications donât work for everyone with ADHD. Nonstimulant medications may be prescribed for people older than 6. These include: Atomoxetine Clonidine Guanfacine Therapy: These treatments focus on changing behavior. Special education helps a child learn at school. Having structure and a routine can help children with ADHD a lot. Behavior modification teaches ways to replace bad behaviors with good ones. Psychotherapy (counseling) can help someone with ADHD learn better ways to handle their emotions and frustration. It can also help improve their self-esteem. Counseling may also help family members better understand the child or adult with ADHD. Social skills training can teach behaviors, such as taking turns and sharing. Support groups of people with similar problems and needs can help with acceptance and support. Groups also can provide a way to learn more about ADHD. These groups are helpful for adults with ADHD or parents of children with ADHD. Many people with ADHD live successful, happy, full lives. Treatment helps. Itâs important to pay attention to symptoms and see a doctor regularly. Sometimes, medication and treatments that were once effective stop working. You may need to change the treatment plan. For many people, the symptoms of ADHD get better in early adulthood, and some are able to stop treatment.

What is the proper treatment for sweets syndrome for the 3 years baby suffering from 3 months. Is it curable permanently. How much time it can take.

The treatment of Sweet syndrome is directed toward the specific symptoms that are apparent in each individual. In some cases, Sweet syndrome may resolve itself with no treatment, although this can take weeks to months. The mainstay of treatment is with systemic corticosteroids. In most cases, treatment with low doses of corticosteroids such as methylprednisolone or prednisone has proven effective in eliminating symptoms, sometimes rapidly resolving symptoms. However, Sweet syndrome often recurs periodically despite therapy. For isolated lesions, local therapy may consist of topical corticosteroids (creams of gels) or directly injecting corticosteroids into the lesion (intralesional corticosteroid).
