Good evening. Most likely he is having tonsillitis which would require proper course of antibiotics along with warm saline gargles and avoiding cold drinks, ice creams, products like wafers, kurkure, cheese balls etc.

What Is Progeria Syndrome?

What is progeria syndrome?

Progeria syndrome is the term for a group of disorders that cause rapid aging in children. In Greek, “progeria” means prematurely old. Children with this condition live to an average age of 13 years old.

Progeria syndrome is rare. According to the Progeria Research Foundation, it affects about 1 in 20 million people. An estimated 350 to 400 kids are living with the syndrome at any given time in the world. Progeria affects children regardless of their gender or ethnicity.

Types of progeria syndrome :

The most common type of progeria syndrome is Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome. It’s a rare and fatal genetic disorder. Wiedemann-Rautenstrauch syndrome is another type of progeria syndrome. It appears in children while they’re still in utero.

The adult version of progeria syndrome is Werner syndrome. The symptoms of Werner syndrome normally occur in teenagers. People with this condition may live into their 40s or 50s.

What causes progeria?

Progeria is caused by a genetic mutation. The mutation occurs in the LMNA gene. This gene is responsible for producing a protein that helps maintain the structural integrity of the nucleus in cells. Without strength in its nucleus, a cell’s structure is weak. This leads to rapid aging.

While progeria affects genes, experts don’t think it’s hereditary. Parents who have one child who has progeria don’t have a higher chance of having another child who has it.

Symptoms :

Most kids with progeria look healthy when they're born, but they start to show signs of the disease during their first year. Babies with progeria do not grow or gain weight normally. They develop physical traits including:

A bigger head
Large eyes
A small lower jaw
A thin nose with a "beaked" tip
Ears that stick out
Veins you can see
Slow and abnormal tooth growth
A high-pitched voice
Loss of body fat and muscle
Hair loss, including eyelashes and eyebrows

Diagnosing Progeria :

Since the symptoms are very noticeable, it's likely that your child's pediatrician will spot them during a routine checkup.

If you see changes in your child that seem like symptoms of progeria, make an appointment with your pediatrician or family doctor. Your doctor will do a physical exam, test hearing and vision, measure pulse and blood pressure, and compare your child's height and weight to other kids the same age.

Afterward, if your pediatrician is concerned, you may need to see a specialist in medical genetics, who can confirm the diagnosis with a blood test.

My child is suffering from diarrhea due to teething from last 5 days, how to cure it.
Chammomilla 30 tds for 3 days with saccrum lactis 200 tds for 3 days. Give her plenty for water so that complication not occur further and also try that any things your child put into his mouth is clean properly. Mostly this is due to infection.

Severe vomiting needs proper assessment. In this season these are mainly due to viral organism but still you have to be vigilant avoiding dehydration so use ors. Plenty of liquids. Give probiotics like enterogermina. Natural form like buttermilk. Dal ka pani. Normal water lemon water etc etc and get stool r/m done. Avoid lactose containing products for feeding.

Pollution - How It Can Affect Your Child's Lungs?

MD - Pulmonary, DTCD

Pollution - How It Can Affect Your Child's Lungs?

Air pollution is known to take a toll on the lungs of even the healthiest adults. So, it comes as no surprise that the effects of this pollution on the lungs of children is deemed as a grave situation, full of health hazards including the onset of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorders and conditions like asthma and other lung disorders. Read on to find out more about the link between air pollution and its effect on the lungs of children.

Children's Lungs: Mostly, all the organs of a child's body are considered delicate and not fully matured until the child reaches a certain age. The main and largest part of the child's lungs will usually grow only after the child is born, much like the arms and legs. In fact, it is a medically proven fact that about 80% of the tiniest of air sacs grow after the child's birth, these are called the alveoli and they facilitate the transfer of the oxygen into the bloodstream with a life-sustaining function that is built into our lungs. These alveoli continue to grow until the child becomes an adult. 

Immunity and Infections: Like the lungs of the child, the immunity of the child is also still in its growth phase, and is very much, unlike the immunity that an adult enjoys. This makes the child more susceptible to infections that are usually carried by air pollution in today's day and age of urban living when myriad pollutants are sent into the air every single day. Also, since children play outdoors more often and spend more time breathing in this air, they are more prone to these infections and lung or respiratory ailments due to this reason. Various studies and tests have shown inflammation in the respiratory passages caused by deposits of carbon dioxide emissions in the lungs of children.

Symptoms: Usually, the very first symptoms that show that air pollution is affecting your child's lungs can be seen when persistent coughing and wheezing sets in, without any proper reason. Also, when the child faces bronchial infections time and time again, all these are indicators of hazardous effects of air pollution in children.

Respiratory problems: Apart from respiratory problems, which can lead to asthmatic attacks, hay fever and allergies as well as other COPD ailments, there are other related dangers as well. These can happen when constant choking and obstruction of oxygen due to pollution becomes a regular affair. These include stroke and brain damage which can eventually also lead to a higher risk of dementia. 

How can you protect your child during such times?

  1. Restrict outdoor activity for the time being, especially during the early morning and evening
  2. Make sure that your child wears a face mask when outside, preferably N95 or 99
  3. Use air purifiers at home 
  4. Go green and use indoor plants that can remove indoor toxins
  5. Boost your child's immunity
  6. Lastly, keep a track of air quality index in your locality
