I understood that your son developed swelling on face and penis after one month of passing blood in urine that is now for 3 months and nothing abnormal was detected on investigation at that time and now he is free from blood in urine. There must be some reason for blood in urine. Any way, Pls get done his urine R/E, CBC and Serum Protein analysis and inform.

This is a common complaint made by parents. In my opinion it is parents who are at fault. Young kids do not know what is good for them so they continue with natural way of getting nutrition . At the age of 5-6 months mother must start giving liquid,semisolids as weaning food.Failure to do it results in malnutrition anorexia

Dear Doctor, This mail is regarding my child who is 10 years old and issues related to him are: 1.He had Dengue last year 2015 and was hospitalized for two weeks, and had 18 bottles IV fluid administered, he recovered but, his immunity has gone down. 2.He has started eating rather, hogs on food, has put up weight, he is 43 kgs now. 3. He has become lazy and has no interest in studies, was a very good student he used to be in 1- 3 ranking in the class. 4. His memory has gone down, because of his laziness. 5. Very important. He has got adenoids. Some extra growth inside nose which has to be operated, very soon we are deciding on that. Please, advice on this issue. Thanks.

He might be 5th std. As we know children always vulnerable to suffer any type of disease till 10-12 years, unfortunate to know, he suffered from Dengue. Here, Im addressing of you 3-4th questions. Usually Childhood disorder, there would some precipitating factor to develop any types of problems usually, that would be no doubt academic activities. Stop worrying about his physical illness anyway that can be taken proper treatment. Now he required special attention related to his future in terms of academic activities need to be given special attention. My advise 1. Whatever he had general health complication is there first should be treated 2. Should not be over pampered at this stage by providing all he wanted 3. Find out Clinical or child Psychologist get id did done his IQ, he will also take care of counselling if required 4. Find out some special educator where he can be motivated and given special coaching for him as per his course curriculum 5. Some sort of physical exercise need to be assign to him, by assisting by you people. All the best.

Patience is the key. It took nine months for your tummy muscles to stretch to accommodate a full-term baby. So it makes sense that it can take that long, or longer, to tighten up again. -- The speed and degree of this tightening up depends on a few factors, including:-------- •What shape and size you were before you conceived your baby.-- •How much weight you gained during pregnancy.-- •How active you are.-- •Something you can't do anything about: your genes.-- You may find it easier to shed the weight if: -- •You gained less than 13.6kg and exercised regularly during pregnancy.-- •You breastfeed.-- •This is your first baby.-- NOTE you shouldn't aim to be back to your pre-pregnancy weight until about six months after your baby's birth. -- Breastfeeding may help, especially in the early months after giving birth. If you breastfeed, you'll burn extra calories to make milk – about 500 calories a day. You may lose your pregnancy weight more quickly than mums who bottle-feed their babies. -- Breastfeeding also triggers contractions that help to shrink your womb, making it a workout for your whole body. However, if you eat more than you burn off, you will put on weight, even if you breastfeed.-- It's fine to lose weight while you are breastfeeding. Your body is very efficient at making milk, and losing up to 1kg a week shouldn't affect the amount of milk you make. -- However, if you have a newborn to look after, you'll need plenty of energy. Trying to lose weight too soon after giving birth may delay your recovery and make you feel even more tired. It’s especially important not to attempt a very low-calorie diet. So try to wait until you've had your postnatal check before start trying to lose weight.-- Eating healthily, combined with gentle exercise, will help you to get in shape. The following general guidelines will help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight: -- •Make time for breakfast.-- •Eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.-- •Include a starchy food such as bread, rice, pasta (preferably wholegrain varieties for added fibre) or potatoes in each meal.-- •Go easy on high-fat and high-sugar foods, such as biscuits and cakes. •Watch your portions at mealtimes and the number and type of snacks you eat between meals.-- There's no right answer about how many calories a day you should have. The amount you need to eat depends on your weight and how active you are. -- Exercise can help to tone stomach muscles and burn calories. If you exercised right up until the end of your pregnancy, you can do some light exercise and stretching from the start.-- If you stopped exercising during your pregnancy or are a newcomer to fitness, it is better to start exercising more slowly. -- Fitness aside, all new mums can begin pelvic floor exercises and work on gently toning up lower tummy muscles as soon as they feel ready. This may help you to get back to your pre-pregnancy shape and help to flatten your tummy.-- When you feel up to it, take your baby out for walks in his pushchair. Getting out and about will help to lift your mood and exercise your body gently. You may find there are pushchair workouts with other new mums in your local park.--

Why it's Important That Your Child's Diet is Calcium-Rich

Diploma in Paediatrics, MD (Physician)
Pediatrician, Gurgaon

Why it's important that your child's diet is calcium-rich

Calcium is an inevitable part of your child's diet. You cannot afford to skip it if you wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle for your child. It is recommended that children between the ages of 9 and 18 should get approximately 1300 milligrams of calcium every day. Calcium-rich diet is important for your child for a number of reasons.

Why calcium?

  • calcium helps in building strong bones and teeth for your child.
  • it is important in order to ensure proper functioning of your child's muscles and nerves.
  • calcium plays a vital role in the release of such hormones and enzymes in your child's body that convert the food he eats into energy.
  • it is also helpful in causing the blood to clot whenever your child gets bruised.
  • since your child is continuously growing, a calcium-rich diet ensures an adequate supply of resources that help him to develop new bones that are healthy and strong.
  • a calcium-rich diet is also essential as far as other bodily functions like muscle contraction, blood vessel constriction and relaxation are concerned.

What does lack of a calcium do to your child's body?

  • lack of calcium can cause bone diseases like osteoporosis in your girl child, thus exposing her to a greater risk of weakened bones and possibility of fractures.
  • if your child is a young kid and his diet lacks calcium or vitamin d, which absorbs calcium, he is exposed to the threats of the bone-softening disease called rickets. It can cause in him bowing of the legs, muscle pain and poor growth.
  • bones are living tissues that change constantly, old bones keep getting replaced by newer ones and a calcium-rich diet aids this procedure. Therefore without an adequate supply of calcium, this process would borrow minerals from existing bones, thus weakening them and exposing them to increased risks of fracture.
  • lack of calcium also increases risks of cardiovascular diseases, damaged gums, high blood pressure, ovarian and breast cancer and several other infirmities in your child in his later years.

Hi, I have a 4 month old girl child. Please suggest how to care for and how to treat for best grow. And suggest any books, literature or tools which help us better. Thanking you.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
To give you a good guidance I need to know the present weight. Weight alone is not the indicator of good health. You can continue to give breast milk and add home made semisolids like raggi porridge, mashed banana and slowly introduce all the homemade foods. You need to be in regular touch with me so that I can personally interact and guide you as this is very interesting part of caring for babies, I like. Ask me privately.

Please stop this medicine. Continue with your iron and calcium supplements. Drink plenty of fluids like water, coconut water, lassi, milk, soups, fresh juices etc to keep yourself hydrated. If this does not relieve your problems, then you would need to get some blood tests like cbc, tsh etc and meet a gynaecologist.

With this little description, I may guess, it may be a fungal infection. Apply candid lotion on. Wait for some days. If scar fades, continue treatment otherwise consult either skin specialist or pediatrician.

Hello, green poop means either extra intake of proteins or exposure to cold. You should avoid cold intake in your dietary regulations & excessive qty of proteins. Its quite normal to poop after each feeding.

When to start food for my 6months daughter and should I feed her other than milk?
At the end of 6 months. Start weaning first with soft semisolid foods like suji ka halwa, bananas, mashed potatoes, slowly in a few weeks add more solid. At the end of 1 year, your child should take 3 big katories of meals, and 2-3 snacks in between. You can also start top milk (cow's milk) over and above breast feeds. Breast feeding should be continued till 2 years.

It is fine as Yakult is a probiotic dairy product made by fermenting a mixture of skimmed milk with a special strain of the bacterium Lactobacillus casei Shirota. Prevent digestive disorders such as diarrhea and constipation. Help build immunity and reduce risk of infections.
