What is Rickets? How to Prevent Your CHILD From the Disorder?

What is Rickets? How to Prevent Your CHILD From the Disorder?

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 weight increasing don't start any thing solid now may increase milk at a time. Think of solid things after one month.

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your qjery. Generally birth weight doubles by 6 months of age and trebles by 1 year of age. For example, if a baby born with 3 kg weight, baby will be 6 kgs at 6 months and 9 kgs by 1 year of age. Give her breast feeds and continue to give complimentary feeds 3 to 4 times in a day. Make feeds calorie rich by adding a few drops of ghee or edible oil. Hope I have answered your concerns. Regards, Dr. E venkata ramana.

How to increase breast milk in quantity for baby? Any medicine or any natural remedy.

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
Many people ask this question in a mistaken belief that the milk production in the mother is less. Most often it is not true. If the baby is passing plenty of urine, 5-6 semi formed stools per day and if the baby is gaining weight, the breast milk is sufficient. However to ensure good supply of milk, the mother must feed the baby often to ensure the" let down reflex" which happens only when the baby suckles. Drink plenty of water and take frequent small nutritious meals.(extra calories 300-500, in form of ghee, butter are helpful. Stop worrying. Stress reduces milk production. Have sufficient privacy, nurse the baby in peace. Methi dana, zeera plenty of dal and vegetables and fruits will do the trick. Enjoy the feeding, don't treat it as a burden. Take help from an experienced person.

My daughter is 2 months. She takes NAN PRO 1.Sometimes I feel that she is having gastric problem. We give her gripe water. Now my query is that is it safe to give gripe water or is there any other good medicine available. And my second query is regarding fever of my child. If we feel that her body temp is high should we give her paracetamol drops or is there any other good medicine. Please advice.

You cannot use paracetamol for evrytiem when you feel body temperature is high. It can be given only if ther is infection and fever .NAN and all other formula feeds should be given only in cup with a spoon and not in bottle feed

My 6 years old son is highly active. And don't concentrate. All time lost in his own imagination. Please suggest?

Try taking him in a park and make him run. And make him listen to music. This things will help him concentrate and his hyperactivity will also reduce eventually. You can use homoeopathy treatment for your son as they are safe and can help reduce hyperactivity.
