At present there is no cure for any of the mucopolysaccharide diseases.Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT)has been approved by the FDA for several of the MPS diseases, but ERT has not been shown to be effective in MPS III. Bone marrow transplants have been tried on individuals with MPS III, but with disappointing results. Gene therapy, chaperone therapy and intrathecal enzyme therapy are a few of the treatments for MPS III where research is ongoing

My 6 years girl getting breast pain one side and they are bit big in size compared to other, please guide me whether I have see Gynecology or pediatrics. Appreciate your early reply.

Appearance of breast is called Thelarche . If no other signs of puberty are there like hair in groin or armpits, then it is not considered as precocious puberty, and there is no need to do anything. Advice to stop pressing, rubbing or massage.

It seems that you feel the situation is out of your control and you are looking for the means to change your son's behavior. Little children are like a sponge, they absorb things and learn front us and environment around them. There are main two reason that children misbehave. 1. They want your attention and love. 2. Just like any human they too are wired to assert power. When they misbehave and gets attention they feel powerful and continue to behave that way. Right now I do understand that you get frustrated with his behavior and out of your own habit you might show some kind of aggression by shouting or sometimes even slapping. Abusing someone is not a solution to any problem rather it worsens the situation. Through our behavior we are planting seeds in out child's mind. For you to change this situation you need to be very patient and calm. Once your behavior and your attitude will change his behavior will also change. Also when we lable our child as stubborn jiddi shy or noughty. We are feedimg their mind woth these ideas. A d they will try to be best at that. Now kids do not do all these things knowingly. They have no idea what else to do so they respond to your stimulus and behavior. Also it is very normal for parents to feel overwhelmed and frustrated and dispute k owing so many things it is difficult to respond ideally in a heated situation. I am sure this could be one of the major reason for frustration as well. What you need is a support from someone who understand you and also know how to guide you through the situation step by step so that you will lean and change the way you are responding now. Once this happens you will get back the control and things will turn into posotive direction. I would suggest you to either call me or consult someone in your city and seek help. If you work with someone on weekly basis it will help you make some changes. If you decide to enter into 3 to 4 month committed relationship, I do have some tools and techniques which you will be able to learn and apply immediately. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Diabetes Proves Deadly for Smokers

Diabetes Proves Deadly for Smokers

While it is well known that smoking causes lung cancer, heavy smokers with diabetes are also at increased risk of death from causes other than lung cancer, according to a study being presented next week at the annual meeting of the radiological society of north america (rsna).

Diabetes is a chronic illness in which there are high levels of glucose in the blood. More than 29 million people in the u. S. Have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released by the centers for disease control and prevention. One in four people with diabetes doesn't know he or she has it. Having diabetes can also put people at risk for numerous other health complications.

To determine the extent to which diabetes is associated with deaths from lung cancer, other cancers, and other causes among heavy smokers, researchers examined the risk for all-cause mortality among people with and without diabetes within the national lung screening trial (nlst), a massive, multicenter trial that compared low-dose helical ct with chest x-ray for early detection of lung cancer in current and former heavy smokers.

" in our study, we found a statistically significant link between diabetes and all-cause deaths, non-lung cancer deaths and lung cancer deaths in women" said kavita garg, m. D, professor of radiology from the university of colorado -- denver.

For the study, Dr. Garg and colleagues looked at data from 53, 454 participants in the nlst and identified 5, 174 participants who reported having diabetes at screening.

They conducted an analysis of the relative risk for overall mortality, lung cancer mortality, and non-lung cancer mortality associated with diabetes, adjusting for age, gender, body mass index (bmi), and pack-years of smoking. Over the course of the study, there were 3, 936 total deaths, including 1, 021 from lung cancer and 826 from cancers not of the lung.

Participants with diabetes tended to be older, reported more pack-years of smoking, and had a higher bmi than those without diabetes. There were 650 deaths (12.6 percent of patients) among participants with diabetes and 3, 286 deaths (6.8 percent of patients) among participants without diabetes.

" we found that diabetes doubles the risk for all-cause mortality and non-lung cancer mortality among heavy smokers" Dr. Garg said" we also found that women with diabetes have an increased risk of lung-cancer mortality, but did not find the same effect in men"

The researchers continue to analyze data in an effort to better understand the underlying cause. In the meantime, Dr. Garg emphasizes the importance of taking control of diabetes and undergoing lung cancer screening if you're a smoker.

" patients have to take care of their diabetes to maximize the benefit of ct screening for lung cancer" she said" it truly makes a magnitude of difference in mortality risk"

My daughter is 7 years old. She often gets fever. It starts suddenly, and increases up to 103-104F. She is vaccinated properly .Now we are using homeopathic medicines. It gives better results to her when compared to allopathy. But we are unable to control the temperature. It gradually increases up to 103f and reduces up to 100. 8f at early morning and again raises upto 103 by evenings. This condition remains for at least 3 days .later the temperature goes down to below normal and she becomes very weak .We consulted many doctors. All blood test reports are normal. But there is no improvement . She is studying 2nd STD and she is very active and intelligent too. What do I do for her? How do I know the actual reason behind her health problem? Please suggest me.

Probably your daughter is suffering from repeated viral infections. It is most common type of infection in children. Most common causes are. 1-exposure to cold surroundings. 2-eating or drinking cold items. 3-coming in contact with patients suffering from contagious (spreading) diseases 4-being in crowds 5-physical weakness due to malnutrition (protein, carbohydrate or iron deficiency). Give her high protein diet like daal, eggs, chana, milk etc. Give her green leafy vegetables, jaggery groundnut chikki, dried black grapes, beet root to raise the haemoglobin. 5 pieces of almonds, 2 of walnut and 1anjeer will be very beneficial to her.

Hi, my daughter is suffering with dehydration pbm she is 2 years old. What can she eat.
Most important is to correct her dehydration which is an alarming situation and treat its reason. If you mean that child is not gaining wt and is suffering from mal or under nutrition, diet shall depend on degree and nature of malnourishment. This require detail information to suggest for which you may come back privately.

My grand daughter age 4 years after coming from school at 1300 hours and after lunch goes to sleep and doesn't wake up. Inspite of our all efforts she doesn't wake up. She is not taking her food and we give her milk. In morning she wakes up at 0530 and is very fresh and active and goes to school happily. Please advise what is the reason for this.

I presume, she takes home food for her lunch and then she doesn't take dinner instead you give her milk and then she continues to sleep to get up early morning fresh and active. If so try not giving milk, she will wake up with hunger. After normal dinner (solid food) engage her in some sort of play or story telling, thus breaking a behavioral pattern. Then she can go to bed around 9 pm and wake up at 6-7 am. This is a behavioral problem and should be tackled like wise by increasing interaction skillfully.
