My baby girl is 8 months old and she is weighing 7.3 kg. Please let me know if her weight is correct.
Her weight is fine for her age. But most important thing is that she should regularly gain weight as per expected. This you can get in the vaccination card where you will find a growth chart. You can plot her weight against her age at regular intervals like say 1 to 3 monthly and see whether she is gaining weight normally or not.

First of all, if you bottle feed, stop bottle and feed from a cup or glass/ sipper (not nipple & bottle) and of course breast milk to continue. Bottle fed babies usually show this kind of stools. Then inform me.

Hi lybrate-user Some children have delayed speech. If the child understands you and expresses herself using some words and expressions, I think there is nothing to worry as yet. Spend more personal time with the child. Enrol her in playschool or take her to park where she can meet and spend time with children of her age. Instead of letting her watch videos on YouTube, you should speak and sing a lot to your child. Encourage the child to repeat rhymes after you. Read out story books to the child. Spending too much time in front of screens is definitely a big No. You can contact me personally for further advice. Take care.

My 13 year old son is overweight-67kg. Though he has cut down on junk and follows a strict diet his weight has not reduced. It has been so for the past 3 years. In fact, he was an underweight child till he was 3 years and later on till 10 years had no issues with body weight. Is there some problem I have to take care of?

Hye. You need to understand that a child has to be treated differently than an adult. The child of 13 years needs nutrition for growth and development. Strict diets are not at all recommended for a child in his teens. Concentrate on healthy, sensible eating and indulge in some sport that he likes. Gradually fitness and health has to happen. You have to let it come naturally to your child, you can't enforce health the way you know is right. A child's needs are very different. Be patient and let the health take its course.

Hello everybody. I'm Dr Pulkit Nandwani. I'm a consultant gynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon here at Saroj Medical Institute Rohini. Today, I would like to share some information with you about fibroids.

Fibroids are becoming increasingly common these days. They usually occur in the age group of 30 to 40 years of women but can occur at any age group usually at the age group of 30 to 40years.

Now what are fibroids?

Fibroids are usually noncancerous just an overgrowth of the muscle tissue of the uterus. Fibroids are also called myomas or leiomyomas. Now these fibroids can be located anywhere in the uterus. They can be either in the muscle tissue of the uterus or even in the ovaries or from a stem hanging inside the uterus or out of the wall of the uterus by hanging by a stem. The size and location number of fibroids vary a lot and according to them the symptoms depend.

Now what are the symptoms of fibroids?

The symptoms of fibroids depend on where the situation where the fibroid is located, how big it is and how many numbers of fibroids are located. The symptoms can be they usually cause the change in menstruation. The patient usually experiences heavy bleeding with painful cramping and now instead of monthly bleeds. The bleed may come at irregular intervals and at least twice or thrice in a month. There can be pain during bleeding. Other than the painful bleeding, the fibroid can also result in various symptoms. Because of the size and the weight of the fibroid, it might press on the urinary bladder and the patient might experience frequency of urination even pain during urination. Same if it's at the back of the uterus, it might press on the anus and cause painful deification obtained while passing motions. Because of the heavy bleeding patient might land up with low hemoglobin and having anemia and generalized symptoms of anemia like the fatigue, the weakness, loss of strength, loss of stamina, all these are the  symptoms of fibroids. Just a pain in the lower abdomen can also be the manifestation of fibroid.

Fibroid can also cause infertility. Patient might find difficulty in conceiving or there are chances if the patient conceives if the fibroid is located inside the lining of the uterus it might cause increased chances of miscarriages. There might be abortions then but the good thing is that fibroids rarely cause cancer. It might twist on itself, cause severe pain and but it rarely causes cancer and grows over a period of time. It slowly grows over a period of time, sudden growth is a matter of danger sign.

Now, what are the treatments available for fibroid?

Fibroid if it is asymptomatic the patient is comfortable it was just the routine diagnosis, need not require any treatment at all but usually fibroids cause bleeding problems. So the most common treatment that we employ is starting the patient on medical treatment, a number of hormonal pills come which regulate the hormones inside the body of the uterus and limits the blood flow of the patient and the patient remains comfortable. If medical treatment is either not successful or by the location of the fibroid we already know that medical treatment will not work as in case if the fibroid is coming inside the lining of the uterus. In those cases the fibroid has to be removed surgically for the fibroid is usually done. If it is coming inside the lining of the uterus even if it is very small or a big fibroid is obstructing, the uterus lining causing pressure symptoms. In that case surgery has to be done. Now for surgery also there are two to three types of surgery which can be done.

  • If so patient is young, she has to conceive again and family is not completed, we try to remove only the fibroid. It is known as myomectomy.
  • If the patient is elderly age family is completed, it caues a lot of problproblemshere are multiple fibroids, in that case, the modality of treatment is a one-stop treatment in which we prefer to remove the whole uterus in which case it is known as hysterectomy.
  • Regularly total laparoscopic hysterectomy fully by laparoscopy is done routinely at the hospital at Saroj Medical Institute for fibroids.

So this is much for fibroid for today. If you have any query you can contact me at lybrate. I am Dr. Pulkit Nandwani or you can even take a consultation appointment at Saroj Medical Institute Rohini, Delhi.

Thank you.

Even though very rare, milk protein allergy can also happen in exclusively breastfeed babies. Consider cutting down all dairy products in your diet for few weeks to a month - milk, yogurt, ghee or butter, beef, biscuits, or anything that can contain bovine or milk products, and also common allergens such as eggs, wheat, peanuts - and see how it goes.

Hello, if fever is the only concern then we can wait for 1_2 more days as may be viral but if continue for long time after that then see your paediatrician to rule out any bacterial infection or we may need blood tests to look for cause of fever. Also, make a chart of fevers with timings to get the track. Take care.

This happens to many children up to the age of 5-6 years. He like many others may have hyper active airways. Brochodialator like ashalin in inhaled form may help.

Thanks for asking The leg pain mostly because of weakness due to prolonged fever. During fever days child's eating will be compramised. Give more liquids and fruit juices and continue typhoid medication as prescribed for of total 7 days even fever comedown and use one vitamin syrup that will give strength to your child. Even After following this if your child complaining of fever and leg pain then show to your near doctor for detailed examination I hope this will clear your queries. Still if you have queries you can write me here again Thanks.
