Which means you need to add another nebulizer regime and get detailed evaluation why it is not improving. There would be some trigger in home or in habits which is making cough to stay more like sweet cold food. Preservatives containing food like ketchup vinegar etc. Yellow fruits. Citrus food. Dust smoke powder soft toys. Playing in dust etc. Regards.

My baby is 3.5 months old. She is having low weight 4.7 kg. She is not taking mothers milk. How to increase her weight.

She is definitely not gaining wt properly. Encourage mother and put baby on breast for breast feeding which is "Amrit" for up to 6 months of age. If baby is not sick and is active, there is no reason for baby not taking mother's milk. No substitute is even equivalent to mother'milk. There is no other way to increase wt of baby except milk at this age.

Take a pinch of turmeric powder and black pepper powder to a glass of warm desi cow milk A2milk. Drink before going to bed. It helps to relieve congestion, reduces pain and swelling. Add few drops of lemon juice and a pinch of pepper powder to a teaspoon of honey. Give this mixture to your child at least twice a day. Honey has strong anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which reduce the size of enlarged adenoids. For more you can connect via Lybrate.

You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.

My grand son completed 4 months but sleeps for 5 hours in night and during day two to three hour. D. Whether it is ok.

MBBS, DNB (Pediatrics)
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Ideally at this age, he should be sleeping much longer. But there are individual variations and this may well be accepted. Your grandson's history need to be examined in order to comment well.

How to Prevent Your Child from Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

How to Prevent Your Child from Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) is a chronic metabolic disorder that prevents the body from processing sugar or glucose. The disorder causes insufficient production of the hormone Insulin (responsible for regulating sugar into the different parts of your body); or the body's failure to respond to the hormone produced. Although no cure is available for T2DM, there are several ways in which you can help prevent Type 2 diabetes in your child. These are:

1. Get your child to indulge in some physical activity - Spending about 60 minutes of the day on physical activity can help your child to ward off Type 2 diabetes. In terms of screen time, it shouldn't be over 2 hours a day. By doing so, he or she ends up building his or her muscles as well as gets rid of extra fat from the body. An active life would also help your child to maintain an optimal body weight with obesity being a cause of this form of diabetes. Whether it's a sport like swimming, cricket or basketball, or even walking and dancing, physical activity in any form can help in preventing your child from developing Type 2 diabetes.

2. Plan a well-balanced diet for your child - Encouraging your child to have healthy foods and making right food choices can also lower his or her chances of getting this metabolic disorder. Foods high in fiber like whole grain cereals and bread, lentils, fruits, and vegetables should be consumed. Similarly, foods low in trans and saturated fats like lean meat, chicken, yogurt and cheese should be included in your child's diet. Processed foods, as well as sugary drinks, should be no-no when it comes to your child's diet.

3. Adopting proper eating habits - It is not only making the right food choices that are important but eating right as well is vital for preventing the onset of diabetes. Having meals with fix portion sizes is a habit that you need to develop in your child. Ideally, half the plate should be filled with vegetables and fruits; a quarter with lean protein like chicken; and the remaining with whole grain. To accompany the meal, make your child have one cup of no-fat or low-fat milk. Desserts like ice cream and cookies should be allowed only once or twice a week.

My kid is 6 years old. She is very stubborn. When I say not to do something she will deliberately do the same thing. How to handle this situation?

Pediatrician, Tumkur
Some children have a rebel nature especially if pampered or neglected. Some develop such attitude with the arrival of a sibling. Better you take the opinion of a child psychologist.

Dear lybrate-user, as you said your husband is asthmatic, there is a possibility that your daughter might become asthmatic in near future as it runs in families sometimes but that percentage is not that significant enough, what your daughter is having at present probably allergic rhinitis, a component of whole allergy spectrum. Treatment is symptomatic only. Nothing to worry about nebulisation will be helpful, thank you.
