This is the time to train your child, otherwise in lately you need to face the consequences like fussy eating and crakiness. Feed your child with family on dinning table, bring a baby feeding chair so she can sit along with other family member, please switch off the tv and mobile while eating. It will take some time, but with regular practice she will develop routine and will start having food.

All About Congenital Hypothyroidism!

All About Congenital Hypothyroidism!

What is congenital hypothyroidism?
Newborn babies who are unable to make enough thyroid hormone have congenital hypothyroidism, meaning they are born with an underactive or absent thyroid gland.  If the condition is not found and treated, children can have mental retardation and growth failure. But the good news is that early diagnosis and proper treatment can prevent these problems. In most cases, the condition is permanent and your child will need lifelong treatment. 

What causes congenital hypothyroidism?
 The most common causes are

  1. An underdeveloped thyroid gland
  2. A thyroid gland that’s not located where it should be (in the neck below the voice box or larynx)  
  3. A missing thyroid gland

 Other possible causes include

  1. Defective production of thyroid hormone (an inherited condition)
  2. Problems with the pituitary gland (located at the base of the brain), which tells the thyroid to make thyroid hormone
  3. Less commonly, a mother’s thyroid disease or medicines taken during pregnancy can cause congenital hypothyroidism.

What are the signs and symptoms of congenital hypothyroidism?

Many babies with congenital hypothyroidism appear normal at birth or for several months after birth.  But others may have these signs and symptoms:

  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • Constipation
  • Poor muscle tone
  • Sluggishness
  • A hoarse cry
  • They might also have
  • Feeding problems
  • A thick, large tongue
  • A puffy-looking face
  • A swollen abdomen, sometimes with “outpouching” of the belly button
  • Large soft spots of the skull

Thyroid hormone deficiency can also occur in older babies or young children, even if test results at birth were normal.

Treatment
Early diagnosis is very important. Most of the effects of hypothyroidism are easy to reverse. For this reason, doctors always ask to get screening for hypothyroidism of your newborn.

Thyroxine is usually given to treat hypothyroidism. Once the child starts taking this medicine, blood tests are regularly done to make sure thyroid hormone levels are in a normal range.

When to Contact a Medical Professional
Call your health care provider if:

  • You feel your infant shows signs or symptoms of hypothyroidism
  • You are pregnant and have been exposed to antithyroid drugs or procedures

Prevention
If a pregnant woman takes radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer, the thyroid gland may be destroyed in the developing fetus. Infants whose mothers have taken such medicines should be observed carefully after birth for signs of hypothyroidism. Also, pregnant women should not avoid iodine-supplemented salt. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Stop all medicines. Give him fibrous diet and good quantity of water. Encourage him to sit in toilet for some time daily or even twice in a day. That may solve problem.

It is an art rather than science. You need to make eating interesting for the child. You can take family meals together with the child and let her see how you are enjoying the meals, when you are feeding the child as well. She will imitate you.

Silver nitrate is the usually given medication for local application in mild burns and scalds. If it's severe it needs systemic antibiotics and local bandage to avoid exposure to the environment.

Hi lybtrate user, it is very common and normal that in first few months babies do not pass motion even for 7 days. Do not worry wait for 2 days but just make sure she is well hydrated (by breastfeeding only.) if she still don't pass the motion let me know.

You have to give all food items in a pleasant manner and make eating a pleasure experience for the child, rather than making the eating process a fighting task. In such cases children will lead to food aversion . Give all foods in his own taste ad the manner he likes . For eg. if he wants egg in omlette form you give it that way and not as boiled egg or any other method
