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.

General Physician,
Need to know more details. Weight, fever, and important if he is bottle fed. Then you must stop bottle feed and give with cup and spoon or from glass. For the time being, give emeset syrup 5 ml and see after half an hour and can repeat if still vomits. Inform afterwards take care.

Soaps for babies have to be mild. Don't use antiseptic/ lightening soaps. Use glycerin based soaps and apply moisturizer twice a day on damp skin. Any oil is good for light gentle massage before bathing the child. For scalp avoid coconut oil in first year.

The baby is safe after OPV too. IVP is a recent trend and the vaccine is running in shortage. In some government setuo it may be available. Don't worry if it is not given.

Hi, Did you ask him about any fear he is having/ hiding? How are his parents and rest of the family member's behavior with him? How teachers and rest of the staff behave with him in school? Try try to find out the cause. For the time being, give him Bakson's Santoninum/ 2 tablets twice a day for 10 days and Kali Phos. 6x/ once daily at night for 4 weeks. There after get back to me for his condition.

How can I increase his weight? He is not ready to eat anything. He likes only oily food like Kathryn chips etc.

How can I increase his weight? He is not ready to eat anything. He likes only oily food like Kathryn chips etc.
As per data given by you, child is grossely undernourished & root cause is obviously under/faulty feeding habits. You have to be strict about it & teach him what is good for his health. Cut down on junk food, excesive sugars. Without any hitch. You should practice what is good for his health & not what child demands.

She is only 12years[approaching] old. But she have already big breast n excessive growth of hair in her genital part. And she tell me that last week she did masturbation. But she is not having periods. Why is this doctor? Did sexual behaviour starts early in 12? She is really behaving very sexually. She watches porn movies. Did that causes this? How can we reduce it? please help

If she has overdeveloped breasts and extra hair growth with hypersexual behavior, then this might well be precocious puberty or Hormonal imbalance. I would sincerely advice you to consult a Endocrinologist and Gynecologist. Investigate her for a hormonal profile thoroughly. In case of persistent behaviour problems in spite of a normal hormonal profile consult me online for medical assistance

Hi, My daughter is 2 years and 10 months old now. She doesn't like to eat any food even sweets or ice cream. She eats only baby food. That also takes 1 hour to finish each time. When she sees any food she starts to cry and then run away. She doesn't want to chew any food we eat. If I force, she will swallow and then vomit. I allowed her hungry for a day. But no use. I tried many tips like decorative food and all. But it didn't help. How can I get her to chew food?

Some children are fussy about eating. You have to check her thyroid by doing TSH and inform me. You patiently keep trying and she will eat in due course. You make eating a pleasurable trick or game for her. YOU tell her weight and as she grows up she will eat as seen in many children.

Some children are late. But, before concluding anything you do her blood cbc, tft and inform me. Meanwhile you try to make her speak, (speech therapy by yourself) and I need her birth & development (like when she turned over and smiles, started telling baa baa) weight at birth and now head circumference and birth history (normal, caesarean and if baby kept in incubator, feed given now) to give a scientific advice. All details and you can remain in touch with me personally to be your private doctor if you wish!

Hello, Your baby can be started with weaning(introduction of solid foods). I would take it as an opportunity to teach a child to slowly develop taste for regular food cooked in Indian household. Do not force her on milk as she will rebel more and will never learn to eat food which is made for rest of the family. Use this opportunity to train her for solid foods.

When a child with ADHD blurts things out or gets out of his seat in class, it's not because he hasn't been taught that these behaviors are wrong. It's because he cannot control his impulses.
The problem is rooted in brain chemistry, not discipline. In fact, overly strict parenting - which may involve punishing a child for things he can't control - can actually make ADHD symptoms worse.
Professional interventions, such as drug therapy, psychotherapy, and behavior modification therapy, are usually required - follow child psychiatry n learn more.

now a days kids prefer lot of junks which leads to deficiency its one. Of them normally calcium defeciency leads to this. Try to give him diet rich in calcium and proper excercises. Calcium rich diet like milk. Cheese. Curd yogurt r rich in calcium and excercise like swimning skiping juumping helps in increasing height. Few medicines accd to child also helps to increase height.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Balls? or white patch? where exactly? if they are movable. They could be lymphnodes. But in 4 month old there is no chance unless he has some infection in the throat or on the skin. You need to give more details. Come to private consultation with all details.
