Deficiency of Iron in Children

PALS, MD, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
Deficiency of Iron in Children

For the growth and development of children, they need an essential nutrient Iron. It helps in the transfer of oxygen from lungs to the body's tissues. Red blood cells contain iron in the hemoglobin. The hemoglobin carries oxygen in the blood to the different parts of the body. Iron has an important role to play in the development of brain and generating energy in a child's body. The lack of sufficient iron in the child's body can lead to anemia, which is a nutritional deficient illness and will require medical attention. When a child suffers from anemia, the lack of oxygen makes a child weak and sick.

There are certain symptoms of Iron deficiency in a child's body. These are:

  1. Infections and weak immune system can make a child suffer from frequent infections.
  2. Lethargy and fatigue is another common symptom of an iron deficient body. Due to deficiency of Iron it is difficult for the body to transport oxygen to cells in the body and hence it unable to generate enough energy levels.
  3. Breathlessness and increased sweating can be a sign that your child may be suffering from iron deficiency.
  4. Pica Children suffering from iron deficiency may find a special taste for non-food substances like chalk, dirt and clay.
  5. Lack of iron in the body hampers the physical growth of a child.

The deficiency of iron in children can be diagnosed through blood tests. Your doctor may recommend supplementing iron content orally or through multivitamin medicines. But the deficiency of Iron in a child's body should be taken care of with absolute urgency.

Proper steps should be taken to prevent the deficiency of Iron in children. Those notable precautions are mentioned below:

  1. Balanced diet: A well balanced diet is always recommended. For older children (within 9-12 years of age), red meat, chicken and fish would suffice as good sources of iron.
  2. Oral iron supplements: Oral iron supplements would be required for children with low weight at birth and who have a deficiency of iron in their daily diet.
  3. Vitamin C: Foods such as strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes help in providing the sufficient iron content when included in daily diets, thus reducing the chances of anemia.

Hi, thank you for your query. You have not mentioned the frequency and colour of the motions. It would be best to consult a doctor and get a stool routine examination done. You can give her plenty of oral fluids in the form of lemonade, butter milk to prevent dehydration. Give her semisolid diet. Wishing your daughter all the best. Regards,

Hello. Firstly, try to stop breastfeeding. It will cause some trouble for few days. Bear it. Next, donot force her to eat. That will make her averse to food. Sit together on a dining table and give her a separate plate and spoon. Serve food and let her enjoy it by herself. It will be messy at times, but enjoy it. If she is hungry, she will eat. You and your family also join together at meals. It will automatically develop her eating habits. Happy parenting Regards

Hi congratulations on becoming a new mom. A new born baby sneezing is not synonymous with cold . They try to clear their nostrils with this reflex . At the same time for the nasal blockade you could put normal saline nasal drops with the name of nasoclear or otrinoz saline drops , one drop 4-6 times in a day in both the nostrils to help the baby clear the nose and feed properly . Keep a humidifier in the room if you can to prevent drying of secretions .

I get bloating in stomach despite eating healthy food.

BHMS
Homeopath,
This usually happens if you take meals after long intervals. Try to take small meals at around 3hrs gap. Go for a investigation LFT in a lab. Homoeopathic medicine Calcarea flour 200 tds can be taken in the meantime. See in the morning if your tongue has a white yellowish coating. Share your LFT report and condition of your tongue to get more accurate prescription.

My baby is one month and 8 days old. He has vomited twice in 4 days at night during feed. I get so scared when the milk comes out of his nose also. What to do when he vomits I literally get chills and do not know what to do while he is vomiting.

Spit up is quite common among the babies. When he vomits just make him turn on either of his side so that he does not aspirate into his lungs and the milk comes out. If your child is gaining weight, there is no fever or other issues, there is nothing to worry about. Make sure you are burping your child about 20 to 30 minutes post feed. Warm regards.

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?

My Doctor have advised me to breastfeed my baby in every 2 hours. But how much time should I allow my baby per feeding?
Current consensus is breast feeding on demand. So if the baby is hungry he or she will cry. There is no fixed time needed per feed. If he or she is full then they will stop sucking. Also it is best to alternate between breasts every time.

Fever can occur in a newborn because of high atmospheric temperature which can be tackled by increasing the number of feeds. If the baby is inactive and refuses to take feeds you must show to your pediatrician.

If it is stomach pain the baby may pull on the abdomen and try to lie on abdomen and you have to understand that babies often cry when they are hungry or napkin is wet / when they feel to pass urine and motion and crying by infants is always not due to pain as most mothers think. Next, if you give bottle feed you have to stop and burp well after each breastfeed and for gas in stomach you can give Colicaid drops which is herbal and safe.
