Dear Yumnam, I am doing lot of work on Stem cells which are currently being used for blood disorders. Stem cells are also being used in Spinal cord injury, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke , Head injury etc only in the form of clinical trials. Stem cells have no role in curing Sensory Neural hearing loss as of today. Best wishes, Prof. Yashbir Dewan

I want to know related to child growth and if growth is stunted at the age of fifteen. whom should I consult?

DNB (Pediatrics), Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
At the age of 15 yrs as per your information if correct this girl is a case of short stature because 137.2 cm for this girl falls below 3 sd for the age and sex. You have noticed late so without wasting time you should consult any pediatric endocrinologist as early as possible. As wt is also less so there can be some systemic illness which is not obvious but chronic.

Are you embarrassed by gas problems?

Home remedy for GAS .

As problem may be very annoying at times. Generally gas is formed in the stomach due to numerous reasons such as

Excessive alcohol intake
Consuming very spicy food
Chewing the food improperly
Too much of anxiety and stress
Intestinal malfunction
Eating sauces and condiments frequently and in large quantities
Digestive disorders

SOLUTION :

Exercise regularly
Do not consume poultry and dairy products such as eggs, milk etc.
Take time and chew your food properly. Don?t be in haste, as chewing properly helps you in digesting the food quickly
Avoid using straw while drinking as you may swallow more air while using straws
Never sleep immediately after eating your meal
Do not drink aerated drinks

If baby is active, taking exclusive breast milk, wt is about 6 kg and motion is not watery, I do not think he requires any medicine other wise in 5 days, he could have become sever dehydrated requiring hospitalization. Keep him on exclusive breast feed. In any case it is advisable to consult pediatrician.

Most likely he had food or water contamination may be due to outside food, water and heat. Now you can give him electoral water and sporolac tablet and soft diet like curd rice dal water coconut water etc. Always try to avoid outside food and water.

Tips on Root Canal Treatments

Root Canal


I’m Dr Mehul Chawla, practising, in Gurgaon. I’m practising dentistry since 2011. Since inception, I was always into two things, first was root canal treatments and second is dental implants. Both these fields are closer to each other. Root canals help to save the tooth the implants help to replace the tooth that is spoilt. So let me just tell you briefly about root canal treatments. So root canals, a root canal is a procedure of aeronautic and causative department of dentistry. So it is a procedure to save a tooth for a long time that has been decayed due to the past neglect of the person.

In root canals, they clean the canals of the tooth with an instrument so that to make sure there is no microorganism remaining. Finally, the root of the canal is filled with dental filling material. So let's come to implant now. See implants are not very recent procedures. They are in the market for the past 30 years now but these days they are very famous in India now because the implant cost has drastically decreased.

Implants is basically a procedure to replace one or number of teeth with better than before fixed prosthesis. Also, the implants are more promising replacement options than others because it gives a success rate of more than 98%. So replacement of one tooth to the number of teeth is actually possible with the help of dental implants.

So thanks for watching me. If you wish to see me again or wish to know more about dentistry, just put on the Lybrate. You can email me, you can call me. You can go online and do the video chatting with me.

I will be very happy to share my knowledge with you.

Thanks.

Usually there is no reason not producing enough milk for infant except not inclination of mother to feed baby. Encourage mother to feed baby and simultaneously find out other reasons consulting obstetrician n to treat accordingly. No milk is better than mother's milk.

My baby is 5 months old, he is having continuous loose motion from yesterday and now my baby is crying a lot. Can he have worms in his intestine. Early my mother in law gave him banana, curd, mango shake, orange juice.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
If he is bottle fed stop bottle immediately and give breast milk and homemade semi solids. You can give cyclopam drops 7 drops which will reduce crying if due ti to colic pain. You need constant support in rearing abby. You can ask privately in this site. Regards.

Hello lybrate-user, I can see you have given meds for wheeze, hopefully after paediatrician advise. First we have to understand that cough is a protective reflux of the body. Second, the medicine will depend on what causes the cough, whether it's viral uri or allergic type. If it's viral and if the child is otherwise active, playing and eating well, nothing needs to be done other than observation. If there's wheeze the meds you mentioned will help. If the cough is persistent and disturbing child's activity and sleep, then I would suggest to show the child to a peds.

You should start with liquid diet like juice dal ka pani etc, when baby is in good mood. Than switch to semisolid feed.
