Can you recommend any tools that will help me stay motivated to stay on my eating plan? Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

A high-protein diet. Beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts can be good sources of protein. Eat these kinds of foods in the morning and for after-school snacks. It may help improve concentration and possibly make ADHD medications work for longer. Fewer simple carbohydrates. Cut down on how many of these you eat: candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins. More complex carbohydrates. These are the good guys. Load up on vegetables and some fruits, including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi. Eat this type of food in the evening and it may help you sleep. More omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these in tuna, salmon, and other cold-water white fish. Walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil are other foods with these in them. You could also take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement.

Bottle Tooth Decay is a serious problem.

Bottle Tooth Decay can happen if babies drink milk, formula, or juice out of bottles over long periods of time.

To avoid it:
Take the bottle away after your baby is done drinking.
Don't put your baby to bed with a bottle.

My baby (3 years old) is not growing since he completed 1st year, his height and weight didn't increase (not a inch) I am very worried about him what should we do please suggest.

Hello lybrate-user, yes it is worth worry that your child is not gaining weight and height. You should go for pediatric check up and moniter your child on groeth chart. There are many causes of it like hypothyroidism, familial short strature, pitutary linked problem etc. All will be cleared once you got regarding test done. Observe mental ansd social development and his learning and understanding skills.

My 4-years old child is very aggressive. He is always breaking something here and there. We are fed up of his behavior. He is excessively active and adamant. How do we teach him manners?

He may be hyperactive child and he needs special care by trained people. You can also hope that as he is only 4 years old he will become normal as he grows up.

This syp is pretty much the same as you have been given earlier. These are viral infection which usually settle in their own. However antibiotics are needed if secondary infection develops as evidenced by fever and toxicity. Continue with mild remedies. If the cough does settle within a few days, see a doc.

Down syndrome is a condition in which a person is born with an extra copy of chromosome 21. People with Down syndrome can have physical problems, as well as intellectual disabilities. Every person born with Down syndrome is different. People with the syndrome may also have other health problems. They may be born with heart disease. They may have dementia. They may have hearing problems and problems with the intestines, eyes, thyroid, and skeleton. The chance of having a baby with Down syndrome increases as a woman gets older. Down syndrome cannot be cured. Early treatment programs can help improve skills. They may include speech, physical, occupational, and/or educational therapy. With support and treatment, many people with Down syndrome live happy, productive lives.

My child 1.5yrs is suffering from high fever 101, fever fades after crocin is given but again the temperature rises. Please suggest.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Continue giving crocin 6-8 hourly for 2-3 days. It is symptomatic medicine and will only work for 5-6 hours after each dose. Specific therapy requires more information. How long fever is there? what are other symptoms so that focus for infection can be thought of? most cases without focus fever comes down in 2-3 days time and is likely to be viral s in most cases. Post detail history for further evaluation.
