General Physician,
There are some medicines. But try making her pee just before going to bed and wake up in between to make her pass urine. Do not give any fluids 2 hours before bedtime.

What is erythro blastis fetalis? How does it affect a baby? What are the preventive measures?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is erythro blastis fetalis? How does it affect a baby? What are the preventive measures?
A severe hemolytic disease of a fetus or newborn infant caused by the production of maternal antibodies against the fetal red blood cells, usually involving Rh incompatibility between the mother and fetus.The shot is administered again at least 72 hours after birth if the baby is Rh positive. This prevents adverse reactions for the mother if any of the baby's placenta remains in the womb. If a baby experiences erythroblastosis fetalis in the womb, they may be given intrauterine blood transfusions to reduce anemia.After a baby is born, further blood transfusions may be necessary. Giving the baby fluids intravenously can improve low blood pressure. The baby may also need temporary breathing support from a ventilator or mechanical breathing machine. Babies born with erythroblastosis fetalis should be monitored for at least three to four months for signs of anemia. They may require additional blood transfusions. However, if proper prenatal care and postpartum care are delivered, the baby should not experience long-term complications

Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your query. Baby's stools colour may vary. Green color stools are normal if there is no mucus, foul smelling, blood or increased stools with watery consistency. There is no restrictions on food for lactating mothers unless there is any specific food allergy in mother. In addition to mother milk, you should start mashed, semisolid complimentary feeds after 6 months of age. Hope I have answered your question.

But see that they are completetly liquid form til 7months. Continue withbreast feeding. You can use powder milk like lactogen, enfamil, similac instead ofmilk. Do not start with cows milk.

If it is a hernia then surgery is the only treatment. You should get him operated soon before he develops any complications.

At six months you have to start all homemade foods one by one and when 1 year old he should eat with you at your meal timings. To suggest a diet I need to where you are form and the foods you make at home.In brief, all home made foods can be given.

An 8-12 months old baby should be made to eat diced fruits, cooked and green vegetables, yoghurt, potatoes, cereal and eggs, since they are all healthy foods rich in various vitamins and minerals.

It may be colicky abdominal pain or hunger. If he refuses to feed you have to burp properly. Avoid bottle feed and also give Colicaid drops which will relieve pain and gas

If stool is watery and fairly in large quantity, maintain her hydration and electrolytes by giving ORS so long she likes and in between plain water. Continue feeding. Get in touch with pediatrician. Medicine to be given depends on cause of Loose motion.

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.

Causes

Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.

Treatment

Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.

Prevention

Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

My daughter is just two years old. She never wants to eat anything. We always have to force her to take food. Our local child specialist has advised us not to force her, she will eat whenever she will be hungry. We did that for almost two days. But she never wanted to eat in those two days. We are very worried. Please help us.

Your doctor has rightly advise not to force feed. If baby is normal, there is no need to force for feeding. even don't ask repeatedly for feed. it is reasonable to ask only once at meal time. leave her to choose item of her choice whenever n what ever she wants.

It may not be umblical cord which falls in about 10 days. It must be umblical stump which may ooze serous. Leave stump as such keep it open and clean. Take care scab formed over it, is not removed.
