My daughter 14 years old have been diagnosed with thyroid, TSH value 42. What is the treatment.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
Please take her to a doctor (endocrinologist) for a check up. If required some more tests may be advised. Let the doctor assess her health and start with the treament. You may note that it requires regular follow up. Please ensure that she eats healthy food and be physically active and maintains an ideal weight. Let her learn yoga which can be very beneficial for her healing. Later, you can also add Homeopathy which stimulates the body to respond naturally to bring back normalcy as far as possible. You can contact me for a detailed consultation so that Homeopathic remedies that suit her constitution can be given.

Obesity In Children - Ways To Prevent It!

Obesity In Children - Ways To Prevent It!

Research shows that overweight children have a higher chances of developing chronic health problems such as hypertension, asthma, high cholesterol, and even cancer as they grow up. Apart from these health conditions, being obese can cause severe self-esteem problems as well. In short, obesity in children, more specifically childhood obesity, can affect the overall physical, mental and emotional health of your child.

Here are 5 easy ways to prevent your child from falling into the perils of obesity.

1. Develop healthy eating habits in your child
Encouraging your little ones to develop healthy eating habits is vital for maintaining optimum body weight. Instead of high sugar and high fat foods, a child’s diet should consist of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain foods (such as oats, quinoa and wheat). Proteins such as lean meats, lentils, beans and fish should be included in his/her eating plan as well. Most importantly, serving food in the right portion sizes will ensure your child is getting the right amount of nutrients, while preventing him/her from consuming empty calories. Inculcate these eating habits in them right from the time they are toddlers so that it stays with them as they get older.

2. Make your child avoid calorie-rich foods
Getting your child to avoid fatty, sugary and salty foods can also prevent him from tipping over the weighing scale. Present before your child low sugar and low fat alternatives that he/she would enjoy eating such as apples, bananas, carrots, etc.


3. Encourage your child to pursue physical activity
Try to encourage your child to engage in some form of physical activity for about 60 minutes every day. From brisk walking, swimming, dancing to skipping - your child could opt for any of these physical activities. Having your child lead an active life can see him/her enjoying a number of health benefits like respite from stress, strengthening of his/her bones and muscles and decrease in blood pressure, to name a few.

4. Put a limit on your child’s TV time
When it comes to the time that your child may spend before the TV, computer or other gizmos, it should be not more than half-an-hour per day. Instead, devise fun activities wherein your child as well other members of the family can take part in or ones in which your child does not need a company.

5. Ensure your child gets enough sleep
Lastly, a good night’s rest that lasts about 9-12 hours is vital for optimal weight maintenance. Studies reveal that children who slept for less than the required number of hours were more at risk of being obese. This is because less sleep causes fatigue, leading to a decrease in physical activity and therefore, use of energy. Hence, young kids need up to 8 to 10 hrs sleep but older kids need 6 to 8 hours sleep.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have 4 month old baby please suggest after how much time of consuming 1 can of beer I can breastfeed my baby, help.

B.Sc.(Hons), P.G.Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I have 4 month old baby please suggest after how much time of consuming 1 can of beer I can breastfeed my baby, help.
Hi, Mothers of newborns , should be extra careful about drinking, as the baby's brain is still developing and very vulnerable, and may hinder their motor development . "If a mom is going to drink alcohol, she should wait at least three to four hours until breastfeeding the baby. The amount of alcohol in breast milk is very similar to the amount in the woman's blood and alcohol is a fast-acting drug. So it is better for a nursing mother to avoid or limit the consumption of alcohol only on some occasion.
