You may give paracetamol about 60 mg but I suggest to consult pediatrician to ascertain cause of fever and accordingly treatment since small babies are more prone to become serious.

World Diabetes Day Special - 15 Ways to Effectively Manage Your Diabetes

World Diabetes Day Special - 15 Ways to Effectively Manage Your Diabetes

World Diabetes Day is celebrated on 14 November, each year. It is the primary global awareness campaign for diabetes as it is one of the major problem of today's time. With an upsurge in the number of people suffering from diabetes, the sole aim of celebrating this day is to create awareness about this disease and suggest preventive measures to those who have not acquired it and provide tips to manage it to those who are living with it. 

So, here are 15 health tips that will help you manage your diabetes effectively: 

  1. You should quit smoking as it is very bad for diabetic patients. Smoking leads to narrowing of the blood vessels, which reduces proper blood circulation.
  2. You have to track your exercise patterns. Take actual notes about your exercise habits and make necessary changes based on the record.
  3. Eliminate fast food from your diet. Avoid eating out at restaurants and avoid taking extra salt, sugar and calories. You should cook your meals at home with light ingredients and less salt and sugar.
  4. Diabetes severely affects your vision and blindness is and blindness is a serious problem which may occur. Hence, get your vision checked regularly to prevent retinopathy.
  5. Avoid having quick coffees. Fancy cups of coffee are full of sugar, which lead to glucose and insulin fluctuation in your body.
  6. You must stay active and fit. This is the most important lifestyle choice for any diabetic patient. By exercising, you will maintain a good shape, your metabolism gets boosted and the insulin production increases as well.
  7. You should use a pedometer to calculate how much you are moving each day while exercising.
  8. Try to consume fruits and vegetables. By trying new vegetables and fruits, you will be able to keep your blood sugar under check and see how your body reacts.
  9. You must increase your amount of fibre intake. Fibre is important for diabetic patients, which keeps the digestive processes to run smoothly. Your cholesterol level decreases and blood sugar levels may reduce if you take enough fibre.
  10. You should chew gum as it keeps your mouth busy. It makes you crave for less food.
  11. You should eat on smaller plates. This is a psychological trick which makes you consume less amount of food and your sugar and calorie levels are maintained.
  12. Before taking any food item or eating out, gather information about them. Learn about diabetes friendly food options at restaurants and check which products you should avoid buying from the market.
  13. You should get your blood sugar levels checked regularly. You should check it several times a day to learn how your body responds to food.
  14. Circulation problems may cause issues with your feet, which may lead to a lack of sensation, cuts and scrapes. Check your feet regularly to notice changes.
  15. Instead of having 2,3 large meals a day, you should take several small meals throughout the day. This will keep your body’s digestive processes active thereby increasing insulin sensitivity.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician,
Don't give antibiotics to your child frequently. Some viral illness like cold cough fever may subside without use of antibiotics. There is no role of antibiotics in viral illness. By using this you are losing your money and your child?s health. Because judicious use of antibiotics in viral illness may cause antibiotics ressistance and ultimately immunity of your child affects. Be wise.

If your milk supply is less then increase the suckling number. More the baby suckle your nipple more the milk will come. But with this you need proper homeopathic treatment. Because in homoeopathy there are soo mny medicines to increase the milk flow. Soo you can contact me asap. Through lybrate in private conversation.

U should monitor temperature. May be warm due to teething. Paracetamol syrup is to be given only if temp is above 100 fahrenheit.

I am working woman. I have a 3-month old son. I will be starting work in a week. Until now, I am exclusively breastfeeding my child but will need to introduce formula feed when I start going to work. Please suggest the best formula for my baby.

Pediatrician, Pune
Breast milk is the best, there is no better alternative, if your work place is close by you can take a break every 3 - 4 hrs and feed the baby in between, if the work place has facilities to keep babies, that woul also be better, if these options are not available, you can express the breast milk before going to work, that can be stored in fridge and can be fed to the baby when you are away, expressing breast milk will you to continue secreting and forming more milk required for the baby atleast till 1 year of age, breast milk is the best for baby, second alternatives would be lactogen/ nan1

First avoid all soaps and lotions. Avoid friction by not scrubbing it while bathing. Avoid powder, kazal on the face. Use plain water for cleansing. If irritation then calamine lotion can be applied.

SIr ,for a three and half year child who does not have any skin problem, no specific soap is recommended. You could use any soft soap. Brands such as pigeon are very expensive and need not be used.

At 2 months you would have given only one dose of triple DPT Hib (painless )so you can easily continue with the whole cell pertussis or DwPT now. It will not disturb the schedule

My girl child is 03 years old. She does not eat happily. We force eat her with very difficultly . Therefore she is very thin as compare to same age group child .What should I do?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Faridabad
If your baby is not suffering from any disease then here are some tips. Most important is STOP FORCED FEEDING. Basic principal is six meals a day, three large and three small, feed size is three to four fist size, allow to finish in twenty minutes eating time, if not finished then withdraw the left over, do nothing in between the meals, love your baby a lot and express it too but food only during feeding time.The food should be rich in fats and protins example eggs, kheer, khidi with ghee, stuffed paratha, halwa, upma, shakes, grind nuts etc.FOOD SHOULD BE PLEASURE NOT PUNISHMENT.

Hi sir i my baby is 2 years old, she is having sever constipation problem. She always crying while doing poop. Please suggest me what to do ,which food /fruit is helpful , doctor suggest me EVQ Q but it doesnt work ,

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health (DCH), Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatrician, Delhi
Constipation is children is problem you can handle by modifying diet. Give extra water to the baby, add fibre by giving fruits such as papaya,mosmbi, banana. Also focus on giving more home food such as dal rice, khichdi, roti etc rather than milk and dairy products. check out the anal area. If there is a fissure, you need to see a doc to get it treated. Dont make the baby anxious about the potty. Potty training takes time.

My daughter is 10 years old n my son is 4 years old. How to teach both of them to share the things with each other and not fight with each other. Thanx.

MD - Paediatrics
Pediatrician, Kolkata
Children learn from the things they see. So you and the other family members start sharing things in front of them. You can sit with both of them separately and try to teach them sharing. Never lose temper in front of them. Be patient but firm to your decision.
