There is no medicine known to increase brest milk production.It is controlled by a complex mechanism of touch & pressure of breast leading to chain of harmones production resulting in breast milk secretion.In short it is demand & supply mechanism,more a child sucks more he gets Exclusive.Breast feed your child at least for first5-6 months.You can express milk if child is unable to take due to any reason to ensure constant supply.

It seems your kid is having allergic cough so it's better to avoid any thing with artificial colours, flavours. All those candies have colours and avoid jelly/jelly filled chocolates. For any fracture in kid treatment is positioning of bone in proper place so new new bone is formed in continuity.

My son has a problem that he doesn't like to eat home made food. He has no interest in eating any sort of home made food. He sits for long long hours hungry without eating anything. please help me wat should I do? Should I give him any tonic?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

No tonic will guide him to eat homemade food, if he iss in a habit of eating outside food-------------actually just try to prepare food at your house according to hiss choice, only this is the alternative right now and once he startss liking home made recepies, he will slowly leave outside food------ let him sit hungry for hours, actually due to your love nd affection, now he is out of your control and now the need of the hour is to treat him psychologically, rather than medicinally or by scolding him---------------

No role of any appetite stimulants. His weight is appropriate for his age. So do not worry if child does not eat if he is alert active playful and responsive. Cough and cold is very common in this age. Home made remedies like Tulsi ka karha honey are enough in most cases unless your child is having high grade fever with rapid respiration persistent vomiting then consult pediatrician. For constipation avoid milk and milk products noodes maida give plenty of vegetables fruits juice. Best wishes Arun shah Muzaffarpur.

DIABETIC and Your SMILE

DIABETIC and Your SMILE

Did you know that 29.1 million people living in the united states have diabetes? that's 9.3% of the population. Approximately 1.7 million new cases are diagnosed each year and 8.1 million people living with diabetes don't even know they have it. 

Diabetes affects your body's ability to process sugar. All food you eat is turned to sugar and used for energy. In type I diabetes, the body doesn't make enough insulin, a hormone that carries sugar from your blood to the cells that need it for energy. In type ii diabetes, the body stops responding to insulin. Both cases result in high blood sugar levels, which can cause problems with your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other parts of your body.

So what does this have to do with that smile of yours and how can you protect it? first, it's important to understand the signs of diabetes and the roles they play in your mouth.

The symptoms of untreated diabetes

The warning signs of diabetes affect every part of your body. After a blood test, you may be told by a doctor that you have high blood sugar. You may feel excessively thirsty or have to urinate a lot. Weight loss and fatigue are other common symptoms. Diabetes can also cause you to lose consciousness if your blood sugar falls too low. 

If diabetes is left untreated, it can take a toll on your mouth as well. Here's how:

You may have less saliva, causing your mouth to feel dry. (dry mouth is also caused by certain medications.)
Because saliva protects your teeth, you're also at a higher risk of cavities.
Gums may become inflamed and bleed often (gingivitis).
You may have problems tasting food.
You may experience delayed wound healing.
You may be susceptible to infections inside of your mouth.
For children with diabetes, teeth may erupt at an age earlier than is typical.
Why people with diabetes are more prone to gum disease

All people have more tiny bacteria living in their mouth now than there are people on this planet. If they make their home in your gums, you can end up with periodontal disease. This chronic, inflammatory disease can destroy your gums, all the tissues holding your teeth and even your bones.

Periodontal disease is the most common dental disease affecting those living with diabetes, affecting nearly 22% of those diagnosed. Especially with increasing age, poor blood sugar control increases the risk for gum problems. In fact, people with diabetes are at a higher risk for gum problems because of poor blood sugar control. As with all infections, serious gum disease may cause blood sugar to rise. This makes diabetes harder to control because you are more susceptible to infections and are less able to fight the bacteria invading the gums.

How your dentist can help you fight diabetes

Regular dental visits are important. Research suggests that treating gum disease can help improve blood sugar control in patients living with diabetes, decreasing the progression of the disease. Practicing good oral hygiene and having professional deep cleanings done by your dentist can help to lower your hba1c. (this is a lab test that shows your average level of blood sugar over the previous three months. It indicates how well you are controlling your diabetes.)

Your diabetes dental health action plan

Teamwork involving self-care and professional care from your dentist will be beneficial in keeping your healthy smile as well as potentially slowing progression of diabetes. Here are five oral health-related things you can do to for optimal wellness:

Control your blood sugar levels. Use your diabetes-related medications as directed, changing to a healthier diet and even exercising more can help. Good blood sugar control will also help your body fight any bacterial or fungal infections in your mouth and help relieve dry mouth caused by diabetes.
Avoid smoking.
If you wear any type of denture, clean it each day.
Make sure to brush twice a day with a soft brush and floss correctly daily.
See your dentist for regular checkup.

My six years old son has been passing stool in clothes in day as well as in night. We have consulted more than doctors but no result. Please tell us the possible cause of this?

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
It is called encopresis and usually due to psychological problem. Find out any stress inducing events in the family or school. It will resolve slowly. Get an mri spine to rule out a neurological problem which sometimes may cause that.

If she is active and has no other complaint like feeling week headache or poor in study than nothing to worry, active children generally don't gain much weight, still you want her to be fat feed her lot of rice kheer and potato and make her sit in front of tv whole day, she will gain lot of weight.

Pooping in infant is common, soon after feeds baby needs burping and also feed on proper position. It will subsides by its own by 6 months to one year. If it looks more than normal than consult with local paediatrician.
