Hi my baby 7 months old. She suffering every month loose motion. Please suggest how can control this.

Don't give any medicines if your baby is gaining weight properly. Avoid bottle feeding. Start pomegranate and apple juice in small amount. Frequency of slightly watery stool is not a disease if child is growing well.

Skin colour changes with blood perfusion of skin. So wait and watchbefore true colour comes. Don't use chemical cream and soap.

It had been better if you mention weight and height. some children look lean. If his wt is about 12 kg and ht about 85 cm. you need not worry. Give him home made nutritious diet. Add supplement Vitamin D.

Good morning. it is very difficult to suggest any thing without seeing the local condition of scalp and general condition of baby. this condition of hair may be due to malnutrition particularly of micronutrients and protein. you may add multi vitamins and Iron with rich protein diet. else you may consult skin specialist for any local lesion.

My son is 4 months old. He is taking formula milk from day one. He has a habit of vomiting whenever he takes milk. Offlate the vomiting has increased and on some days he literally vomits everything which he takes in. His weight acc to Doc is okay. He sometimes feels relieved after he vomits. he vomits both milk and curd. Pls advice.

MBBS, MS, MCh
Pediatrician, Navi Mumbai
Vomiting in babies is commonly due to gastric reflux (GERD). You need to consult your doctor and watch for his weight, gr8een or yellow (bile stained) vomiting and respiratory infections ie cough. The reflux usually subsides as babies start assuming erect posture and diet changes to a more solid form.

Afrezza (Insulin Inhalation)

M.B.B.S,C.C.A,D.C.A,AASECT,FPA,AAD,M.I.M.S
General Physician,
Afrezza (Insulin Inhalation)

Afrezza - the only inhaled insulin for diabetes.

Afrezza® is an inhaled human insulin indicated to help improve glycemic control in adults with diabetes mellitus.

 

Afrezza is a rapid-acting, inhaled insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The product consists of a dry formulation of human insulin delivered from a small and portable inhaler. 

Administered at the beginning of a meal, afrezza dissolves rapidly upon inhalation to the lung and delivers insulin quickly to the bloodstream. Peak insulin levels are achieved within 12–15 minutes of administration. Afrezza is available in 4-unit and 8-unit single dose cartridges of insulin powder that can be used, as prescribed by a health care professional, in combination with other diabetes medications to achieve target blood sugar levels. For afrezza doses exceeding 8 units, patients may use a combination of 4 unit and 8 unit cartridges. Other sizes of cartridges are being considered. The disposable inhaler can be used for up to 15 days, should be kept in a clean, dry place with the mouthpiece cover on and may be wiped with a clean, dry cloth if needed.

Limitations of use

Do not use afrezza as a substitute for long-acting insulin; 

Afrezza must be used in combination with long-acting insulin in patients with type 1 diabetes.

Do not use afrezza to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. Afrezza is not recommended in patients who smoke or who have recently stopped smoking.

Important safety information for afrezza

Warning: risk of acute bronchospasm in patients with chronic lung disease

 

Acute bronchospasm has been observed in patients with asthma and COPD using afrezza. Afrezza is contraindicated in patients with chronic lung disease such as asthma or copd. Before initiating afrezza, perform a detailed medical history, physical examination, and spirometry (FEV1) to identify potential lung disease in all patients.

Do not use afrezza if you have problems with your lungs, such as asthma or COPD. Do not use afrezza during a low blood sugar reaction (hypoglycemia). If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in afrezza, do not use afrezza as this may cause a significant and severe allergic reaction.

Worm infestation is related to hygiene. The whole family needs deworming. He should do nail biting or finger sucking. Describe the worms- small or long?

About feeding child: can I feed my 4th month baby cow powdered milk .is it safe, if can pls tell me about dosage.
Yes you can and there is no specific dosage. You make 30 or 60 ml milk and feed with spoon or sipper and not bottle feed. Any waste has to be discarded and not kept for later use .Breast milk has to be continued and formula feed can be given after breast milk only . From 4th month you can give home made semi solids mashed well also

How to build confidence in my daughter which is 6 years old She has scared to do something independently in school or class eg. Show n tell activity She feels insecurity at outside She wants someone to be with her.

P.G.C.C. Pediatric, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
On sundays take her along to a park, leave her there to play independently with other kids, if possible give her a rope for rope skipping, give her almonds soaked overnight with milk, also give cod liver oil pearls 1x3times. If possible keep a small dog as pet and let her play with him.
