CONTROL OF ASTHMA
*******************************
Most uncontrolled asthmatics think they are controlled

Two thirds of patients with uncontrolled asthma think that their disease is well under control. Asthmatics on proper medicines can not only live a normal life but also reduce their future complications.

Uncontrolled asthmatics invariably end up with complications related to right heart due to persistent lack of oxygenation in the blood.

Dr Eric van Ganse, of University of Lyon, France, in a study published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, examined 1,048 subjects with inadequate asthma control. When asked how they would rate their asthma control over the past 14 days, over 69 percent considered themselves to be completely or well controlled. Failure to perceive inadequate asthma control was more likely to be found in patients between the ages of 41 and 50 years.

The reasons are:
Most asthmatics fail to perceive their level of disease control and with an uncontrolled state they often feel that their asthma is under control.
In severe asthma, low blood oxygen levels might impair a person’s ability to assess their own breathing difficulty.
The notion of asthma control seems poorly understood by asthmatic patients.
Mild to moderate asthma limits the activities of a person and over a period of time they take that as their normal limits.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Nothing major, in terms of side effects or increased health risks, has been found for taking medications to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD There are no long-term studies assessing these meds in people who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Almost all of the data on stimulants comes from patients who have been diagnosed with narcolepsy -- a genetically based sleep disorder that causes excessive sleepiness and frequent daytime sleep attacks. Narcoleptics take mild stimulants daily to treat their condition, often for decades. There have been no reported problems.Anyone who is concerned about medication safety should remember the risks of non-treatment. Untreated ADD/ADHD adversely affects a person's life in many ways. Those with ADD/ADHD who don’t take medication have a significant increase in auto accidents, drug abuse, unplanned pregnancy, and job loss.They also are more likely to separate and/or divorce compared with those who take medication.

Make sure diagnosis is correct. Neocate is very expensive and may need to be imported. Ask the chemist who imports from uk. Most important, confirm diagnosis.

MD Pediatrics
Pediatrician, Vadodara
Chicken pox is a viral condition for which the treatment is only symptomatic. Take care of the child and give her more fluids, juices from fruits, protein rich diet like milk, eggs etc. Rest. Avoid spicy and oily food. Good amount of seasonal fruits.

Rule out urinary tract infection by getting a urine routine test done. Do not give liquids in evening. Check for any stress factors at school or with friends.

My Grand Son who is 5 years now suffering from Autism for the last 1 year six months. He was doing good in the initial years but developed this problem. Checked medically and no problem as per reports. But his remembrance has come down apart from change in his behaviour. Pl suggest what is to be done?

Pediatrician, Muzaffarnagar
Change in behaviour in child age group is not abnormal. It changes year by year in this age group. For only this reason of change in behaviour, child may not be considered as suffering from Autism. It has many associated features also. It may just a matter of chance that he might be having interest in some other field instead of of learning according to your choice. I suggest to take another opinion about autism.

If the child is feeding that's ok. You will not loose weight due to that. If you have other inconveniences, you may opt to gradually stop it by changing to normal food alone. You can also apply resin extract of Aloe, available with raw plant drug dealers, on the nipple after making a paste with water. It is bitter in taste.

High fever is usually due to viral infection. It takes 3 to 4 days to settle down. Give paracetamol suspension 15mg per kg whenever there is fever which can be repeated once in 4 to 6 hours.

Is the baby bottle fed in which case there is chance for colic. You must feed from cup and spoon. Try giving cyclopam syrup 2.5 ml and see.

These are in fair range and you have to ask details with weight and feeding habits and you can ask personally so that I will see it Ferritin is an ubiquitous intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. The protein is produced by almost all living organisms, including algae, bacteria, higher plants, and animals. In humans, it acts as a buffer against iron deficiency and iron overload.The normal range for blood ferritin is: For men, 24 to 336 nanograms per milliliter (standard units) or 24 to 336 micrograms per liter (international units) For women, 11 to 307 nanograms per milliliter (standard units) or 11 to 307 micrograms per liter (international units)

Tips for helping your child stop thumbsucking:

Praise your child for not sucking.
Children often suck their thumbs when feeling insecure or needing comfort. Focus on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
For an older child, involve him or her in choosing the method of stopping.
Your dentist can offer encouragement to your child and explain what could happen to their teeth if they do not stop sucking.
