Reasons Behind Iron Deficiency In Children!

Reasons Behind Iron Deficiency In Children!

Iron deficiency is a common condition in children. It occurs when there is a scarcity of iron in the child's system due to malnutrition. Iron is an extremely important mineral that is required for growth and development in young ones. It is an essential nutrient for formation of Hemoglobin, which transports Oxygen and Carbon dioxide through the bloodstream and it is also essential for the functioning of the muscles. If the child's diet lacks iron then the condition might worsen and turn into anemia.

Children need different levels of iron intake at different ages for proper development of all mental and physical faculties. As the child gets older and reaches the age of puberty, the requirement of iron and other minerals also increases. Deficiency of it causes anemia specific to iron. 

Deficiencies can lead to various nutritional disorders that may cause severe complications.

The primary cause of iron deficiency in children is an improper diet which leads to a lack of nourishment. There are a number of other causes of the problem, some of which are as follows:

  1. Low birth weight
  2. Excessive intake of cow's milk at less than 2 years of age
  3. Feeding exclusively on breastmilk beyond 6 months of age
  4. Lead poisoning
  5. Gastrointestinal disease or infection
  6. Improper diet of the mother during pregnancy
  7. Chronic diarrhea
  8. Infestation of parasites in the digestive system.

If the problem arises due to dietary deficiency, it can be easily solved by making simple modifications to the child's diet plan. If the condition stems from other factors or diseases, the child must be taken to a doctor immediately for a medical diagnosis and remedial treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

I regularly can see some food particles in my baby stool. It happens even when she passes good quality stool. I can see tomatoes, dhaniya leaf, carrots and beans. Is this a problem of digestion? My baby is 2 years 4 months old. She suffers from constipation also.

Don't worry, it is normal. For constipation reduce milk intake, increase roughage in diet and plenty of water. Baby needs proper toilet training so that she makes an attempt to pass stool daily, otherwise it gets hard.

Her ideal weight depends on her growth pattern and her weight and height centiles on growth chart. As long as she is following her weight centile, active and healthy otherwise, you can keep giving the same variety of food you r giving.

You need to talk to him about the benefits of a healthy diet. There are many children's programs available online to educate children about healthy living. If you could make him appreciate its importance ,then he will happily adapt the healthy food. Have patience and go slow. Limit the junk food and introduce healthy food which is made with a tasty flavor at home. Allow him to play outdoors (or any physical activity ). If his cold is severe or recurrent then you can try Homeopathy. You can contact me for a detailed consultation so that a remedy suitable for his constitution can be given.

I'm using sorliv syrup for my 4 months baby as per doctor suggestion per day 2.5ml and 3 times a day,started from past 3 days and doctor asked us to continue for 15 days because he was doing motion once in two days and he was not comfortable.But now I can see water with his motion like a loose motion.So is this safe to continue for 15 days or shall I stop the syrup?

General Physician,
Sorliv syrup is prescribed for the treatment of liver disorders, asthma symptoms in adults, occasional constipation along with several other problems. Sorliv syrup contains the salts sorbitol, tricholine citrate as active ingredients. It is available in syrup form. Intima ipca labs manufactures sorliv syrup. Sorliv syrup is used in the treatment, control, prevention, & improvement of the following diseases, conditions and symptoms: liver disorders asthma symptoms in adults occasional constipation for your 4 month old baby if this was given for loose motion it is better to atop it and also stop bottle feeding if you give. For babies never feed from bottle with nipple and instead feed from a cup with spoon or a sipper. Breast milk is the best milk for babies. If you stop bottle feed itself the loose motion will stop and as a probiotic give enuff 10 mg sachets dissolved in a little water twice a day and breast milk and then contact me.

If the hands are very short she need to be examined. This may be just a fear and she may grow up with time. It is more reassuring to show a doctor.

My baby is 6 month old and I have started solid to her. How many time I should give her food in a day.

My baby is 6 month old and I have started solid to her. How many time I should give her food in a day.
Hi lybrate-user, thank you for your query. After 6 months, complimentary feeds to be started in addition to breast milk. To start, give one semisolid feed in a day and gradually increase to 2 feeds in a day over 10 to 14 days. So during 6-8 months, 2-3 feeds in a day and during 9-12 months, 3-4 feeds of complimentary feeds can be given. Give mashed feeds. Hope I have answered your concerns.
