My child is 17 months old, he has got a vomiting problem. Even if he' s got a normal fever, he vomits several times a day. Even in coughing, he vomits several times a day. In a simple problem like crying, irritation, normal fever, teething problem, runny nose, he vomits several times a day. We diagnose him and medicine works but after few days, again same problem. What may be the reason? how to diagnose him better? is there any problem with his intestines? please advice.

Pediatrician, Pune
If there is frequent vomiting since birth / early infancy, as you have described he may be having gastroesophageal reflux, if his weight gain is not appropriate for his age ~8-10 kg, he may need evaluation for his recurrent vomiting, a milk scan which detects gastroesophageal reflux, usg abdomen may be the initial investigations to be done to find his cause of recurrent vomiting

Hello doctor. I have a healthy three month old baby girl. 3 days a go a relative of mine who only saw her for a minute kissed her on her cheek the same person is now diagnosed with meningitis should I be worried she got infected? There was no saliva when he kissed her.

Kissing in the cheek once is unlikely to infect your baby with the germ. Sneezing. Cough and prolonged contact usually transmit the organism. But still there is a remote possibility of transmission of the infection. So you monitor the baby any sign of infection. The same organism may cause other disease also.

My child is normally very friendly but has been getting very aggressive of late. He bites, at times hits & throws things on the floor. We have recently appointed a nanny & he mostly seems happy with her but gets extremely agitated at times throwing tantrums. He also teething & I am trying to wean him to bottle.

This is known as temper tantrums. Don't tolerate. Never beat child. Divert attention. As age advancing they will forget. Don't boast or taking a proud of it when you are sharing his attitude. This is emotional black mailing.

My daughter is 14 months old. She had undergone surgery for not passing her first stool due to meconium ileus. I had came to know that meconium ileus will be due to cystic fibrosis. Please inform me about the symptoms of cystic fibrosis and other reasons for having meconium ileus.

Meconium ileus (mi) is a condition where the content of the baby's bowel (meconium) is extremely sticky and causes the bowel to be blocked at birth. In most cases the bowel itself is complete and intact but it is just the inside that is blocked. In some cases there has been a twist of the bowel before birth, which has caused the bowel to be blind ending (an atresia). Most babies with meconium ileus (90%) have cystic fibrosis (cf) and it is this that has caused the sticky meconium. Meconium ileus is a rare condition affecting only 1 in 25, 000 babies. For further doubts and regular advice on child rearing as your family doctor you can ask personally.

My daughter is 11 months old. She can't sleep without breastfeed. N whenever she wakes up. What is right for her? Shall I avoid n how?

MBBS, MD
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Yes,its correct age to reduce frequency of breast feeds.ideally you should give breast feed s three times ie eight hours interval.in between child will need almost sixty to eighty grams of Charles as porridge in three intervals. Please feed child as per age in months to develop correct changeover from breast to semisolid meals. Three months old should be breastfeed at three hry.but six month old should be given after 4-6 hrly.and add thin watery cereal soup two times a day.

Parents must be truthful to their children and must fulfill any promise made to them.For example you may take your child to the doctor for vaccination,tell him that he would be vaccinated and it is very important to prevent the disease .one injection will prevent many injections.

Hello lybrate-user, you have not mentioned frequency of motins/ day but its normal for baby's to pass motions while taking feed /just after feeding. If baby is passing urine adequatly, he is active & playful, there is no fever & gaining weight, then I think you should not worry.

It is nice that you strongly wish to breastfeed him. For first 7 days or so the milk produced is known as colostrum which is yellow coloured ,small in quantity &high in antibody content. But it is sufficient to meet the needs of baby. Pl give powdered milk as per directions written on the can if at all it has to be given. Pl give cup or katori ¬ bottle. GOVT OF INDIA guidelines recommend exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months of life. The best stimulus for milk production is frequent sucking day &night. Have balanced diet & be confident. Have loving thoughts for your baby. Keep him in direct skin to skin contact. Regards&best wishes.

Any child diagnosed with epilepsy needs proper medication. Precautions, like no late nights regular nutritious diet and exercise will help. You must not miss the medication. For a ketogenic diet can be started only after a metabolic work up of the child is done.

Role of Homeopathy In Diabetes

Diabetes or diabetes mellitus is referred to as a group of disorders that are characterized by a high blood sugar level. Diabetes mellitus occurs when the secretion of insulin (a pancreatic hormone responsible for converting the sugar from consumed foods into energy) is insufficient or the body cells do not properly respond to insulin. Insufficient secretion of insulin causes glucose formation in the bloodstream and mixes with the urine.

The psychological factors responsible for Diabetes Mellitus. In majority (not all), this disease originates with some recent stress in life. This disease is an epidemic in late thirties till fifties. In this age, a person is productive in his profession and most of the time there are job or financial issues that play a very vital role in generating stress and hence Diabetes.

Mostly, in my practice patients reported, before developing Diabetes, a recent financial loss or strain, love disappointment, a betrayal, or fear of loosing a job etc., sedentary habits, diet and genetic factors are secondary. Homeopathy keep such things in account before prescribing and in many cases Diabetes is irreversible. Thers is a vast field of diabetic complications where Homeopathy has a lot to offer. One of them is diabetic neuropathy. For example pain in soles, nerves, lack of energy, sexual dysfunction, mood disorders, diabetic ulcer etc.

Homeopathy For Diabetes

Homeopathic treatment can help improve the general health of a person with diabetes:

First is when the blood sugar level is very high, the priority is to control it and there are homeopathic remedies that could reduce the sugar.

Homeopathy regards health as a state of balancing the equilibrium of the life force. Whatever treatment is taken it’s always advisable to be in regular touch with the doctor and keep sharing the health status with the doctor. The homeopathic preparations useful for diabetes are as follows:

  1. Phosphoric acid: Useful remedy for diabetes with the symptoms of recurrent physical or mental exhaustion, loss of memory and numbness in the feet.

  2. Abroma Augusta: This homeopathic preparation is useful for diabetics who show the symptoms of polyuria, an increased sensation of hunger and weakness in the muscles.

  3. Syzygium Jambolanum: Useful in reducing the blood sugar level quickly and effectively. This homeopathic preparation is also useful to cure diabetics with the symptoms of polyuria, increased sensation of thirst and long-term ulcers.

  4. Gymnema Sylvestre: This Homeopathic preparation acts as a useful remedy for diabetics who are experiencing the symptoms of weight loss with a severe lack in energy levels.

  5. Uranium Nitricum: This homeopathic preparation is a useful cure for diabetes with the symptoms of depression, nausea, irregular urination, severe pain in the back, delayed menstrual periods in women, significant pain in the head and dry skin. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Cough, sneezing and fever are all symptoms of flu. If she has breathing problem made out by poor activity, chest moving up and down, she has to be seen by a doctor. Otherwise give her paracetamol syrup 5 ml and lots of fluids.
