I think you mean recurrent or frequent urination and it is suggestive of urinary tract infection. You need to do urine culture and antibiotic sensitivity test.

Am eighteen year old. My weight is 86kg. But I don't look that much fat. Two days back I had a free checkup. They told me that I have too much of fat contents in me. And they even told me that. My body is functioning like 38year man. After hearing this it made me very much disappointed. Am just 18 but why is it like this. I don't look to much fat also. Is there any problem in me. Or it is bone weight. Can it be over come. And some of my friends suggest me to smoke, they told me that smoking can make a thin. Is it true. If it is then kindly tell me about smoking too. Please. I am disappointed. Y is it like this.

Symptoms That Indiacates Iron Deficiency in a Child's Body

Symptoms That Indiacates Iron Deficiency in a Child's Body

For the growth and development of children, they need an essential nutrient; Iron. It helps in the transfer of oxygen from lungs to the body's tissues. Red blood cells contain iron in the hemoglobin. The hemoglobin carries oxygen in the blood to the different parts of the body. Iron has an important role to play in the development of brain and generating energy in a child's body. The lack of sufficient iron in the child's body can lead to anemia, which is a nutritional deficient illness and will require medical attention. When a child suffers from anemia, the lack of oxygen makes a child weak and sick.

There are certain symptoms of Iron deficiency in a child's body. These are:

  1. Infections and weak immune system can make a child suffer from frequent infections.
  2. Lethargy and fatigue is another common symptom of an iron deficient body. Due to deficiency of Iron it is difficult for the body to transport oxygen to cells in the body and hence it unable to generate enough energy levels.
  3. Breathlessness and increased sweating can be a sign that your child may be suffering from iron deficiency.
  4. Pica Children suffering from iron deficiency may find a special taste for non-food substances like chalk, dirt and clay.
  5. Lack of iron in the body hampers the physical growth of a child.

The deficiency of iron in children can be diagnosed through blood tests. Your doctor may recommend supplementing iron content orally or through multivitamin medicines. But the deficiency of Iron in a child's body should be taken care of with absolute urgency.

Proper steps should be taken to prevent the deficiency of Iron in children. Those notable precautions are mentioned below:

  1. Balanced diet: A well balanced diet is always recommended. For older children (within 9-12 years of age), red meat, chicken and fish would suffice as good sources of iron.
  2. Oral iron supplements: Oral iron supplements would be required for children with low weight at birth and who have a deficiency of iron in their daily diet.
  3. Vitamin C: Foods such as strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes help in providing the sufficient iron content when included in daily diets, thus reducing the chances of anemia.
  4. In vegetarian diet green vegetables, jaggery, dates etc. are rich sources of iron.

Breastfeeding Can Reduce Your Risk Of Getting Cancer

MD - Radiothrapy, MBBS
Oncologist, Pune

Breastfeeding for more than 1 year will reduce risk of getting breast and ovarian cancer

Breastfeeding for more duration increases number of missed periods which will reduce the level of estrogen hormone in the body. 

Research has shown that increased exposure to estrogen hormone is associated with more chance of getting breast cancer

Breastfeeding also increases immunity in infant and reduces chances of obesity in child and thereby reducing the chances of cancer in child in future.

You are supposed to train your baby to take food like you do. It is like training baby to learn a langauge. Any way give her home made food after every 2 hours. Never force food or accept any undue demand to take food. Have patience child will demand or even snatch food when hunger is intence. Hunger is a natural reflex & no medicine is required to activate it.

Do I wash my nipples, when I use nip Care cream before breast feeding? Pls answer soon.

Hello, Yes you should. Any moisturising cream contains harmful chemical ingredients which are only for external use and can cause health hazards specially in case of new born if ingested in excess.
