Patient discussion about audit

Q. I would like to hear from you. I'm searching help for my son, who is suffering from Autism. I was wondering if any of the parents of children with Autism have noticed any changes when they change their children eating habits. If so, have you noticed any significance in the improvement of your child's behavior? I would like to hear from you.

A. I have a sweet little daughter who has autism. When I diagnosed her with autism, I put her on diet and trust me that I have noticed a significant change. I suggest you to give her home brand of safe food that will help more.

Q. How do I make him listen? Hi, My kid is so irrespective and just we have diagnosed him with ADHD. He is just seven years old and makes fun of his friends. It seems that they do not like him. Also if he does not like anyone, he seems to be uncontrollable. He never listens to me. How do I make him listen? I am getting stressed due to this.

A. Yes he needs control, but within your parameters. For instance you offer two of meal choices, ask him which one he would like. Both are nutritious and within your financial and time budget,(By the way a very nutitious varied diet is good avoiding junk food, artificial ingredients etc). Use the same principal with other things. He needs a structured environment, a regular routine and he needs to know what to expect. Its a good thing to have a family conference on a daily basis, if needed one in the morning to dicuss the days agenda and one at night to dicuss concerns and the ne next day. these need only be a few minutes. If the plans change he needs to know why. This involves alot of talking and input on your part. He also needs to learn cause and affect, or what his choice of what to do, or not to do; will effect what the out come will be. Whenever a request is made, the reason for it must be given in a calm manner. Always praise positive behavior, not that silly "good job",

Q. what is this immediate hearing loss???? I woke up yesterday and didnt hear anything, only very high tones in my left ear. I also feel nausious and dizzy. please tell me someone has experienced it and it goes away in a few days!!! I'm very scared to loose my hearing forever, it's been 24 hours that I'm almost deaf. thank you

A. Acute hearing loss can be caused due to an infection of the middle ear or internal ear that can cause dizziness nausea fever and vomiting as well. You should see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
