Q. What happens if you leave appendicitis alone?
I have symptoms of appendicitis, but I don't want to go to the hospital. What should I do? and what could happen?
|A||If you have symptoms of appendicitis you should see a doctor immediately, because the major complication of an untreated appendix is rupture and infection of the entire abdomen, that can lead to generalized sepsis.|
Q. Any ideas about why she leaves some food in her plate.
Thank you for your visit. My daughter is 8 years old and she is a poor eater. She never wants to eat dinner even if it's her favorite dish. And then she picks it and an hour later she says that she feels hungry. She never completes her plate, always leaving a bit, no matter what we feed her. Should she be forced to eat dinner and if she doesn't, have only the dinner to eat later? Any ideas about why she leaves some food in her plate?
|A1||She trusts her mom. The most common reason to be like this is she knows that she will get something to eat later from her dear mom. While she shouldn't be forced to eat, she should learn that her main meal in the evening will be served at the dinner time. |
Some other things that you might do to help deal with your picky eater include:
• Make sure that she isn't eating a big snack after school or filling up on juice, soda, or even milk before dinner.
• Offer her smaller portions so that there isn't as much left over on her plate.
• Don’t offer bribes or rewards for eating.
• Never talk about dieting, calories, and such, especially if she or other family members have problems with being overweight. Instead, talk about eating healthy.
• Consider not offering her anything else to eat if she misses dinner or just offer a small, healthy snack.
Mainly a visit to your Pediatrician to monitor her growth, development and eating habits would also be a good idea. Hug her now!
|A2||Force feeding is a very very last resort for feeding someone who’s about to die of anorexia. It doesn’t sounds like you daughter is in that state. If you fill a plate that doesn’t mean that this is the amount she have to eat. Maybe you put too much? how do you know? If you give her an amount that is bigger then what an 8 year old child should eat- you should be happy that she doesn’t finish the plate. And it’s also o.k. to eat when she is hungry and not when you tell her she is hungry. As long as she doesn’t loose weight- there isn’t any problem.|
Q. What makes me worried that it’s really painful but might not be able to leave all of a sudden.
Doctor diagnosed my son with peanut allergy after some tests. His body generates rashes and these eruptions are painful for him. I thought it big to be eczema as I heard about it, but now it is diagnosed and I am not able to decide how to avoid him of not giving peanuts and to keep him away as he likes them. Once near to me I can try to avoid to some extent, but once away to school or in playing with friends he does eat them regularly. What makes me worried that it’s really painful but might not be able to leave all of a sudden.
|A||My friend’s brother does have the experience of peanut allergy. These peanuts are nutritious, but its allergy is awful. He has a clear understanding of this and avoids eating them. I too have found that he followed strict guidelines for not eating them when it was diagnosed for him. The best thing is to create some other or new foodstuff taste for him which might help him be consumed an alternative for nuts for some times and then provide with peanuts for him to regain his remembrances for the culprit he consumes. It needs to be done under your care for long time till he develops the inhibitions for nuts. You must also remember to memorize some medicine names and symptoms, so, if consumed unknowingly can explain what it is to anyone responsible nearby.|
Q. How can I leave him here and take care of my work? Please help me out.
Hi friends, I met my brother after a year and half and he behaves differently. He is just 8 years old as I am quite busy with my work I admitted him in a very distant boarding school. When I met him he was very happy and I made him to stay with me at least for those days when I am here. I am a security person and I need to travel all over the globe to provide service. The very next of my stay with him, I happened to note a change in his behavior and he gets angry for silly things and becomes very happy after some time. I am shocked with this behavior and strongly doubt whether he suffers from Schizophrenia as my uncle too had that defect. But my friend says it looks like bipolar. How can I leave him here and take care of my work? Please help me out.
|A1||Waylon, I would make sure that you notify the school of what has been going on. If they are spending the time with him when you are away they may have some information for you that you are unaware of. Not only that but I would work on getting him a diagnosis and some treatment. The school can ensure he is getting whatever types of meds and theropy that he needs in your absence. The first step though is getting a diagnosis so the treatment can begin. 8 years old is young but not impossible to develop symptoms, is the school a good school? Is it possible that something tramatic has happened to him there? Is he being bullied? He could be acting out for different reasons as well. Keep all possibilites in mind. I would have him evaluated because there is a history of mental health in the family. Be of support to him at this time he is obviously going through something... I hope all turns out well and things get better soon for both of you.|
|A2||A) I feel sorry for you and your brother. You are on your tough days. My sister is a bipolar. This relates to her completely. Bipolar with psychosis is a stage of bipolar, could be in the depressive stage or the manic stage and can be induced by many factors. i.e. no sleep, drugs and it cause may be environmental also. Whereas with Schizophrenia, psychosis is the constant state. Every psychosis is not schizophrenia. After somatic causes for psychotic symptoms (like hallucinations, delusions) have been excluded, the presence of a mood disorder should be ruled out before a diagnosis of schizophrenia is considered. A longitudinal course that includes depressive, manic, or mixed episodes concurrent with psychotic symptoms is not consistent with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. The prognoses of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder differ, in that schizophrenia is generally less likely to involve a robust response to treatment and a return to previous level of functioning.|
