Patient discussion about refusion

Q. My toddler is refusing to take the formula diet. My toddler is refusing to take the formula diet. Doctor has prescribed him iron drops. But why is the need and could he be iron deficient at this age?

A. His iron supplements would be incomplete and so is the requirement of iron drops being prescribed by the doctor. My daughter was also found to be iron deficient and the doctor suggested me to add diets such as oats, beans like soy beans, cereals, green vegetables like spinach, seafood, egg yolks, iron fortified breads, dry fruits. Iron plays a vital role in the formation of blood and its deficiency can lead to anemia. Early stage child anemia is harmful for the child. Do not forget to give oranges and citric fruits because it helps in the absorption of iron from foods taken.

Q. How to get a bipolar person to get treatment, if refuses to carry this condition? My girlfriend’s mom told me once by phone that my girlfriend was bipolar. I started doing a little research and learned it is difficult to live with this sickness. I don't want to brake up but my safety is fading out now

A. Unless you know for definite that your gf has actually been properly diagnosed for this disorder, you can't tell her to get treatment for a disorder that her mum thinks she may supposedly have. I think you need to have a big long chat with your girlfriend about this and show her your encouragement and support, rather than fear about your safety. She needs someone like you to understand what it is like, and it seems that her bipolar is not an extreme case, otherwise you would have known right away with her behavior. It's caused my having major highs and lows, and if she has been properly diagnosed, encourage her to get the treatment as you care for her and want her to get better!
