Causes And Ways To Deal With An Enlarged Abdomen In Children?
I want to ask, I have seen a 6-year-old child with an enlarged stomach, what is that disease? What are the signs of having the disease? Then how to overcome it how?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
An enlarged abdomen of a child can be caused by many things, including:
children are fat or obese
there is intestinal obstruction
an enlarged liver (liver) or spleen due to various causes
fluid buildup in the stomach (ascites)
malnutrition / kwashiorkor
the presence of tumors or cancer in organs in the abdominal cavity
Management for each of the above conditions can vary. We recommend that if this happens to your child, immediately take it to the pediatrician for further examination. If it happens to people around you, advise parents to have their child checked by a pediatrician.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
