Limp, difficult to eat, and often sleep in children can be caused by anemia. This condition can arise due to various factors including:
Bleeding, for example bloody bowel movements, recurrent nosebleeds, post-injury bleeding Red blood cell production, for example due to iron deficiency, folic acid deficiency, disorders of the spinal cord Increased destruction of red blood cells, for example due to sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, hemolytic anemia, and so on. Not only that, children who suffer from anemia can also look pale, develop growth disorders, reddened hair, dry skin, and experience a variety of other complaints.
In addition to anemia, complaints from your child may occur due to other causes, such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), dehydration (lack of fluids), digestive disorders (for example due to poisoning, infections, intolerance, malabsorption), heart problems (for example due to congenital heart disease), other chronic pain (eg tuberculosis, bronchhopneumonia, cancer, intestinal inflammation, kidney disorders), and so on.
Before determining the best management, it needs to be clarified first, what exactly sparked your child's complaints. Therefore, the best step you need to do at this time is, check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician. With physical examination, or assisted also with laboratory tests, Mantoux tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on, of course doctors can identify the right management that needs to be undertaken. For the time being, you should calm yourself first, not be kind. Take the following steps:
Give your child enough to drink If the child has difficulty eating, feed him with small portions, but often. Vary the type of food so that the nutritional adequacy is met. Make food with an attractive taste and appearance so the child wants to eat. Also consider feeding with enough fruit. Create a safe environment for children around, not close to other people who suffer from infectious diseases, lighting and good air circulation. Keep the child away from cigarettes and smoke. Encourage children to actively play, do not introduce to gadgets too. early Do not carelessly provide supplements or drugs to children without doctor's advice. Hope it helps.
