Increased Appetite After Typhus?
Ass, I want to ask my child 1 month I have typhus, thank God it’s healthy now and it’s not hot, the doctor says it’s healthy, now the appetite is excessive and the stomach is like that, but the chapter runs smoothly every day 1-2kl because I eat 1hr more than 5x isn’t that okay?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. As parents, of course we are happy to see that our children are easy to eat and fat because it often symbolizes prosperity, happiness and health. Children are also often given the freedom to be safe on the grounds that they are still in their infancy. That is not entirely wrong, but whatever the conditions, excessive is not good.
What is the excess standard, of course it can be different for each person, but the point is a general assessment. In general, people only eat 3x a day with 2x snacks. But if up to 5 times a large meal, especially to more than 1 serving, then it is indeed excessive. This, if left unchecked, can make the child obese or overweight, which can lead to an increased risk of the child experiencing various diseases since young.
So because children still don't know about it, we as parents must control it. Do not continue to give the food he asked for, especially if it is not healthy food such as fatty foods, fried foods, fast food and snacks. If he feels hungry, increase the portion of food in the form of vegetables, fruits, and cereals, which can make someone full faster. Get used to also eat together with children so that children know the normal portion that should be consumed.
If you find it difficult, consult your doctor to be assessed as well, actually whether your child is still need to gain weight, is enough and must maintain or has started to overdo it. The doctor will find out later if there are certain conditions that affect his appetite and determine his treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
