My Child Eats A Lot Until His Cheeks And Stomach Are Large, Does He Have Cushing’s Syndrome?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask why my child suddenly had a big appetite after taking the medicine given by the pediatrician. that i wonder at 2 weeks cheek u0026amp; His stomach is big but his hands are not. One of the drugs my child is taking is Trizela medicine.
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Looks like you mean the drug with the trisela brand. The drug contains. Namely, antihistamine or hypo-allergenic drugs,
which works by inhibiting the action of histamine. Histamine is a substance produced by the body during an allergic reaction that causes itching, dilation of blood vessels, edema and glandular hypersecretion. Used in cases of colds, coughs and allergic dermatitis (rashes on the skin due to allergic reactions). Every drug has side effects, including the medicine you mentioned. The side effects are drowsiness, dizziness, weakness, dry mouth, nasal irritation, nausea, sore throat, stomach ache and diarrhea.
Meanwhile, cushing's syndrome is a collection of symptoms that occur due to high levels of the hormone cortisol in the blood. The hormone cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands located at the top of the kidneys. Functioning in various ways, such as increasing blood pressure, increasing blood sugar levels, reducing inflammation and regulating mood. High levels of blood cortisol can be caused by adrenal gland tumors, pituitary gland tumors or using corticosteroid drugs (such as long-term high-dose prednisone). Prednisone is often used to treat autoimmune diseases (such as lupus and arthritis) as well as post-organ transplantation. This disease will be characterized by a pile of body fat, especially on the shoulder and face.
Therefore, it is not possible for your child to experience Cushing's syndrome due to the drug you mentioned. To be able to find out the cause of complaints experienced by your child, you should consult with a pediatrician. Doctors who meet directly with your child, will be able to do the checks needed to find out the disease. The doctor will examine the child's abdominal circumference to see its suitability for gender, age and weight.
Thus hopefully useful.
