Solution To Overcome Thin Children From Toddlers To Teenagers?
Met morning … my child from toddler to adolescence, why is his body thin even though he eats a lot … Back when he was a toddler, my child had problems with foggy lungs, what is the solution for asking for a doctor’s advice?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, how exactly is your child's age now? How much weight and height? How about the diet? Are there any other complaints that he experienced besides his body which is always thin?
Skinny in children can be purely caused by genetic factors (heredity). However, if it is said that your child's lungs are cloudy, this condition could indicate inflammation in the lungs, for example due to tuberculosis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and many other possible conditions. Chronic inflammation in the lungs can also make a child's body thin. In addition, children can also be thin due to other factors, such as food picking, inadequate nutritional intake, chronic diarrhea or vomiting, chronic infections, thyroid gland disorders, malignancy, and many other possible factors.
To be clear, we recommend that you consult your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Mantoux test, blood test, ultrasound, or maybe other supporting tests can be done by the doctor besides checking your child's physical condition directly. That way, the potential for diseases that cause your child to be thin can be identified and given the right treatment.
For now, our initial solution:
Give your child a balanced nutritional value, not only a lot, but also a variety, not that
Also give children healthy snacks, such as juices, smoothies, cut fruit
Give the child enough to drink
Do not make it a habit of hawking children or overeating instant food and preservatives
Accompany children to live a healthy lifestyle in their daily lives
Keep the environment around the child always clean, away from other people suffering from infectious infections
Hope this helps ...
