The Cause Of No Appetite In Patients With Umbilical Hernia 5 Years?
Good night ….. is the 5th child with an umbilical hernia indeed having no appetite … what should I do ……
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Children without appetite can be caused by various things, including:
Having thrush, teeth growing, or other complaints in the oral cavity
Too often given snacks, so it does not desire to eat home-cooked food
Children get bored with these types of food, or don't see eating as fun
The presence of certain diseases, such as hernias that have clamped the intestine so that food can not pass
In the case of your child, we suggest that he first check with the pediatric surgeon to be sure of the severity of the hernia and determine the follow-up, whether he needs surgery or not. This is important because if lazy eating is directly related to the history of hernias, as long as the hernia is not handled, lazy eating will also continue to occur. The point is to first know the main cause he is lazy to eat, handled as well as possible, then think of ways or tricks to increase children's appetite.
What is clear, do not force your child to eat, whatever if he had to vomit food, or looks very tortured. If he already seems very tired, do not hesitate to take him to the nearest hospital emergency room and if his child's surgeon recommends surgery, you should not delay because the complications can be fatal. So, hopefully answering your question.
