The Stomach Of A 2-year-old Child Gets Bigger And Harder?
Asalamualikumm r nDo I want to ask. My child is 2 years old. My child has since stopped breastfeeding. He became thin but his stomach was bulging and his stomach was hard. He was fussy and liked to hurt his stomach. Already a doctor but said only bloated. But there is still a change in the club, but my child is very thin. Only the stomach is enlarged and hard. What disease it is. And how to treat it
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A child's stomach that is enlarged, hard, and painful can indicate interference with the digestive tract. This condition can be triggered by various factors, including:
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid) Constipation (constipation) Food intolerance or malabsorption Gastroenteritis (digestive infections) Intestinal inflammation Food allergies Benign or malignant tumors of the gastrointestinal tract or other organs in the abdominal cavity Impaired liver, heart, kidney function, etc. Frequently, if not to make children vomit, diarrhea, or prolonged difficulty CHAPTER, this condition is not dangerous. However, given the condition of your child who is getting thinner and often experiencing abdominal pain, we recommend that you check it back to the doctor or pediatrician. It is feared, the disturbance in your child's digestive tract causes not optimal nutritional intake into his body, so that children are vulnerable to experiencing malnutrition. Some examinations, such as x-rays, laboratory tests, ultrasound, and so on may be doctor's advice to you so that the cause of your child's complaints is clear.
Here are some initial suggestions that you should make:
Give children food that is healthy and contains balanced nutritional value Vary the types of food a child every day Give children to eat a little, but often Do not accustom children indiscriminate snacking If the child's stomach feels pain, compress with warm water, do not massage, apply warm oil, give the child comfortable clothes Give children enough to drink Keep the child's environmental conditions so that they are always clean, keep the child from close contact with people who are contagious.
