Treatment For Infectious Problems In Children?
Night . I want to ask .. My child drinks strongly but why even more thin? Was there the same effect as her lung infection several months ago being admitted to the hospital diagnosed with a lung infection?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Infection is indeed a major factor when parents find it difficult for children to gain weight. Infectious conditions especially those that are chronic (such as pulmonary tuberculosis) will cause the calories in from food to run out to fight chronic infections, so that no food reserves are stored in the form of fat or muscle.
In such conditions, in addition to infection must be handled appropriately and to complete, children's food intake must also be calculated. Children should be given a high intake of calories and high in protein to support their growth.
Foods high in calories can be obtained from foods rich in complex carbohydrates and high in protein from animal and vegetable food sources. Frequency of eating can also be increased from normal and interspersed with healthy snacks.
Control of treatment for infectious problems in children needs to be done especially if the child has drastic weight loss. Infection control is an absolute thing to do coupled with the provision of food intake that is more than usual.
That's all, hope you can help
