Fever: make sure that you are giving her the right dose for her age and weight, and right timing, if that's not working she needs to be seen for uncontrollable fever or other symptoms she might have, wish you all wellness

Persistent fever: A fever that is persistently high and not responding to medication must be investigated for the cause. Suggest you take her to your family practitioner or to an emergency room. Also, beware of overdosing on paracetamol as both Stilpane and Panado both contain paracetamol. Correct dosing for her age and weight is important.

Can fevers cause brain trauma and damage?

Dr. Sharon Gilliland

No: The typical fevers of childhood illnesses do not cause brain trauma and damage. If the fever is caused by an infection of the brain (meningitis or encephalitis), the infection can cause damage but not the fever. Fevers from heat stroke (in the 107 degree range or more) may cause brain damage but these are not typical fevers of childhood. They result from exposure to extreme heat.

Depends: Fever is a symptom and by itself may not need treatment. It is the underlying reason for the fever that is important. Fever in children less than 2-3 months and in very ill acting infants should be evaluated by someone familiar with children's health care. When treating fever Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen are the common medications used in the country. Care should be used not to use too much.

Treat the fever: Febrile seizures rarely are dangerous to the child if managed well. More risk is the illness and the child's overall health. Medication can be given at onset to stop the seizure. Daily medication is no longer recommended.

Protein: Being a vegetarian is not a problem in pregnancy as long as they are not carboterians. Good vegetarians should have good proteins from legumes, lentils, beans, nuts/seeds, avocados, tofu/tempeh, setan multiple times per day, 7-9 servings of fruits/veggies and whole grains. You only need to eat an additionally 250-300cal/day in pregnancy for the baby to grow!

Two good sources of additional information are drmcdougall.com and nutritionfacts.org. Both cite lots of research on the benefits of a plant-based diet. Nurtitionfacts.org has information on many health conditions, including pregnancy.
