Are indian kids so small because their moms are vegetarian?

Are indian kids so small because their moms are vegetarian?

No: Size is a matter of perspective. Many would say that american kids are so large because many american children are fed in an unhealthy manner, and because they don't get enough exercise. Overall, across all countries, as sanitation and child nutrition has improved, so has the average adult height increased. A balanced vegetarian diet can produce normal growth in children from any country. ...Read more

Baby breastfeed from vegetarian mom,the same like non vegetarian?or any deficiencies?

Baby breastfeed from vegetarian mom,the same like non vegetarian?or any deficiencies?

Notify ped: I consulted on one baby exclusively breast fed by a vegetarian mom after it was hospitalized for severe anemia. Without proper vitamin supplements to make up for the lack of B12 and or other needed material, this can be a problem. As long as your pedi is aware, they can guide you on supplements and test baby periodically to monitor the issue. ...Read more

If i become a vegetarian will that lower my cholesterol and increase my chances  of not having heart disease like  my mom and grandmom?

YES!!!: Vegetarians do have lower cholesterol & a much lower risk of heart disease, though the lower risk is not necessarily due to lower cholesterol! the real cause of heart disease is inflammation & a vegetarian diet is less inflammatory. There are many other health benefits to a vegetarian diet as well. See http://www.Vegetariantimes.Com/article/why-go-veg-learn-about-becoming-a-vegetarian/. ...Read more

Hi, I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 small children. I eat too much and can't organise my time to live healthier. How can I be more motivated?

Hi, I'm a stay-at-home mom of 2 small children. I eat too much and can't organise my time to live healthier. How can I be more motivated?

Find time for you: When you are caring for small children it can seem impossible to make time for yourself, but it is crucial that you have time for yourself in order to stay motivated and active for your children. Eating right and exercise can really help in dealling with unmotivated feelings. Talk to your doctor about your feelings. You might be depressed and it is so important to get treated. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

See a doctor: It is not clear to me what your anatomy is at this point. As a young woman at an age of 24, I would recommend seeing a gynecologist to discuss your history and decide what if any treatment may be necessary at this point. Let's see what the doctor says about "the hole" so that you can have your concerns alleviated and have a happy and full life moving forward. ...Read more

My mom keeps giving my child small amounts of rip it energy drinks, watered down. I don't want to cause an argument Bc of drink but can this b harmful?

My mom keeps giving my child small amounts of rip it energy drinks, watered down. I don't want to cause an argument Bc of drink but can this b harmful?

Yes it can be: "small amounts" to an adult are NOT small amounts to a child. Energy drinks are primarily caffeine, which can have effects on children's growth, and unknown effects on the rest of their health. Tell your mother to STOP, and if she won't, you have to decide on whether you can allow your child to be with her. A family member or therapist may be needed to mediate this family problem. ...Read more

Is it likely that I've already been exposed to the cold sore virus if my mom has been getting them since I was a small child? Never gotten a sore 33yr

Is it likely that I've already been exposed to the cold sore virus if my mom has been getting them since I was a small child? Never gotten a sore 33yr

Maybe, maybe not: In the US, half of all people your age are infected with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1), the cause of cold sores. Most are caught in childhood from infected playmates, but you could have caught it from your mom. However, if no symptoms, either you don't have it, or if you do, it probably will never cause any problem, not something to worry about. But if concerned, a blood test is available. ...Read more
