Daughter is in pre-k, constantly coming down with a cold. Will daily vitamins help her be less affected? I know washing hands, etc is very important.

Probably Not, Unless: If she had an explicit vitamin deficiency & the deficient vitamin level(s) were restored, possible. However, bigger issues are more likely human. Child's view key. Leaving home for pre-k & being surrounded by many children & adults she does not know, not sure she can trust, abuse by other children, etc., perceiving being rejected by mother/family, etc. Are all very threatening/challenging issues. ...Read more

Mom has ftd, not bathing easily, sleeping >= 1/2 day, can walk but is inactive; conversations are mostly 1-sided. Roughly what stage dementia is she?

Sounds advanced: There are many different staging "systems." in the moderate phase people need assistance with all activities of daily living and towards the end of this stage someone requires 24 awake supervision for safety. In the severe stage a person can follow 1 step directions and need set up for all activities. In ftd a person develops "apathy" where attention turns inward and one is less engaged outwardly. ...Read more

Is there a genetic disorder that runs in male genes that can be mistaken for adhd? My 4 yr. Son is very hyper, cries alot, and abusive toward some children and me. The ADHD medicine isn't working. Now he has been scratching his face when he gets mad. What

Is there a genetic disorder that runs in male genes that can be mistaken for adhd? My 4 yr. Son is very hyper, cries alot, and abusive toward some children and me. The ADHD medicine isn't working. Now he has been scratching his face when he gets mad. What

ADHD : Adhd can be difficult to diagnose in a 4 year old. His behavior problems may be caused by something else. It sounds like he needs further evaluation to see how he can be helped. Traits similar to those found in adhd can be seen in some of the autistic spectrum disorders that can be more prevalent in males. His unresponsiveness to some medications can give clues as to what may be causing his difficult behavior as well. It's interesting that you have noted that the aggressive behavior is only in the males and during their childhood. I'm glad the traits went away as these boys grew up. Don't give up, but seek further evaluation and have your pediatrician guide you toward the specialists in your area. ...Read more

His treatment team have access to all the medical history, his testing and his physical exam are in the best position to make this call. Because he is the father of a friend of yours- they would not be likely to release info to you. ...Read more
