Less likely (& appropriate to symptom duration, intensity, timing, risks) your gallbladder or pancreas may be sick. Best to get checked. ...Read more

Dear Docs: my son has a little belly and his lower ribes stick out a little. He is 4year old and has no problem with health. Why is that?what to take?

From the side, he : looks like a lima bean ? That's normal posture for a pre-schooler, but exaggerated in tots with low muscle tone, so have pediatrician check. Flaring ribs are normal. No treatment needed unless he has low tone & delays in fine &/or gross motor development, then occupational & physical therapy. Use developmental screens on firstsigns.org. or healthychildren.org. No medications are needed. ...Read more
