My 14 month old son keeps having episodes of shaking, seems to occur when a meal is a bit late or a snack missed is this normal?

My 14 month old son keeps having episodes of shaking, seems to occur when a meal is a bit late or a snack missed is this normal?

Concerns about low: blood sugar? Maybe, but there are other issues to be considered. Behavior associated with frustration. Has he had these episodes when not hungry? How long do they last? Is there any evidence of alteration in alertness, is he developing well? Are his milestones age appropriate. Please feel free to continue discussion online at www.healthtap.com/dr-nnebe. Take care. ...Read more

Hi, My baby is now 1 year old and poops after every meal/drink (almost 5 times a day) the consistency of the poo is normal. Is it normal?

Can be: There is a basic process called the gastrocolic reflex.It is a wave of stimulation that sends a "move on" message to our gut after we take a volume of material into our stomach.The reflex may or may not trigger an emptying, but it is part of normal digestive action. You possibly reduce the frequency of emptying by adding some cereals or bananas to the diet.Plums/prunes/apple juice give more stools ...Read more

68 yr old runs 2 miles a day. Is it normal to have a pulse of 45 after waking in the AM?

68 yr old runs 2 miles a day. Is it normal to have a pulse of 45 after waking in the AM?

Can be normal: That you run 2 miles/day daily suggests that you are in a conditioned state. Heart rates less than 60 bpm are often seen in indivduals who exercise regularly bc their heart is in good shape so to speak. When you awaken, you have been sleeping, your heart rate is low bc you are not exercising, so your heart is smartly working less. As long as your pulse increases when you exercise, no need to worry ...Read more

Is a peak flow of 300 a reason to be concerned in a 58 year old 5 ft 7, normal weight?

Is a peak flow of 300 a reason to be concerned in a 58 year old 5 ft 7, normal weight?

Normal is 370: You are just barely in the green assuming your normal peak flow is 370. A number of assumptions. You probably have some underlying disorder like asthma or COPD causing your peak flow to be lower? Green means that you are ok, yellow range would be from 300 to 185 and below 185 is the red range. Red range, seek medical attention. Yellow range - you should have a plan with your regular physician. ...Read more

Is it normal for a newborn to loose her empirical cord in 8 days?

Is it normal for a newborn to loose her empirical cord  in 8 days?

SEPARATION VARIES: The care of the umbilical cord stump influences the timing of separation. In areas where it is left to dry naturally or occasionally cleaned with rubbing alcohol, it often separates in a week or less. In areas that apply tripple dye as an antiseptic technique, it may delay separation 3 or more wks. International comparison studies show no increase in infections with simple drying over other methods. ...Read more

My newborn's umbilical stump is still attached and he is 1 and a half months. Is this normal?

My newborn's umbilical stump is still attached and he is 1 and a half months. Is this normal?

No: Umbilical cord stumps should separate within 1-2 weeks in normal infants. In some institutions that use the triple dye, a purple antibacterial solution painted on the cord may have delay up to 3-4 wks, but I am concerned if there is further delay or >2wks when using a simple drying method. Some writers site a possible problem with white blood cell function in these kids. Discuss with your dr. ...Read more

What could be the cause of a low grade fever for almost 2 months? (99.4-99.8) my normal temp is around 97.8.

What could be the cause of a low grade fever for almost 2 months? (99.4-99.8) my normal temp is around 97.8.

Temp elevation: We really would not consider this a fever, but it is certainly a change from your baseline. There are a number of possibilities - from a low grade infection, such as sinuses, pelvic, intraoral -to non-infection causes such as low grade inflammation somewhere or metabolic, such as mild hyperthyroid. You need a head to toe exam from both doctor and dentist. Write down anything else unusual recently. ...Read more

Fat pad: Fat pad is the key word. Often the length of the penis is disguised by some baby fat in the area. Don't worry. You will want to bring this up for discussion with your pediatrician at his next checkup. ...Read more
