My son is 9 months old. I used to give him 3 meals per day. But since few days he has stopped taking any solid and wants only breast feed. Wgt 8.5 kg?
Reply: If he is otherwise not sick, then most likely teething could be the reason when gums are swollen and eating solids causes discomfort. Give him puree foods for the time being, use teethers and keep them clean, tylenol (acetaminophen) as needed but if necessary. Keep an eye on any other symptoms causing this issue. ...Read more

Is it fine to add fish in the daily meals after Vp shunt surgery or should it be a strict vegan diet? Patient is also on chemo for breast cancer
Whoa: Whoever has told you that a person who has had a ventriculoperitoneal shunt needs to eat a vegan diet was simply lying to you. The decision to become a vegan is a moral choice, not a medical one, and a vegan who does not know EXACTLY what they are doing will ruin his/her health. If a health care provider has urged a chemotherapy patient to "go vegan" as Rx, report it to the licensing board. ...Read more

I always feel pain in my chest. Ifeel lethargic. I m putting on weight despite consuming non fatty meals. Plz advise.

Pain in chest definitely demands a doctor's visit and evaluation asap. ...Read more
