Detailed Answer:
Thanks for consulting and your trust in HCM means a lot to me as a Physician.
I have completely reviewed your health query, and can well realize all those concerns. Being your physician, I will take care all of them today and will extend my expertise to solve the problems.

I am sure you are talking about the blood pressure monitoring and the diastolic one (the lower number) is 61. Yes this is a bit low and definitely you will feel dizzy and lightheaded with this reading. So, I suggest you to start taking Pedialyte Oral Rehydration Solution right away. It will take the blood pressure up to the normal levels. Keep an eye on your readings too but when you start feeling OK it means it is back to normal.

Keep taking healthy and balanced diet and plenty of fluids like freshly made fruit juices.

Hi, my 10 month old baby threw up once on Friday. It looked as if she threw up her formula milk. Yesterday, she didn t throw up but she did have gas and her stool was a bit like an avocado green with some white patches that looked like when milk is spoiled. We took her to urgent care on Friday night and the doctors said to give her Pedilalyte and don t give her a bottle until the following evening. we tried that but by baby doesn t seem to like the Pedialyte and drinks very little water, so we had no choice but to give her a bottle. Any suggestions? Thank You...By the way, no fever.

My 15 month old son was vomited 6 times in the span of 12 hours two nights ago. I took him to the emergency room and they told me he had stomach flu, gave him a tablet and told me to give him pedialyte. Today he woke up with a fever of 40C and diarrhea. In the past 24 hours he's only had 2 peed diapers and about 8 episodes of diarrhea. He's also only drank about 10oz of liquid in the last 24 hours. Should we go back to emergency?
