Posted on Sat, 22 Jul 2017 in Child Health
Question: Hi Doctor, My son 2 years 6 months old weighing 12.5 kgs is having a digestion problem. Whatever he is eating is coming out as stool without digestion. He is going daily 1 or 2 times normally but only the issue with indigestion. Means we are able to clearly see leafy, carrot and other vegetables in the stool. Please suggest a medication for the same.

Brief Answer:
Not a cause for concern.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I do not think that you need to get concerned. The green leafy vegetables contribute to forming the bulk of stool. So, I would not really be worried if the same comes out with stool in partially digested form. However, I would recommend that you maintain a regular spacing between meals and keep the meals light, reducing the total oil intake. If the stool is not foul smelling you would not need to get concerned. Giving curd or yogurt should help as they contain beneficial bacteria which should help in easing the digestion. Proper play activity is also essential for proper digestion.

Let me know if I could help further.
