Brief Answer:
Have vit D levels.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

It seems that your bones are weak.

If I am your treating doctor, I would advise you to have vit D, serum calcium, bone mineral density and send me the report.

Also get xray of both knee standing in AP View done and send me the report, I want to see present Condition of joint and condition of bones.

You can have calcium supplement and biphosphonate drugs by prescription of your doctor, I usually advise my patients to have this.

You should also visit orthopedic surgeon and discuss all this with him.

Have milk products in diet.

I hope you got the answer, subsequent query is welcomed.

Thanks,

Hi Doctor,

This is Sreeparna and little boy is just over 10 months. So far he was only taking Vitamin D supplements. I breast feed my boy as he needs along will home made food(vegetables and fruits). He is doing alright.

We have shifted our place and visited a new doctor close by. He has suggested calcium, iron and multivitamins as well with vitaminD. Do I really need to give him so much. Also can we start salt and sugar in his diet from now?

Thanks
Sreeparna

Hi,

My name is Ruchi and I am 31 years old. I have a constant pain in my right knee when I go down the stairs or upstairs.also both my knees make the cracking noise(friction) and it has grown over the years. secondly, my lower back starts hurting acutely if i stand for too long. I can barely bend backwards to strech my back. I have been excercising and utaking calcium in my normal diet but now I am wondering if it is something else. I dont have a history (except that my father has high uric acis issue and gets gout pains sometimes) there has been no past injuries. Can you please suggest what should I do in this situation. Do i need to see a specialist?
thanks
Ruchi
