Brief Answer:
The report is normal - I have few questions for you

Detailed Answer:
Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic.

I have seen the report. It's a normal report. This is not a thyroid issue.

I think your kid is having habitual constipation. I have certain questions and suggestions for you.

1. Did your kid pass motion or meconium on day one of life?
2. Since how long is the kid constipated?
3. Does the kid have any bleeding along with hard stools?
4. How much milk does the kid consume per day?
5. Does the kid eat fruits and vegetables (fibre diet) appropriately?

Please get back with answers, so that I can guide you better.

Regards - Dr. Sumanth

Brief Answer:
Suggestions on habitual consitpation

Detailed Answer:
Hi... I understand your concern. I feel this is habitual constipation and in this - 70% management is life style and dietary modification and 30% is medication. I will suggest you what should be done with respect to life style and diet as the medications have already been prescribed and seem to be good.

1. Natural methods are the best to relieve constipation.
2. Constipation is a risk factor for UTI
3. Maximum milk consumption per day should not exceed 300ml
4. Minimum 3-4 cups of fruits and vegetables to be consumed per day (especially papaya and XXXXXXX fruit)
5. Toilet training - that is - sitting in XXXXXXX type of lavatory daily at the same time will help a lot. This is the right time to do. Everyday the child should be made to sit in a potty which is designed like an XXXXXXX lavatory model (squatting) at the same time if possible.
6. Water intake should be at least 1.5 liters per day.

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.

I am a Ph.D. chemist, ~50, have been taking thyroid medication since 1995, Since switching from T4 only to T3/T4 (25ug/75ug), I have seen a big improvement in cognition and then on switching to T3 (50ug) only (done this myself for just the past 3 days see and even better improvement when it comes to my attention span. In addition, I take meds for depression & anxiety. I have not experienced any unpleasant side effects of T3 only besides a little diarrhea--is this OK? ( I think somehow, my body has a greatly diminished ability to covert T4 to T3).
