Brief Answer:
Its too early for bisyllables/ need vitamin D level

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX ..

1. It's too early at 9 months to speak bisyllables like what you have quoted. Bisyllables will come only at 12 months.

2. Sometimes teeth can start erupting as late as 16 months also. But I suggest you get back to me with serum Vitamin D levels of the kid.

Regards - Dr. Sumanth

Brief Answer:
I HAVE A FEW QUESTOINS FOR YOU

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX -

Taking Calshine doesn't preclude a vitamin D deficiency. Please answer my questions -

1. When did you or your spouse start speaking ( You need to get this information from your respective parents) ?

2. When did you or your spouse start getting teeth ( You need to get this information again from your respective parents) ?

3. Calshine Comes in different combinations - can you see the wrapper on the calshine and get back to me with t he composition of the preparation?

Even if your baby is on vitamin and calcium supplements I suggest you get a serum Vitamin D levels done and upload me the report please.

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
