29 months baby, 11 kg in weight, lesser height for age. Suggestions to gain weight and height?

Hi, my son is 29 months old weighing only 11kgs and also a little shorter then the actual height of his peers. But very active and reaching milestones. He hasn't gained much weight since his 1st birthday. Just gained 1 kg in 17 months. He's very fussy about eating food. Any suggestions to help him gain some weight and height? Is it a matter of concern?

Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

A comment on the height can be made only if I have his current height.

Please give your kid a balanced diet rich in calories and proteins. Give him milk, eggs etc. Monitor his height and weight. If you feel that there is no gain in height and weight despite a balanced diet contact your doctor.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi, I m 28, female in Australia... I used to weigh 149kg s, I now weigh 89kg after having a gastric sleeve in dec 2011. My question is... What could be causing a irregular heart beat feeling and a flutter in my chest after I have eaten? I hadn t done any heavy exercise before eating so it s all at a slow regular pace. I used to get it before my weight loss surgery, but I m still having them. When it happens I check my pulse also it has a normal heart beat but then it feels like there is a slight pause and a hard thump right after. It happens quite a few times in the space of approximately 30seconds, then when I count my heart beat I count 50 beats in 30 seconds then after a minute I m fine again. This is really scary for me as i have heart problems in my family from my grandma (mothers side). What could be causing this?

Good evening. I have been on a low carb, high protein diet over the past 3 weeks and am enjoying this change of lifestyle. i only eat clean foods, plenty of fruit and veges, lean chicken and fish. Typical of everything the professionals tell you. I have been losing weight also which of course is a bonus. I started taking metamusil over the past 3 days in my morning juice plus drink 1 ltr of fresh water plus a couple of coffees daily. My problem now is, i have not used my bowels for the past 3 days and my flatulance has increased and really smells offensive. What do you suggest? Please help.

The last 3 days I ve passed stools that appear to have white clumps of a stringy like substance intertwined in it. I have changed my diet and eat more protein than usual. I also started working out. The diet change was about a month ago as well as the working out. Any idea what it could be? Is it just something associated with the high protein diet and a reduction in carb intake?
