Dear,Shahbaz,first of all talk to your doctor and try to find out the reason for poor growth.It may be nutritional deficiency,high blood pressure or some hormonal deficiency.So please talk to him first.Then after diagnosis focus on its treatment.In general adequate rest with nutritious diet will help.Ask her to sleep in left lateral position,that will improve blood flow to the fetus.bye and take care.

Hello Shabaz

The fetus weight at 24 weeks/6 months will be around 600-800 gms. It almost doubles/ increases by 3 times in the last three months of the term.
Your wife has to concentrate more on increasing calories, fluids and fruits in her diet and engage in mild walking and lamaz techniques to aid in smooth labour.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
