Children’s health and parenting

Babies and children need special care from adults if they are to grow up healthy, happy, and as productive citizens. And parenting them is by no means, easy. Parents need to be on their toes right from when their little baby is born…with challenges ranging from newborn care and vaccinations to a healthy diet.

Join this Children’s Health and Parenting Support Group today to make the most of the time when your children are still young.

Environmental Birth Defects

Some birth defects are caused by factors in the environment of the fetus or the mother. These can include things like a rubella infection, which are difficult to control, and maternal alcohol abuse, which are totally preventable. Exposure to certain drugs, radiation, and diseases can cause environmental birth defects in the baby.

Join our support group for people and families of people with environmental birth defects. Learn more, ask experts your questions, and network for support.

Febrile Fits / Febrile Convulsions

Convulsions that occur in children in the age group of 6 months to 5 years are medically termed febrile fits. This excludes those convulsions that are precipitated by infection of the brain tissue or its coverings.

To learn more about febrile fits or febrile convulsions, our support group on the subject is the place to be.

Hib Vaccine

Hib vaccine protects against the bacteria H.influenza. The protozoan is known to cause severe types of bacterial infections like meningitis, pneumonia, and swelling of the throat. It is easily communicable through sneezing, coughing, and secretions from an infected person. 

For more details, use our Hib vaccine support group.

Hypospadias

Hypospadias is a birth defect where the opening to pass urine is one the underside of the penis instead of the tip. This does not usually cause much problem, and it is easily corrected – most surgeries for this can be done before the child turns one year old.

Join our online group on hypospadias. Ask questions, get answers from other experienced parents and experts, and learn more.

Infantile Cortical Hyperostosis / Caffey-Silverman disease

Infantile cortical hyperostosis is a disease affecting the bone and adjacent tissues of infants. The cortex of the affected bones (usually, the jawbones, collarbones, and the bones in the arms and legs) thickens and the surrounding tissue swells. The disease usually appears before the baby is six months old and disappears during childhood.

Join this online group on infantile cortical hyperstosis to contact doctors and meet other parents of children with this condition.

Kawasaki Disease

More common among the Japanese, the disease afflicts children and is a distinctive clinical illness characterized by fever and rash. It can result in serious complications involving the heart, causing large thrombosis, and even leading to death.

Medindia’s support group hosts further details on the Kawasaki disease, its occurrence, symptoms and treatment.

Kidney Stones in Children / Renal Stones in Children

Children are becoming increasingly susceptible to urinary/renal/kidney stones. It is imperative to identify and treat these to prevent stone recurrence. With the advent of newer facilities, 95% of stones in children can be removed without open surgery.

For additional information, advice and medical support from both patients and doctors, Medindia’s extensive support group is the place to be.

Measles / Rubeola

Measles is an infectious disease of the respiratory system with fever, cough, sneezing, a runny nose, red eyes, and generalized skin rash. Because it is caused by a virus, there is no treatment for measles except rest and plenty of fluids.

Join our online group on measles to ask your questions about the disease to experts and learn more.

Mitral Valve Regurgitation and Mitral Valve Replacement

Mitral valve regurgitation happens when the mitral valve, which controls blood flow between the left atrium and the left ventricle within the heart, does not close properly. This allows blood to flow back within the heart, and the heart is not able to pump blood to the body as efficiently. The defect is corrected with an open heart surgery to replace the damaged mitral valve with a tissue or mechanical valve.

Join our online group on mitral valve regurgitation and mitral valve replacement to ask your questions to experts, share your experiences, and learn more.

Mitral Valve Stenosis And Mitral Valve Replacement

Mitral valve stenosis happens when the mitral valve – which regulates blood flow between the upper and lower chambers in the left side of the heart – is narrowed. Mitral valve stenosis can lead eventually to heart failure or heart infections or stroke. Mitral valve replacement, an open heart surgery, is performed when the mitral valve is too damaged to be repaired.

Join our online support group for mitral valve stenosis and replacement to meet others who have undergone the procedure and talk to doctors who can help.
