Poor Weight Gain - Diagnosis

At Dr Batra’s™, we conduct a detailed clinical assessment of the child’s physical and mental growth. The following parameters are important to design a customised treatment plan for the child:

  • height and weight records
  • details of the child’s growth milestones as well as the mother’s pregnancy history to identify developmental delay
  • identifying underlying medical illnesses, behavioural issues and environmental triggers at home or school
  • nutritional intake and eating patterns of the child
  • specialised blood test and scans (i.e., X-ray or USG), if needed

Complications

Ignoring poor weight gain can lead to the following complications:

  • nutritional deficiencies
    • anaemia, bone pains, brittle bones, rickets, osteoporosis
    • extreme dryness of skin and early hair loss
  • low immunity
  • growth retardation
  • delayed puberty - underweight boys and girls fail to develop secondary sexual characters, with inhibited periods in girls
  • problems in concentrating, learning and memory
  • cardiac problems, in severe cases
