Dr. Farnoush Jamali of Prime Pediatrics is a pediatrician Gaithersburg residents frequently visit for care and advice to keep their children healthy and full of vitality. Since June is Children's Awareness Month he has decided to use this opportunity to bring children's health issues to the forefront and educate parents.
Children's Health Concerns
Children's Awareness Month is a perfect time to call attention to health and wellness in youngsters across the country. There are a few childhood health issues in particular that are concerning to pediatricians:
Behavioral and mental disorders like ADHD affect as much as 11 percent of school aged children (over six million). Childhood obesity is another major issue affecting young kids. Due to the Internet and learned habits, a lot of children aren't getting enough exercise and activity. They're also eating more unhealthy foods compared to 30, 40, 50 or more years ago. Juvenile diabetes is a health issue that is on the rise thanks in part to childhood obesity and poor diet.
Gaithersburg pediatrician Dr. Jamali has a few tips for parents to help prevent these problems or keep symptoms under control:
- Limit the child's sugar intake. Sugar is one of the worst substances for both children and adults to consume it in excess.
- Encourage children to get up and get active. Limit time on the computer and in front of the television.
- Visit a pediatrician regularly for checkups to catch, manage and treat health concerns.
"My goal is to educate parents about common childhood health issues and assist them with the best treatments and prevention methods," says Dr. Jamali. "Parents are in complete control of their children's health. A lot of common issues can be prevented or managed with adjustments to the child's diet, lifestyle and activities."
