Management of Malnutrition Case in Paediatric Age Group
The term Malnourishment refers to both under nutrition and over nutrition. A major paediatric problem is deficiency, and it is responsible for high morbidity and mortality rates especially under 5 years of age group. Though clinical presentations of moderate acute malnourishment are limited, there is reduction in anthropometric measurements - especially weight, height and mid upper arm circumference (MUAC). There are no fixed strategies in Homoeopathy to deal with moderate and severe malnourished children. Hence to know the efficacy of homoeopathy in such cases, case report of malnourished child is described, in which the case is managed very well with homoeopathy and some ancillary measures.
