How to Know if Your Child Has Nutrition Deficiency

Taking care of a child is no easy task. It’s sometimes difficult to give them everything they need in order to be happy. My best friend without knowing found out that her child had nutritional deficiency. This can lead to quite alarming consequences if it isn’t treated immediately. After everything was all over and after her daughter was completely save and healthy.

I decided to research more about nutritional deficiencies in children as I’m pretty sure she wasn’t the only one who didn’t know what to do once she found out. There are actually many signs that let you know if your child has nutritional deficiency. However, her lack of knowledge towards the matter lead her to find out about her daughters health a bit late.

I made this article in order to help any parent to monitor carefully their child once they start to see some of these symptoms. Once they are seen it’s highly advised to run some test results until you are 100% sure. Now, enough chit-chat and let’s begin!

 

Depression/Anxiety

Always be on the lookout if you notice your child experiencing depression or anxiety. However, anxiety and depression don’t always appear due to nutritional deficiency. Sometimes it can be caused by other factors such as bullying in school. Regardless of the cause it’s always best to get your child the help he/she needs before it’s too late.

 

Hyperactivity

Hyperactivity is related to the brains ability to process information and remain calm at the same time. Children with hyperactivity tend to have poor bacterial flora and digestion. This can make it hard for the body to absorb many different nutrients. Some doctors will recommend removing processed food along with food dyes to help combat hyperactivity.

Dry Skin/Hair

Experiencing dry skin and hair can be caused by many factors but in nutritional deficiency it’s quite common to experience it.

 

Cavities

The deficiency in proper minerals can cause cavities as well as deficiency in fat soluble vitamins that are needed to absorb and assimilate the minerals. It isn’t just caused by eating too many candies.

 

Frequent Colds and Flus

This was something that was worrying my best friend a lot when her child experienced nutritional deficiency. Before she knew the cause of her frequent colds and flus she simply gave her medicine and after a while she improved but it just kept coming right back.

 

Obesity

Who would’ve thought that obesity and nutritional deficiency were related? I was completely shocked as I was researching as I had no idea how it was possible but now it all makes sense. My friends’ daughter gained quite a lot of weight which even shocked me as it was quite rapidly the weight gain.
