    1. its very common to have calcium vitamin D and iron deficiency in India. Calcium is also required for bone growth. calcium is found in fishes and shell and crabs.. vegetarian diet is not common except in ragi/nachani. as we donot give early sunlight exposure to most babies they do get vitamin D deficient. that makes calcium and vitamin D necessary for most toddlers.
      cows milk calcium is not appropriate for human kids.

  4. my son 3 year 9 months old is telling about pain in his Lower left leg. I consulted a local doctor who asked me to take a X-ray of his leg. Seeing the X-ray he asked me to admit him in the hospital and suggested him to ware a diamond shaped belt on his legs so that his blood circulation or bone marrow may develop or else he may not walk properly as he grows up, but he is walking properly till now. He didn't tell me the disease's name or what is the cause of it. Please advice me what my son is really going thru. We are worried about him. Please help.

    1. its important for me to have a look at xray or the child or pictures of same to try to understand.
      poor communication with patientd by doctors makes the patient switch to other doctors.
