Dear baby, heart meat, not just screaming, as long as it is good for children, can make children happy, parents are willing to invest. Drink imported milk powder, wear big-name clothes, attend expensive early education classes, bilingual classes.
However, do parents care enough about their children’s health?
Our children can eat and sleep, are smart and lively, and are in good health!
In fact, according to the survey, although the medical and health conditions and living conditions are continuously improving, it is not uncommon for children to suffer from nutritional imbalance, obesity, anemia, scoliosis, psychological problems, etc., and even children are detected to suffer from hypertension, abnormal blood lipid metabolism, abnormal glucose tolerance and other diseases that usually occur to adults.
Children’s physical examination should be paid attention to. Physical examination can discover the possible diseases of the baby in time, or the problems existing in the process of parents raising their children.
If many diseases can be found in time and intervened as soon as possible, very good curative effects can be achieved, especially diseases such as dementia, autism, cerebral palsy, audio-visual disorders, etc. The earlier they are found and treated, the better the later effect will be.
Is free medical examination not enough in community hospitals and health care centers?
Frankly speaking, the current domestic children’s health examination is generally rough.
Although these institutions provide free physical examination, the content is relatively single. Measure your height and weight, evaluate your growth and development, and have a blood routine, and you are finished.
Some physical examination centers, although the project is more comprehensive, but after the examination, it is rarely able to give parents real practical parenting guidance. After checking, you will go back and do the rest yourself, especially for the knowledge of growth and development and feeding, giving guidance either too little or not very reliable.
A truly high-quality physical examination, Not only should it be able to effectively evaluate the baby’s growth, development and health status, discover the baby’s developmental abnormalities or even adverse trends in time (such as the slow growth rate of height), but it can also provide strong guidance for parents’ feeding and education methods (such as how to ensure comprehensive nutrition), so that parents can raise their children less detours and improve efficiency.
Therefore, it is still worthwhile to spend money on a reliable physical examination institution.
What problems can be found in high-quality children’s physical examination?
1. Is the mental and psychological development normal
By observing and detecting the baby’s movement development and language development, we can evaluate whether the baby’s intelligence level is normal.
In order to achieve more accurate test results, it is not only necessary to rely on advanced equipment, but also on a scientific and complete evaluation process and the rich experience of doctors. Of course, it is also necessary for parents to observe carefully at ordinary times.
At this stage, some scientific and practical parenting skills are also very important.
A high-quality children’s physical examination institution should not only provide accurate assessment reports for children, but also provide scientific parenting guidance to parents and help their babies grow up healthily together with their parents.
Head circumference and fontanelle closure can reflect the growth and development of the baby to a certain extent.
Height is an important indicator of growth and development.
Almost all parents want their children to grow tall. Strict and high-quality physical examination will not only measure the child’s current height, but also analyze the growth trend of the child’s height in detail.
For example, after the child is 2 years old, if the influence of other factors on the body is excluded, the height growth every six months is less than 2 cm, and the height growth every year is less than 5 cm, further examination should be carried out to determine the reason for the slow growth of the child.
In addition, the detection of related hormones can help screen for dementia. The earlier such children are discovered and treated, the less impact they will have on their later lives.
Similarly, parents also need to understand scientific monitoring, feeding or treatment methods. Doctors should tell such specific knowledge as: how to add supplementary foods, whether it is appropriate to feed the baby honey and eggs, whether the baby can eat salt during what, whether his child is developing slowly, etc., which can really be used in the process of raising children.
It is very difficult for parents to find their children’s amblyopia in daily life, which can only be found through physical examination.
The treatment effect of amblyopia at a young age is better, and if the critical period of treatment is missed, it will be irreversible.
4. Otolaryngology problems
Hearing impairment in children is also difficult to find in daily life. Some medical institutions will provide advanced testing equipment to help screen children’s ear problems and avoid missing the best treatment period due to neglect.
Similarly, rhinitis is also a common disease among children, and the symptoms are repeated. Through professional physical examination, it can be found and solved in time.
5. Bone problems such as scoliosis and O-leg
Scoliosis is a common disease in children, which may lead to cervical spondylosis, lumbago and leg pain, asymmetric body development, etc. Early detection through physical examination can be corrected and improved through active and correct exercise.
Sometimes, abnormalities in bone growth and development are not easy to be found by parents and require careful physical examination by doctors to help judge.
6. Genital and anal malformations
Male babies need to see whether the testicles descend to the scrotum, while female babies need to see whether there is malformation in the external genitals. Early detection can minimize the damage.
Through physical examination and asking about daily living habits, you can find signs of obesity in your baby in time, and give practical and effective guidance to overweight children and obese children’s parents in controlling diet and increasing exercise. For example, cultivate children to develop good eating habits, establish healthy diet recipes, and change bad lifestyles.
8. Inadequate vaccination
Physical examination can also assess the vaccination status of the baby in time.
Vaccination must be timely and effective. Parents can be reminded to vaccinate their children in time through physical examination. Doctors can recommend unplanned vaccines individually according to the specific conditions of different babies.
If the physical examination finds that the baby’s protective antibody disappears or weakens, the vaccine can be revaccinated in time.
In addition to the above-mentioned items, a comprehensive physical examination of children should also include routine oral health, blood lead level, nutritional status analysis, etc.
Parents should pay attention to what?
Before physical examination
- The night before the physical examination, it is best to give the baby a warm bath and change into clean clothes. The baby’s physical examination manual, previous examination results, vaccine books, etc. are all ready to facilitate doctors to refer to the situation before the baby.

At the time of physical examination

Step 2: Raise your own questions
