Six Ayurvedic Ways To Deal With Child Diabetes

Our traditional system of medicine has since time immemorial recommended fixed meal times, and fixed hours of sleep in order to stay in tune with the body’s cycles. This regularity is much needed for children, particularly if they are in the pre-diabetic stage.

Infant obesity can be mitigated with a good night’s sleep: Study
It is a known fact that a good night sleep is a cure to many health related issues. New research from investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital and collaborators suggests that newborns who sleep longer and wake up less throughout the night are less likely to be overweight in infancy.
“While an association between insufficient sleep and weight gain is well-established in adults and older children, this link has not been previously recognized in infants,” said study co-author Susan Redline, MD, MPH, senior physician in the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at the Brigham.
Susan Redline added, “In this study, we found that not only shorter nighttime sleep, but more sleep awakenings, were associated with a higher likelihood of infants becoming overweight in the first six months of life.”
Screen time impacts eye sight in children: Study
As per a new study, screen time is directly linked to the severity of myopia or short-sightedness. This could be found in children and young adults.
The researchers examined more than 3,000 studies investigating smart device exposure and myopia in children and young adults aged between 3 months old and 33 years old.
After analysing, they revealed that high levels of smart device screen time, such as looking at a mobile phone, is associated with around a 30 per cent higher risk of myopia and, when combined with excessive computer use, that risk rose to around 80 per cent.
