Weight Loss and Children - some tips!
BEYOND JUST "WHAT TO DO"
Dr. Michael Wald believes that it is not enough to just figure out the nutritional needs of children without also developing effective strategies that allow children and their parents to effectively follow through with specific nutritional advice. The good news is that Dr. Wald works with children of all ages and kids with his warm and caring nature.
UNDERNUTRITION AND CHILDREN
Scientific studies have shown that many children, even overweight children, are nutritionally deficient (known as over-consumptive malnutrition) in various vitamins and minerals as well as certain types of essential amino acids, fats and carbohydrates. Figuring out the unique nutritional needs of a child may be complex, but can be accomplished by listening, performing a careful medical and nutritional history and examination, and through laboratory testing.
Dr. Wald is happy to work with your pediatrician. Sometimes, a team-approach is the best approach. Schedule an appointment.
Common pediatric and young adult problems which may be helped by nutritional intervention include:
Attention Deficit Disorder & Hyperactivity
- Neuromusculoskeletal pain/stiffness
Throat and Ear Infections
