There is also a source of great concern, especially for parents and all the mothers who saw the baby cries immediately thought of problems with the assimilation of food in general and more specifically, impaired appetite. But anorexia is rarely the result of a disease in the true sense of the term biological said. This is not a reason not to think about.

Anorexia infants most often due to infection, the symptoms are so insignificant in itself. This causes fever, vomiting, cough and runny nose. From the current decline in the willingness to swallow food, infections, is easily explained. Indeed, the baby's body needs all the strength to fight against the germs that cause disease.

After the withdrawal of anorexia in response to infection, most of the time, nasopharyngitis and urinary tract infection, we must think of hypochromic anemia (iron deficiency) is a typical white child, violation of gastro-intestinal malabsorption of auscultation cardiovascular defect is often highlighted by the heart and kidney failure is rare.
Additional tests, including preparations of blood cell count (number of red, white and platelets), urinalysis, determination of blood urea and creatinine. This review will help to convince the mother when they are normal.

It is necessary to avoid before the symptoms when the child is properly inspected, entered the game in the mother holding a situation that increases unnecessary additional testing and treatment are particularly unhelpful. Do not make things worse, because it may complicate the situation.
