 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My daughter has bow legs, and a slow growth of teeth and hair. We gave her calcium supplements, but this caused loose motions. What should I do?

Neelesh (Ahmedabad, India)

A: Bowlegs at this stage are completely normal. If his calcium levels are normal, then giving extra calcium will not be of any help. Make sure he does not have any thyroid deficiency. Some children take a bit longer to develop teeth. If the rest of his development were normal, I suggest you wait and watch. Don't force her to stand too long.

Dr. Balasubramanian

Q: Our child has got bowlegs. What can we do? Is there any treatment?

Pia (Vancouver, Canada)

A: Bow legs are normal till 3 years. As the child grows taller and the leg bones enlarge, the bowlegs will disappear.
