Parents may feel quite at a loss to face the possibility of their children developing certain health conditions at various growth stages. We explore various children health issues and provide useful advice through this issue of Health Affairs.
There’s a rising prevalence of myopia for Hong Kong Children. Our ophthalmologist explains the importance of early eye examination, while our registered Chinese Medicine practitioner believes myopia is related to impaired liver function and thereby introduces a variety of corresponding food therapy and acupressure. To fit the needs of infants and toddlers, our registered dietitian educates readers about dietary planning for children and recommends 10 nutritious foods suitable for them. Genomic testing has become increasingly popular in recent years. Our Executive Medical Director gives an introduction on types and usages of such tests for you to have a better understanding of this innovative technology.
In addition, this issue of Health Affairs also covers topics like asthma, summer fever in children, dental care and sun protection tips to help you in your parenting journey. Be a confident and happy parent!
Copies are available at our medical centres, or you can browse the e-version online. Happy reading!
