Every child should have a yearly checkup even if they are happy and healthy. Diagnostics for children are always a good idea to make sure the child is healthy and their body is running well. The most subtle of changes in behavior could be a sign that a child needs a checkup.
Recently, a healthy 13-year-old girl came in, she was experiencing dizzy spells and from time to time fainting. After blood work and a visit to the doctor, it was her diet that was affecting her. She had got into the habit of eating too much sugar and not enough protein. Without a proper diet and neglecting certain food groups, her body was not getting the proper nutrients and was causing her dizzy spells.
Of course, we as parents do not want to be the bad guys and would like to let them eat what they want, but a proper diet is always necessary for a healthy child. Even though they may hate it and make a sad face, eating the proper foods will benefit them the most.
