Tuesdays are Your Turn – Kids’ Health Online

This one’s from me.

I’m researching a project I can’t talk about yet, but please consider helping out this Asthma Mom by answering today’s question:

Besides asthma and allergies, which children’s health topics do you read about on the Internet?

Thanks in advance! All will be revealed. . . . eventually.

    I read about a TON of things. Maybe not regularly…but if I come across a disorder, either when I’m subbing, or reading different things…I’ll look it up to learn more. I read a lot about childhood depression, ADHD, and other children’s psych/mood disorders. I read and research stomach stuff…I read a ton on Autism. I read about Cystic Fibrosis…but that might fall in with the allergy/asthma stuff.

    I read whatever catches my eye, honestly. I read asthma stuff because even the kid stuff applies to me. I read about bronchopulmonary dysplasia because I have it. I read about ADHD because my sister has it, adolescent major depressive episodes because I had one, auto-immune disorders because a few friends had nasty ones, and so on. Stuff that I have no personal connection to, I read about because I’m relentlessly curious (I blame my parents, who taught me, “you don’t know what that word means? Look it up!” – I think I was the only kindergardener in my class who a) knew what a dictionary was, b) knew how to use it, and c) would read it for fun). Even now, I can’t stand not knowing what something means.

    Much like sarah here I tend to research anything I come across that I dont know about out of curiousity (I also blame my parents who were also big proponents of the look it up tactic)
    I do a lot of adult research on hepatitis and diabetes for my mom too
    But as far as kids go? Mostly asthma and allergies, but I also have been researching aspergers syndrome and related autistic spectrum disorders as my sister is diagnosed asperger’s and we suspect my daughter could be as the docs have mentioned sensory processing and OCD as likely possibilities for her
    Also speech time tables. My 18 month old is not talking much so i got worried and started (and continued) researching that as well.

    Besides asthma and allergies — I read a lot about childhood vaccination — more specifically about how to make the pro-vaccine case to anti-vaxxers. As we are about to add a 2.5 year old to our family, I read a ton about adoption-related health issues, post-institution disorders, etc.
