Can menigitis bring on and onset of hypotonia in infants?

My baby had menigitis when he was 6 days old. He now has hypotonia (low muscle tone). Just slightly but he cant hold his head up but for seconds; he is now 6 months old. Does anyone know if this linked together. Thanks
Thanks to everyone who responded to my question.

Yes! Meningitis is very serious condition specially in neonates. It can give rise to many complications like hypotonia, hearing loss, visual loss, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, epilepsy etc. Normally a baby should be having good neck holding at this age.
Don't be disappointed, sometime babies fully recover their deficits. Physiotherapy can help. Give olive oil massage.  (+ info)

Hypotonia/Low muscle tone?

I have had low muscle tone all my life and I've been looking it up on the net and all I can find is subject matter to do with infants. Can anyone reccomend a website that specialises in dealing with hypotonia as an adult?

When hypotonia develops in the adult years, it may be due to diseases associated with cerebellar degeneration (such as multiple sclerosis, Friedreich’s ataxia, or multiple system atrophy) in which neurons in the cerebellum -- the area of the brain that controls muscle coordination and balance -- deteriorate and die.

Hypotonia in toddlers long term effect?

Are there any adults here who suffered from low muscle tone or hypotonia when they were a baby or toddler? If so how old are you now and how are you coping today? Do you have any long term issues? Thank you.

My daughter was hypotonic as a baby. As a toddler, she could do typical children's movements, but her muscle tone (especially upper body) was not very strong, though her diet was good.
Throughout grade school (carrying books), her legs became strong, but the upper body still lagged. She tired easily.

In high school (heavier back pack), she gained a little more strength in the upper body.and that remained about the same until graduation. This past summer, she landed a job stocking a drugstore 20 hrs/week...and the daily exercise of using all different arm muscles really helped her arms.
She is now 20, going part time to college and working 14 hours/week. She has lost some of the strength.

My take on this situation: she slowly improved as she progressed through school. When forced to use her weakest area (arms) at work, she built them up to, I would say, "typical" tone. But if she goes without regular exercise, she loses her 'gains' faster, I think, than a non-hypotonic baby/toddler-turned-adult.

Other than that, no long term issues here. She'll never be really strong, but she is strong enough to have a successful life.  (+ info)

What are the implications of a hypotonia diagnosis by a doctor?

My 13-month-old daughter was just diagnosed with hypotonia as she is not crawling, walking or pulling to stand. What no doctor can tell me is what kind of future she may have or how long she will require physio, occupational and speech therapy.

There are many different causes to hypotonia. Sometimes it is just benign hypotonia and goes away with PT. Why is she getting OT and ST? If she is having other issues other than hypotonia (ie speech, poor fine motor skills), then she needs to have bloodwork by Geneticist for genetic causes. Has she had any regression? You really should pursue this with different Drs (Geneticist, Neurologist, etc) and do some online research. My daughter was diagnosed when I found her symptoms online.  (+ info)

What muscle growth supplements really work?

I like to try working out and build some muscles and a 6 pack,there are many muscle growth suplements,but I dont know which one really work? does anyone know about ``Sterodrol``?? it sais in their website that you will gain up to 30 pounds of muscle mass in 30 days. I know steroids are illegal,I am looking for something similar to them but legal with less side effects. Could you please help me find what I am looking for?
Thank you so much.

Seriously not a good idea to use Steredrol, not unless you REALLY know what your doing. I would advise you try Xtreme NO. I had really good results with it when my personal trainer put me on a four week trial of it. My size and strength both shot up! check the link below for the before and after pics.  (+ info)

What is the difference between lean muscle from high reps, and big muscle from low reps?

What is the difference between lean muscle from high reps, and bulk muscle from low reps?
Is there any molecular difference is it just more fat free?
Is it healthier?
I know lean muscle has more endurance.
Would its strength last longer if you just quit lifting?
What can you tell me.
Say between someone that does 8 to 10 reps and someone that does 17 to 20 reps.
And would it make it a better base for muscle if you did you17 to 20 then droped to 8 to 10 and then back up to twenty again?

How much Muscle in pounds can you build with bodyweight exercises?

I want a rough estimate to how many pounds of muscle can I build with just bodyweight exercises if you are weak to start off with them. I am overweight and I'm planning on building some muscle and losing fat from bodyweight exercises.Will I be able to get abs and a defined, muscular body just by doing bodyweight exercises?When I say defined, muscular body, I'm thinking maybe 25% of the muscle Arnold Schwarzenegger had when he was bodybuilding.

Do you plan on doing any cardiovascular work along with the exercises? you can lose the body-fat and uncover the muscle you already have. You can also tone up the muscles you already have by conditioning exercises like push-ups, pull-ups, lunges, crunches etc.
The average male can naturally only put on 12-15 lbs of lean muscle in a years time. Without strength training with resistance, I'd say you could tone up your existing muscle and probably put on a few (5-7) pounds of additional muscle in a year. Doing the cardio to burn the fat is the most important thing you can do to shed the fat. In fact you would have to do it in order to accomplish your goal. Eating healthy is key as well. I like to recommend the 40-30-30 plan. 40% carbs, 30 % Protein, and 30% fat. Except for dinner, I then suggest only a lean meat and green veggies (low carbs). Don't need them at night, you want your body to burn fat then. My clients saw great results with this. Good Luck Hope this helps.

and ASK ME ANYTHING...... where did you get your info, cuz you're way off base pal!  (+ info)

How long does it take the body to develop one pound of muscle?

I recently bought one of those scales that measure body fat % along with body weight & muscle weigt via a light electric current sent though the body. I am pretty certain it is accurate b/c it is in line with the calpers test two trainers did on me. What my question is, is how long does it take the body to gain muscle? I realize that you cant turn fat into muscle, but that you have to burn fat and the muscle will reveal it's self, However I want to gain muscle over all. I am curious as to how long it will take to gain one pound of muscle in the body. B/c I really cant afford to lose to much muscle (only 94lbs of muscle) And my trainer said that you will loose some muscle initially while losing fat. So I want to bulk up a little so I dont lose to much muscle. Any input is much appreciated.

A pound of muscle weighs the same as a pound of fat, but muscle mass is more compact and only takes up 1/3 the space! If you go on a healthy weight loss program, which includes regular exercise, you will almost certainly gain muscle and lose fat. The scale may stay the same or may even go up, but you lose inches, since muscle takes up less space.

The only way to gain weight is to create a calorie excess. So, in theory, to gain ½ pound to a pound a week, that means creating an excess of 250-500 calories per day. Whether or not those extra calories go towards building muscle or body fat depends on whether or not you exercise. Of course, as with weight loss, genetic differences make it easier for some people to gain weight and harder for others. If your metabolism speeds way up every time you eat more, you may have to consume many more calories before you’ll achieve results  (+ info)
