Is my 2.5 years old daughter obese?

Q: My daughter is 2½ years, weighs around 20 kg and has a normal height. But her stomach is bigger then her body? What to do to reduce her stomach?

A:She is very obese for her age. Max permissible weight for her age 15-16 kg. There could be fat in her abdomen. However, get her examined to rule out any organomegaly. You must look at ways to reduce her weight. Be serious about this. Get her thyroid profile done. Consult a pediatric endocrinologist if you can.
