Slow Down Budhia, Warn Medical Experts

Budhia Singh, India's young marathon kid had been warned against running long distances, as his health seems to be compromised, said a panel of doctors who had examined him//.

The kid's clinical parameters such as serum urea, serum ALKP (alkaline phosphatase) and serum potassium levels are higher, according to Sugat Kar, Chief medical officer, Capital Hospital. The boy aged four and half, is also said to have high blood pressure (135/85 mm Hg) and a pulse rate of 98/68.

Following this announcement, Budhia's coach, Biranchi Das also a judo trainer, is upset about their trip to London, to make the Guinness World Records bid next week. 'Signs of under-nourishment, vitamin deficiency and pallor have been noted. The boy should not run, as reflected by the abnormal parameters of health. Runners are expected to have high hemoglobin level. Budhia's levels are lower, 'commented a doctor who failed to reveal his identity.

The preliminary reports suggest that Budhia's kidneys are functioning normally. However, the kid would be subjected to a battery of tests such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and karyotyping (genetic) tests at Bhubaneshwar, to accurately assess his health condition. In view of the high blood pressure and the elevated blood urea level, there is a possibility of the kid's kidneys being damaged, said R.S.N. Murthy, cardiologist at the Capital Hospital.

The report of the health panel was submitted to the chairman of the Khurda district welfare committee, Rabi Shankar Mishra. Following, the boy was handed over to the police who had taken the boy to hospital.

A doctor who had examined Budhia during his 65 km run, had diagnosed presence of hypoglycemia, a dangerous condition characterized by abnormal drop in the blood sugar levels. He further warned that periosteal tear on the bones could result is severe injuries, at a later age, probably, by age 15.

Das, who is to fly to London on May 15th for a mara thon, however dismissed fears about Budhia's health, challenging the medical panel report. 'I have no reason to believe the tests are accurate. The doctors have been appointed by the government to give a dubious report. I will get Budhia tested at any hospital outside the state if necessary,' he said.
