Dear Sir How many children were you recruited in your study, what method you adopted to take the subjects. why you divided the patients into two groups, what was your objective. study design is absent your study. how you concluded your results without facts and figures. though this is a very study topic, nothing is said new. to strengthen your study you must express your results statistically.
More about your study demographic features are missed, any type of sever disease , type of treatment, follow-up (may be) is absent. It is humble advise, try to discuss with design specialist and Bio statistician
