Children normal weight height

Common Questions and Answers about Children normal weight height


Avatar n tn While your child's height, at approx. the 80%, is in the normal range, the weight is 30 pounds beyond the 95% and this is a problem. It's probably worth obtaining a second opinion about this, or at the very least having some workups done to rule out any endocrine or metabolic problem. At the very least, if all else is OK medically, consultation with a nutritionist relative to the daily diet would make sense.
Avatar n tn The doctor said she is 25% for weight and 90% for height/length... I think I might have a scientist that could have been a model on my hands... tall and skinny...
Avatar m tn But I fear if that causes further height increase as Pediasure is meant for increasing both height and weight in children. Can I give Pediasure as supplement so that he gains weight? I dont want further height increase. Are there any other good supplements that increases only weight and not height. Is his growth rate and height normal?
1468158 tn?1363029895 Thanks guys I've also started a food log. So I know what she's ate. Her uncle is like that eats and eats an it seems hard for him to gain weight. I don't like that she's so small but I feel better writing down what shes eating. They both have a healthy child check up next month Im gonna definitely ask the dr. then and weigh them both again. Hopefully she'll gain something! A friend said pediasure could help her gain weight. ? Would it be ok to feed her that?
Avatar m tn Oldest is severely over weight and suffers of thyroid problems. next one is 55 and height to weight is normal, I am 6-4 and 275 lbs. Over weight by 30 to 40 lbs. 37 year old is skinny and full of energy, he is half brother. Each are treated for same. Mom's sister has same, her children have the problem. and her grand children show signs of same. Thanks for sharing.
Avatar f tn My 6-yr daughter has been under the car of a pediatric endocrinologist for 18 months due to delayed growth. She dropped to the 0.8% in both height and weight. The dr has tested all her hormone levels with just a standard blood test, as well as testing her for Turner syndrome and celiac disease, but everything came back normal. She is now on an appetite stimulant, which has certainly caused her to eat more, but I still haven't seen much growth.
Avatar n tn Hi there wondering if anyone could help me, my son is 27 months old recently i took him to baby clinic as he just dosent seem to have grown much i no they do slow down at this age, when we measured him he was 85cm and weighs 13kg his weight has remained on the 50th centile but his height has always been on the 75th centile and has dropped right down to just above the ninth?
Avatar n tn No it is not low. Normal blood sugar in children is lower than in adults. In normal children blood sugar will stay close to fasting levels all the time. Ie. his blood sugar is probably in the range of 70 to 90, regardless of what he eats. Actually in non-diabetic adults blood sugar will also stay close to fasting levels all the time.
Avatar n tn They are both considered completely normal except for being below the 5th percentile in weight. She's in the 53rd in height, he's in the 60th. We've tried numerous approaches and even had our son (at age 2) evaluated by a team of feeding specialists at Cincinnati Children's hospital, where they found nothing physically wrong, and gave us behavioral advice and said that he would eventually grow out of it. He hasn't.
Avatar f tn how can I gain weight? I am a mother of 2 children and I've always been skinny...
Avatar f tn Her weight is just below the 50th percentile and her height is just above the 25th percentile for her age. She is normal for her age. That is good you are giving her Pediasure, however, give it to her in place of milk. Try milkshakes (milk and ice cream blended) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, frozen fruit, and ice cream blended) which is cheaper than Pediasure. To ‘broaden her tastes’ is to engage her in the kitchen more. Children love to be a part of making food.
230948 tn?1235847929 Thank you for your height and weight. You are within the normal weight for your height. I suggest an intake of 1500 calories to maintain your weight. If you start to gain weight, then bring the calorie level to 1200 calories; however, do not go with any less calories. Less then 1200 calories will bring you into a high risk of becoming malnourished. When anyone is dieting and exercising, measuring your waist is a better indicator of weight loss then the weight scale.
Avatar n tn Yes, after stopping my Propranalol, I have felt great, no more palps and chest pain, shortness of breath and weight gain has stopped, and now my hair is starting to grow back, I have stubble!!!!!! Never thought one medication could make me feel so crummy. I miss getting on here and talking with you and everyone else. I don't even see any familiar ones here anymore. So it's good to here from you. How is everything been going?
Avatar f tn ( just my opinion btw) they told me i was over weight according to my height etc..mind u, i had a flat stomach, nice "***" big breast etc ( i am from d island) but according to their bmi chart i was over weight.
Avatar n tn If you are 5'10 I would not try to get to 100lbs. That is very underweight for your height. 13 is when all children boys and girls start to gain but lose it within a year as if it never happened. I wouldn't be too worried about your weight at all.
Avatar n tn his weight. Based on his height, 225 lbs. is way too much. Although I can’t say for sure without examining him, I would say that one of the reasons that his heart rate went up so high is that he may be out of shape. At this point, there are two main permanent changes that he will have to make: dietary and exercise changes.
461551 tn?1328996184 The doctor said that your body may put on weight or take the weight from different areas and give it the baby. My fundal height is currently 3 weeks ahead of schedule, so they are not worried. As long as you are healthy and the baby is healthy you will be ok. ...I do think, however, that my days of not putting on a bunch of weight are over....
Avatar n tn We had her thyroid checked just a couple of years ago and everything came back normal. She is a very active child, always outdoors, playing with three to four other children. Rides bikes, walks, plays ball, etc.. but we are at a loss as to help her loose weight. We do not keep any candy in the house, stopped using any sugar at all over two years ago. Limit her intake, and yet she still gains weight. What can I do?
Avatar n tn if you smoke pot on a regular basis it will stay in your system for a long time. also, factors are height, weight body fat, because it stores in the fat cells. I would google it and you will find a bunch of information, and facts. Good luck. Nauty..........
Avatar f tn His weight is on the 10th percentile and his height is on the 25th percentile for his age which indicates he is normal. Was he on medication for his asthma recently? Some medications for asthma causes water retention, weight increases; and when it is discontinued weight decreases. He has numerous health issues. Suggest bringing him to his primary MD and have a complete physical done.
Avatar n tn under weight for his age (just under the 10th percentile weight for age) and his height is normal for his age. You can make him milkshakes with Soy milk (has no milk products in it) and frozen fruit which has extra calories and protein. Soy products are a good substitute. Thank you for your question.
Avatar n tn Your cycle day 2 E2 is normal. It should be low on cycle day 2. You do not have diminished ovarian reserve based on your cycle day 2 FSH and E2. However, your cycles may be too short and therefore may have problems with your luteal phase.
Avatar n tn My son is 5 1/2 and his weight is 78 lbs height :49 inches ,I have told his doctor of my cotch what I feed him . He sweat`s I know this may seem normal cosidering how much he weigh`s but he is solid .I do watch the food and I don`t give him junk food .He is constatly thirsty .He drink`s about a gallon of water a day .I asked his doctor if he could do a test to see if he has diabeaties, or check his thyroid .He told me he felt the test would be a waist , because diabetics lose weight.
Avatar f tn Any suggestions? Should I be concerned that her height is normal but weight is not? Developmentally she is fine, walking, playing, trying to talk etc. She had a cold right before her checkup and wasn't eating well and prior to her 12 month checkup she had a stomach bug. She had ear tubes put in at 7 months old bc she had ear infections every 3 weeks starting at 3 months old.
Avatar f tn She is between the 75-90th percentile for height and over 95 th percentile for weight. We are very healthy eaters and limit sugar, carbs and calories in our diets. My daughter is active and runs, plays, dances and does other actives each day. When she gets hungry it comes on quickly and is accompanied by irritability.
Avatar n tn She is, except in the winter, a very active kid participating in everything from cheerleading to swimming, but not consistently. I've had her thyroid checked and it keeps coming back normal. Most of her weight gain is in her stomach area and I cannot figure out for the life of me what's wrong. She does not overeat, as a matter of fact, sometimes she wakes up "full" and won't eat. I really need some help because I'm at the end of my rope.
Avatar n tn My daughter just had a follow up. She is 16 months old and she weighs 35.2lbs, height is 33" and head circumference is 51cm. I have a large head (24") and I have always had a large head. My daughter has been in for several blood draws, all of which are normal...Well, some came back as kind of low and such, but nothing that alarmed the endocrinologist. As my daughter has developed she has maintained the fact that she is always at 95% or above according to those stupid charts.
225237 tn?1333142599 (never exercised and ate whatever I wanted, but did lead an active lifestyle) In my 30s, I gained about 20lbs, which really just brought me up to a weight most guidelines consider normal for my height. In my 40s, I've gained another 20lbs, and it's time to act. The thing is, the weight just won't come off. When I was 97lbs and in my 20s, if I ever felt my belly was a bit puffy, I'd just do 20 sit-ups, and be perfectly flat again. I have never dieted.
