Common Questions and Answers about Height weight chart kids


2095187 tn?1333095034 Your weight is actually low for your age and if you want to grow taller, please do not go on a diet to lose weight. The average weight for your age and height is 115 pounds. If you think you look fat, then I would exercise as it is a way to tone muscles instead of dieting to lose weight. I don't think you are fat. The pictures in magazine are air brushed digitally on the computer to make girls look thinner than they are in real life. http://www.chartsgraphsdiagrams.
118074 tn?1228332603 1 lb, the nurse said he's fallen off the chart...his height is in the 10-25 percentile. The doc didn't seems to be too concerned but she said he needs to have a different diet that contains more fat. Any suggestions here? I am very worried and don't know what to do since he doesn't like to eat. Help!
2020005 tn?1476662562 But he was always small after his initial birth weight of over 8 pounds. My doctor tracks kids on their own curves. Some kids are smaller and that is THEIR normal. That is the case with my son. During his first couple of months, they had me feed him all the time on a every two hour schedule. He exclusively nursed. Man, I was tired. But I did it and honestly, he ate very well. He was just small.
Avatar n tn We are all average height and weight. I gained 50. Now is not the time to worry. Like everyone has said, eat healthy, continue to exercise like before (with doc approval) and dont obsess over weight gain.
620923 tn?1452919248 I have a few things that are for those with limitations, and we have to start off slowly and add so we do not over do it...... May I ask, what have u tried that did not work?
Avatar n tn I put those words in italics because I personally believe that height/weight charts are laughable and it's no way to actually judge whether or not a person is at a healthy weight. I can guarantee that I will never weight 135 LBs. I certainly do need to lose some weight because I am carrying some unhealthy weight but I am one of those people who will never be thin or "height/weight proportionate".
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar f tn Brandy, according to this chart, he is well below even the 1% mark, indicating he is "off the chart" low. http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/growthcharts/boysbirth.html Has he always been low weight? How is his height compared to the chart? That was something our pediatrician always looked for - a consistent pattern.
Avatar n tn so i brought it up to my doctors and they said he under weight and has been off the chart since he was 4 month old. why didn't they say something then instead of me having to ask? now they want to give him 6 months to grow and put him on a growth hormone and if that does not work a feeding tube. i really dont think he needs that stuff he healthy does everything normal like any other child he just no a big eater.
Avatar n tn My Daughter was in the 75th percentile weight wise for a while, but when I compared her lenght it was in the 75th percentile too. is his height relative to his weight? If your baby is short too...you don't want to put any more weight on him..he will be just fine..that is just his build! :D Good luck!
Avatar n tn I'll be 46 at the end of this month & just moved to a new state so I don't have the luxury of knowing any doctors. In the last 1-2 months I suddenly gained 40 + lbs & look pregnant. That seems to be where the weight all is. A urinalysis proved negative for pregnancy on Monday & with my 3 grown kids I did not gain this much weight &/or so fast. I just look pregnant & feel "full - heavy - tired & short of breath" most of the time.
Avatar n tn I was looking back on my weight loss chart and saw that within 3 weeks of starting lexapro each time, I had a significant weight gain. I went from 175 to 185 the first time and then continued to gain despite following the program and exercising. When I went off the med, the weight began to drop and I made it down below 200. I started it again in February this year and within 3 weeks, here came another 10 pounds and it's been steadilly going up ever since.
Avatar n tn It's the March of Dimes chart on how much weight gain is desirable during pregnancy. I don't see where the doctor got the snide remark, myself. I'm at 30 weeks and have gained 21 lbs. and that hasn't bothered my doctor at all.
Avatar n tn Continue your exercise and weights to lose atleast 500 calories per day and alternatively visit a dietician to design a balanced diet for you with lesser calories required for your age and weight and height. Take care!
Avatar f tn I know this is a pretty frequently talked about topic, but I was wondering how much weight everyone gained w/ their pregnancies. I am at the point now where I am rapidly gaining weight (1-1 1/2 lbs a week) and it is taking a toll. I am only 5'2'', normally 115 lbs. (at most) and all the weight gain is killing my back and hurting my knees(worse than my first). I am 32 1/2 weeks and have already gained over 20 lbs., and will probably hit 30 lbs. by the end (gained 28 lbs. with Maddy)..
Avatar n tn I feel like all the ideal measure on weight and height out there are scewed for people that lift and have large muscle mass. Im concerned Im overweight but not sure if its healthy weight or not? I made an appt for this week to get blood work done to figure out if it is a thyroid or some type of hormonal problem. It was commforting to hear Im not the only one with this type of problem! Thanks for all the info!
Avatar n tn It may be worth while to check your BMI or your weight/height ratios. In the US especially, there is a diseased perception of what a good weight is. Often, folks at a healthy weight want to loose to a point where they'd be underweight. Young women are more prone to that misperception of good health, but it's not uncommon among men. I know a fellow who suffered that way.
98010 tn?1305903335 ( my ideal weight should be around 85kg. I'm 24 with a height of 183cm , it suck that I can get my weight off! But I fill fitter and healthier, I weigh myself once a week and I can't seem to get the weight off. I'm watching what I eat and cut out a lot off fatty foods and drinks , I drink 3-4 Ltr of water a day , what else can I do to get the weight to fall off???
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second shot.....my weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
Avatar n tn by the way her father is a small built person with 5ft 2inch height with 57 kg weight. could the gene play the role to determine her growth, physique?
Avatar m tn And, if they are using more modern charts, you need to remember that most babies do switch to formula well before 12 months old and that also skews the charts in favor of more weight gain. In fact, according to WHO's height/weight chart (which is said to be based on breastfed babies only), your daughter ranks around the 30th percentile in weight. Not bad at all!!! Try not to worry, if she is reaching her milestones, she is most likely fine.
Avatar n tn My son is 2yrs 7 months and for a while everytime I took him to his well baby checkups he was smaller in weight/height compare to kids his age. (He was making his own line in the height/weight chart). He didn't use to be a picky eater, but now he just wants to drink milk and eat fruits. He seems to be getting skinner, but I'm not sure if it's becauce he is growing or because he's not getting enough to eat.
Avatar f tn I am concerned about my child's weight since having an appetite has never been an issue. The lack of significant weight did not occur until 2 1/2 years ago. At that time my child went through a very tramatic event. Since then there has not really been any real significant weight gain that has been permanent. I was told by the endocrinologist that Constitutional Growth Delay had more to do with height than with the actual weight. Can someone clarify this for me?
Avatar n tn If her height was based on adult measurements she would need to gain that much weight, however, she is still a child and should be having her weight and height charted on the growth charts. She does needs to gain some weight. She is entering puberty and will be gaining weight as she becomes a 'woman'.
Avatar n tn From your measurements his weight is just below the 25th percentile and his height is just below the 95th percentile. He within the Growth Chart and is normal for his age. He may appear thinner than he is due to his tall stature. He has lose weight, suggest making milkshakes (milk, ice cream, and fresh fruit or frozen fruit – if he accepts it) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, fresh fruit, and frozen fruit) to give in place of milk for meals and snacks to give him calories.
Avatar f tn The doctors usually put their height and weight on a chart and let you know what percentile they fall into. If you are that concerned, I would have a physical done so that you can get an idea of where he is and where he should be. The doctor can then let you know what course of action to take.
Avatar f tn Our 6 yo son has had trouble growing in height and weight since he was 6 months old. All his blood tests are normal. He is below the 3rd percentile growth curve in height and weight. He was a vaginal delivery and not premature. I’m wondering if any of you had a child like this and whether that child ended up growing well later on in his or her teenage years. Thanks very much!
Avatar f tn I give her milk three times a day. She never tells me for any food. She is gaining weight and height at a very slow rate. She has weight 13 kgs. Please help!! I have tried different things to make her busy during her meal time, but nothing helped. How I can improve her weight.
377493 tn?1356505749 32 inches tall, and about 24 lbs. His weight is more explainable given the lengthy rotavirus, but the height is concerning. My husband and I are both about 6', so it seems odd he would be short. I was under the impression he was tall until I read up on average heights for his age. He does see his Pediatrician fairly regularly and she hasn't expressed concern as he was following and even increasing his curve, but I still worry.
