Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight chart for children


Avatar n tn However, we have noticed that she is carrying more weight than I would like for her to. What is the ideal weight range for a child of her height? We also would like to know what we could do to help her reach that weight range? Thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn You need do a chart for you height and weight and find your own target heart rate by your pulse for your age. Depending on the excersise you do (dishes and vacuming can burn calories) you need to burn more calories than you consume to loose weight. There are alot of websites that will chart it for you. example: if you consume 800 calories a day you need to excercise to burn 1000 calories. This pattern will drop weight. Does that make sense.
367974 tn?1286554758 I am on the straight and narrow though now I have this little angel in me! apparently my ideal weight is 52kg's but I dont want to be that thin id look like a wafer biscuit! i have pcos and i am insulin resistance. i am a relatively strong and fit person though and I eat well. I have had laprascopic gastric banding and I have had some success. I havent been as succesful as some people whove had it but it at least it keeps me in check.
Avatar f tn thanks for your responses. I have been on Lamictal twice. It didn't seem to do anything at all. I don't have much of an appetite and, if anything, I've eaten less since I started the lithium. Guess I'll wait and see what happens.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have experience with this medication for children who are not diabetic and have been given Metformin for weight loss? We are concerned about the possible side-effects of this medication.
Avatar n tn Did anyone who went back on it continue to lose weight? I was told it didn't work the second time around for weight loss. Also, if I am refilling my prescription after being off it for 2 months, should I titrate up? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Males: IBW = 50 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet. Females: IBW = 45.5 kg + 2.3 kg for each inch over 5 feet Your IBW is calculated to be 61.5 kg, so you are currently about 22% below your ideal body weight. In addition, your body mass index (BMI) is 17.6, which is considered underweight. With your height and age, you are in the 5th percentile when plotted on the Growth Curve Chart of the Bayley-Pinneau method. So, by definition, you are not in the short stature category.
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 told by my phys. that Lexapro would not cause a weight gain while taking it for slight depression. If it causes weight gain, I need to get off this stuff. Please provide feedback.
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 n tn Diet chart is the way to go, what is low carb for you may not be proper for your body to lose weight. Go to a dietician and plan a neat diet chart of 500 cals less than the recommended calories of your age and height, take proteins, minerals, vitamins, high fibre carbohydrate, some fat without cholesterol. + dance which is intense so that you lose atleast 500 cals in 1 to 11/2 hrs. Take care, as with this you will lose weight!
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second 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 m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
358971 tn?1330892575 Having said that, NOTHING could prepare us for the work that came from having children. I watch this same scenario every day with my daughter and her husband (who live with us) - - - one is in school and one works full time. It's not enough to make it on their own in this State and when they had my granddaughter (11months), their life changed. Anyone that has had a child understands that concept, but you simply cannot get people to see this, until they live it themselves.

Avatar f tn I don't say this to be mean but this is exactly what I did do and if I could do it all over I would do it much differently. If I had then I might still be at my ideal weight and not insulin resistant. Best of luck to you!
Avatar f tn Actually hun, I believe the ideal weight for your height and age, you should be 90 pounds. I think your right where you should be. Of course their will be people who tease you, but losing too much weight when your only 86 pounds may not be healthy. Don't risk your health trying to lose unnecessary weight. If it concerns you a lot, I'd speak to a doctor before you try to lose weight. My cousin is also 4'11'' and she weight 98 pounds. She doesn't look big at all.
Avatar f tn I finally ended up calling my endoc for an rx of steroids. Of course, I think the office is now closed (I left a message). Can someone explain to me why hydrocortisone is ideal, and if the physiological doses are as I read: 15-20 mg Total day, split up 2-3x day.
Avatar f tn Hi All! Need some suggestions/advice. I am a 54 yr old woman who has been spotting/bleeding for the past 3 1/2 years. EVERY DAY! Only went away for 5 months 2 1/2 yrs ago, then on again. Just had an endometrial biopsy at the "clinic" (charity care), and they say I have this complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia. They are telling me I need a hysterectomy, but before I can get it I need a hysteroscopy first. Telling me it is pre-cancerous, but that 40-55% is usually cancerous.
Avatar n tn these children tend to sleep for shorter periods as well. Dont stop nursing! Its the best thing you can do for him until he's a year old! Plus, he is obviously getting enough food! Good luck to you both. HFHS.
Avatar n tn I am trying to lose now too, my doc says I am not overweigt but I found a chart on the net that says I am so I want to drop to ideal by that chart so I should take 20 off I think. SO far I have lost 7. Good luck, congrats on getting a start date for tx! Good luck working on the weight, you can do it! MY matra, when every step hurt was "there is no gain without pain" which was my old swim coaches' mantra while I worked out for the Olympics as a kid.
Avatar n tn Just thousands upon thousands of suffering men, women, and children who have sweltered in the heat with little food and water for 5 days now, and to their view, this is life or death as they see no help coming. The media likes to show the worst of any situation. Then we all get the idea that everyone is acting like that. I'd say I would be getting violent myself right now if I were there.
Avatar f tn Just my two cents, your drop sounds pretty normal and your symptoms also,one thing to keep in mind is your at about the period on Tx when often Hb starts to recover or at least stabilise.I agree that keeping the Riba dose up if possible is ideal but at 14 weeks a drop for a week or so is not the end of the world,the concentration of Riba in your body by now will be fairly high.As long as they monitor you closely you should be fine.
Avatar f tn It bothers me alot that my hair is falling out but for now I'm staying on the med because I'm not on it for the weight loss I'm on it to controll my migraines.It does that very well.There are other sites that you can tell about your side effects, good and bad that you can look into.Some people dont say anything about weight loss but hair loss. Good luck !and Thank you!
964234 tn?1331952807 On average, your baby should take in about 2 1⁄2 ounces (75 ml) of formula a day for every pound (453 grams) of body weight. But he probably will regulate his intake from day to day to meet his own specific needs. So instead of going by fixed amounts, let him tell you when he’s had enough. If he becomes fidgety or easily distracted during a feeding, he’s probably finished. If he drains the bottle and still continues smacking his lips, he might still be hungry.
1237757 tn?1323146719 I'm also looking at putting together a document or documents (may need to stage this out over a period) to hand over to a future manager as I come out or just in case I have a bad run, which will explain bipolar disorder in more detail, some of the great hypomanics of our day, how I'm affected by bipolar disorder, and how I am managing it, through mostly exercise seeing a psychologist regularly and medication on an as needed basis.
