Avatar n tn At 13, most teenagers are well into puberty and may be in the middle of or about to embark on growth spurts. Their height and weight may go through many changes in their teen years. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the average height for a 13-year-old girl is 5'1 3/4". Girls' normal height can range from 4'11 1/4" at the 10th percentile to 5' 5 3/4" at the 90th percentile.
1467697 tn?1286432019 Vitamin D3 is a good one to add for most thyroid issues. Magnesium and a good probiotic and fish oil is also a good idea for many. We take all suppliments at night. What thyroid medication are you on and how do you feel? Does your doctor track your freet3 and freet4 level as these are best to moniter and corrolate best with hypothyroid symptoms. Would love to chat with you and compair notes as it is not common to find others who were born without a thyroid gland.
Avatar n tn He is loosing his weight. And also he is very active and we did his blood test everything is normal.
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 n tn Thanks for the info Marjalo. I went to GNC the other day and they have one of those scales that you put in all your info ( age, height, etc...) It said my ideal weight should be between 112-125lbs. My husband just looked at me with this smug little smile on his face, but I know he is worried. I started taking vitamins and driking ensure just in case. Next appointment with Doc is 18th as long as I maintain the weight I feel I can stay on the topamax.
Avatar n tn If this weight is correct as written, his weight is below the 3rd percentile and his height is just below the 90th percentile for his age. His stature is on the taller side, however, he is underweight for his age and most look even thinner due to his height.
Avatar m tn From your measurements, his weight is on the 75th percentile and his height is above the 95th percentile for his age. His weight is normal and his height, as you stated, is above normal. Height is usually genetic. Are there tall males in the family? His weight may appear thin due to his tall stature. If he is a poor eater, suggest a daily children chewable multi-vitamin. All supplement drinks give children all needed nutrients for growth and weight gain.
7757724 tn?1396283186 Well I think they are pretty much in the same percentile although her head size is in the 60th percentile lol
Avatar m tn 1) Your genetic history and your normal hormones required for growth 2) Proper balanced diet with enough protein and calcium during growing age with active life style. Take care!
Avatar f tn At my 24 appt my fundal height was measuring 32 as well, and I am having twins. Your doc may want to do another ultrasound or something, and who knows, maybe you do have a baby hiding!
Avatar m tn His weight is between the 25-50th percentile and his height on the 10th percentile for his age which is normal. Other than his father, are there other males that have shorter stature? He is only 6 years and when he hits puberty (around 13years); he may surprise everyone and grow to his father's height. You do not know at this stage. Just make sure he is eating 1800 calories a day so that he does grow.
Avatar f tn Hi, im 20 years old and way 170lb at 5ft2in. What is the perfect weight for my height and age?
Avatar n tn Her weight is just below the 25th percentile and her height is below the 5th percentile for her age. Her weight-for-stature is between 50-75th percentile. She may just be petite due to genetics. If she had been steadily growing, no matter how slowly, then she is fine and just has a small stature.
Avatar f tn His weight is just below the 75th percentile and his height is just below the 50th percentile for his age which indicates he is normal. As a guideline for a 12 month old child should eat the following: Dairy 3 feedings a day – Milk (4oz), cheese (½ oz), yogurt (½ cup), or cottage cheese (¼ cup). Starch 4 feedings a day – Cereal (¼ cup), pasta (¼ cup), rice (¼ cup), bread (½ slice), or crackers (2).
Avatar f tn Her weight is between the 90-95th percentile and her height is on the 50th percentile which indicates she is normal for her age and not overweight. Her weight is still within the growth chart. She is in puberty now and will be physically changing. As she gets older she may loss it. Suggest dancing which is fun and will help to lose the weight.
187316 tn?1386360282 Last month she was 12lbs5oz and her next appointment for 4 months isn't until Tuesday. I mean weight wise she seems to fill out the clothes and she looks really chunky... its just height wise its like everything is too long.
Avatar n tn His weight is just above the 25th percentile and his height is between the 90-95th percentile for his age which indicates he is within the growth chart and normal for his age.
Avatar m tn We took him to see his general practitioner, who after weighing him and asking him about his diet concluded that he was still growing. He weighs 49 Kgs and has weighed so since last year. Could his light weight and mediocre height mean he's still growing. He's had a long history of being very thin, despite a large appetite and a high protein diet. If you have any answers, please send them as soon as possible, Thank you.
Avatar m tn Both his weight and height are below the 5th percentile for his age which indicates he is underweight. If your family has small stature (genetic), then he may be in a lower normal weight/height.
Avatar n tn I would definitely ask your pediatrician to have her seen by a pediatric endocrinologist, it may indeed be early puberty, the dheas is a hormone that the adrenal gland makes and is a sign of early but almost normal variation of the adrenal gland maturation process that can occur in this age range in some kids.
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?
1528695 tn?1360585920 Just like hannahthompson our little one has thunder thighs (she's in the 90th %for weight, 25th% for height) so she upsized sooner than normal.
Avatar f tn She is tall for her age and her weight is normal for her age. She appears thin due to being taller for her weight and age. As long as they have steadily increased in weight and height, over the years, even if the increases have been in small increments you should not be concerned.
Avatar n tn 7in tall and 44kg is her weight, my daughter is very heath since her birth with no major health problems, her consultant pediatric says that she is growing normally and she has a normal height as per age, but there are many speculations about the growth once the period starts, it is said that the child will stop growing tall after the period’s starts. Is it true? Please advise me whether I should consult any specialist. My height is 5ft.1in and my husband is 5ft.7in.
Avatar m tn Just go by what your healthy weight should be, if you're in that healthy weight range for your height and age then your thigh size are most llikely normal.
1168369 tn?1263219300 For his age his weight and height are below ‘normal’, however, he was born premature and still needs to 'catch' up. As a guideline for a 15-24 month old child should eat the following: Dairy 4 feedings a day – Milk (4oz), cheese (½ oz), yogurt (½ cup), or cottage cheese (¼ cup). Starch 4 feedings a day – Cereal (¼ cup), pasta (¼ cup), rice (¼ cup), bread (½ slice), or crackers (2).
Avatar f tn Both her weight and height are just below the 5th percentile for her age. She has been through a lot for her young age. Based on her weight / age, she should be consuming approximately 1600-1800 calories per day as recommended the following: Fruits (limit fruit juices) = 1.5 cups; Vegetables 2.5 cups; Grains (cereals, breads) = 6oz equivalents; Meat & beans = 5oz equivalents; Dairy products (milk, yogurt) = 3 cups; Oils = 5 tsp; Additional calories to be used discretionary = 195.
Avatar n tn His weight is just above the 5th percentile and his height is on the 10th percentile for his age. His is within the growth chart which indicates he is normal for his age. He is going into puberty and will be growing. Males can grow until the early 20's. Genetics plays a part in stature. Are the males in the family on the smaller side?
