Why trace elements ?: A single height & weight are not adequate background information upon which to make any recommendation.This must be put in context with the ht/wt of the parents, the past measurements of the kid, the kids overall health. The cited numbers are in the 5-10% range of the general population on CDC growth charts. Which means that by themselves, they are absolutely normal for 5-10% of the population.
