Specializes in Pediatrics

Varies: The 10-85% range for 5'8" /19 in a female is 122-171 based on published CDC guidelines & body mass index. The 50% point for ht/age is 142 with 25-75% range 130-159. Such standards assume average muscle mass/age and are not the only means for determining proper weight for individuals.
