My child is 12 years old. He has done a  creatinine  blood test and got a low result = 0.45. Is this of any significance? Thank you

He's healthy: As mentioned, creatinine is a substance the kidneys are supposed to filter, it's a byproduct and should be very low in the blood stream. Normal values are generally based on an average for what adults would have, and children's kidneys are healthy and much more efficient. For lab tests in children, ignore the "normals" and ask your pediatrician for an interpretation. ...Read more

Though my daughter is 14 years she has the bone age of a 12 year old .How many more inches can she grow?

Hard to know: Bone age can be lower than regular age for many reasons. One important aspect is how your daughter is progressing through puberty- I assume since you know the bone age that your doctor has been looking into puberty or height issues.. Adult height is based on taking both Mom and Dad's height and doing a calculation that I have provided- I would ask your doctor about your concerns ...Read more

Can my boy live normally without pituitary gland, though he it 12 years old and he is still a kid not going through fertility. And what aspects i shou?

Pituitary deficiency: Your son should be under the care of an endocrinoloogist, who can provide him with growth hormone injections, thyroid and cortisol supplements if needed, and can give male hormone injections to stimulate puberty. Average onset of puberty for boys is age 12, but can be 2-3 years later, so optimize height before starting, as growth plates close after 3-4 year of male hormone. Good health is poss. ...Read more

My child is 12 years old and he just started wearing glasses with about 225 degrees for both eyes ,can his eyesight improve?

No, glasses improve: vision, but do not correct the underlying eye focus problem, which is related to a mismatch of the depth of the eye and the shape of the lens. At this age, myopia is the most common cause, and often tends to worsen at puberty. ...Read more

Had tapeworm on brain when i was 12 years old and now 30 and can't memorize things specially math is it a side effect from what i had d a child?

Possibly: If you had neuro-cysticercosis (the larvae of tapeworm that settles in the brain) and you were not treated, that can cause damage to the brain. It depends on how severe the infestation was, whether you were treated or not and what part of the brain is affected. This condition can also cause a form of epilepsy that can also affect memory. A ct scan of the brain can help answer these questions. ...Read more
