If my son is age 12 but has a bone age of one year behind (taken about 5 years ago) would I use age 11 in one of the height calculators?
Not necessarily: A bone age of 1 year behind from 5 years ago could very well have changed by now--could be that the bone age has caught up and now he is a bone age of 12, not 11. Or maybe his bone age is even ahead and he is 13, not 12. You should use his chronological age, 12. And if you are still worried about his height, go see an endocrinologist and have another bone age and workup done. ...Read more
I am 19 yrs old. I am very much overweight for my age and height I wanna lose weight but I can't resist food and over indulge usually. Help..
Dietitian/wt watcher: If you can't resist food, there almost no chance you're going to be able to lose weight consistently. See doc to rule out other problems. A good doctor, good dietitian, good program such as weight watchers may help. Also counseling can be beneficial. There are weight loss drugs, but only work while you're taking them. Avoid health food store stuff as it doesn't work. Surgery? Good luck. ...Read more
29/f. A little overweight for my age and height. My resting heart rate is always between 105-115 this is extremely high. What could be the cause?
Tachycardia: Newly evident rapid heart rates need evaluation to exclude organic pathology which can be myriad eg thyrotoxicosis, anemia, infections, pulmonary disorder, cardiac disorder et cetera. In the absence of organic underlying pathology it frequently is a reflection of cardiopulmonary deconditioning. Please check in with a local health care provider or via the concierge at this website. ...Read more

No period. My weight is 57 kg height is 5 feet 2 inch age is 24.Is this overweight. Did I have pcos. I increase 12kg weight from 9 month. Is it gud or bad?
You decide: The "ideal weight" stuff is sub-science. If you're able to keep up with your athletic peers and like how you look, it's probably all good. I can't diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome at a distance (are your periods okay?), but the mainstay of treatment is aerobic fitness / conditioning. It's in your hands. Good luck. ...Read more

A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Depends on genetics: Your adult height is largely determined by genetic factors. Take the average of your parents heights and add two inches since you are a boy.

Maybe, maybe not: It is often believed obese women have less osteoporosis than normal weight or thin women. Fat cells can make estrogen-type hormones which may slow bone loss, and can make androgen-type hormones which may add more bone mass. Some researchers feel obesity decreases bone density, compared to large non-obese women of similar weight. Leptins (hormones involved in obesity) may also worsen bone density. ...Read more

Hard to say: Since appropriate weight is quantified based on weight/height, without a height, it is not easy to give you an answer.
