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?

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

So I grow an large about of hair on my face and I'm currently overweight for my age and height. I want to know if I could possibly have PCOS.?

See an appropriate D: You fail to describe your menstrual experience. PCOS usually involves irregular or absent menstrual bleeding as well as facial hair, loss of scalp hair, acne, obesity, acanthosis nigricans, etc. An endocrinologist, especially a GYN endocrinologist, is a good way to go. You should diet + exercise to slim down. You may be a candidate for metformin and/or spironolactone. Do not smoke. ...Read more

I have an active 7 year old boy who is 4 ft 1 in and weighs 64 lbs. Is he overweight for his age and height?

Big for age not obes: Your son is growing as fast as my son. If you fit him on a growth chart he will be at 95th percentile for weight and about 90th percentile for height. Which means he has outgrown 90% of boys his age. Follow this link for growth chart: http://www. Cdc. Gov/growthcharts/data/set1clinical/cj41l021.Pdf. Note that your child's bmi is 18.7 which is normal his weight matches his height! ...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

I am quite over weight (110 kg) as per my age and height also my routine is very busy so can't maintain proper diet and exercise, what should I do?

Not a lot: If you cannot maintain a diet and exercise that will promote weight loss, there is not much you can do. Nowadays, people are expecting quick fixes for virtually everything - that's not happening with obesity. Even bariatric surgery will fail if you don't maintain healthy diet. ...Read more

I am over weight. What dieting schedule I follow? Height 172cm weight 79 kg. Age 25yrs

See Dr. And eat less: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

I am a teenager my height is 159cm and my weight is 55kg so am I overweight?

Growth chart eval.: Your body mass index which is a ratio of the weight to height is normal. Since I don't know your exact age, your percentiles on the growth curve can not be plotted. Since your body mass index is normal, it is unlikely that your are overweight. Avoiding junk food, soda and fried foods, exercising daily and following up with your physician is advised.
I hope this helps. ...Read more

I am overweight for my height. Does this mean I am less likely to get osteoporosis?

I am overweight for my height. Does this mean I am less likely to get osteoporosis?

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

I'm 17 years old, quite short don't know my height really, weight 7.1stone, am I overweight?

Hard to say: Since appropriate weight is quantified based on weight/height, without a height, it is not easy to give you an answer. Most consider 5 feet (1.5m) short for a woman and 7.1 stone (99.4 lb) would give you a Body Mass Index of 19.5 which would be considered normal for that height. ...Read more
