Trend: Healthy growth in a child is when they gain age appropriate cm/inches and weight on an annualized basis. Bmi and waist circumference (more important) help to determine if the proportions are within age appropriate goals. Please see this website: http://www.Cdc.Gov/growthcharts/charts.Htm. ...Read more

My son has a blood pressure of 150/111, he is twenty five years old. What can we do to help with his headache? His height is 5'6, his weighs 218lbs.
Have : Have you repeated the blood pressure to make sure the value you got was accurate? If this is a severe headache, i recomend that you take him to the emergency room. I can not tell by reading this if he has chronic hypertension. I don't know if his blood pressure is causing his headache or if his headache is so severe, that it is causing his blood pressure to rise. In general blood pressure reading of 180 or higher for the top number (systolic pressure) and 110 on the bottom or higher (diastolic pressure) is pretty significant. Since there isn't much information here, i recommend a prudent approach and that you take him to the emergency room so that he can be checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe. Maybe not.: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. One can ask the pediatrician about height, at a check-up or an extra office visit. ...Read more
