What's a healthy weight for height and age - 5 year old girl?

What's a healthy weight for height and age - 5 year old girl?

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

Endocrine: Recently growth hormone has been approved for use in pediatric patients with growth potential and short stature. You need to consult with your pediatrician to see bone age--- ie wrist x ray will reveal that. If the growth plates not fused yet--get referral to a pediatric endocrinologist for further evaluation and management. ...Read more

Test results: The doctor should review the test results and x-rays with you and your child. Depending on the results, they may recommend therapy with growth or other hormones or just watchful waiting/close followup. It depends on the growth of your child to this point and results ...Read more

I have a 44lb 3foot 10inch 5 year old son who I think is small. Is this a good hight weight combo?

I have a 44lb 3foot 10inch 5 year old son who I think is small. Is this a good hight weight combo?

Yes: If you plot his height and weight on a chart you will find he is in the 50th percentile in weight and maybe 90th percentile in height. There is nothing about that which raises any red flags. Hopefully the pediatrician has been plotting his growth and will let you see how he how he has been progressing and i would check with them. ...Read more

My five years old girl looks skiny and loses weight easily too.Is there anyway to improve the situation?

My five years old girl looks skiny and loses weight easily too.Is there anyway  to improve the situation?

Better nutrition: First, check a growth chart. She may be normal. If her weight is too low for her height, improve her calorie intake. She should drink whole milk and avoid low calorie/empty calorie drinks such as soda and juice. There are nutritional supplements but it is best to give her a well balanced diet. ...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 more

Iam 16.5 year old but iam look like 12 or 13 years boy ..My height is 5'4.5 does my height increase further ..

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

See your doctor: Children don't usually lose weight. Losing weight can be a sign of significant illness in most children. If he has actually lost weight, without vomiting or diarrhea, please have him seen by his doctor to find out what could be causing this. ...Read more
