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.

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

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 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.

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

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

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

I want to introduce gh injection iam 16.5 year old my height is 5'4 is there any side effects of hormone. Please suggeste iam so worry.

Loss of money: There is no evidence that giving growth hormone to a normal (not deficient or resistant) person would gain more height.They might reach their final height sooner, but not add any more. If you are truly deficient, the process should be monitored by a doc with experience in dosing and management. They can manage and explain any side effects. ...Read more

Iam 16.5 year old boy my heignt is 5'4. I want to increase my height my parents height is normal not heighted. Can growth hormone increase my height?

Unlikely to happen: Growth centers in long bones determine how tall you can grow. Most growth centers will close at 16-17. If your growth centers are open, a balanced diet/rest ; healthy physical activity will support good growth and gh injections would only get you to your expected genetic height faster, not add extra. ...Read more

Does blood in stool cause weight loss in 5 year old boy?

Does blood in stool cause weight loss in 5 year old boy?

Need evaluation: Blood in stool should be evaluated, unless it is scant and follows after a large, constipated stool, which is likely to give a small tear or fissure. Short term weight loss in a 5 year old can occur with acute illness like the flu, but if accompanied by blood in the stool, it implies some type of colitis, and this should be evaluated. ...Read more

My 5 year old woke up this morning with extremely sore calf muscles and is unable to put any weight on them - so unable to walk. He has been unwell recently with a temp but seemed to be fully recovered yesterday and feels fine otherwise.

My 5 year old woke up this morning with extremely sore calf muscles and is unable to put any weight on them - so unable to walk. He has been unwell recently with a temp but seemed to be fully recovered yesterday and feels fine otherwise.

This happens: This is a less known but common finding in influenza B infections or in any flu like illness that moves into that muscle group. If it is a simple flu, it would gradually improve over days/weeks. It can be a localized muscle inflammation from another agent & a review of the kids history/exam and testing is needed to sort out this issue. ...Read more

Do a 5 yr-old exam,: After doing the 5-year-old routine check-up, the doctor can talk about a healthy diet. That means minimal sugars, less white breads (refined flour), and aiming for natural unprocessed foods. With young kids, the mildly overweight ones can "grow into" their weight if they stay on a proper diet. ...Read more

My 5yo has grown in height great and weight great. But her feet have been the same size for over a year. If she's growing then why not her feet?

Normal growth: Ask your pediatrician to review your child's height and weight. Feet are a bit different and at 5, be grateful that she doesn't need new shoes as frequently as she will in a few years. Feet don't have to grow very much. ...Read more

I am a male aged 53 years and my wife is 38 years old. We have a kid which is five years old. We would like to have a another baby. Is it possible?

Absolutely!: You most likely have viable sperm still. You have already proven that you can do it by having your 5yo. The fact that your wife is still in her 30s is great, because the risks of pregnancy and baby-trouble in 40yo mothers is much greater. I would say, "go for it! ". ...Read more
