You should genetically end up here, plus or minus two inches. If you fall below that threshold, see an endocrine doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

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

Why are so many babies near 90th percentile?

Why are so many babies near 90th percentile?

They aren't: It depends what 90th percentile you are talking about. If it is weight, it might be because the norms are based on data from years ago when there was not as much obesity as there is now. By definition 90 percentile means that only 10% of kids are bigger, taller than the 90th percentile. ...Read more

Do babies age to weight/length percentiles project to their potential adult size... Or is it only applicable to their babyhood?

Do babies age to weight/length percentiles project to their potential adult size... Or is it only applicable to their babyhood?

Growth: Potential adult height depends mostly on family height. One rough calculation: mid parental height (+) 1 inch for boy and (-) 1 inch for girls. Infants and young children temporarily loose weight with slowness of growth when they have minor illnesses, and catches up soon after recovery. The child who has been always overfeed and big has seen to be overweight as adults. ...Read more

A better way is to use over the counter ovulation prediction kits which will help you know when exactly you are ovulating and time intercourse ...Read more
