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

Is it okay for a child donate a kidney to their parent?

Is it okay for a child donate a kidney to their parent?

In fact, I think it is common for close relatives with the correct tissue match to donate to other relatives. ...Read more
