Sir I am 19 year old boy and am 5 ' 8" inches tall. Can I increase my height 3- 4 inches taller average height calculator showd me 174cm is itposble?

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

Me and my boyfriend are trying to make a baby, but it's hard for me to tell when I am fertile using a ovulation calculator is hard as well?

You can learn: There are a few ways to help: basal body temperature charting, monitoring your vaginal mucus patterns, strictly monitoring your periods to calculate most likely ovulation time, using urine test strips for luteinizing hormone. Combining at least three of these and carefully keeping your records for at least 6-12 months can help you to best predict the most likely time to get pregnant. ...Read more

I used two calculators to find my target heart rate, with different results. One used my resting heart rate. Which should I use for losing weight?

I used two calculators to find my target heart rate, with different results. One used my resting heart rate. Which should I use for losing weight?

No magic number: There's no perfect number. Here a good rule of thumb. Subtract your age from 220. This is your maximum predicted heart rate. Multiple by 60%. This is your recommended target heart rate. Example: age 44. 220-44=176. 0.6x 176=105. 105 is your target. Remember: you'll lose more weight by reducing your intake than by trying to burn it up. Any exercise at any heart rate is beneficial for dieters. ...Read more

What should my calorie intake be to lose weight? My first Doctor said 1200 but calculators say 2100. 310lbs 5'3" female 22 years old. Thank you!

What should my calorie intake be to lose weight? My first Doctor said 1200 but calculators say 2100. 310lbs 5'3" female 22 years old. Thank you!

It depends: Do you want to sustain your weight or lose weight? It may be best to consider weight loss since a 5'3" frame will have diffculty sustaining that weight over time without joint damage. Your calorie recommendations are extremes on a spectrum. I would suggest starting at 2500 carefullly counted for 2 months are drop by 100 every 2 months until you get to 1500. Return to 1800 when at goal weight. ...Read more

Tough word - normal: Being thin and tall is perfectly fine if the child is growing along their growth curves normally. Make sure your pediatrician or FP doctor is measuring height and weight and plotting them on a growth curve. If the baby odd changing percentiles over time, you may need to intervene with nutritional or medical help. Check with your doctor on this! ...Read more

You get to choose: We are a free people living in a free country, so you get to choose. The number is 18 if you choose to use only whole numbers. The number is 18.0 if you choose to have one number after the decimal. The number is 17.97 if you choose to have 2 numbers after the decimal. They are all the same number, but it's your choice. ...Read more

If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

What is the difference in GFR calculators? Some tell me my egfr is 59 and some tell me its 62?

Difference in GFR: The answer to you question is that the GFR calculators give an estimated, not an actual, gfr. The calculation used to estimate the GFR is based on a person's age, sex, race, height and weight. The difference in your estimated GFR levels is about 5%, perhaps your weight was different. The only way to know what your real GFR is is to have a doctor order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. ...Read more
