Weight & height chart for men over 80?

No such thing: Even for young adults, these are subscience. At any adult age, the best weight is what looks and feels right to the person and enables them to do the things they enjoy -- hopefully including some fitness activities. An older person needs adequate muscle but fat isn't an asset. Don't target a number, target a level of fitness and function. ...Read more

Is there a height to weight to age chart for men?

Is there a height to weight to age chart for men?

The BMI chart: Age is only used for pediatric/youg adults, often calculated to age 18 or so. After this point, we only use height and wt to determine healthy vs not-healthy-wt ranges for both men and women. It is a rough estimate and provide you a guide to keep "ideal body wt" for better health. If you have specific concern about your wt/height vs age (we shrink in height with age), consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

If the doctor says your child is overweight please take it seriously. Work on exercise ; eating habits. ...Read more

When do men typically stop growing in height?

16-20 years: Most men finish their height growth by age 20 years. Rarely, there may be growth after that, & often growth is over before then. Seeing an x-ray of growth plates of bones (so called "bone age") can give a good estimate of the likelihood of future growth potential. Genetics plays a major role here, so knowing when related males finished their growth would help in predicting one's ultimate height. ...Read more

My baby is in 75% percentile height and 25percentile weight.6 month old boy.17 lb at and 27.5 inch height. Is it normal?

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

2 month old dropped from 87th-95th percentile for height to 15th. Has remained 50th percentile for weight, why such a drop in height?

Measurement error: Length in infants is a difficult measurement to replicate. Baby's length is dependent upon how tense/relaxed he is. Think how he pulls his legs up when he cries. If 1st length was while asleep and 2nd while awake and resisting, he'll appear shorter. Staff may fail to fully stretch legs, head may move from starting point. Discuss with dr, but unlikely to be a concern. ...Read more

My nephew is in the 2nd percentile for height at one year but always been short.42nd percentile for weight. Could he have a growth issue? Dwarfism?

Genetic Height?: The key here is his parents heights. Take the average of his parents height, and add 2 for a boy. Where does this fall? Is it at the low end? Another factor is both parents puberty patterns. Were they late bloomers? This can be another cause. Should be evaluated at his one year checkup! ...Read more

My 9 month old son's weight and height is in the 18th percentile but his head is in the 67th. Should I be concerned that his head is so much larger?

My 9 month old son's weight and height is in the 18th percentile but his head is in the 67th. Should I be concerned that his head is so much larger?

Yes & no: The most common reason for a big head size is it is inherited as a dominant trait from a parent. If your kids developmental progress is normal & the head has always been on the large side i'd just watch it. If the head is growing faster than the body & increased from lower to higher percentiles i'd have a study done. ...Read more

My 18mo son is always on the lower end of percentiles, except head circumference. Is this an indication of his future height and weight?

Hard to say: The best predictor of how a male is growing and where they will end up is their parents. Final height is expected to be the average height of the parents plus 2.5 inches. Body frame and muscularity also tracks as a blend of both parents, with more features contributed by the parent of the same sex.Since I do not have any details, the answer must remain very general. ...Read more

Is there any hormonal relation between hair growth of body and the height or weight of men?

Is there any hormonal relation between hair growth of body and the height or weight of men?

Not really, but?: Not really, but in the case of males, obesity increases Estradiol levels, which can suppress testosterone. Hair growth diminshes. In women who have torso obesity, free testosterone levels are higher, and women can experience more hair growth.

My 13 month old son has a big belly. He's quite tall, and still higher percentile for height than weight. No other symptoms. Any reason for concern?

Baby belly: Most toddlers have protruding abdomens. The bowel takes up space, abdominal core muscle are not well developed yet and there is lordosis. If asymmetry, mass, pain on palpation or poor eating/ diarrhea /constipation/urine issues that is concerning. F/u/ doc. Do not worry

Our 8 yr old is 35th percentile for height, 3rd percent for weight, and overall healthy. Should we restrict junk food intake or let her eat anything?

Junk food?: No medical professional in his/her right mind is going to recommend junk food...
If both (parents) are on the small side, children are likely to be so as well.
It is a plus that she can eat anything because of her body size, but I would increase nutritious foods before allowing junk food---which is ok once in awhile.
Best of all, check with your doc who has been seeing your child over the years. ...Read more

Almost 5 Yo DD is very short, fit & active. I am short but hubby and others in family have good height. She is < 3 percentile. Growth Hormone Therapy?

Hard to speculate: About 3% of the normal kids fall in that range of height and would not benefit from growth hormone.A first step would be to have an x-ray done of her wrist/hand. Growth centers in those bones can reveal a bone maturity. A reading suggesting 5 or later would suggest she is genetically short. A reading of 4, just a late bloomer, 3 or earlier would warrant blood studies of her hormones. Start with her doc ...Read more

Probably fine: It's fine for an infant to have a large head, as long as it stays at a fairly constant percentile. It's only when heads grow or shrink too quickly that the child should be evaluated further. Make sure to talk with ur baby's pediatrician if u r concerned. ...Read more
