I am a teenager my height is 159cm and my weight is 55kg so am I overweight?

I am a teenager my height is 159cm and my weight is 55kg so am I overweight?

Growth chart eval.: Your body mass index which is a ratio of the weight to height is normal. Since I don't know your exact age, your percentiles on the growth curve can not be plotted. Since your body mass index is normal, it is unlikely that your are overweight. Avoiding junk food, soda and fried foods, exercising daily and following up with your physician is advised. I hope this helps.

Average height and weight for 1u7 year old teenager in terms of kilograms?

Average height and weight for 1u7 year old teenager in terms of kilograms?

"Average" depends: "Average" varies from one region to another, and on average, American children may be a bit bigger than some countries. I have attached a growth chart depicting "average" or 50th percentile for a 17 year old girl as about 55kg. I see you live in India, and I do not have a growth chart specifically for you. But you may use this chart as a reference if it's helpful. See your doc if you're concerned!

I am a 16 year old female. I am very active and I want to calculate my BMI but for a highly active teenager. Height: 5.6" weight: 155 age: 16 years ol?

Fair: Your bmi is 25 kg/m2 and considered slightly overweight. However it is more important to measure the waist line size which should be much less than 35 inch in a female of your age. Do note that if you are somewhat muscular, the bmi may well be normal.

See comment: You are still young, there is a chance there will be growth. Asian generally have a smaller built and frame hence their organ is smaller Smaller compared to what standard? If you have a question and can afford it see a urologist

How many hours of sleep should a teenager get if they want their maximum height potential?

How many hours of sleep should a teenager get if they want their maximum height potential?

No less than 9: The growing teen is faced with many choices but needs to take care of his/her sleep if they are to function well. While growing, no less than 9 hours of sleep/24hrs is needed. After their linear growth has stopped, they can sometimes get by on 8. Some will need more based on sports participation or heavy study. Events like sleep walking and sleep talking are evidence they're sleep deprived.

Does regular consumption of extra animal protein by a healthy vegetarian teenager change his adult height?

Does regular consumption of extra animal protein by a healthy vegetarian teenager change his adult height?

No: If a teenager is normal and healthy, eating a balanced vegetarian diet with a variety of protein, fat, and carbohydrate sources, he will achieve his predestined adult height. He should be sure to get enough calcium and vitamin d. Eating additional protein from animals, fish, eggs, plants, or the vitamin store, will not affect his adult height.

I'm a 17 yr old teenager n I want build lean muscular body. I practice push ups, pull ups, sit ups n Hindu dips. Doing Hindu dips decreases height?

No: Hindu dips will not decrease your height. You are doing many of the right things to have a healthy boy. Consider adding an aerobic exercise like walking, running, biking or swimming 30-60 minutes a day to your exercise plan. Good health to you.

Hi. I'm of 16 year old teenager and my height is 5 feet 2 inches. My menstrual cycle started 4 yrs ago. Now I want to increase my ht. Can I grow?

Hi. I'm of 16 year old teenager and my height is 5 feet 2 inches. My menstrual cycle started 4 yrs ago. Now I want to increase my ht. Can I grow?

Unlikely to happen: Women will usually put on about 2-3 inches after their first menses and stop. (about 2 yrs after 1st cycle) The hormones that pushed you to develop and start your cycles also signal the growth centers to finish up. An x-ray of your wrist/hand can be examined for open growth centers. Once the growth centers close you are fininhed growing taller.

Most common weight for 5'1 teenager?

Most common weight for 5'1 teenager?

Quite a variance.: Go to the website: http://www. Cdc. Gov/growthcharts/charts. Htm. Then click through the menu to the left choosing boy or girl & appropriate age grouping. Look at wide variation of normals for a specific age! Wow! Anything between the 5th percentile and 95th percentile is considered normal. However, multiple growth points over multiple years are much more helpful. See your md if there are concerns.

Can you please tell me the mean weight of a teenager?

Too broad a question: The teens span 8 years & no number is right for all 8 or those in between. The appropriate weight for height & age are available in graph form from the cdc. To find a specific listing, go to the site, pick a gender, and prick out a chart. Then match the chart listing by stature to the same percentage by weight. Www. Cdc. Gov/growthcharts.

I am a teenager, thin and I eat a lot but don't gain much weight. Is this normal?

I am a teenager, thin and I eat a lot but don't gain much weight. Is this normal?

Yes it can be normal: Healthy eating habits as a teen are extremely important for growth and development now and into adulthood. Being able to eat a lot and remain thin is a good thing, but you want to be sure what you are eating is healthy. Schedule an annual evaluation with your pediatrician to go over your growth chart, diet, exercise habits, etc to determine if further evaluation is needed.

Protein More Calorie: Increase your protein intake. Rather than having one chicken breast have two with lunch or dinner. Increase protein containing foods like peanut butter and nuts, Try an extra protein shake added once to twice a day. Thanks for taking such an active role in your health!
