Short teenage girl 104 lbs, just told by director to lose as much weight as possible in next month. asian american, cravings salt+sugar. Please help. ?

104 lb sounds ok: We don't tell 104 lb teen girls to lose weight unless there is a very special reason. For an average-height girl, all the way down to a short girl of 4' 10" or 4' 11", 104 lb is a normal weight. For short girls just under 5 feet tall, 95-105 lb should be fine. Also, if a girl is still growing taller, she can keep her current weight steady and just grow into her weight (instead of losing weight). ...Read more

What food should I start feeding my 6 monthes baby girl?? Can I add for her food some salt and sugar?

What food should I start feeding my 6 monthes baby girl?? Can I add for her food some salt and sugar?

Solid food: You can start cereal, first. Rice, oat or barley. After this, fruits and vegetables. Some say veg before fruit, but it really doesn't matter. One new food every 3-5 days, to make sure baby doesn't have any reactions. Baby needs to be able to hold head up, and open her mouth when food is offered. No added sugar or salt, please. She will get it soon enough, without adding to food, now. ...Read more

Depends: Hi. There are different normal ranges for glucose for fasting and for post-challenge (similar to after a meal, but the "challenge" glucose is 75 grams liquid glucose). 124 mg/dl is not normal for fasting, but would be normal after a meal (or 75 gram glucose challenge).

Is 124.2 mg/dl a normal blood sugar level for a 17 years old girl after a meal for after 3 hours ?

Is 124.2 mg/dl a normal blood sugar level for a 17 years old girl after a meal for after 3 hours ?

Probably normal: Hi. There aren't diagnostic criteria for normal sugar 3 hours after a mixed meal that I'm aware of, but I'd say that seems pretty much normal. Variables would be how much carb and fat were in the mixed meal; they influence how much and how quickly sugar will appear in the blood. If you're worried, talk with your doc about doing a 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test. Good luck! ...Read more
