Average weight: The 50% percentile for a girl that is 4 ft 11 inches is between 72.8 pounds and 81.4 pounds. But remember this is the 50% therefore 50% of girls your age are above this range and 50% of girl your age are below this range. So I wouldn't be overly concerned with the number.

Is a 10 yr. old female weighing 100.8 lbs. an 4ft. 11in. Average weight or overweight?  And what are the ratios for both  Average and underweight?

Healthy weight: Appropriate weights are calculated as your body-mass-index. The appropriate BMI is age dependent.

At this age you are also growing in height and should not be trying to lose weight. Instead, make healthy eating to keep weight stable as you grow into it. ...Read more

How do I get a 10 year old boy with aspergers syndrome to eat healthy foods?

Provide good food : Aspies have very narrowed interests that they defend with awesome pedantism. Try to provide nutritious foods within their parameters.

10 year old boy is not anemic,normal blood work but high esr at 30? What causes  it? Should we be concerned? What other tests shall we ask the doctor?

Stop worrying: ESR is a famously unreliable test, useful only when it's quite far from the reference range and in a few clinical settings. If Junior seems well, I wouldn't even have ordered it. If this was my own son, I wouldn't give this a second thought. Junior's lucky to have caring parents like you. ...Read more

Expert Assessment!: This is one question that you'd definitely want answered by an expert who could get a detailed developmental history of your son & who could assess him in person.

I'd recommend consulting w/ a neuro-developmental behavior specialist - like a child neuropsychologist or child psychiatrist. ...Read more
