How much should an 11 year old weigh if she's 5 feet tall?

How much should an 11 year old weigh if she's 5 feet tall?

108 pounds: She is 90th percentile for height right now, 90th percentile for weight would be around 108 pounds. I rounded down a pound to 108 because our current growth curves in the us reflect a 30% ish obesity rate so they skew north on the top percentiles. Take a look at the curve here... http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/data/set2clinical/cj41c072.pdf ...Read more

Is 600 mg of vancomycin every 6 hours appropriate for an 11 year old weighing 42 kg then increased to 750 mg every 6 hours then 1250 mg every 6 hrs?

Is 600 mg of vancomycin every 6 hours appropriate for an 11 year old weighing 42 kg then increased to 750 mg every 6 hours then 1250 mg every 6 hrs?

No: 5000mg of vancomycin per day is usually way too much for someone weighing 42kg. Blood levels can help to determine the correct dose, and I suppose under unusual circumstances, that high a dose might be required. But I would ask about the drug levels and why such a high dose is being used. ...Read more

Hi! I'm an eleven year old who is 5 feet 1 inch and I weigh 95 lbs. Should I go on a diet?

Healthy lifestyle: Your BMI is normal for age at 17.9. A "diet" implies it is something you will do for a while then go back to your old ways. It would be a good idea for anyone regardless of age or weight to focus on a well balanced plan, with minimal simple sugars, and to keep active.

Is it safe for an 11 year old who weighs 81lbs to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and melatonin every night as a sleep aid together?

Is it safe for an 11 year old who weighs 81lbs to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and melatonin every night as a sleep aid together?

Yes and no: The answer to your question is yes it is safe. The next question that comes to my mind though, is why she needs a sleep aid every night at age 11. If she has a type of sleep initiation disorder,have behavioral interventions with her bedtime routine been tried, including no computer or LED screen time for two hours prior to bed? Will meditation and relaxation techniques help rather than chronic med ...Read more

My almost 11 year old daughter weighs 145 is that ok?

My almost 11 year old daughter weighs 145 is that ok?

No: Your daughter is obese. Without her height, I cannot tell you exactly how overweight, but unless she is over six feet tall 145 pounds is way too much. You both need to do drastic changes to your lifestyle. You should never buy soda, juice, junk food or white bread. What she has available to her will set her choices. She also needs to start a routine of exercise - suggest starting with daily walk. ...Read more
