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

What is the average weight of a tall 11 year old or how much should a tall 11 year old weigh?

What is the average weight of a tall 11 year old or how much should a tall 11 year old weigh?

See below: The range within the 5% to 95% in 11 yo us girls is from about 60 to 120 lbs. The 50% is at about 85 lbs. So your height, if taller will likely lend to more weight, but all is variable. If concerned, go see your pediatrician. ...Read more

How much should a 4ft 5in 11 year old weigh?

How much should a 4ft 5in 11 year old weigh?

Depends . . .: We use height-weight charts to plot growth curves. As long as a child follows a curve, then s/he is growing appropriately. However, if s/he crosses a curve or two, then we worry. For any specific age, height & weight, check out http://nccd.cdc.gov/dnpabmi/Calculator.aspx for the CDC's calculator for BMI (body mass index) percentile for use in children & teens. ...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

How much is a "5'1" eleven year old supposed to weigh?

Depends: There is a wide range of normal weights for pre-teens. The most important thing is to look at the growth chart and see how she's been growing over the years. If she is growing consistently, and has a normal bmi (body mass index), the weight may be normal for her. A yearly well check is the best way to make sure your child's growth is good. ...Read more
