Is Birth Length An Indicator Of Adult Height
No: Not necessarily, birth lengths aren't very accurate due to newborns being wiggly! As your baby gets older, your doctor will track their growth and the graphs will give you a better estimate of how tall he'll be.See 1 more doctor answer
No: This is one I have never heard before, but I can tell you that it is very hard to predict adult height, especially at birth. The best way to "estimate" adult height is still based on the parents' heights and family history. Nutrition also plays a big role in ultimate adult height, as does the timing of puberty.See 1 more doctor answer
In what way would birth control pills affect a woman's FSH and lh? Are they effective indicators when on bc?
Suppressed: LH and FSH levels are usually suppressed by the OCP. That how it suppresses ovulation and gives you birth control. Checking levels, however, are of little benefit. If the levels are not surprised, the pill does other things to prevent pregnancy, like altering cervical mucous and endometrial growth.
Is there anyway to assess how well my cardiovascular system is responding to the estrogen in my birth control? Is blood-pressure a reliable indicator?
BP is independent: Landmark research on hormone replacement therapy has taught us that we still have a lot to learn about the impact of estrogen on heart disease. At this point, it would be premature to predict its benefits or harm, since heart disease risk increases after child bearing years. Blood pressure should be controlled long term to prevent future events, it's relationship to oral contraceptives varies.
What can I expect during a stomach emptying test? Will the length of test be an indicator as to the results?
Define gastroparesis: Gastroparesis means a stomach ('gastro") that's slow to empty ("paresis")--seen in diabetics, with ischemia, pancreatic cancer, after viral infection, post-surgery, with stomach pacemaker problems (yes, the stomach has a pacemaker!), ; in systemic illness. The stomach normally empties liquids in 1-2 hours, solids 4-6 hours after meals. A gastric emptying scan measures stomach transit of test meal.
My baby is 19 months. His height is 81cm n weight is 10.5 kg. Birth weight was 2.4 kg. Is it average?
My baby is 5 n half months. His height is 68cm n weight is 8.3 kg. Birth weight was 3 kg. Is it average?
His recumbent length: & his weight are each 75th %ile for his age, with birthweight ~ 25th %ile. Review the velocity of head & body growth on his growth charts with his pediatrician at each check-up. The aap also recommends that pediatricians do ongoing developmenta surveillance using standardized screening tests at each check-up + autism-specific screens at 18 & 24 mos. See firstsigns. Org & the aap's healthy minds app.

Growing well: His parameters have increased from the 25% to the 75% range between birth & 3 months. This in a common feature of many kids who may have been undersized at birth due to a variety of factors.
My height is 5 feet 8 inches and my weight is 66 kg. I want to increase my height and weight. So is there any possibilities? Date of birth is 23/3/89
NO: NO- you are done growing, short of surgical lengthening of your bones.
Hmmm: No one really knows. A large genetic correlation but not definitive.
Iam 25 yaears old my length is 160 CM and 73 kg wight after my baby birth iam fat please what need to loos my wight?
Baby is 4 months on the 6th. Weight she's in 90th (16.6 lbs) height 50th (24") and head 10th (39 cm). Her head was 34.3 @ birth, should I be concerned?
Normal Growth: Rough calculation: birth weight doubles in 4 months, triples in 1 year. If her birth wt. Were around 8 pounds, the current weight is ok, make sure you don't overfeed her. Her length is ok, birth length is on average 20 inches. Head circumference is usually 34 cm at birth, 40 cm at 3 months, 42.5 cm at 6 months, 45.5 cm at 1 year and 48 cm at 2 years. Head size depend mostly on family head size.See 1 more doctor answer
What is the normal weight and height of 10week old baby at birth she was 3kg now she's 5.5 & 60 cm is it normal? She eats formula milk
Huge range of normal: In my clinic, most normal babies gain between 25g and 55g each day until about age 2 months, after the first week of life. Normal babies lose weight during the first week of life while waiting for Mom's milk supply to come in. Thus, it is not possible to guess how much one particular 10-week old should weigh, without knowing more about the baby.
Two weeks: It is customary to recommend not relying on the pill for the first month, but really two weeks is adequate if you are a committed 'pill taker' and take it daily, as recommended.
