You decide: Ideal weight" charts are based on fallacies. If we believed them, then most triathletes would be "underweight" and most professional football players -- fantastic athletes -- would be "overweight." your ideal weight is whatever looks and feels right to you and enables you to perform your chosen sport(s) best. ...Read more

Go see your doctor: There are many reasons for being underweight (you didn't state how much/little you weigh). Typically we calculate body mass index (http://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/adult_bmi/english_bmi_calculator/bmi_calculator.html) such that less than 18.5 is considered underweight (or less than 59.2kg). Regardless, you need to go see family doc for complete evaluation before starting treatment ...Read more

Sounds okay: You mean blood pressure, right? I glad he has a mom who can help him be comfortable during this illness. Not all teens want to exercise. Perhaps he will change his mind, or is why about starting. One great gift you could give him is family fitness -- everybody runs or does something else athletic together. My best fitness buddy as a teen was Dad. Best wishes. ...Read more

Weight worries?: If you look, feel, and eat healthy i see no specific concerns. At 19 yr. Old i would still encourage you to have once a year check up and ob/gyn exam annually. Also not a bad idea to take a multivitamin daily. Good luck. ...Read more

Am I too skinny? Male 5'10 130lbs. 19 years old

Depends: If you can do ten pushups, you are not too skinny. Many elite athletes match you. Despite the "normal height-weight" charts (which are subscientific), a man needs no more fat on the rest of his body than there is on the back of his hand or his penis. Many women prefer a slim, light-framed man, and the large majority prefer a man with visible muscles (definition). ...Read more
