For what reasons don't doctors diagnose autism before age 3?

For what reasons don't doctors diagnose autism before age 3?

Sometimes they do.: It should be able to be recognized by age 3, but if symptoms are less noticeable, and iq is high, the diagnosis may not always be determined by age 3. In some cases the diagnosis is quite obvious to an experienced clinician by age 2. Feel free to seek a second opinion. Don't let the lack of a diagnose keep you from getting your child help. Speech/occupational therapy services can be very helpful. ...Read more

At what age can you get prescribed medication from a doctor on your own?

At what age can you get prescribed medication from a doctor on your own?

Depends. For what?: In general, you need to be 18 to be able to give 'consent' = accepting a medication with an understanding of the risks and benefits. On occasion, doctors may prescribe medications for minor illness with what is called 'implied consent' -- previous written permission from parents to treat. Some ob-gyns may prescribe birth control pills to protect against teen pregnancy when parents disagree. ...Read more

Hello doctors, i need to know if your feet can grow after a certain age?

Hello doctors, i need to know if your feet can grow after a certain age?

Yes and no : The simple answer is no. Bones will not grow under normal circumstances after their growth plates have closed. However as we get older the soft tissue that surround these bones can change. Sometimes this will widen the feet and other times it can make the feet smaller. Hope that answers your question. ...Read more

Hello doctor i want to ask my friend age 17 and how he to grow more height (asian male). What exersice he need to do.

Hello doctor i want to ask my friend age 17 and how he to grow more height (asian male).

What exersice he need to do.

Familial trait: An 17 yr old might not grow taller if his growth plates have fused. If not fused, he will grow a little bit (doctor's growth chart for him can tell if growth has stopped). To look taller, one can choose properly designed clothing and shoes, plus have good posture. Vitamins, supplements, "special" foods, exercises, etc... will not make a person living in the U.S. taller (height here is genetic). ...Read more

Hello, im 18 years of age the doctors tell me im still growing and my head is small for my body will it grow more as i grow?

Not much: The majority of head growth is finished by age 9 although the bones forming the skull do not completely fuse for many years thereafter.Most males finish their linear growth by 17-18 but an xray of your wrist and hand can show how much more growth to expect.The size of your cranium does not reflect what you can do with it.A portion of the normal population will have both small or oversized heads. ...Read more

An isolated: blood pressure like that is nothing to be concerned about unless the trend stays high. You need to check your blood pressure 3 times/week for 2-3 weeks taken by the same observer and see what the average is before becoming overly concerned. ...Read more

Prevention: A routine physical from time to time is an excellent way to prevent potential health problems.I once examined a patient for the 1st time in 3 years.He was there for me to fill out a form.I found what turned out to be a large kidney tumor which eventually caused his death.Earlier diagnosis would have probably saved him.You never know! ...Read more
