What Sort Of Vitamins Should A Fifteen Year Old Girl Be Taking
One with iron: A multiple vitamin a day with food and one that contains iron would be beneficial in a menstruating 15 year old provided there are not iron related illnesses in the patient or the family (hemochromatosis). They are over the counter. Women lose iron through the menses. Megadose vitamins or unusual regimens of vitamins are not necessary. Keep it simple! Generic is fine! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A 15 year old girl has G6pd. Vitamin D level : 9.7ng/ml. Can she start taking vitamin D supplement? And how?
Vit D deficiency: Vit D levels are low in lots of pts. Most docs who check it will tell you it needs to be about 60, range is 30 to 100. A level of 9.7 will take a while to get up, but when it gets in the upper normal range the person will have so much more energy and feel better all around. Try the Vit D 5000U gummies. These seem to work the best. Taking one a day or a handful a week will do the trick. ...Read more
I'm a 16 year old girl and I'm 5'8 and want to gettaller. Can anyone recommend me diet/ exercise/ vitamins/ pills?
Depends: Most women finish growing taller at 16-17 or within 3 years of first menses. The hormones that trigger puberty start a growth spurt but eventually the growth centers will close. Once the growth centers close you are done. A single x-ray of your wrist/hand could be examined for growth centers. If open you could grow taller, if closed you are done. No special exercise, diet/vitamin or pills add height. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My five year old girl has no appetite. How do u get her to eat again? Is there any over-the-counter vitamin that can be recommend.
Discuss with PCP: If your kid is growing at a normal rate & participating in peer activities, i'd leave her appetite alone. At 5 they are growing at a steady 3-4 lb/yr & 2-3 inches. They rarely eat a balanced meal but do have a balanced week. They often feed well only 4-5 days a month. If you want to buy vitamins, buy them, but recognize that you're likely just creating expensive urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most: Most adolescents who eat well balanced meals do not necessarily need a multivitamins. Fresh fruits and vegetables offer ample vitamins and minerals.

Yes: Prenatal vitamins are definitely healthy for women in their adolescence. Typically most prenatals have extra folic acid, iron and calcium. I typically recommend cost comparison to my patients because sometimes there is an upcharge on prenatals. Check the labels, you may find another brand has same ingredients but is cheaper if it doesn't say 'prenatal' on it. Just an idea. But definitely safe. ...Read more
