Many coaches can push teens too far in training leading to all sorts of problems. As long as the teen appears healthy and has no complaints, and is doing their school work well, no worries. ...Read more

I'm just wondering, if your a teenager and you go to get a physical for the first time what do they doctors do?
Teen physicals: A teen physical is just like any other pediatrics physical. I ask questions... About home, school, activities, friends. I also ask questions about depression, drug/alcohol use, whether or not the kid is sexually active. More personal questions are asked alone, with the parent out of the room. For the physical part of the exam, i check a teen head to toe. ...Read more

Is it healthy for a teenager to have a big appetite? Is it wrong for a teenager to have a big appetite? My daughter is 14 years old and she eats all the time but she doesn't gain weight. She says she loves food. Is this normal. I was young too and can eat
Most : Most girls have a growth spurt between the ages of 10 to 14 years old. This is a time of growth as well as the development that comes with puberty. Your daughter may require extra calories. If she is physically active she will be burning calories faster. You can check with your doctor to see if she is in the normal weight range for a girl of her height. What is important is that she eats healthy and well balanced meals, hydrates well with water and remains physically active. One possible drawback to eating large amounts is that it can become a habit. As she gets older or if she becomes more sedentary, her caloric needs can decrease. If that happened and she continued to have a high food intake (especially if we are talking junk food); then she could experience an unhealthy weight gain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The shallow capillaries in the nasal membranes will easily bleed when traumatized whether by choice or chance/asleep or awake.

Depends: It depends what stage of puberty he is in. If he is 13 and has just started puberty the penis may be about 6.5 cm (2 and 1/2 inches). That measurement is taken with the penis stretched (measuring from the pubic bone at the top of the penis to the tip). If there is a lot of belly fat the penis may appear smaller than it actually is. When puberty is further along at age 14-15 then penis gets longer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Help please? How long does it take for an average child/teenager to heal from sickness(flu, cold)?
7-10 days: Most viruses last 7-10 days, no matter what you do. The treatment is mainly just to make the child feel better.

What are some ways to reduce nervousness about seeing cardiologist for first time for a teenager?
Straight talk: Very often, anxiety (about anything) is made worse by reluctance to voice one's fears openly.
