When Is The Average Wake Up Time Of Teenagers
"Average" depends: "Average" varies from one region to another, and on average, American children may be a bit bigger than some countries. I have attached a growth chart depicting "average" or 50th percentile for a 17 year old girl as about 55kg. I see you live in India, and I do not have a growth chart specifically for you. But you may use this chart as a reference if it's helpful. See your doc if you're concerned! ...Read more
See below: Hard question to answer as all teenagers are different. I suppose it would depend on the type of exercise, medical health and history, and whether any perceived damage is occurring with the present regimen. 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
1 hour/day: The centers for disease control (cdc) recommends that kids 18 and under get one hour/day of moderate/vigorous exercise: running, dancing, skating, cycling, weights, yoga.Choose something you like. You don't need to do it all at once. You can take several "exercise snacks" to reach 1hr. When exercising you shouldn't be able to carry on a conversation easily. Above 18, do at least 30min/day. ...Read more
The severity differs from time to time... I used to get migraines when I was a teenager they went away now I feel like it's back but with symptoms?
Migraine: Migraines can wax and wane, but the consensus is that this is a chronic condition. Drink lots of water, rise and bed the same time. Get lots of exercise and consider some relaxation exercises and meditation. If your migraines your having lately seem different or have additional suggestions, i'd suggest a visit to your doctor for an exam and additional history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Not necessarily: Over the long hall your system is likely to show subtle if not dramatic signs of a deficit like sleep walking, sleep talking, nodding off while driving etc. 8 hours/24 would be the minimum healthy pattern. At 18 you still have 6-8 years of brain growth/refinement to support & it requires healthy rest. ...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
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. Fever control, saline in the nose, a cool mist humidifier, and lots of fluids to drink will help the most. Frequently a virus will get worse for 3-4 days, peak for a day or so, then improve for 3-4 days. If he isn't getting better or symptoms are worse, see his doctor ...Read more
