Varies: The human blink rate is affected by such factors as age, environment, and activity. Teenagers are often engaged in such activities as reading or computer work, which will reduce the blink rate from the average 10 times per minute to 3-4 times per minute.

How much time should a teenager spend exercising a day or week? Thank you.

How much time should a teenager spend exercising a day or week? Thank you.

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

I'm a teenager & i get about 4-6hrs of sleep a night & wake up fully energized, is that healthy?

I'm a teenager & i get about 4-6hrs of sleep a night & wake up fully energized, is that healthy?

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

Help please? How long does it take for an average child/teenager to heal from sickness(flu, cold)?

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

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

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 more
