I have a 9 year old son who is very small. He weighs 51 lbs and 49 inches tall. He is in the 3rd % for weight and under the 3rg % for height. I get frustrated when pople say ***l grow. He hasn't grown yet this year. He has a handfull of other problems including adhd, autism, sleep problems, asthma, stabismus (lazy eye) and clubfoot. He has had 5 surgeries to date, more to come in the future. He was supposed to have a double flatfoot surgery this summer, but was too small to do so. He has averaged 1 lb and 1 inch per year since he was about 3-4. He is now anemic and has leukopenia. He has not grown any height yet this year and is now losing hair on his head. It is very thin now, but has added 2 lbs thanks to dietary changes, boost, and flintstones vitamins with iron. His white blood cell count is back up, but he is still anemic. He has had a sleep study done this summer, but everything was normal. We also saw a geneticist this summer. Please someone help me. Cant get the doctor to be serious. about this.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
