Before you post a reply saying that your child is overweight or that you want them to lose weight, please first check our Weight Calculator. If the calculator says that your child is healthy weight, please do not post a message saying that they are overweight or that you want them to lose weight.  This offends the kids who really are overweight.  Thanks a lot.

From Tammy, child's age 4

Hi, my son is 4 years old. At his last well check, (last week) he weighed 68 lbs. I insisted that the dr do some labs to see if there was a medical cause for him gaining 8 pounds in the last 6-8 weeks. The dr reluctantly ran some tests, his fasting blood sugar was 100-Normal! then the office called and told me the dr wanted him back because his liver enzymes were elevated. What does that mean. Is it common in overweight kids or is there something I need to worry about while I wait till his appointment of Friday? I worry about my baby and have looked up all sorts of horror stories online. Any words of advice would be great!
