From Cathy, child's age 10

I am starting to get really worried about my 10 year old son. He is 10 and weighs almost 150. Family on my side and his Fathers side has zero weight issues what so ever. My son was borderline under weight until he was about 8 years old but in the last 16 months he has doubled his weight... that's 75 lbs in 16 months!! He plays sports (Baseball and Lacrosse and really wants to play football and hockey) Last month I insisted that his thyroid be tested but everything came back fine. We eat well balanced meals, he gets exercise and has a good bill of health... What am I missing? What could possibly be going on with my boy? Please any suggestions or comments will be appreciated greatly!!
