How is your daughter now?
by: Laura

I have been most interested reading your questions about your daughter's sudden weight gain.

Today we were at the endocrinologist with my nearly 8yo daughter discussing an almost identical situation. At the same ages, almost the same heights and weights. She also loves dancing as her main sport. The focus of weight gain is around the belly too. She eats healthily and is active.

The truly odd thing is that this happened to me at exactly the same age! I asked the doctor if there is research about why this happens but he said it is quite rare.

For me, the weight gain stabilised at age 12 when I started secondary school (and puberty). I have never been skinny (Bmi always around 24) but never had any weight problem since.

I wondered since this was 4 years ago, how is your daughter now?
