I am not quiet sure, but what i know is an average of 5 cm per year. The best thing is to asses the child genetically according to his parents' height

Thanks Manal,

Actually i noticed from Lil Z's records that she has grown only 4 cms since last April,i don't know if that's goos or bad,last April her height was 120 cms,and right now her height is 124 cms.

I think that the best one who can answer this is the endocrinologist who is familiar with thalassemia. He/She can evaluate her growth genetically according to her parents' height and give you in which percentile she fits

Hi All,

Just thought I would share my secret too  :wink
I'm 152 (5 feet even) and weigh 42-43 kgs.

I'm the shortest in my family, however, my mom is about 5'1'' or 5'2'', so, not that much different. My brother is also shorter than my dad. Everyone accept me in the family is non-thal, Alhumdulillah.
I'm the chosen one!  :wink

All my siblings' height is between my mom and dad's height.

I do believe that if you take care of yourself and keep your levels as close to normal as possible, and get evaluated routinely, it's possible to reach the normal height dependant on your genetic makeup. My levels have always been way out of range, and still, I reached the 5 feet mark!

One other thing I would add to our qualities is that thals generally look pretty young  :wink, definiltey something everyone wishes to have... I have a sis 5 yrs younger than me, and everyone thinks I'm the youngest in the family!

Wish you all the happiness in the world!
-SF

Me and my hubby we both are not very tall,i am 5.2 and my hubby is 5.8 may be,so i am just expecting that if Little Z reaches 5.2 like me,that would be fine.

INSHA-ALLAH .....

Umair
Sometimes , God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes , He breaks our heart to make us whole.
Sometimes , He sends us pain so we can be stronger.
Sometimes , He sends us failure so we can be humble.
Sometimes , He sends us illness so we can take better care of our selves.
Sometimes , He takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything we have.

Zaini,

In little Z's class pictures she looks like she is taller than her classmates - I am guessing 5'5" for her  :wink :wink

Hey nice friend,
                     The reason could be that when I was young I prayed to God to become tall, That time i did not know much about thall condition, so Thanks to God for answering,  :smileblue

Hi Andy,
         the only chelating drug I took was kelfer
