Growth Velocity

Growth velocity, or change in weight or height over time, can be used to assess growth in children when compared with reference values by age and sex. Growth rates decline in the first few years of life and then increase with the pubertal growth spurt. Premature and small-for-dates children and those recovering from malnutrition and severe infections tend to have higher growth velocities (catch-up growth). Growth velocities are useful to monitor growth and assess the response to therapy including nutritional supplementation.
