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.

Growth velocities are useful to monitor growth and assess the response to therapy including nutritional supplementation.
