Q.

My 10 year old daughter...

She is overrowing! since she was about 6 years old she started overgrowing, taller than her peers and all, now she is 10, wears sze 36 clothes and size 6/7 shoes and already almost my height 1.68, and I cant help but worry a lot now, could there be something wrong with her?

The average height for girl of 10 years is 138cm.Your daughter's height is truly exceptional for her age and is completely off the top of the normal growth chart for children.
I am concerned about her height.It would be best for her to be seen by either your paediatrician or even better directly by a paediatric endocrinologist.
