Growth & Growth Charts

While we aim to keep all lists of links of high quality, the inclusion of a link does not imply that APEG endorses or otherwise approves that site or the information contained therein. Members must make their own judgment about any information that they obtain from any linked site

Further important information about Growth Hormone is available in the website section on the OZGROW Subcommittee

Australian and New Zealand Growth Charts:

The APEG endorsed growth chats for boys and girls in Australia and New Zealand are currently not available to be provided on the APEG website due to copyright issues.  APEG is currently looking to establish a similar resource for future use, but at this time we recommend the use of the WHO and CDC charts in links below

  • Infants and children less than 2 years of age – use the WHO growth standards
  • Children between 2 yrs and 18 yrs use the CDC charts – Girls and Boys

RECOMMENDED CHARTS FOR GIRLS AND BOYS AT DIFFERENT AGES ARE LISTED BELOW
