Background/Aim: Parents wanting to predict adult height (AH) often resort to the old practice of doubling a boy’s height at age 2 years or a girl’s height at 18 months. We coined this the ’Grandma prediction’ (GMP1). It provides predictions with mean absolute error (MAE) 5.9 and 5.2, standard deviations of residuals (sdRES) 4.1 and 3.6, and Pearson correlation r=0.68 and 0.67 for boys and girls, respectively.

Background/Aim: The trade-off theory claims that a resource (calorie) stored in adipose tissue cannot be used for longitudinal growth, and a calorie used for growth will not be stored as fat.Methods: Out of 2339 children with longitudinal heights and weights (birth to adulthood) from the GrowUp1990 Gothenburg cohort, 1993 (996 girls) were analyzed. For everyone we calculated Energy Trade-Off Score: ETOS = at early adulth...
