Abstract The objectives were to describe cross-sectional growth in 279 Australian Aboriginal children aged 8–14 years in order to test the hypothesis that birth size interacts with child size to predict glucose and insulin metabolism. Cross-sectional growth outcomes were described using standard deviation scores or z-scores for height for age (HAZ) and weight for age (WAZ) calculated from CDC 2000 reference values in Epi Info 2000. Interrelationships were examined using standard regression models with current height and weight and birth weight, ponderal index and birth weight below the 10th percentile for gestational age. All models were adjusted for gestational age, gender and chronological age. Growth outcomes were poor with negative mean z scores for height and weight. Children with a birth weight
