Brief Answer:
need a fresh report to comment.

Detailed Answer:
dear sir, there are three important things in the prescription
1. doctor has commented that the child is not regular in treatment.
2. the doctor has already increased the dose after this report which is dated may 2017. so now to see the effect of increased dose and to further adjust the dose, we need a fresh report .
3. weight is more than height. so either the child is overweight or may be she is not gaining sufficient height. but to comment on height gain also i need her present height, and past height values, her mother and father height.
