Growth Disorders

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Some children might be small for their age but still be developing normally. Some children are brief or tall due to the fact that their parents are. However some children have growth disorders. Growth disorders are problems that stop children from developing normal height, weight, sex-related maturation or other features. The pituitary gland makes growth hormonal agent, which stimulates the growth of bone and other tissues. Treatment with growth hormone can stimulate growth. People can additionally have way too much growth hormone. Too much growth hormonal agent can cause gigantism in children, where their bones and their body grow way too much.
