Hi! My name is Tiffany and have been going through a very frustrating journey with my 7 yr old. Noah is 7.5 years old but the size of a 5 year old. He has been diagnosed with :
- Diffuse Paranasal Sinus Disease
He is currently trying to be diagnosed for Lack of Growth.... He has not grown at all in 18 months.... His left leg is 2cm shorter than his right leg, His adult teeth are at least 3 - 4 years behind in development, and his body DOES produce all of his hormones at normal levels. . He eats us out of house and home. The Endocrine doctors at UNC said that since his body produces all of his hormones at normal levels growth hormones are not for him. He was tested for Celiac but they say he does not have it. He is now scheduled to see a Gastroenterologist, Neurologist, and Genetics. He has a older brother that is very tall, and premature younger sister that is 5 and the same size as him. Both his sister and brother have lost teeth. Brianna has always been in the 25th percentile due to being a premi, but has stayed on her curve. With that said, she is 2 years younger and the same size. Noah's 5-6 yr molars are not even formed yet! He is having a hard time with this and the doctors do not seem to have any answers. We have seen a min of 23 doctors/ specialist since Feb of this year.
Has anyone else dealt with this with their child and received a diagnosis??
I am 5'7 and the father is 5'11
