My 7 1/2 year old is less than 1% growth chart. The endocrynologist said he can get growth hormones. I'm not for them, but my husband is 5'5 and has always been conscious of it and is worried our son will be too. Has anyone taken these growth hormones. Are there any side effects?
His pediatrician says he is fine as long as he is on the chart and not to worry. But he is in 2nd grade and although we have always been very supportive and never let him feel he is different, he is finally beginning to feel it himself. He is perfect and I tell him to be proud of what God has given him, and to tell the same to anyone who says he is small to him, but I'm not sure if he is getting that right now.
