My son is 14 years old 4 feet 7 inches, Dr wants to start him with growth hormone, im so scared of the side effects,especially diabetes type 2 has been reported. Any one has a child with diabetes due to growth hormone.

Yes I started my 5 year old daughter at xmas time last year. So far she has grown 2 1/2cm, we are very happy with it so far, she is fantastic with the injections 6 days a week, doesn't even complain anymore, she knows its helping her grow, so she can catch up to Mummy...lol

Hey, Sorry to hear about your daughter, no I havent, I lost a few around twelve weeks before I got pregnant with Olivia but they never investigated why, it was just put down to miscarriage.It wasnt until 24 weeks when they thought I was going into labour that they found out Olivia had Turners Syndrome, none of her doctors in Melbourne expected her to make it, they were all pushing for an abortion.Was TS diagnosed before or after you lost her?

I lost my daughter at 23 wks along due to turner's . She had severe problems ( heart, tumor etc.) Anyone else gone through the loss of a turner's baby.
