The Short Child (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Each year large numbers of parents become concerned that their children are shorter than their peers or seem to be falling behind. 5% of children under 14 fall below the normal range on the growth charts and their parents are often sufficiently worried to consult a specialist. Until now these parents had no authoritive source of information to either reassure them or guide them in seeking help. In this groundbreaking book two of the leading experts in the field provide those concerned parents with thorough, up-to-date information on the issues surrounding the diagnosis and treatment of growth disorders, inc. The role of genetics, nutrition and hormones in normal growth; when parents should and shouldn't worry about their child's growth pattern; the most up-to-date information on treatments, including the controversial use of growth hormones and much more.
