Growth Disorders

Growth disorders can occur in children for a number of reasons, including genetic disorders, hormonal problems, or poor absorption of food.

Some growth disorders are diagnosed immediately after birth, while others become apparent later in childhood, as the child fails to meet expected growth trajectories.

Childhood growth disorders are diagnosed with the help of a full medical history and physical examination. In addition, blood tests may be ordered to assess your child’s hormones, and x-rays may be done to determine the maturity and growth potential of his or her bones.
