Growth hormone is a drug that can be of great help to people who are short and who are still able to grow.

It is not a medication that can be taken lightly and should not be taken without experienced medical supervision. Nevertheless, if used correctly, it is a safe and effective means of helping some short children to grow taller than he or she would have grown without the additional growth hormone, Adults and teens who have had fused epiphyses will not benefit from growth hormone in terms of height. However, people who have congenital growth hormone deficiency or acquired growth hormone deficiency ( eg after surgery, radiotherapy or chemo therapy or after brain damage of one form or another ), or those who have conditions such as Prader Willi Syndrome , will have beneficial effects from the use of growth hormone in adulthood


Preventing Diabetes

Babies born to mothers with diabetes in pregnancy ( gestational diabetes or GDM) , SGA (Small for Gestaional Age ) , LGA ( Large for Gestational Age ) , and who have had a pattern of rapid catch-up growth in early childhood or who later become fat and do not exercise, will be at higher risk of developing diabetes in later life, sometimes as early as the preteen or teenage years.
