  • I notice some delayed growth and developmental milestones in my son

 

You as a parent and class teacher, may notice some developmental delays in a child. For eg.

  • most of the children of this age have an average height of 2 feet and this child is very short.
  • this child is very aloof compared to others.

Some of the parents picks such differences and needs to take corrective actions to investigate and offer specific treatment for such kids. It would be parents responsibilities to rule out Endocrine related conditions as its consequences especially amongst kids are not reversible.

You have to take them to your pediatricians or an endocrinologists for detailed evaluation and management of the kid. Out of 1 lakh kids, up to 15 kids may have such endocrine related disorders that can be managed by early diagnosis and intervention.
