Every parent wants their child to develop at a healthy pace, and not to miss any of his peers.
Is it wrong if my child is higher or lower than his peers?However, what should we do if our son or girl is well above the average? Is there any cause for concern then dr. Tar Attila, the endocrinologist of the Buda Endocrine Center gives the answer.
What is Bone Age?Although children have a developmental rate and others, they are genetically slightly higher and lower growth, but values range within a certain range. Therefore, if the parent observes higher altitudes, it is worth examining the child's bone agewhich shows essentially biological health. Ideally, it is the same as the child's age, but there may be several years of difference between bone and age. If there is less growth hormone in the body than normal, bone age is below age, otherwise it is less than bone age.
When to Determine Bone Age?
- the height of a child differs greatly from that of his age
- early / early sexual maturation
- also in other endocrinologic diseases (eg, thyroid gland, thyroid disease, etc.)
