At times it is common to know that your child is longer or shorter than his age. Some children are tall or short due to heredity, while some have growth disorders. Such disorders prevent kids from achieving a standard height. Growth disorders in normal kids are affected by a lot of factors.
Growth hormone deficiency is produced from the pituitary gland. The temporary structure in a child is caused due to inadequate production of growth hormones. If the defect is diagnosed at an early stage, it can be treated by daily substitution of growth hormone.
SGA- It indicates small for gestational age. LBW- Low birth weight. Majority of the kids who are born with a little height eventually catch up when they turn 2. But 1D % or 15 % of kids aren't benefitted from growth hormones, and their size doesn't increase.
