Growth Assessment

Human growth starts at conception and proceeds through various identifiable developmental stages. The process of growth depends on both genetic and environmental factors that combine to determine the individual’s eventual height. Growth is an important objective parameter of general health of the child.

 

The cause for short stature can range from normal variants like familial short stature, constitutional delay to pathological conditions like endocrine and systemic disorders. Fortunately, the normal variants are the commoner cause of short stature and can be suggested by basic tools like anthropometric data and estimating bone age.

SO IT’S TIME TO VIEW YOUR CHILD’S GROWTH CRITICALLY….
