Customer Question

Hi Dr. Riaz,
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: My son Jacob has a Lymphs (Absolute) of 3.5 High and and Alkaline Phosphatase of 150 also high. I called his Doctor which is also my doctor and he said he must be still growing. He is 20 years old. Doesn't produce HGH so he took artificial HGh for 3 years ih High School and is 5'10 I doubt he is still growing since he has not grown in 4 years. Any suggestions?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: He did have Mono last year but other than that he is feeling 100% now. Very active and very busy.

If I were in your shoes I would gather up your sons records and consult with a pediatric endocrinologist. This way all your concerns could be put to rest.
