Customer Question

My son is 8 years old. His height is 122.5 cm. He did not grow except once centimetre since last year and he is on the low curve not out of the curve. We live in Egypt. I want to investigate human growth deficiency and know what is the best place in London to go to investigate and when can he start treatments to give him better option. Thanks a lot.

This is Dr. David

you need to find a private pediatric endocrinologist team in London for blood test for your son to check pituitary hormones and growth hormones for him.

he may not have started puberty so he may not be hitting his growth spurt yet.

here are some facilities in London you can contact
