Growing taller is a natural progression—for most children.  But not for those who have a medical condition that stunts their growth. Pediatric Endocrinologist Dr. Will Charlton, of Pharmaceutical company, Versartis, Incorporated, join us to discuss a rare condition, called Pediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency.  It occurs when the pituitary gland, located at the base of the brain, doesn’t make enough growth hormone.  This results in a slower rate of growth for a child.   Growth hormone is essential for normal growth.    Symptoms may be hard to identify.  There are a number of tests that your doctors can give your child to see if they have this condition.  We’ll tell you all about them.  We’ll also tell you about treatments and clinical trials of promising new treatments.  Plus—meet a young lady who’s going through Growth Hormone Treatments, along with her Mother, who will share their story. Remember to always be proactive with your children!
