We are dealing with a one year old that just can't grow. recently took him to a growth DR, but to me it seems that they are taking their time finding out what is going on. He just turned 1 and he only weights 14 pounds, he looks like he's about 4 or 5 months old. He has a deletion in his chromosome 4 that is rare and that could be some of the issue, but he also has a low level of a growth hormone (i can't think of the name of it at the moment). Anyone else going through this or has gone through this and if so can you tell me what to expect so that i'm not as suprised down the road.
so far he has had 2 bone age x-rays, alot of blood work, and is getting a MRI in JanuaryAnswer Question
