I know alot of adults under 5 feet tall.  They live just like the rest of us "average" folk.  I am sorry i do not know why she needs the hormones but wish everyone good luck.

She has something called Idiopathic short st? dew to growth factor defintiony

She does not make growth factors that take the growth hormones around

Before treatment last year the doc said she would not grow more then 4ft7
So the new hight is good

I am 5ft 9 and daddy is 5ft 8
Tall for our age
My sons are all grown up and 6 ft 2 the youngset son is17 and is the tallest at 6ft 4

So you can see why the doctors are worried

Sorry for tipoo its 4.45am and had no sleep

No worries.   It looks like she will be the "pixie" of the family.   Hopefully no one teases her horribly for the smaller stature.  DD has a classmate which is a whole head shorter than her and it seems to run in the family.   I thought 5'8 was average or below average for an adult male.  I am glad the hormone replacement therapy is helping.

No worries.   I think she will be the cutest pixie your family has ever seen.   I keep shrinking. I was 5'5, 5'6 on a good day and now down to 5'4  LOL.  DD is roughly 4'even at 7 yrs old.  I will find out officially next week at her well check.

Shes 3 years and 6 months and 32inches and 25lbs a tiny bit smaller
But what you need to go by is yours and baby daddys hight
That of other brothers and sisters
Her health
How well she eats
My DD was picket up upon when she was 6 months old
With her being the youngest of 6 who were all big she was like something dropped off LOL

They said at first it was failure to frive My spelling

If you have a dink doo in your family I would not worry

I'm 5ft 5in, and husband is 5ft 8in. I was very worried about my daughter until I got my hands on my own growth chart, as a child I was 36in and 26lbs at 3, so not far from my daughter. My son is also tiny.
My daughter eats plenty, but gains weight very slowly.
Despite your daughter being on the shorter side, her height to weight ratio sounds great.

That's good that you had your own history to go by
And yes the doctor seems to think the same
On her own as she stands shes just right
