Has anyone else hard of this?
 Insulin-like growth factor deficiency


My 2 year 8 month old has just been diagnosed as having it we are just waiting for a 2nd test to confirm it 

It looks like she will be on daily injections of growth hormones and I was wondering if any other mum on here has had or is having the same problem 

what their out come was and how they got on injecting their child 
How their child felt about having to have the injections

my advice is to research all you can about this before agreeing to any kind of treatment...look at all the options available for the condition, side effects of treatments, long term side effects,  and ask LOTS of questions..if the dr is vague in answers, get a second opinion.

My cousin had them for a couple years. I don't know that much about them, but here's a bump for you.

my son is growth hormone deficient and  i have to give him a daily injection of growth hormone... he is 6 years old and has been taking these shots nightly for about 10 weeks now.  we go to his first follow up appt next week so i'm excited to see the results thus far.

Never heard of it. Hope you get everything figured out and they're ok. 

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.
