I took my son to the Drs for his annual check up today. Everything is fine except she was a little concerned with his height because he has only grown 1 inch over the year. His father and I are short people. Myself being a whopping 5'2" and my SO 5'8-9" I just think 4 years old is SO early in development to determine whether or not we need to start injecting children with a hormone that they dont know much about. The link I entered says that it could possibly cause leukemia and other cancers. They just dont know because they have not followed someone for 50 years. I knew a girl that went to my high school who was about 4'9" and taking GH and they only made her breasts and buttocks bigger. I just dont think I am comfortable injecting something like this in my son when his 'problem' is genetic. Does anyone else use GH on their childrens or selves?
