are you in the uk?

where did you go for testing

was short stature the only symptom?

my daughter already got her period.

will it effect her results?

thanks for clarifying genetic vs hereditary. could it now be hereditary for her kids?


I live in the US. Short stature and other things. Fertility is unknown at this point and we are davening to Hashem who can do anything!

if the tests show gh deficiency is it enough? meaning can you also have a rare condition on top of that?

did your child have any other symptom other than short height?
could it be that so many kids are short with nothing wrong but maybe they have a condition never tested for/discovered? even if its hereditary it might be a hereditary problem that needs/could be treated?


I also want to add that my DC is seen every 6 months by an endocrinologist. Blood tests are taken before and the doctor adjusts the doses accordingly. Based of my experiences I am
Concerned for you. This needs to be monitored. When my DC results to the gh showed numbers above “normal” the dose was lowered. Then when growth slowed a bit (plus it’s a diff med) the dose was raised a bit. This needs monitoring…

a poster once wrote her son had shox gene deficiency. is this genetic?

anyone know how you test for it?

my side are short but dh side not. you could say its genetic but you never know what we could be deficient in?

could we all have silent celiac? Smile
shox gene deficiency? Smile
small pituitary? Smile

maybe "its genetic" means something?


That might’ve been me. My son is Shox gene deficient, meaning he inherited the Shox gene from one parent but not the other. I don’t believe it’s hereditary though, none of my other tested kids showed a deficiency. It’s a blood test but since it’s testing something genetic, I had to sign a special consent form.

It’s not that he inherited it from me or my husband, more like one of us didn’t pass that particular gene. It’s possible one of us is Shox deficient as well but we’ve never tested as it’s not relevant anymore. For the record, I’m 5’2” and my husband is around 5’7” or so.

if one of you didnt pass on a particular gene and now a child is deficient, how does it effect this childs children - your grandchildren? is it still not hereditary? this child can still pass on this gene to his/her children?

Ok you got me curious, because somatropin sounds like regular growth hormone to me. So I looked it up.

Basically, there's nothing homeopathic about it. It's regular growth hormone, except without the standardized formulation you would get from a real pharmacy and dosage oversight you would get from a real endocrinologist.

I asked the practitioner and was told - it is a growth hormone but made safe homeopathically.

like follicullinum is synthetic hormones but safe cos homeopathic.

now that your son has this deletion/deficiency then for his kids its now hereditary?
