QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR DOCTOR

The first step to helping your child reach his or her full height potential is a proper diagnosis.
Once a proper diagnosis is made, your child's doctor may suggest growth hormone therapy. If so, you will want to learn more about the treatment options approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Talk to your child's doctor about your concerns, treatment, and the things that matter most to you.

Here are some questions you might want to ask your doctor:

  • Which growth hormone therapies are FDA approved for my child's condition?
  • What device options are available, and what are the features of each?
  • How will I learn how to use the devices needed in growth hormone therapy?
  • How long will my child have to continue on growth hormone therapy?
  • Is there any help for me with insurance reimbursement?
  • What kind of support is there for children receiving growth hormone therapy and for their parents?
