Bone Age 3.5 years younger than age
My son is very short, at almost 10 years old (now 9.10/12) he is only 48 1/4 inches and 57 lbs. The bone x-ray shows his bone age to be 5 1/2- 6 years old! The next step is to do the blood work, but even if he is normal in the blood work, wouldn't he qualify for HGH treatments due to his height and age? Would that be the course of action to pursue?  I guess it is good news that his bones are younger, it means he has room to grow. Thank you, I am feeling worried about him ending up being only 5'3" as an adult.  I am 5'4", my husband 5' 7", my 16 year old daughter is only 5'1"....
