Constitutional growth delay
My son is 14 years old. He was diagnosed with constitutional growth delay at age 9. He has been in the 5th percentile since he was about 2 years old. He was recently seen by a pediatric endocrinologist. His bone age is roughly 11 & 3/4 years. The endocrinologist wants to wait until the end of the school year, have another bone age x-ray done, and if the bone age is 12 years start him on a 6 month course of Oxandralone. He did not have any other tests done besides the bone age x-ray. Should he have had maybe a thryoid or hormone tests done also for diagnosis? As with most his age, my son is having such a difficult time with this issues as he is the smallest boy in his high school (4ft 9in). I want to help him but don't want to rush into a treatment without finding out all the information first. I have been on a web search for information but would appreciate your comments.
