What are options for treatment of advanced bone age
Our kiddo is 8 - was diagnosed last year with mild congenital hyperplasia. Working with a pediatric endocrinologist. Tries to avoid using steroids with the kiddos and we are using metformin to treat. Had difficult time getting up to full dose because of tummy irritation but going from the generic brand to the name brand which has a coating on it seemed to do the trick. First bone scan was 8 yrs and 7 months. Now 10 months later we have progressed to 11 yrs on the bone age scan. What are treatment options to arrest the bone age from progressing so quickly? We are awaiting an appointment to go in to discuss and are trying to research options.
