HGH For Kids

HGH for kids

While much has been written about HGH for anti-aging, it was originally developed as a growth hormone for kids.  

If you notice that your child is not growing as fast as other children, it could very well be that they are not making enough Human Growth Hormone.

For a child whose growth is not progressing normally, HGH therapy can be the difference between a normal height and stunted growth. Without it, a child will not reach the proper stature that they would otherwise and never grow as tall as their siblings, cousins, and friends.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Children can reach their ideal height with the right intervention. Human Growth Hormone injections can help give them the “boost” they need to grow as nature intended.

Growth Hormone Deficiency In Children

When you see your child growing, but not as much as their peers, chances are that they are deficient in the production of Human Growth Hormone.

Known scientifically as idiopathic short stature, there isn’t a specific cause for a child’s deficiency of growth hormone. The good news is that a medical regimen exists to help children with HGH deficiency to overcome it. A licensed physician can discuss it with you and recommend treatment.

The goal of having your child on a regimen of HGH is to both their growth velocity and trajectory back to their normal levels and have them meet or beat their expected growth target.

Growth Plates

Just like adults, HGH for children must be prescribed by a licensed physician. HGH must be prescribed to a child early—the younger the age, the better. Before the physician can prescribe HGH, he or she needs to do some diagnostic testing.

The doctor starts with blood testing and an X-Ray of your child’s left hand to examine the growth plates that close when puberty begins. These “plates” are discs of cartilage between the middle and end of long bones in arms and legs. Most long bones have a growth plate at both ends.

These growth plates tell the physician how close the child is to puberty. When the growth plates close, a child’s puberty has begun.

Prescribing HGH

Our physician will require blood tests and an X-ray of his or her left hand to determine if there is a deficiency. After receiving test results, the physician will go from there.

Once a diagnosis is made, the physician can prescribe HGH to begin treatment. The best time to start your child on HGH is prior to puberty.

The child’s body weight decides his or her HGH dosage. Generally, that is 0.025 mg/kg/week to 0.035 mg/kg/week. The highest dosage given to a child is 0.035 mg/k daily.

If the child does not grow more than 1.18 inches or experiences an increase in body weight, the dosage will be adjusted accordingly.

Pausing Puberty

The earlier your child starts on HGH, the better. (It’s also less expensive because they will need a smaller dose.) Clinical studies show that the sooner a child begins HGH therapy, the better the results, and the more height they will gain.

It’s vital to begin the process of HGH before the growth plates close and the child’s puberty begins. Once the growth plates close and puberty begins, it’s too late to attempt growth increases with HGH. After the age of 16, HGH has no real effectiveness.

It’s possible to pause the onset of puberty to begin a regimen of HGH. Injections of Pamorelin (Triptorelina) every three months can pause puberty—and stop the closure of the growth plates—giving time to allow HGH to re-start growth before the plates close for good.

Another drug that pauses puberty is called Armidex, which is a pill taken once daily. However, it should not be used alongside Pamorelin, only instead of it, along with HGH, under a doctor’s care.

What To Expect

When combined with Pamorelin to pause puberty, HGH can give children as much as three inches of growth in a one-year period.  One study showed growth of more than four inches in a year in children around the age of 10.

In our own clinic, our endocrinologist has seen children growing three inches in six months with a combination of Pamorelin and HGH. Without Pamorelin, the growth increase was only 1.6 inches in six months.

In the short term, HGH therapy produces an acceleration of growth with a significant increment of height which is dose-dependent during the first 3-4 years. The long-term response is less dose-dependent. The vast majority of short SGA children reach an adult height within normal standards and adequate for their target height.

When a child grows at least two inches in a six-month period, you will know that the HGH is having a positive impact on his or her growth. The younger your child begins his or her HGH therapy, the taller he or she will grow before beginning puberty and stopping the growth process.
