Medical practitioners especially endocrinologists believe that the Human Growth Hormone is what determines the height of person. HGH has tremendously improved the life of kids. Rather than growing up being bullied and called names, these kids can better associate amongst their peers without being ridiculed. The Media has created a social and mental acceptance for tall people. Because of this people who are short get stigmatized and want to do anything to increase their height. Many ladies want to date a tall man and so short guys are not socially accepted. Some Ladies even bad mouth shorter ladies and even create whole cults bordering around height. This is the norm amongst adults. You can then imagine what kids go through. Required Height For Children Who Can Take HGH. For HGH to be used on a child they must be of a certain height. For boys they must have a height of 5 feet and 3 inches as their adult height. And girls must be 4 feet and 11 inches as their adult height. Budget and Time Span Of HGH Treatments Thousands of kids receive HGH injections everyday. This treatment costs about forty thousand dollars every year ($40,000) and the height of the child increases by two inches, per year. Kids take about six or seven injections per week and this goes on for a few years. For most kids this could last for 2 to 3 years. But there are cases where the treatment continues for 5 to 10 years. However, there is a lot of ongoing research going to determine ways in which the treatment can be reduced to a weekly or a monthly treatment. The research would be able to determine other courses of therapy where the injections are given once in a week or once in a month. Some pediatrics and endocrinologists have suggested that the treatment should begin early because it will determine the period of the treatment. The earlier the child begins to receive these injections, the more effective they will be. At age 17 boys can no longer grow and there will be no need for the treatment. A girl’s growth will end at 15 and she will no longer need the treatment. The first step is to book an appointment with an endocrinologist (a skilled practitioner who specializes in the growth of the hormones that go directly into the glands), who then decides the kind of hormones to be used and for how long.
