Also steroids given for various other reasons can cause side effects which need to be managed very carefully.

Growth Disorders

Is your child growing normally? Is he gaining height and weight as he should? Is he comparing well with his classmates and friends?

Growth problems can be worrisome , because normal growth means healthy child and if growth is slow, we need to look into the reasons for it. There is treatment available for slow growth and short height but it is important that we help children to grow while they still have time to grow. After this time has passed , no treatment works.

Dr. Uppal provides effective treatment for slow growth according to the cause responsible for it. Also available is growth hormone therapy for children having growth hormone deficiency. A lack of adequate production of this hormone may result in slow or retarded growth as against normal growth within a child.
