Empower your children
To grow-up strong
Growth is a critical part of childhood, both physically and mentally. However, some children may experience growth problems, which can impact their overall health and well-being. These problems can manifest in various ways, such as delayed puberty, short stature, or slow growth rate. It is essential to recognize the signs and symptoms of growth problems in children to address them promptly.
There are several types of growth problems in children, including:
- Delayed growth and development: Children who are not growing at the expected rate for their age may have a growth hormone deficiency or other underlying medical conditions.
- Precocious puberty: This occurs when a child’s body begins puberty too early, before the age of 8 in girls and 9 in boys.
- Short stature: Children who are shorter than their peers may have genetic or medical reasons, such as Turner syndrome, growth hormone deficiency, or bone disorders.
- Slow growth rate: Children who are growing at a slower pace than their peers may have underlying medical conditions like hypothyroidism or malnutrition.
The symptoms of growth problems in children can vary depending on the type and severity of the condition. Some common symptoms include:
- Short stature compared to peers
- Delayed puberty
- Slow growth rate
- Abnormal body proportions, such as short legs and a long torso
- Delayed dental development
- Delayed or absent menstruation in girls
- Early onset of puberty.
Growth problems in children are a global health concern that affects millions of children worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 155 million children under the age of 5 worldwide are stunted, with over 90% of them living in low- and middle-income countries.
In Europe and the Middle East, an estimated 5% of children experience short stature, while the prevalence of growth hormone deficiency is around 1 in 4,000 children. In the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, the prevalence of growth hormone deficiency is around 1 in 3,500 children.
Endobiogenic medicine takes a holistic approach to treating growth problems in children. Rather than just treating the symptoms, endobiogenic medicine seeks to address the underlying imbalances in the body that are preventing healthy growth and development.
Some key elements of the endobiogenic medicine approach to growth problems in children include:
- Nutritional support: Ensuring that children are getting the proper nutrients they need for healthy growth and development is a key component of endobiogenic medicine. This may involve dietary adjustments or nutritional supplements.
- Hormone regulation: Balancing hormone levels, particularly growth hormone, can be critical to promoting healthy growth in children.
- Stress reduction: Chronic stress can interfere with healthy growth and development. Endobiogenic medicine practitioners may recommend stress reduction techniques such as meditation or acupuncture.
In conclusion, growth problems in children can be a complex issue, but endobiogenic medicine offers a holistic approach that can help address the underlying factors preventing healthy growth and development. By providing nutritional support, regulating hormone levels, and reducing stress, endobiogenic medicine can help children thrive and reach their full growth potential.
