## How are our children growing up?

What is the growth of the child? These are cartilage zones and growth hormone. It is necessary to carefully monitor the development of a child under the age of 18. Why up to 18?

Typically, such disruptions occur during adolescence, but there are cases when this problem is detected at the age of about five years. This disease is diagnosed with the help of an analysis of hormones and MRI.

## Dwarfism

This disease manifests itself early, the growth of children in 2 years can already be an indicator of its development. Therefore, be very attentive to children at the age of 2-3 years. If the growth of the child after 2 years has slowed down significantly, and instead of the prescribed 10 centimeters, and your baby is gaining only 2, then this is a good reason to see a doctor.
