Growth Hormone Deficiency in Children


The Growth Hormone Deficiency in Children Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and The MAGIC Foundation. It is intended to provide educational information and healthcare savings resources for families with children living with Growth Hormone Deficiency.

Growth Hormone (HGH or human growth hormone) is a crucial hormone for a healthy life. It is secreted by the pituitary and is one of a number of hormones affecting a child's growth. What surprises most people is the fact that growth hormone actually affects much more than just a child's height; heart strength, lung capacity, bone density, immune system function can all be impacted by growth hormone deficiency. It is important to note that Growth Hormone Deficiency is a treatable condition and it is therefore imperative to identify children with growth hormone deficiency early to avoid permanent delays and damage. The MAGIC Foundation, a non-profit organization, is partnering with NeedyMeds to host this educational page and is committed to providing support services for the families of children afflicted with Growth Hormone Deficiency.
