Our approach to treating abnormal growth disorders

When you’re worried about your child’s health, you don’t want to wait for answers. At London Medical, appointments are booked promptly, blood tests can be done on the same day in-house and results are emailed directly to your consultant, who can share them with you without delay. Our paediatric endocrinologists are considered the top in their field, and they offer personalised care tailored to your child’s individual needs.

Because growth and development problems can cause significant mental and psychosocial stress for children and teens, we often suggest that your child sees one of London Medical’s counsellors for additional support.

Most growth disorders can be diagnosed with standard blood hormone tests. Sometimes, more lengthy, complex tests need to be done. Our expert nurses and lab technicians ensure all blood tests are done safely, effectively and swiftly. 

Your consultant might recommend the following investigations to diagnose a growth disorder:

  • Hormone blood tests and testing for chronic diseases
  • A stimulation test to measure growth hormone secretion
  • X-rays
  • MRI scans to check the pituitary gland’s shape and size
