Word! Growth Hormone

Word! Growth Hormone

Growth Hormone

(En español: Hormona del crecimiento)

Say: grothe hor-mone

Growth hormone is a major player in normal growth, like when your legs get longer and suddenly all your pants are too short! If your body doesn't make enough growth hormone, you might have to see a doctor who specializes in growth problems. There are special tests to find out if children don't produce enough growth hormone. If they don't, daily shots of growth hormone can often help these kids grow to be average-sized adults.
