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.
