Do you mean growth hormones? They have some undesirable side effects, so doctors don’t give them without a complete workup first to check bone age and other factors.May 6, 2011 10:28 am at 10:28 am #764993hanibParticipant

Never took it, know someone who did. It worked.
It’s more important for boys than girls. Even at a very low dose, it can help the boy gain the 2 inches necessary to be anormal height. Better to do it younger than later.May 6, 2011 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #764995GumBallMember

Unfortunately GH shots are from the family of drugs that are abused (eg. athletes). Only to be taken under a doctor’s care, preferably an endocrinologist!May 6, 2011 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #764998mewhoParticipant
there have been cases of some body parts being slightly distorted. that is not the norm. it is a small small percentage. google it and look up some good medical facilities that practice in this fieldMay 8, 2011 4:39 am at 4:39 am #764999walton157Member
Yes, as some of our fellow-poster have said Human Growth Hormones is the protocol.
Also, check out Celiac Disease: This is when the body does not absorb nutrients.
Sometimes, it’s as simple as a different diet instead of years of huge medical expenses.
Speak with a competent doctor. If you are not satisfied with his/her answer go to another.

i wish i was 5″1 I’m 4″11 and 3/4-May 8, 2011 8:33 am at 8:33 am #765001commonsenseParticipant
none of you girls are excessively short. Many frum people are short and as long as they are not extremely short it is not usually a big problem for shidduchim. short girls have a much easier time than very tall girls because they can easily date both tall and short boys and anything in between.May 8, 2011 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #765002happiestMember
Haaa, I’m 4″9 at 22 years old. Can anyone beat that? lol
I like being short. It means I can marry anyone. Any guy who is short will automatically be tall to me and then I can marry a tall guy too. I love it!!May 8, 2011 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #765003Boro Park GirlMember
I’m 5’6″ and I love being tall. I feel bad for girls who are short because I know my short friends have a very hard time finding clothes that look good on them and don’t make them look dumpy even when they’re thin.May 9, 2011 12:17 am at 12:17 am #765004GumBallMember
im also short but i hope im still growing!!May 9, 2011 12:20 am at 12:20 am #765005
BPgirl- its called petite. and we do tonz of alterations. and everything looks cuter smaller-admit it!!May 9, 2011 1:20 am at 1:20 am #765006kapustaParticipant
I’m surprised no one said “good things come in small packages” yet. (FTR, I’m very un-petite. Like I said, good things… JK)May 9, 2011 2:24 am at 2:24 am #765007
kapusta- hey! thats one of my lines!
