Puberty coming on later is more common now adays I’m not sure why. Your PCP doc has short term treatments for it. You really should talk with him. Ask about having your IGF-1(Insulin-like growth factor 1) measured because you have a concern your HGH is not high enough.
Many young kids are put on HGH injections for a short period of time.
The human growth hormone ( HGH ) is a hormone that is made by your body in the pituitary gland and many claim have anti-aging properties. It is often marketed as an anti-aging hormone for adults. … Children sometimes receive HGH injections because a lack of the hormone in their body is impacting their growth rate.
HGH ( human growth hormone ) and IGF - 1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor) are closely related steroid hormones which stimulate muscle and bone growth. GH is produced in the pituitary gland, deep in the brain, and it circulates through the blood to the liver, where it stimulates production of IGF - 1 .
You should also ask him to test your pituitary gland. For Luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone ( FSH), which is another gonadotropin made in the pituitary gland.
If he refuses to do these test find another doctor until you get one that listens.
