Short Stature - Causes and Symptoms

The term short stature describes the height of the person that is significantly below the average height for a person's age, sex, racial group, or family. Growth failure is often confused with short stature. Growth failure that occurs over time eventually results in short stature. By definition, growth failure is a medical condition. However, short stature is often a normal variant.

Short stature may or may not be a sign or symptom caused by a medical condition. Your child's growth must be assessed over a period of time and not just at a single point. Any departure from a prior growth pattern, appropriate for the child's genetic background may signal the appearance of a disease.

Symptoms

Short parents tend to have short children. Children with a family backgroud of short stature does not have any symptoms related to diseases that affect growth. Children with constitutional growth delay do not have any diseases. These children enter puberty later than their peers. However, because they continue to grow for a longer period of time, they catch up to their peers as they reach their adult height, which is normal and comparable to their parents.

Some symptoms may signal a medical condition causing short stature. The following symptoms should be further investigated by your doctor:

Child has stopped growing or is growing slower than expected (less than 4 cm, or 2 in, each year in the pre-pubertal child of elementary school age)
Weight loss or gain (more than 5 lbs in a month)
Poor nutrition/loss of appetite
Delayed puberty (absent breast development by age 14 or absent menstrual spotting by age 15 for a girl or absent enlargement of the testes by age 14 for a boy); note that the presence or absence of pubic hair is not a reliable sign of pubertal development

What Causes Short Stature?

The three major reasons for short stature are constitutional growth delay, genetics and disease.

Constitutional Growth Delay: Some children simply develop later than others. These children are often referred to as 'late bloomers'. These kids are small for their age and often enter puberty later. However, they'll continue to grow after their friends have stopped. They usually catch up by adulthood.

Genetics: If one or both parents are short, there's a strong possibility that their child will also be short. If there are no underlying medical reasons why either parent is short, their child's short stature may be perfectly healthy.

Disease: A number of diseases may cause unusually short stature. These diseases fall into several categories:

Endocrine diseases affect hormone production and often height. These include growth hormone deficiency (GHD), hypothyroidism, or low thyroid hormone levels, and Cushing's disease.
Chronic diseases can also decrease height through their effects on overall health. Examples of chronic disease are heart disease, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, diabetes, kidney problems, sickle cell anemia, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
Genetic conditions that affect height include Down syndrome, Turner syndrome, and Williams syndrome.
Bone and skeletal diseases, such as rickets or achondroplasia, may change stature through their effects on bone growth.

Problems during pregnancy can affect the height of a child. Malnutrition can also lead to short stature.

I had sex with my girlfriend and she took unwanted 72 within 20 hours, we had sex again after 24 hours of taking the contraceptive pill, so my question is that should she need to take another pill or the unwanted 72 given after the first intercourse is sufficient?

Basically the drug is a high dose hormone which delays ovulation by a couple of days. So it may be effective for 2 days at most. It is safer to repeat it. But this cannot be continued indefinitely. It will cause irregular bleeding or can delay the next cycle. If taken early in the cycle within the first 10-12 days, it is most protective. If taken around 14-16th day, it may not stop an imminent ovulation. After 20th day, it may not be necessary as the egg has already burst and dried up. But all this is subject to much chronological variation, as the cycle days alter frequently from month to month. To answer your question, if she is at mid cycle or before she needs to repeat it. If she is beyond 20th day, the choice is yours since it may have no effect, rather it can cause period problems.

Sir/mam, I had unprotected sex with my fiance on 2nd may. 26 april was the first day of her periods. She has a 35 day cycle. Within two hours of sex she had taken i-pill. But till today she didn't got periods. 50 days over. After 30 and 37 days of sex she checked herself by pregnancy kit at home which came negative both time. She sometimes notices the signs of periods like swollen breast and abdomen pain, back pain but didn't got periods. Is this due to that I pill? Please guide us what to do. And what if she is pregnant as we are not married . Is there any medicine to to cure this irregularity of periods. Please guide us. Thanks.

Hi Pawan definitely this period problem can be solved. however first the cause must be found out. IN your case there are 2 possibilities, pregnancy and hormonal disturbance due to Ipill. I suggest you repeat the test again but with an early morning sample of urine for accurate results. if still negative we can start with medicines to resume her periods.

Most fertile period is at the time of ovulation, (when an egg is released from your ovaries) which usually occurs 12-14 days before next period starts. It is important to remember that sperm can sometimes survive in the body for up to seven days after sex. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. If the menses r missed by 7 days, then that is the time to check for pregnancy with home pregnancy test kit.

Krimson 35 is not emergency contraceptive pills. So you can not take it after having sex. It must be started before sex from day 7 of mensturation.

My period is 5 days late and I am worried I might be pregnant. I had my wisdom teeth pulled out three weeks ago, so I barely ate, lost a few pounds and didn't move around at all for 4 days. I was also on a lot of advil and tylenols and general anesthetics for the procedure. Also, my last period was 13 days early. I have also been stressed for school. Are any of these reasons possible reasons as to why my period is late?

If you had unprotected inter course then chance of a pregnancy is always there. The best way is to do a urine pregnancy test to confirm.

Hi lybrate-user, please get a blood test called serum bhcg. If the test is positive then follow up. As it could be ectopic pregnancy which is life threatening. If test is negative then await period for 4-5 days.
