Know About Delayed Puberty

MD - General Medicine, DM - Endocrinology, MBBS

Know About Delayed Puberty

Puberty results from activation of gonads (testes in boys/ ovaries in girls) by pituitary hormones LH and FSH. Activated gonads produce sexual hormones (testosterone in boys and estrogen in girls ) which are responsible for gender specific physical changes at puberty along with behaviour changes. Testosterone in boys is responsible for hair growth over pubic area and face with maturation of genital organs, breaking of voice, development of muscular and skeletal system. Similarly, estrogen in girls is responsible for breast development, maturation of genital organs with feminisation of body. Bone maturation with rapid height gain is seen at puberty both in boys and girls. Various systemic and hormonal disorders can result in either late or early puberty. 

LATE PUBERTY - 

Most of the boys show signs of puberty latest by age of 14 years and most girls start showing signs of puberty latest by age of 13 years. The earliest sign of puberty in boys is enlargement of testes and in girls is height spurt/breast development. When boys older than 14 years and girls older than 13 years don't have any signs of puberty it is called delayed puberty. 

CAUSES OF DELAYED PUBERTY - 

  1. Constitutional delay is most common cause of delayed puberty. The constitutional delay means child is not having any illness and he is going to develop puberty spontaneously at later age. But diagnosis of this condition can be made only after physical examination and investigations so that other causes of delayed puberty are ruled out. 
  2. Functional hypogonadotropic Hypopogonadism - Delayed but spontaneous puberty develops. This condition can be seen in systemic illnesses like chronic infections, poor nutritional status etc. 
  3. Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism - Disorders of pituitary gland result in low LH and FSH so that testes/ovaries are not stimulated and sex hormone is not produced. This can be caused by various genetic disorders, brain tumours, head injury, brain radiation etc. 
  4. Hypergonadotropic Hypogonadism - In this scenario, LH and FSH levels are normal but gonadal are not able to produce sex hormones resulting in delayed puberty. 

CONSEQUENCES OF DELAYED PUBERTY - 
The absence of age specific pubertal changes cause anxiety and distress in children and their parents. These children may develop low self-esteem and are teased by their peers. Along with the poor development of physical signs of puberty, fertility is also affected in hypogonadism. And most importantly, delayed puberty can be the symptom of serious underlying illness like intracranial tumours etc. These children deserve medical attention to get best results. 

INVESTIGATIONS - 
Serum testosterone/estradiol with LH and FSH is done to find out where is defect i.e. whether at the level of pituitary gland or at the level of testes/ovaries. Further investigations depend on levels LH, FSH, estradiol/testosterone. Other useful investigations include prolactin, T4, TSH, ray hand for bone age, ultrasound pelvis, MRI pituitary gland etc. 

TREATMENT - 
After diagnosis is established, Testosterone/estrogen replacement should be started to boys older than 14 year and girls older than 13 years respectively. Hormone replacement is very effective and usually safe. In adulthood those with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism can be treated with LH and FSH to produce sperms/ eggs so that they can achieve fertility. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Hi my son is 6 months old and he is suffering from teething problem what I should do to relax him as due to pain he is getting hyper and all the time putting fingers in his mouth n drinking 3 ounce or like 2 ounce per hour. immediately he vomits as he Take burp

DMB

Normally teeth start erupting at 6 months of age, but at this time most babies also start putting things in their mouth. This is the way the child explores his or her environment. Fussiness of the child can be caused by other things such as ear pain and blocked nose. Allow the child to put fingers in the mouth as he is using them as a pacifier which will be cleaner than an artificial pacifier that keeps falling to the ground. Your baby may be swallowing a lot of air due to faulty position of bottle feeding and could be a reason for regurgitation of milk. I suggest you change to cup feeds and introduce solids in his diet.

You means tonics. Well a child at seven months needs four times breast milk, 2-3 time s soup like food made at home of cereals, curd or milk. No necessity of tonics. You may add vitd sachets.

Lybrate-user nice to hear from apapa. Athree year old child caan have every thing you eat in your family in the morning you can cive his poha, idli, or paronthi and curd. If you have eggs then it could beegg with roti or with whole wheat bread. Around 11o'clock give some fruit in the lunch depending wether you take rice or chapatiwhater its fine along with some vegetable and daal. Add some salad also in the evening give him milk and egg or some home made snack at night also the child should eat from family pot. 1to1 111111111/2 chapati at each meal will suffice you can add milk in the morning hope this helps you.

Many children complain pain in the legs especially in the night. It's called growing pain. You can apply some analgesic balms and can give some analgesic like paracetamol if the pain is more.
