Hi , I had a former 26 weeker, who is now 23 months old, and weighs 17 and half pounds. Her height is 30 inches. She is very small and petite. I was wondering if growth hormone injections work? and when can you start giving them to children?? Also does medicad cover, or do you have to pay up front??? I also wanted to know what are the risks of having these injections, and are they really worth it?? Please, if anyone has any information about this.... please let me know.
