What Are the Different Human Development Growth Disorders?

Most diseases and illnesses today can now be cured, thanks to the innovation in the medical field and most of it may be treated easily. Unfortunately, human development disorders are not the same. Even though patients experiencing maladies related to human development growth can undergo some therapies, it is almost impossible for them to be treated fully and live a normal life just like everybody else does unless they go through a hormone treatment. Below are some of the most common disorders that may delay one’s physical and mental maturity.

1. Failure to Thrive – the FTT is not actually considered as a specific disorder but a condition instead. Signs and symptoms of FTT can be seen as early as infancy till their toddler stage. Children who are affected by the FTT are unable to gain weight or losing weight drastically, delay in developmental milestones, and showing lack of interest in the surroundings.

2. Constitutional growth delay – best known as the Bone Age delay, children who are suffering from the said disorder reach physical maturity later than their peers. Some people call this growth pattern as the “late bloomer” since they tend to have their pubertal spurt a couple of years behind than the people of their same age.

3. Familial short stature – this disorder if possible if both parents are suffering from genetic short stature as well. Although the growth rate will still be normal, the child’s physical growth (size and height) will be limited and close to the size of his/her parents.

With these three mentioned disorders, it is very important that the child would not experience any other medical condition that would require therapy or any other health-threatening situations. With their human development growth disorders, it can be very difficult for them to cope up and nurse back to health.
