    Friend's son was just diagnosed with low growth hormone levels. He is five and he is short for his age, taht is why they ran the test. Other hormones appear in range. I was womdering whether DHEA supplementation could be an option for a child. I think low carb diet is a mus.

    I looked into this when we first started dealing with chao's growth issues.

    DHEA is naturally low in children, and begings to rise with the onset of puberty. high DHEA in children at a young age can lead to early puberty age 7/8 or 9, as well as other factors

    GH -issues - the doc should be looking at the HPA. before starting anything I'd look at exposure to artificial light and its impact on hormones (go back and read CT7 for a refresher on when/how GH is released) IIRC its released 2x in a 24hr cycle - one is contingent upon melatonin release, and the other is contingent upon cortisol/dopamine release

    I'd then start focusing on strict circadian cycles, as well as redox potential, and I'd add ice baths into the game.

    thank you, Shijin, that is pretty much what I already told her. We are back at the universal recipe!
