My 12-year-old son was diagnosed with type 1 at the age of three. Today, I met with his endocrinologist who said that he would be as tall as almost 160 to 165 cm (5 feet, 3 inches to 5 feet, 4 inches), probably closer to 160 cm (5 feet, 3 inches), but she said she does not recommend usage of growth hormones because these medicines can make blood glocose control hard. I'm not sure how hard it can be. Is it impossible or just hard? Do these medicines have any other harmful side effects or not? Would you recommend that we pursue the hormones or just accept that he will probably be around 160 cm (5 feet, 3 inches)?
