Bone marrow transplant and hormones
Some children might need to undergo a Bone Marrrow Transplant (BMT) for various reasons like Thalassemia, Leukaemia , Immune deficiency etc. Health promotion of these children by ensuring an optimal growth and hormonal milieu, amongst multiple other things is very important. The BMT procedure itself can lead to hormonal hits. Whilst the BMT may be successful, we need to also ensure the overall quality of the child’s life is optimised. For the hormonal and growth aspects you will need a Paediatric endocrinology consultation.
