Puberty

Puberty is the process of changing from boy to man or girl to woman. This needs to happen in a timely and orderly manner. An appropriate puberty has many important implications for adolescent and adult life, namely, mentally growing up, reproductive potential, and healthy bone development for the rest of the person’s life. In a few instances, puberty comes either too early or too late, or happens in a haphazard manner. In these children, both the cause of the pubertal disturbance and the effect of the pubertal disturbance needs to be looked into and managed as per each case. Given that these conditions are painless, they tend to get overlooked very easily. If you think your child may belong to this group, it is very much advisable to get a Paediatric Endocrinology consultation.
