What causes fetal growth restriction?

What causes fetal growth restriction?

MF/placental factors: Maternal-fetal and placental etiologies can all cause fetal growth restriction. Severa fetal syndromes can lead to fgr (e.g. Down, patau, triploidy, edwards, noonan's, digeorge). Multifetal pregnancies are at increased risk for fgr; this can result in fetal demise, fetal brain injury, cerebral palsy or even normal outcomes in non-syndromic cases. Placental infarcts, hypertension, lupus: culprits. ...Read more

Does congenital heart defects lead to growth changes?

Does congenital heart defects lead to growth changes?

They can/some don't: Congenital heart defects include a number of conditions that vary greatly in their impact on final growth.

The cyanotic or blue baby group of defects are more likely to do this.Some defects, like the common small VSD self correct & seldom if ever alter the patients life. ...Read more

Please tell me, could having mild cerebral palsy prolong growth development, cause slow growth, or stunt growth?

Please tell me, could having mild cerebral palsy prolong growth development, cause slow growth, or stunt growth?

Cerebral palsy is a : group of disorders of impaired motor functions described by the way they limit mobility, posture, arm/hand use & oral motor skills. In kids with CP, growth is slower than that of neurotypical peers, the difference is greater with age. Puberty may be delayed & last longer. Poor oral motor function, endocrine problems & gastroesophageal reflux all can impact nutrition, growth & body composition. ...Read more

Does prematurity effect your growth or strength as a teen?

Does prematurity effect your growth or strength as a teen?

Depends on problems: While the majority of premature infants do just fine, those that were particularily early or sick may manifest problems even at later ages. We even now are finding out even early term babies (37-38 weeks) may not be as smart as those that "cook" a little longer. But it does not mean things can't be overcome. Early intervention in babies/kids with problems is essential and should be ongoing! ...Read more

Dont ignore!doc said excessive ejeculation can increase testestreone level high cause premature early fusion of growth plates stunting height increase?

Dont ignore!doc said excessive ejeculation can increase testestreone level high cause premature early fusion of growth plates stunting height increase?

Go see another doc: Stop feeling guilty & depressed. Excessive ejaculation won't increase your testosterone and it has nothing to do w/your height. Otherwise, all men would be "short". If you haven't had a bone age xray done yet, get one to give yourself an idea of what to expect. If growth plates are fused, you won't grow any taller. But if growth plates are open, you may still have a chance. ...Read more

What effect does an infant's environment have on his growth and development?

What effect does an infant's environment have on his growth and development?

Transactional theory: of development fits with current knowledge of neurogenetics: a developmental trajectory is determined by the ongoing interaction of an infant with its physical & social environment. Chronic antenatal anxiety/depression can alter fetal brain development as much as postnatal depression alters infant brain development. Adult outcomes differ greatly in infants with enriched vs. adverse environments. ...Read more

Can a malnourished children with stunted growth catch up growth by therapy such as growth hormone ,he is now ,21yo 5months ,how effective it is?

Depends: Linear growth (height) can only increase if the growth centers in the long bones are open.Most close at 16-17 in males, but malnutrition may keep them open.An x-ray of the wrist/hand can identify growth centers.If open, good nutrition & hormones can help, if closed, they cannot reopen and linear growth is finished. ...Read more

How does nature affect a child's growth and development?

How does nature affect a child's growth and development?

Nature vs nurture: A child's growth and development begins at birth. Nature dictates stages and changes in development in physical, social, behavioral, and emotional areas. Gross motor skills precede fine motor skills (e.g.crawling before walking), isolated play precedes co active and cooperative play, babbling precedes word formation, and self-focus precedes recognition of others opinions all leading to adulthood. ...Read more

Does isoimmunization and anemia cause slow social development?

Does isoimmunization and anemia cause slow social development?

Generally no.: Isoimmunization is an immune-mediated process that is caused by mother antibodies crossing the placenta and targeting the babies red blood cells (this is also called rh disease). The resulting fetal anemia can be mild to severe. Whether normal growth and development are compromised is dependent upon the severity and length of the anemia and any associated cognitive dysfunction which may occur. ...Read more

Docs said growth hormone could be the cause of height growth spurts @ ages 39 & 41. What GH issue would cause that--acromegaly or something else?

Docs said growth hormone could be the cause of height growth spurts @ ages 39 & 41. What GH issue would cause that--acromegaly or something else?

None!: If you had gigantism, you would not stop growing & the growth plates not fuse & could grow more in one year than another, but by this age this would be obvious. Acromegaly, may cause the hands & shoe size to increase as well as bones of the skull & other areas to thicken, but once the growth plates have closed (varies in men, but almost all by 18) you will not grow in ht from GH! Get 2nd opinion. ...Read more
