In brief: Children or adults?
Clearly the stigma of "shortness" is ever present.
But in children, approval is given when there is a deficiency of growth hormone measured by a provocative test. Adults with growth hormone deficit, secondary to head trauma or pituitary surgery are candidates as well, but the amount given is much less, since their bone growth plates are closed. Diabetic problems are not scene in european registries.
