PWSA (USA) Growth Charts Now Available!
A child’s growth is the single best indicator of their health – important data for every pediatric appointment. For children with Prader-Willi Syndrome, the pattern is not typical, and interpreting each height and weight can create questions and worries for parents and professionals. With the support of PWSA (USA) and a team of researchers, growth charts were developed in 2016 for children with PWS and are now available on our website. These include charts for infants and for children up to age 18 years who have been treated with growth hormone. There are also growth charts for infants with PWS who have not been treated with growth hormone; these were developed in 2011.
These helpful charts can be obtained here: http://www.pwsausa.org/medical-issues-a-z/
