By starting and completing puberty too early, central precocious puberty (CPP) may prevent your child from reaching his or her full adult height.
Puberty usually causes a growth spurt. So, right now, your child might be taller than his or her peers, but a growth spurt that happens too early may mean your child could end up shorter as an adult than he or she might otherwise have been.
Your child’s healthcare professional may recommend a medicine called a GnRH agonist. This is a medicine that can help stop puberty by blocking the release of sex hormones in the body.
Just talking to your child about the condition can make a big difference. Let him or her know that puberty is a normal process that everyone goes through, but for some children, puberty happens earlier than it should.
