Thank you for writing to us.

The growth hormone range for a seven year old child should be between 10-20 ng/mL (440-880 pmol/L).

Growth hormone secretion has a pulsatile nature after the newborn period, varying from one child to another, which is why a more exact value can be predicted. Also why a rough estimate of growth hormone level for children is given (as mentioned in the above paragraph).

I hope this information helps. Do write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be glad to help. Wishing your son good health.

Best wishes.
