Hello nzox;
welcome to HealthcarMagic
Growth hormone works in cases where you need to get increase in height.Dwarfism if it is genetic there is a doubt whether it will be helpful in getting the desired increase in height.The best person to decide regarding this will be an Endocrinologist.Please consult a specialist to evaluate the patient after examination and investigation and if an Endocrinologist advises then it can be used according to the prescription.
Thanks
