Patient :I am a 19 year-old male standing 5' 5", weighing about 125 lbs. I have only grown an inch in height since the age of 14. I have sickeningly small bone structure for a male & I engage in weightlifting to compensate for my lack of self-esteem. Everybody has outgrown me, and my low self-esteem is extremely debilitating. Is there any hope left for me? And would seeing my GP to inquire about growth hormones a sensible thing to do?
