Jayden had this done earlier this year. She was chronologically nine years and eight months old, but her bone age was seven years, ten months. The endo said that the margin of error is two years. She was looking for a combination of growth hormone levels and the bone age, and thyroid levels. For Jayden, her gh was high, and her thyroid was normal, and the bone age was within two years, so we're just watching and waiting.
