What is hypochondroplasia?

Hypochondroplasia is a form of short-limbed dwarfism. This condition affects the conversion of cartilage into bone (a process called ossification), particularly in the long bones of the arms and legs. Hypochondroplasia is similar to another skeletal disorder called achondroplasia, but the features tend to be milder.

All people with hypochondroplasia have short stature. The adult height for men with this condition ranges from 138 centimeters to 165 centimeters (4 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 5 inches). The height range for adult women is 128 centimeters to 151 centimeters (4 feet, 2 inches to 4 feet, 11 inches).

People with hypochondroplasia have short arms and legs and broad, short hands and feet. Other characteristic features include a large head, limited range of motion at the elbows, a sway of the lower back (lordosis), and bowed legs. These signs are generally less pronounced than those seen with achondroplasia and may not be noticeable until early or middle childhood. Some studies have reported that a small percentage of people with hypochondroplasia have mild to moderate intellectual disability or learning problems, but other studies have produced conflicting results.

new happenings

I have been taken a product that changed the way I view medicine and synthetics it is called Max gxl. I was talking to one of the ladies who is doing research for this pill and autism for my other son but when I told her about Coleman's Growth Hormones she said to immediately put him on this too. I is something that flushes the toxins out of our bodies and she said that it would allow the GH to work even better if he were to take this. I have been taking Max gxl for 4 months and my thyroid problems has completely gone away. My blood work came back and said no problems with my thyroid exist. Cool huh? I'm skeptical but it has worked for me and no Ill try it on my sons. Ill let you know how they do.

measure of a man

Today Carter, my six year old was playing with the measuring tape and asked if we could see how tall he was. We did and he was about 4'3. then we measured Coleman who is four years old and he was 36 in which I believe is 3' feet tall. Is that right? It was was spare of the moment so it was probably inaccurate.
