Treatments for Premature Adrenarche in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Premature adrenarche doesn't require treatment. However, it will cause your child's body to change sooner than those of her peers, and this may make her feel self-conscious.

It's important to reassure her that the changes in her body are completely normal, even if she is experiencing them earlier than other children. Helping your child cope with teasing from her peers, treating her appropriately for her age and boosting her self-esteem are all important ways of helping her adjust well.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
