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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
