    I agree with you Browneyedgirl. If it was my child I would be more concerned about the physiological alterations related to stunted growth rather than the psychological ramifications according to Maslow's law.

    My 3 year old was just diagnosed with precocious puberty. At age 3yr 2mo her bone age, according to hand/wrist x-ray, is that of a 5.5 yr old. I have to disagree with "letting mother nature take her course". If I choose not to treat her, she will start having her period about age 5. Her Estrogen level is at 49 when it should be less than 20. Her FSH is elevated also. She has had an MRI and it is not being caused by a cyst or tumor in/on/near her pituitary or her brain. I can't even begin to think of a good way to try and make her understand why she has the mood swings and emotions that she has, let alone to try and explain why she is having her period.

    I'm so sorry for you and your little one AngelFace but this thread slipped under the radar and is really asking for medical advice - its over 6 years old. I would suggest you address your questions to your daughter's doctor. Take care.
