Check all questions you want to discuss with your child's doctor or endocrinologist.
Check all that apply:
What tests are used to determine if my child has CPP? Will my child need all tests, or just a few? What will the tests tell me about my child?

Does my child need treatment for CPP? What treatments are available? How does the treatment work and what does it do? Are there any side effects?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of each treatment? Are there risks to treatment? Do you have a recommended treatment? Why? Will my child be able to go through a normal puberty after treatment?
