How Treatment Can Help
Treatment can delay puberty
until the appropriate time
Puberty is normal, but timing is everything. Treatment of central precocious puberty (CPP) can be a way to hit the puberty "pause" button. It allows a child to delay entering puberty until the time is appropriate. It may also spare them the confusion of coping with changes before they are physically and emotionally prepared.
Treatment may help children
reach adult height potential.
Central precocious puberty allows puberty to happen too early. The reason to treat CPP is to help prevent complications that can arise from CPP. One such complication is reduced adult height. When this happens, it can lead to a quick growth spurt that stops earlier than usual. In the short term, a child may appear taller than children their own age. In the long term, they may never reach their true adult height potential.
