Has anyone any experience of this?
DS is 8, has Dyspraxia and Hypermobility and has been showing signs of pubertyfor 6-12 months.
Dr has referred him for blood tests, just wondering what the future may hold... am feeling very anxious

My son had this at 8 too. He had to have various tests, including an MRI, blood tests, bone age X-ray etc. It all came back as his bone age etc all coming out at about 10, so 2 years ahead. He now had injections every 3 months (in his buttock - they alternate sides) and also he has checkups at hospital 3 times a year.
Please don't worry too much. DS is 10 now and it barely affects him at all apart from the above. Anything I can help with, please do ask x
