Summary

Growth hormone may increase the size of tonsils in the airway. Children who take growth hormone may be at an increased risk for sleep apnea. The goal of this study is to check for sleep problems in children before and after starting growth hormone. This research will also help us know if and when other children who start growth hormone need to be checked for sleep problems.
