Share:
  • What is the likely cause of my child’s condition?
  • If my child has congenital adrenal hyperplasia, could our other children have it too? Do I have it?
  • We’ve considered having another child. Will that child be at risk?
  • What is the best treatment option? Will my child need to take medicine? For how long?
  • Is my child at risk for any long-term health problems?
