Dwarfism is a condition that occurs in humans and animals. The most noticeable trait is that limbs are particularly small. For most adults who display the condition, the average height is less than 4 feet 10 inches (58 in; 147 cm).
However, the condition may be checked if discovered early. Surgery and hormone therapy are viable options, but once a child's growth plates fuse, it is unlikely that the condition can be checked.
Proper communication about dwarfism
There is still a lot of miscommunication about dwarfism. People who suffer the condition are constantly subject to ridicule. Discrimination is also a major problem that people with dwarfism face. This often leads to them becoming reclusive and antisocial.
