Another Logan Update

Logan had his Endocrinologist appointment this morning. (EARLY! 8 am!!) Dr. Endo went over Logan’s previous lab results and growth chart with me so I actually have numbers and meanings! (Except, I’m not really sure what all those numbers actually mean 😉 )

His IGF-1 number (the growth hormone) is 45. Ideally, it should be between 51 and 303.

His IGF-BP3 number is 2.8. This one’s fine as it should be between 0.8 and 3.9.

His ESR is 26…which is “medium high” since it should be between 0 and 15. This number elevates if you’re sick though (and Logan had just gotten over pink eye and a cold).

SO….more blood drawn (and more donuts promised) to recheck those numbers. We’ll get those results and have a follow-up in 4 months.

Dr.  Endo isn’t actually too worried. He figures that the appointment in 4 months will be the last one and then Dr. Pedi will just need to keep track of Logan’s growth charts.

We’ll see!

  1. Good luck. keep us updated! It’s always nice when a specialist isn’t too worried!

  2. Great news! You might want to remember that you were a peanut once upon a time. Love you.

  3. At least the tests results give some guidance which is good. The tougher item might be if they give you a choice re: hormones. Check out Stephanie Wilder Taylor’s blog (Baby on Bored – I link to it) – her daughter may end up very small and the endocrinologist has mentioned hormones. It can be a touch decision. Good luck – thinking of you all.

  4. That sounds good! I’m glad they think everything is okay!
