Early Puberty in Girls: The Essential Guide to Coping with This Common Problem

Early Puberty in Girls: The Essential Guide to Coping with This Common Problem Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The definitive book about early puberty in girls—what it is, how it happens, when to be concerned, and how it should be treated.

In recent years, the issue of early puberty in girls has become a well-publicized topic. But the messages from the medical establishment and the media have been confusing and often conflicting. Now Dr. Paul Kaplowitz, a pediatric endocrinologist who has treated children for more than twenty years, has written a comprehensive and completely accessible book on the subject—the perfect guide for parents concerned about their daughters’ premature development. Inside, they will find the answers to many questions, including

What are the hormonal and physical changes of normal puberty? Breast development, pubic and underarm hair, body odor, menarche
(a girl’s first period), and the pubertal growth spurt
How do we know if puberty is starting too early? The age and circumstances under which a girl can mature too soon; why this is occurring earlier than in the past, and why that age is earlier for African American girls
What effects does the early onset of puberty have on the behavior and emotional health of young girls? From anxiety and withdrawal to worries about stunted growth, earlier periods, and earlier sexual activity
Is it because the environment or our fats cells? An in-depth look at the potential culprits: chemicals and hormones in the environment, family relationships, stress, and increasing obesity
To treat or not to treat? The six essential questions whose answers will determine whether treatment is necessary for your early-maturing daughter
How should a family prepare for a visit to a specialist? Important tips for getting the most out of a visit to a pediatric endocrinologist

Dr. Kaplowitz also details extensive case histories that will help parents understand the real issues that may appear in girls’ lives. Reassuring, authoritative, and thoroughly detailed, Early Puberty in Girls is a must-have book for every parent of a young girl.

Review:

"This is a practical, illuminating, informative book on precocious puberty that provides guidance and well-distilled practical information for parents." Melvin M. Grumbach, M.D., Edward B. Shaw Professor of Pediatrics Department of Pediatrics, University of California

Synopsis:

A leading pediatric endocrinologist delivers this definitive and essential guide to early puberty in girls--what it is, how it happens, when to be concerned, and how it should be treated. Using the most recent clinical studies, Dr. Kaplowitz answers important questions on many parents' minds.
