These 3 Things Can Cause People To Become Dwarfs – Parents Should Take Note

As a parent, it's sad to see your child not growing no matter how well they eat. This can be a worrying situation for most parents. Various reasons can explain a child's growth retardation. It varies from disease to birth defects.

While stunted growth can be corrected, especially when it is caused by malnutrition, that caused by dwarves can never be corrected. It can also remain a constant condition that the individual must learn to manage.

Dwarfness in medicine is a condition that is less than or less than 127 cm (50 in) tall. Some dwarfs measure less than 64 cm (24 in) at maturity. The term dwarves is usually used for dwarves who are physically proportioned.

Here are some of the known causes of dwarfism and, if possible, some ways to avoid them. It should be emphasized that in some cases parents can do nothing.


It is a deficiency disease caused by an inherited deficiency of thyroxine, a hormone secreted by the thyroid gland, and is characterized by poor mental and physical development. This disease causes permanent intellectual disability leading to a semi-disabled or semi-disabled state.

Women who have a goiter need to talk to their doctor during prenatal care to receive proper early treatment. This is the best known solution so far.


This refers to the location where a child develops dwarfism after inheriting the gene from one of the parents. This should explain why the dwarves passed through several families. People who wish to avoid such conditions should seek to marry outside the family.

Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is a genetic disorder characterized by a wide skull, blunt facial features, short stature, and learning disabilities. It is caused by the presence of an extra copy of a certain chromosome. In the third case, the parents usually can't do anything about it.

Dwarves shouldn't look weird. These children need support, love, and attention.
