The visits include clinical examination, DXA scan, x-ray for bone age, and blood tests including several parameters related to bone health, growth and puberty. Standardized questionnaires regarding quality of life (patients and parents) will be used, and certain questions regarding the importance of achieving normal height and puberty will be added.
