I have received your query regarding your daughter's height. Kindly get the following tests done so that we can have a look and then decide if her height can be increased:
1. Human Growth Hormone (random)
2. IGF 1
3. Thyroid Profile
4. Cortisol (random), and
5. X ray of the Left wrist (Bone Age Assessment)

If you are in Lahore, please call my secretary on 042-32591427, 042-32591427, so that he may guide you to the correct lab for investigations. In case you are outside Lahore, tell the lab that we need random values of the tests.
