How is Dwarfism Diagnosed?

Dwarfism can usually be diagnosed based on physical appearance. In children, the doctor will measure them at each visit to ensure they are growing at a normal rate. If not, they may order hormone and genetic tests to make a diagnosis. You can find more information here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/dwarfism/DS01012/DSECTION=tests-and-diagnosis
