Mr. Lopez has a 7-year-old son with growth hormone (GH) deficiency. He shares to the nurse the desire of his son to play ball games. However, his wife feels the child will be in danger since he is smaller than the other children. In planning anticipatory guidance for these parents, the nurse should keep in mind which of the following?
A. The child should be allowed to play because doing so can foster healthy self-esteem.
B. The risk for fractures is increased because a GH deficiency results in fragile bones.
C. Activity could aggravate insulin sensitivity, causing hyperglycemia.
D. Activity would aggravate the child’s joints, already over tasked by obesity.
