Can short stature be prevented in children?
There is nothing that can outright prevent short stature. Some forms of short stature are affected by conditions during pregnancy and by the child's own environmental factors, especially nutrition and health. Therefore, the best thing you can do is to provide your child with a safe, stress-free and healthy environment during pregnancy and early development, when possible.
