Answer

During childhood and adolescence, patients should visit a pediatric endocrinologist at regular intervals.

Attention should be paid to growth and development, thyroid status, and osteoporosis prevention with growth hormone, estrogens, and progestins.

Patients on growth hormone should be seen every 3-6 months.
