The test is done in the Endocrinology Outpatient Clinic. When you arrive to clinic, we measure your child’s height and weight.
Your child will then go into a patient room where the IV (intravenous) catheter is placed. This is used to draw the blood samples. We will give the medicine injection just under the skin.
The test takes 30-90 minutes. The child is awake throughout the test. Parents can stay with the child during the test. At the end of the test, we remove the IV catheter.
