In England, Dr. Rehab Al-Jumaily faced a common problem of a parent with a child: bullies. However, rather than the usual calls to parents or teachers, Al-Jumaily decided a more chemical approach: she helped her son bulk up with growth hormones.
Al-Jumaily now may lose her practice over the violations.
Al-Jumaily, 51, explained that (since she is only 5 feet tall), she was afraid that her 13-year-old would be a shrimp and get pushed around — particularly after a bullying incident. Her daughter is only 4ft 10in.
However, at 5ft 2in, the boy was six inches over the normal threshold for hormone treatment and actually half an inch above the average height for his age.
To make maters worse, Al-Jumaily is accused of using fake names and concealing the treatments.
