She claimed that children with pituitary growth conditions must i.e “mandatory” get treatment for their condition.
Katie Joy feels for the star of I Am Shaunna Rae. However, she wrote, “TLC is promoting misinformation about pan-hypopituitarism – a super rare disease that doesn’t need a network screwing up the true reality.” Then she noted, “Growth hormone shots are 100% mandatory and effective – not optional to ensure the child grows but also so their heart functions.” So, she feels that TLC is “[exploiting]…a woman with a disability while turning her into a fetish for pedophiles.” So, she just “can’t” with it.
According to Katie, because of I Am Shaunna Rae, the media misreports the condition and treatability of Hypopituitarism. Well, it’s a complex condition and you can read all about it on the website of PMC. It’s not clear though, that treatment for the condition is mandated in US law.
