Prolonged Advair 230 usage and stunted growth

Hi there,
My son was on Advair 230 most of the year for several years in a row, from around 3rd or 4th grade through 6th grade. He has grown less than a head taller than he was four years ago. Met with an endocrinologist in June. She did a bone scan on his hand and said he had less than a year's bone growth left. She didn't think his expected growth height would catch up, due to long term use of such a high level of Advair. Hope she is wrong. The studies where people catch up are from moderate levels of inhaled steroids. Anyone else out there on prolonged use of Advair 230?
