The factors to which society functions as a whole

Growth hormone Growth hormone Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. It has many functions including maintaining normal body structure and metabolism.

Growth hormone is released into the bloodstream from the anterior pituitary gland. The pituitary gland also produces other hormones that have different functions from growth hormone.

You and Your Hormones

Growth hormone acts on many parts of the body to promote growth in children. Once the growth plates in the bones epiphyses have fused growth hormone does not increase height. In adults, it does not cause growth but it helps to maintain normal body structure and metabolismincluding helping to keep blood glucose levels within set levels.

How is growth hormone controlled? This release is controlled by two other hormones that are released from the hypothalamus a part of the brain: Growth hormone levels are increased by sleep, stress, exercise and low glucose levels in the blood.

They also increase around the time of puberty.

Growth hormone release is lowered in pregnancy and if the brain senses high levels of growth hormone or insulin-like growth factors already in the blood. What happens if I have too much growth hormone? Not surprisingly, too much growth hormone causes too much growth.

In adults, excessive growth hormone for a long period of time produces a condition known as acromegalyin which patients have swelling of the hands and feet and altered facial features. These patients also have organ enlargement and serious functional disorders such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. This condition is more common after middle-age when growth is complete so affected individuals do not get any taller. This is commonly known as gigantism a very large increase in height.

What is growth hormone?

Overproduction of growth hormone is diagnosed by giving a sugary drink and measuring the growth hormone level over the next few hours. The sugar should cause growth hormone production to reduce. However, this does not happen in acromegaly.

What happens if I have too little growth hormone? Too little growth hormone deficiency results in poor growth in children.

In adults, it causes a reduced sense of wellbeing, increased fatincreased risk of heart disease and weak heart, muscles and bones. The condition may be present from birth where the cause can be unknown, genetic or due to injury to the pituitary gland during development or at birth. The main treatment is to replace the growth hormone using injections - either once a day or several times a week. In the past, growth hormone treatment was stopped at the end of growth.

It is now clear that growth hormone contributes to both bone mass and muscle mass reaching the best possible level, as well as reducing fat mass during development to an adult. The specialist is therefore likely to discuss the benefits of continuing growth hormone after growth has completed until age 25 to make sure bone and muscle mass reach the best possible level. Additionally, growth hormone has been linked to a sensation of wellbeing, specifically energy levels.
