Are there any other conditions besides acromegaly where adults, 15 years past puberty, have excessive growth hormone? do those cause height increase?

Acromegaly: Acromegaly is most commonly associated with excessive growth hormone production and this can continue well past puberty. A consultation with an endocrinologist would be helpful for further advice.
