A member asked:

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

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.
