very late puberty so would growth hormones help?

Puberty: Whether a boy as late as 14 or a girl as late as 16, a consultation with an endocrinologist is very important to determine why puberty is late in onset. If growth hormone deficiency is established, growth hormone will definitely help. However, if there is something wrong with the testes or ovaries, treatment will be different.

Gh: Not really related unless you are short. You may have adult gh deficiency. Too late to get any height. But it could positively affect your metabolism.
