What uncommon hormonal disorders (besides acromegaly & pituitary tumors) cause growth hormone overproduction? do they add height in those over 30?

Height: No, height does not increase in patients over 20-25. I do not quite follow why you think you have growth hormone overproduction. More important - you must see your primary doctor and have her/him evaluate all of your concerns. Please let me know how things develop.
