Does growth hormone therapy really work in making you grow taller?

Does growth hormone therapy really work in making you grow taller?

Only if appropriate: Growth hormone will only increase height if one is still growing. Once the growth plates ("epiphyses") have fused, or closed, one cannot gain further height.

Depends: If you have a condition of true growth hormone deficiency they could. This could be documented by testing & given under the supervision of a pediatric endocrinologist. If you are just genetically short, or delayed, hormones would only push you to the height you would reach eventually. At more than 10K/yr the out of pocket cost is worth considering.It would never be covered if you are not deficient ...Read more

No: As a 19 year old male, your growth is likely done and your bones growth plates closed. At this age taking growth hormone will bulk muscle and could make bones thicker, but are not going to make them longer, and thus, no increase in height. I urge you to think twice about putting pituitary supplements you describe into your body without someone who knows all their affects guiding you- can be danger. ...Read more

Can you please explain post I read saying too much growth hormone can make adults @ any age grow taller. Does that mean acromegaly or something else?

Growth: Growth stops most often somewhere between age 20-25, after which time you are very unlikely to grow taller.. By now you should know whether you are still getting tall - highly unlikely. Acromegaly is unlikely to happen. It seems something is really worrying you - your Gynecologist will take you through all of your concerns. Please keep me posted.. ...Read more
