Acromegaly: Over secretion of growth hormone is caused by a benign tumor of the pituitary gland. It causes a disorder called acromegaly, in which there is enlargement of the soft tissues of the body, as well as organ enlargement. Without treatment it will lead to heart failure, arthritis, excess sweats, distortion of facial features, headaches, possible visual loss, increased risk of colon cancer. ...Read more

Ghrelin and GHRH:
The production of GH is triggered when GHRELIN, produced in the stomach and GH RELEASING HORMONE, produced in the hypothalamus, are ACTIVATED. These turned on hormones stimulate the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland to release the GH.
GH then regulates several physiologic processes, including protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism; stimulates mitosis, cell differentiation and cell growth. ...Read more
Yes: Growth hormone is important for the development of the bones of the face. Persons with growth hormone excess have characteristic facial features including coarsening of their facial features and enlargement of the jaw. These changes can also be seen in a much milder form in children who receive growth hormone for growth hormone deficiency. Children with untreated growth hormone deficiency often have a condition known as midface hypoplasia where the bones in the middle of the face do not develop to be as fully formed as children with normal growth hormone secretion. ...Read more
