In brief: Growth hormone

Adult ghd is treated with growth hormone injection in adult doses which is typically one tenth of the pediatric dose.

In brief: Growth hormone

Simply replacing it with gh (now manufactured by recombinant dna technology similar to insulin).
There is however mild degrees of ghd (appropriately named gh insufficiency) that may not need replacement therapy if no metabolic detangements are captured, such has decreased bone density, dyslipidemia, increased central adiposity etc.
