Growth Hormone Deficiency

The lack of growth hormones prevents proper development.

Symptoms

Growth Hormone Deficiency is characterized by slow or late development, reduced energy levels, and impaired cardiac function. The Pituitary Gland secretes the growth hormone, and when there isn't enough of this hormone the body can't grow correctly. Most parts of the body are affected, including the bones, fat, and muscles.

Quote

When growth hormone deficiency is present, growth hormone replacement therapy has widespread health benefits on quality of life, body composition... and exercise capacity.

Treatment

Since there is a chemical imbalance the body can't fight the disease, however with daily shots of growth hormones the person can grow to an almost average height.
