HGH and exercise
Apr 8, 2016
Hello I exercise daily but I have a medical condition that causes HGH deficiency. If I continue to exercise will I grow taller or gain any benifets? I'm 15 and a girl but I had early puberty. Please help!

Hello and thanks for posting.
If you have human growth hormone deficiency, replacement therapy is both indicated and will help you grow to a more normal stature.
At age 15, you almost certainly have additional growth potential, but I would discuss this with your care provider, who will know more about the particulars of your health situation.
Be well, BY
