Growth hormone is a major body system metabolic hormone that controls lipid, protein and carbohydrate homeostasis. The principal form of growth hormone is around 22 kD and contains 191 amino acids, known as somatotrope. This hormone is produced by growth hormone cells known as somatotropes located in adenohypophysis of pituitary gland. Growth hormone deficiency is classified into four categories as pituitary or classic GHD, hypothalamic GHD, functional growth hormone deficiency and idiopathic GHD. In case of pituitary GHD, there is an abnormality in brain, due to which there is an incapacity to produce growth hormone. Hypothalamic GHD occurs when there is failure of hypothalamic function of transmitting neurocrine messaging hormone, which directs the pituitary gland to produce growth hormone. Functional GHD occurs when other metabolic hormone fails to secrete or impaired metabolic function due to various unknown etiologies. Idiopathic GHD occurs due to unknown causes. There are various psychological symptoms that occur in growth hormone deficiency such as depression, lack of concentration, emotional distress and poor memory. The disease can also lead to increased fat mass and extra cellular fluid volume, diminished muscle strength and stamina, lethargy and depression.
