HGH is naturally secreted by Somatotrophic cells in the Pituitary glands which help in stimulating cell reproduction/regeneration of cells in many organs of human body & in some animals. It is a stress hormone that helps in modulating changes that occur due to stress. Hence, it is prescribed as a drug to treat growth disorders in both children & adults.

Adults will be prone to increased risk of bone fracture, cardiovascular diseases, fatigue, increased weight that leads to many other problems.
