Who are you?? You look very familiar.
Im the human growth hormone! I regulate growth and various other things we use every day!!
Ohhh I see! Well I think i'm healthy so I won't need you much longer.
I thought that since now i'm fully grown you don't work anymore?
Well when you were a little kid you needed me to fuse your growth plates and grow you bones, but now that you're an adult I just continue to help keep your bones and muscles healthy!!
Well be lucky you were born with the right amount of me! Too little can result in dwarfism or very weak muscles/bones!
Okay... well i'm taller than you so I dont get why I still need them.
I do more then just control your growth! I regulate your metabolism and also maintain your blood glucose to help reduce your risk of heart disease!
Well what if I was born with too many growth hormones?
Too many is something called hypersecretion which can lead to a disease called gigantism in which the person grows unusually tall.
How do you know where to start working?
I get a call from the pituitary gland when I'm needed, then rush into the blood to quickly get to work!
Well I'm glad I met you! Now I know exactly why human growth hormones are so important!
Anytime! Feel free to ask questions whenever you need!!
