In most cases of growth hormone deficiency, no single cause can be identified. However, growth hormone deficiency causes can be different in both children and adults.

Researchers think growth hormone deficiency is rarely caused by genetics: It's not typically passed from parents to their children. But experts think that children with certain types of physical problems, such as a cleft palate, are more likely to develop growth hormone deficiency.

To understand what may cause growth hormone deficiency, you need to understand the condition. Here's what happens when you have growth hormone deficiency: Your pituitary gland—located at the base of your brain—is supposed to produce growth hormone, which is called somatotropin. This hormone stimulates growth, which keep your muscles, tissues, and bones healthy.

The main cause of a growth hormone deficiency is simply called aging. We may notice right away that a child is almost always happy, carefree, full of energy, heals easily, has no wrinkles and aside from out of the ordinary medical issues, is healthy most of the time. This is in great contrast to older adults.
