The endocrine regulation of these physical changes involves gonadal steroids and growth hormone (GH), which have both additive and independent effects on the adolescent growth spurt. Both GH and sex steroids augment growth during puberty. The increased secretion of sex steroids initiates the pubertal growth spurt in both sexes, with sex steroids modulating the secretion and synthesis of GH (Brook & Hindmarsh, 1992). Gonadal steroids also have the effect of limiting final height via their effects on skeletal maturation and epiphyseal growth plate closure (Brook & Hindmarsh, 1992).
