Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Yes it is possible and hormones do play a role in growth of a person.  There is a network of hormones, each influencing the other in action. Generally growth hormone is one in which if there is a deficiency a person wont be able to grow tall. Thyroid hormone excess will induce weight loss etc. So its complex. For more on this issue you have to consult a endocrinologist in person for further evaluation and management.  Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
