Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is an important aspect in growth and physical development that is produced in the pituitary gland. It is a critical component of HPA axis (Hypothalmus, Pituitary and Adrenals) and their role in physical and sexual development.
Athletes and aging men, are typically interested in Human Growth Hormone, because they want to build muscle, lose weight or increase endurance. Many do require HGH supplementation due to a deficiency of growth hormone as HGH levels start to decline for men after the age of 30. However, the symptoms men are seeing are often also a result of low and declining testosterone levels. Men that do have low levels of human growth hormone have a variety of options considering the considerable cost of HGH treatment. Prescribing HGH for aging or development without a diagnoses of AGHD is not legal
Adults and children diagnosed with Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency should seek help from an expert specialist. Hormone Therapeutics physicians can examine your HGH levels, along with your other hormone levels, and help devise a program that balances them along with nutrition, fitness and supplement programs. These efforts will typically see an increase in your body’s natural production of human growth hormone.
This occurs when the pituitary gland does not produce appropriate levels of human growth hormone. HGH is relied on for development from childhood to adulthood and it is still needed for adults to maintain an appropriate body-fat ratio, to aid in calcium and protein absorption and promote continued strength of muscles and bones. Children with AGHD will see stunted growth. Because many of these issues are also linked to low testosterone levels the only way to understand what is occurring is to test your IGF-1 and IGF-BP levels and undergo an ADHG deficiency test.
Here is a list of the gradual improvements one diagnosed with AGHD would experience with their increase in HGH.
