Human growth hormone (HGH, hGH or GH) serves an important role in adult life, improving lean muscle mass, bone density, physical strength., aerobic capacity and — at the same time — promoting fat loss by reducing visceral fat accumulation. It’s perfectly normal as we age for HGH to reduce, but some men may find further deficiencies that negatively impact their life. Human growth hormone replacement therapy can help men combat these negative effects and serve as an anti-ageing therapy.
What Is Human Growth Hormone?
As the name suggests, the human growth hormone is an important mediator of the human growth process. It is a small protein that is made naturally within the body. It is created by the pituitary gland and then secreted into the bloodstream. Growth hormone is something we release a lot of during childhood and teenage years (when we’re growing the most), but as we reach adulthood, the production of this hormone slows down.
While a decrease in growth hormone is normal, some people suffer from a further deficiency that could impact their quality of life. Human growth hormone injections are a fantastic, low-risk option that can help if you are experiencing a loss of muscle mass, increased abdominal fat, poor sexual performance, lack of energy, mood swings and disturbed sleep from deficient growth hormone.
How Can a Lack of Human Growth Hormone Affect You?
Sadly, after the third decade of adult life, growth hormone (scientifically known as somatotropin) secretion declines progressively by approximately 15% every decade. Many age-related changes resonate with those of adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD). Adults with AGHD exhibit regression in body-mass composition, physical ability, skin quality, the immune system, memory processing, cognitive function and, more importantly, quality of life. Lack of GH can also be a factor in anxiety and depression, weight gain, risk of heart disease and risk of strokes. Many men use human growth hormone with bodybuilding and sports, but we don’t recommend you try this without medical supervision.
If you feel like you might be someone with AGHD or you think you may have a GH deficiency, set up a free consultation to discuss your concerns, and we’ll come up with a bespoke plan that meets your needs. The results will help you start feeling like yourself again and help balance out some of the negative symptoms you’ve experienced.
How Does HGH Replacement Therapy Work?
Human growth hormone replacement therapy is the treatment of choice to harvest the benefits of growth hormone. By using recombinant human growth hormone (rHGH), AGHD can be treated under professional medical supervision by injecting additional HGH into the body. The treatment is relatively quick, and many patients start feeling the positive results within weeks.
HGH Therapy Clinic is experienced in treating adults that are suffering from symptoms of growth hormone deficiency to help them combat negative symptoms. GH replacement therapy can be done at home (self-administered) or injected by a doctor. For the best results — especially for those with an existing deficiency — the treatments may be administered for months or years.
We will ensure that, during this time and during the entire treatment, you are regularly checked and your condition is monitored by a doctor. This will include regular blood tests to monitor hormone levels in the blood and also cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels and bone density.
When choosing a doctor for HGH therapy, it’s important that you choose someone who is experienced and practised in this treatment process. Here at HGH Therapy Clinic, we have the experience and knowledge to deliver the right results to you. If you decide you want to explore this type of hormone treatment, it is not something you should do on your own without the supervision of a doctor.
Beginning Your HGH Therapy Treatment
Those with adult growth hormone deficiency may benefit tremendously from HGH therapy. We offer a medically-supervised programme and will look after you, monitoring your progress closely. If you don’t have AGHD but notice you are experiencing the unpleasant symptoms we’ve discussed earlier, we can see if human growth hormone injections are right for you.
