Human Growth Hormones

Would you like to look younger, thinner, and more muscular? Human growth hormone (HGH) can help you achieve that goal. HGH acts as a mood lifter as well and can aid in users getting a better night’s sleep.

Long-term use improves cognitive function. If you would like to turn back the clock physically and mentally, speak to an experienced doctor regarding HGH.

Human Growth Hormone Explained

The body produces HGH in the pituitary gland. It aids in keeping tissue healthy and growing. In children and adolescents, HGH triggers growth. After the age of 35, the amount of HGH produced by the body slows. Replenishing the diminishing amount of HGH in adults helps prevent aging.

HGH helps the body retain calcium, necessary for healthy bones. It also stimulates the immune system.

Real HGH is available only by prescription. Patients self-administer HGH via subcutaneous injection. It is ill advised to use so-called HGH pills sold over the counter.

Hormone Growth Hormone Deficiency Symptoms

Adults with low levels of HGH may experience a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Dry skin
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of libido
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Weight increase, particularly around the mid-section

Besides helping patients with these specific issues, many people receiving HGH discern an overall increase in their quality of life. Such patients feel the way they did decades before in terms of overall health and vitality.

How Human Growth Hormone Can Help

Individuals experiencing loss of bone density and muscle mass may benefit from HGH. Such injections increase strength and endurance and reduce the percentage of body fat. Patients recovering from bone fractures find HGH speeds the healing process. HGH also decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease. In men, HGH is a natural way to treat erectile dysfunction.

Patients should view HGH therapy long-term and not as a short-term fix. HGH treatment requires regular monitoring by a doctor. HGH therapy does not work in a vacuum. Along with HGH injections, patients should adopt a healthy lifestyle, including a regular exercise program and nutritious diet.

All of these factors work synergistically with HGH therapy to produce the best results. Patients who continue to consume junk food and lead a sedentary lifestyle will not receive the full benefits HGH therapy can provide.

HGH Risk Factors and Side Effects

Certain people should not use HGH, and others may experience side effects. People with uncontrolled diabetes are not candidates for HGH therapy. Cancer patients should not receive HGH, nor should anyone currently suffering a serious illness. Patients with severe respiratory ailments or uncontrolled asthma are not good candidates for HGH therapy.

At the initiation of HGH therapy, muscle weakness, numbness, or pins and needles may occur. Carpal tunnel syndrome may develop. HGH may temporarily cause blood sugar levels to increase and blood pressure to rise. Swelling of the face, fingers, or toes may occur, but decreasing the HGH dose generally, resolves the problem.
