Aging is inevitable—fortunately, looking your age does not necessarily have to be. People have been searching for the Fountain of Youth since time immemorial, but you arguably already possess the substance that can slow down the aging process, and it is known as human growth hormone (HGH).

Unfortunately, HGH levels decrease with age, but HGH treatments can serve as a proverbial Fountain of Youth. Long Island human growth hormone treatment may be able to help you look younger, feel better, and achieve the goal of optimal health. If you would like to know more or wish to receive this type of treatment, get in touch with a qualified doctor today.

What is Human Growth Hormone?

HGH levels begin dropping once a person enters their 30s, and by the next decade, the results are plain to see. That is about the time some of the effects of a lack of HGH in the body become noticeable, including:

  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Lower sex drive
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain
  • Dry skin
  • Hair loss
  • Depression

Because HGH aids in healing, those with low HGH levels may also notice that wounds take longer to heal. HGH also helps the sleep cycle, so fatigue or lack of sleep is another potential sign of low HGH levels.

Once HGH treatments start, patients may notice various benefits such as:

  • Increased muscle mass
  • Increased bone density
  • Improved libido
  • Lower cholesterol
  • More energy
  • Weight loss
  • Improved immune function

Furthermore, when people receiving HGH treatments do suffer from lesions, fractures, and other minor injuries, they tend to heal more quickly than they would if they were not receiving HGH treatment. In general, recipients of human Long Island human growth hormone treatment report overall better health as well as an improved sense of well-being and quality of life.

Side Effects and Contraindications

Since HGH is a natural substance, HGH treatments are safe for the most part, but as with any medical treatment there are always potential side effects. Some patients may develop swelling in their legs or arms, joint or muscle pain, or even carpal tunnel syndrome.

Men using HGH are at increased risk of breast enlargement, a condition known as gynecomastia. Changing the HGH dosage will generally stop these side effects

However, some people should not receive HGH treatments at all. These include people diagnosed with cancer, heart disease, or chronic serious illnesses, as well as diabetics, in light of the fact that HGH may increase insulin resistance.

The Doctor’s Role in Treatment

Blood samples are used to test hormone levels. Based on the test results, the doctor can determine the initial HGH dosage a patient should receive. Patients must give themselves daily subcutaneous HGH injections, and the doctor will show the patient or the patient’s partner how to give these injections.

The patient must return to the doctor at least monthly for further blood testing to ensure hormone levels are correct for HGH treatment. Once the patient stabilizes at an appropriate level, visits can become less frequent.
