Human Growth Hormone (HGH)The human body uses growth hormones to sustain growth in childhood and to maintain organs and tissues. These hormones are produced by the pituitary gland. As we age, the pituitary gland slows the production of growth hormone, which may cause some adults to experience growth hormone deficiency, leading to muscle loss, weak bones, and lack of energy. Children who experience a lack of growth hormone can also suffer from slow growth and small size. Human growth hormone treatments can help to balance your human growth hormone levels for a healthy and happy you.
What is Human Growth Hormone?Human growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pituitary gland. It is an important factor for growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration. This hormone builds and repairs healthy tissues in the organs, can help to speed up healing after an injury, and can boost metabolism and muscle mass, as well as burn fat. It works by kickstarting metabolic processes in the cells to stimulate the metabolism. This causes the liver to produce an insulin-like protein that creates cartilage cells, which work to repair and maintain organs and muscles.
Both adults and children who suffer from poor growth can benefit from human growth hormone treatments. Poor growth may be caused by a number of medical conditions that cause a deficiency in growth hormones.
Who Would Need Human Growth Hormone?Individuals who have medical conditions such as chronic kidney disease, Prader-Willi syndrome, Turner syndrome, or muscle wasting disease can often benefit from human growth hormone treatments. Many individuals experience decrease GH because of benign tumors of the pituitary gland. Greatest number of individuals with GH deficiency are those individuals where growth hormone deficiency is due to aging and/or failure of the Pituitary to make sufficient Growth Hormone Releasing Factor (GHRF). There are several ways to benefits from GH treatments contact us today to schedule your consultation.
