What Is An HGH Deficiency?
An HGH deficiency is a medical condition where the pituitary gland slows and the body is no longer producing enough growth hormone to allow it to function at optimal performance. Growth hormone is vital for energy, strength, vitality, vigor, strong bones and immunity and for keeping all systems of the body healthy.
There can be many reasons for a person to suffer with an adult HGH deficiency; probably the most common being aging. This means that everyone goes through losing their growth hormone. When people want to look more youthful and feel better physically and emotionally in a natural and safe way, they may partake in hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT has become increasingly popular, not just for Hollywood stars, but for everyone.
- When will a person begin to experience an HGH deficiency?
Experts say that both men and women can begin to experience a growth hormone deficiency disease by the age of 30. GH is plentiful in most people before the age of 30 and this is why their skin is tight, they have energy, stamina, strong bones and more. Sometime after this age, symptoms of a GH deficiency may start to occur.
- What is happening in the body that causes an HGH deficiency?
When the pituitary gland slows down and not enough growth hormone is being produced in the body, a GH deficiency can occur. The pituitary gland is what creates the production of growth hormone. This gland is located at the base of the brain. It sends signals out to the body when a person needs more growth hormone to be produced.
Since the body slows as a whole as people age, so does the pituitary gland. Therefore, the production of growth hormone will slow too. This will leave behind symptoms that can range from mild to extremely upsetting enough to wipe away all quality of life.
- Is there treatment for an HGH deficiency?
Yes. The most common, effective and safe treatment for an HGH deficiency is doctor prescribed and medically supervised hormone replacement therapy. More and more people are turning to this kind of therapy which delivers human growth hormone in the body via subcutaneous injections that have been prescribed by a licensed doctor. Full testing needs to take place first; however, in order for treatment to be legal, not to mention, safe.
