Hormones are a factor in almost all of our body’s main functions, not just growth – though that’s the main one we think of, and is the main purpose of HGH (Human Growth Hormone). If your system doesn’t produce enough HGH, that can lead to serious health and quality-of-life problems, and growth hormone injections may be called for.
Hormones are produced by several glands in our bodies, and the pituitary gland is considered to be the “master” gland, in control of the others. It’s also the one that produces HGH.
The pituitary gland is located within the brain, right below the hypothalamus, and it secretes its hormones after receiving chemical signals from the hypothalamus.
HGH production influences our height and our size, signals our bodies to build muscle and bone, and a lack of it leads to poor or incomplete development in children. Even though adults have less of it than children, a lack of it can cause many undesirable symptoms, as our bodies won’t be able to maintain their structures properly.
Some children are born with genetic defects leading to low HGH production, and some adults sustain damage to the pituitary gland which causes the same results – too-low HGH production, which then leads to poor health.
What to Expect from Human Growth Hormone Therapy
Are you a candidate for the health-restoring benefits of HGH supplementation? What kind of results can you expect? What exactly will the HGH do to your body? And are there potential negative effects?
First, one basic fact: HGH supplementation can definitely improve the lives of both children and adults who have a Human Growth Hormone deficiency.
Without sufficient HGH, children will not grow as they should. And, for everyone including adults, insufficient HGH has negative impacts on muscle mass, on bone density, and even on mood.
HGH also has an effect on reproduction, sexual function, and basic metabolism.
One way that HGH produces these effects is by processing our dietary protein intake, and our fat intake, breaking down these substances from our food and turning them into energy that the body uses to build new tissue. New tissue is always needed, as all of our trillions of cells have a limited lifespan and many must be replaced every day.
HGH levels naturally vary, even within a single day. Physical activity – or lack of it – can play a big part in that.
Physical activity, especially vigorous exercise, makes HGH levels go up, as can sleep, stress, and low blood sugar. Even small changes can have noticeable effects.
HGH Deficiency in Children
Too little HGH in children can lead to unnaturally short stature or even dwarfism. If the condition is allowed to continue for too long, these conditions are irreversible.
Children with insufficient HGH usually show no symptoms at birth, but the condition becomes evident as time passes and the child fails to grow at least two inches per year and appears progressively smaller than his or her peers of the same age as time passes.
Other symptoms of HGH deficiency in children include impaired hair growth, and unusually “chubby” appearance, and delayed puberty.
Sometimes the condition can be traced to genetic inheritance; in other cases the cause is not known.
In adults, low HGH levels are often caused by damage to the pituitary gland. In cases where the damage is permanent, lifetime HGH supplementation may be necessary for optimal health.
Pituitary Tumors Can Cause HGH Imbalance
Low HGH levels can also be caused by pituitary tumors, head injuries, radiation therapy, and severe infections including meningitis.
Sometime, even treatment for a pituitary tumor, such as radiotherapy or surgery, can cause damage to the gland itself, reducing or stopping the body’s HGH production.
Low HGH in adults can cause a large number of health problems, which can occur singly or in combination depending on the individual. Some of these conditions include: anxiety; depression, cognitive decline (brain fog); weak heart; weak bones; muscle weakness; excessive and continuous fatigue; increased stroke risk; increased fatty deposits in the trunk or waist area.
Low HGH levels can also trigger deficiencies of other important hormones, leading to a domino effect of serious health impacts.
How to Effectively Treat Adult-Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency
Patients suffering from certain diseases have been shown to improve after HGH treatments: 1) chronic kidney disease; 2) Prader-Willi syndrome (a genetic disease resulting in feeding problems, weak muscles, insufficient growth, delayed childhood development; 3) Noonan’s syndrome (a genetic disorder interfering with bodily development); 4) Turner’s Syndrome (in which women fail to fully develop their female characteristics).
HGH injections are a common way to increase HGH levels. This can be done in a clinic, or, after proper instructions from one’s doctor, can even be done at home by the patient himself.
Only a doctor can determine how much HGH should be injected, as every patient’s deficiency and condition is unique. Injections can occur daily or several times a week. Getting too much can be devastating, so patients should always follow the plan developed by their physicians after testing, examinations, and re-testing.
In some cases, the treatments will go on for years – it all depends on your particular condition, the degree of deficiency, and how your body responds to the treatment. Patients should carefully follow all instructions, and see him or her every month or so to assess progress and adjust the dosage if necessary.
A Blood Test is Necessary to Determine Candidacy for Treatment and Dosage
Blood tests will be given, a decision made to increase or decrease the amount of HGH supplied as a supplement. For some patients, the body recovers fully and treatments are discontinued. As part of the examinations, blood sugar levels, bone density, and cholesterol levels will also be checked to insure they are in a healthy range. (HGH injections can affect insulin response, and too little HGH can give rise to overly brittle bones and high cholesterol. Your doctor needs to fine-tune the dosage to your body and your specific condition. Just reading about what someone else did on the Internet and duplicating it could be very harmful to your health!)
Your doctor will consider many factors when deciding on or adjusting your dose, like age; patient symptoms and self-evaluation; extent of harm or deficiency based on measurements; your overall health; your body’s tolerance of the supplement (very important!); and ongoing blood test results.
In the case of children, the earlier the diagnosis and treatment occurs, the more likely it is that they will grow up to normal adult height and be indistinguishable from others when they become adults.
In some cases, children undergoing HGH supplementation have experienced dramatic and satisfactory growth after just a few years of treatment.
For some adults, HGH supplementation has to continue for a lifetime.
Many adults have to take HGH treatment for the remainder of their life.
The goal of the injections is to restore proper levels of energy, proper development, reduce excessive body fat (especially belly fat), secure a healthy metabolism, improve toleration of exercise or other exertion, improve muscle strength, and improve sexual function for those who are low in HGH.
The goal of growth hormone treatments in adults and children is to restore energy, metabolism, and enhance body development or shape. It can help to reduce total body fat, especially around the belly.
It’s often successful in those goals, with most patients happy and enthusiastic about their improved quality of life.
