What to Know About Human Growth Hormone
Human growth hormone — sometimes known as somatotropin or somatropin — is a 191 amino acid hormone that is synthesized and released by the pituitary gland, with secretion regulated by the hypothalamus region of your brain.
Growth hormone is responsible for prompting growth in kids, but it is also very important in adults. While not all functions of HGH are completely understood, it is known that this hormone helps stimulate cell reproduction and regeneration, bone and muscle growth, and sugar and fat metabolism.
Growth hormone deficiency can be the result of many conditions like Turner’s syndrome or chronic kidney insufficiency. It can also occur from aging or unknown problems. HGH deficiency is most common in children, who typically suffer from short stature, growth failure and delayed sexual maturity. While less common in adults, low growth hormone levels usually lead to low energy, excess fat, reduced muscle and a reduced quality of life.
HGH injections are the standard of treatment for low growth hormone in children and adults. When it is supervised by a hormone doctor at the right dose, HGH therapy is very safe and effective at treating symptoms and restoring well-being. There are many types of recombinant HGH injections on the market today, such as Nutropin, Humatrope, Genotropin, Saizen and Norditropin.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement
There are several advantages to beginning bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Seattle, if blood work confirms you have low hormone levels. We all experience declining hormones as we age, or due to health conditions. These declines usually occur following puberty and again during menopause and andropause.
As hormone levels drop, you can experience any number of symptoms, from sexual dysfunction and low libido to muscle loss, depression, weight gain and irritability. The Seattle hormone specialists at Healthgains will help you understand which hormones your body is producing in low quantities, then develop a tailored hormone replacement plan to help you:
- Improve your mental sharpness and mood
- Enjoy a healthy libido and sex life by also treating erectile dysfunction and vaginal dryness
- Boost your metabolism to more efficiently burn fat and fight weight gain
- Support healthy heart function
- Maintain and build lean muscle
Seattle Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men and Women
Men and women can both benefit from HGH injections to restore vitality and treat HGH deficiency. You may also benefit from other types of HRT that are customized to your needs based on comprehensive lab work.
Men experience declining testosterone levels soon after puberty. This decline begins to accelerate at the age of 30, at which point testosterone levels fall at a rate of 1% a year. When testosterone drops too low, you may experience several symptoms of low T, including erectile dysfunction, low libido, mood problems, depression, memory problems, lost muscle mass and fat gain. Testosterone therapy is available in many forms, such as injections, patches and pills, and it is a reliable and effective treatment for low testosterone to restore your vitality and maintain fitness levels.
Hormone therapy is especially beneficial to treat menopause symptoms in women. Menopause can be relatively easy for some women, but others have symptoms that can be severe or interfere with daily life. Unfortunately, many symptoms even last more than 12 years in some women, according to new research.
For women, HRT for menopause is customized to your goals and hormone levels. It can involve estrogen alone, progesterone alone, or a combination of both in many forms, including a patch, pills, injections or a cream. Hormone therapy may be used as a cream to treat vaginal symptoms like painful intercourse and vaginal dryness while limiting the amount of hormone that enters your blood stream. If you want to treat night sweats and hot flashes as well, systemic hormone replacement is the best course of action.
Post-menopausal women who have not taken hormone replacement are at a much higher risk of osteoporosis, as reduced estrogen levels limit the body’s ability to use calcium to build and maintain bone mass.
If you are considering hormone therapy to treat the symptoms of low hormones, you probably have questions before you actually decide to get Human Growth Hormone therapy in Seattle. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions.
Are there growth hormone side effects I may experience?
There are uncommon side effects of HGH treatment, including a greater risk of diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome and joint pain and swelling. You may reduce these risks by working with a specialist who carefully monitors your hormone levels.
Can I choose from different types of HGH supplements?
Yes, although Healthgains recommends HGH injections, the most reliable and effective means of treating low growth hormone levels. Growth hormone is also available as a spray or pill, although these options are less effective.
Will HGH treatment improve libido and sexual performance?
HGH treatments can improve libido and sexual function if you have HGH deficiency. Some men may also benefit from testosterone therapy to treat erectile dysfunction.
