Growth hormone (HGH) levels typically begin to decline in women during their early 20s. It is often equated with the energy, lean bodies, heightened sexual interest, and vibrant skin of youth – which is why it has become de rigueur among Hollywood actresses.
Do You Have Growth Hormone Deficiency?
To be diagnosed with HGH deficiency, you must see a doctor who is experienced in integrative, anti-aging (or age management), and functional medicine. Blood tests in combination with a physical examination and patient history are required for a valid diagnosis of HGH deficiency.
The doctors of HGH Therapy have treated HGH deficiencies for over a decade and led the movement toward using hormone therapy to restore wellness and a positive quality of life. Women who come to HGH Therapy clinics around the nation report similar symptoms of low HGH:
- Weight gain, an increase in fat around the abdoman, difficulty losing weight despite
- Fatigue, loss of energy, lethargy, and “the blues”
- A loss of interest in sex, problems in their intimate relationships
- Loss of skin elasticity, loss of muscle tone, hair loss
- Memory problems, trouble concentrating or multi-tasking
In women, the symptoms of HGH deficiency are amplified by other hormone deficiencies, including low thyroid, and menopause-related hormone imbalances. It is more likely that you suffer from several hormone imbalances that contribute to an imbalanced endocrine system.
If you feel exhausted most of the time, have trouble sleeping, can’t lose weight, feel depressed and lethargic – growth hormone alone may not be to blame.
What Can You Expect From Growth Hormone?
Results of HGH therapy in women vary depending on age, activity levels, nutrition along with other hormone levels. Nonetheless, growth hormone has definite general health benefits. It has been called everything from “the fountain of youth” to the “sexy hormone.” Growth hormone therapy benefits usually begin to appear within a matter of weeks, and include:
- Increased fat loss, leaner body, improved muscle tone
- A decrease in wrinkles, improved skin texture and elasticity
- Improved energy and daily stamina
- Improved memory, cognitive ability and focus
- Increased bone density, reduced risk of osteoporosis
- Decreased risk of heart attack and diabetes
- Improved immune system and resistance to allergies
Why Should You Start Growth Hormone?
The benefits of growth hormone have not been studied as extensively in women as in men. However, women use growth hormone for many of the same reasons. They want to turn back the clock, they are sick and tired of being tired, they want to improve their energy and outlook upon life. Like men, women want to take control of their lives and challenge the decline in quality of life that occurs with age. Growth hormone therapy can be costly, so it should only be undertaken in the context of a comprehensive approach to hormone management. By balancing growth hormone in relationship to other hormones such as thyroid, cortisol and the “menopause hormones,” women can see dramatic improvements in both their appearance and feeling of wellbeing. Any woman over the age of 35 should consider being tested for hormone deficiencies and imbalances as the first step in improving her quality of life.
Take The Utian QofL Scale For Women
Quality of life (QoL) is a subjective measurement of how well you feel and function during normal, daily activities. The North American Menopause Society has developed the Utian Quality of Life (UQOL) Scale for clinical physicians to use to gain important information about menopause-related quality of life. Age deficiencies that impact QofL scores.
The Utian Quality of Life Scale must be scored by a professional. If you submit the completed questionnaire using the contact form below, we will score the test at no cost and return it to you with any pertinent comments.
