Before starting HGH therapy, let’s find out more about this hormone.
What is HGH?
Human growth hormone is a hormone released by the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is a small gland below the brain. During childhood, it is produced in high amounts to make us grow taller.
During adulthood, our body still produces HGH, however, in small amounts. This hormone aims to maintain the health of our bones and organs. As we age, the amount of HGH naturally produced by our body decreases.
Can We Use HGH to Anti-Age?
There are some studies to show that as HGH production drops in older men, it may lead to increased body fat, decreased muscle mass, and decreased bone strength.
Some studies have shown that older men with severe HGH deficiencies will experience an increase in muscle mass, decrease body fat and increase bone density after receiving HGH injection treatments.
What are The Symptoms of HGH Deficiency?
The symptoms of HGH deficiency in adults can be very varied. Some people develop multiple symptoms, some only 1 or 2 symptoms.

How Do I Test for HGH Deficiency?
At the moment, there are no reliable tests that we can use to check look for HGH deficiency. One of the tests that doctors can use is IGF-1. If you suspect that you may have HGH deficiency, it is best to consult your doctor. You may need to also test other hormone levels like Testosterone which may be related to your symptoms.
