Living with hormone deficiencies can have a number of unwanted effects on your health, your energy, and your livelihood. HGH therapy can help individuals battling with hormone deficiencies. Those who develop a hormone deficiency in adulthood likely have a pituitary gland that is not producing a sufficient amount of the growth hormone. Hormone replacement can supplement what the pituitary gland is not doing.
Your anterior pituitary gland is where the growth hormone is produced. HGH is what encourages your body to create insulin. Insulin is produced primarily by your liver. Throughout your life, these two hormones work together to control the metabolic system.
However, in some adults, this symbiotic relationship between HGH and insulin gets out of whack. They start producing less and less human growth hormone, and the effects that it can have on their life are devastating. Thankfully, HGH therapy exists.
Many individuals who develop a human growth hormone deficiency as an adult have in some way or another damaged their pituitary gland. For some people, the damage came as a result of a pituitary tumor. Either the tumor itself is inhibiting the gland’s ability to produce the needed hormone or the chemotherapy and surgery to correct the tumor has destroyed the pituitary gland. The same is true of individuals who are battling with certain types of autoimmune disorders, who are battling with leukemia, or who have had trauma that directly affected the pituitary gland.
Some people, such as those who are dealing with Turner syndrome, may have a deficiency in human growth hormones as a result of genetic or congenital defects. In the majority of these individuals, the human growth hormone abnormality is identified as they are children, but the effect of not having a sufficient amount of this hormone will be with them for the rest of their lives.
HGH therapy can help these individuals get their life back on track. It can help them regain their energy, improve their ability to gain muscle, and give them the focus they need to live a normal life.
