The older a person gets, the lower the level of certain hormones in the body.
One of them – somatotropin – can lead to a condition called human growth hormone deficiency in adults. When this occurs, an individual can discover widespread breakdown in the body.
These changes can create havoc with a person’s cognitive abilities, immune system functions, metabolism, libido, muscle and bone structure, heart health, and much more.
Unlike the effects of menopause that typically subside after a few years, HGH deficiency continues to worsen as time passes. If the body does not adjust on its own to a decrease in growth hormone production, the effects can be devastating.
Left undiagnosed and untreated, low HGH levels can lead to osteoporosis, heart disease, dementia, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other serious health concerns.
In this report, we will examine the various symptoms that can alert you to low human growth hormone levels, as well as what you can do about it and the results to expect.
Signs of Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
Many different signs of human growth hormone deficiency exist in men and women. Some of these symptoms overlap with other hormonal imbalances and health conditions. It is virtually impossible to self-diagnose HGH decline.
A doctor specializing in hormone replacement therapy will run blood tests to determine this condition if some of the symptoms listed below are present.
To determine if there is a case of HGH deficiency, adults should examine the following list and check off what they are experiencing:
- Low endurance
- Poor sleep
- Weight gain
- Sluggish metabolism
- Frequent colds or viruses
- Long healing time from illness or injury
- Joint pains
- Bodily stiffness and loss of flexibility
- Decreased bone density
- Loss of lean muscle mass
- Hair loss, thinning, and graying
- Brittle nails
- Increased wrinkles
- Sagging and thin skin
- Age spots
- Declining eyesight, especially night vision
- High LDL cholesterol levels
- Sensitivity to changes in temperature
- Mental fatigue
- Trouble concentrating
- Memory loss
- Difficulty learning new things
- Reduced cognitive performance
- Decreased drive and motivation
- Lack of productivity
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction in men
- Vaginal dryness in women
- Decreased sexual pleasure
- Mood swings
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Increased stress
- Poor internal organ functions
It is not expected that each person will have every symptom on the list, but if at least a few of them are present, it is time to speak with an HRT specialist about testing for low growth hormone levels.
Benefits of Treatment for Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
It is easy to see how people can get depressed if they have human growth hormone deficiency. Not only do they look older than their chronological age, but they feel it, as well.
Creaky joints, weight gain, hair loss, and sagging skin do nothing for a person’s self-image or ego.
Memory loss can add fear, and frequent illness and lack of energy can make it hard to leave the house, adding to the social isolation that some people feel.
This does not have to be the case.
It is easy to test for and treat HGH deficiency in adults. Hormone specialists run detailed blood tests that check a variety of different blood levels to assess the situation fully. Not only do they want to get a precise diagnosis, but they also want to rule out more severe health issues.
Once diagnosed with low HGH levels, the following benefits of human growth hormone treatment are seen:
- Increased energy, endurance, and vitality
- Loss of excess weight without exercise or diet
- Improved lean muscle tone and strength
- Stronger bones
- Fuller, thicker hair
- Firmer, tighter skin
- Stronger nails
- Improved focus, memory, and brain functions
- Increased motivation, drive, performance, and productivity
- Better sex
- Deeper, more restful sleep
- Brighter mood and outlook
- Reduced stress
- Sharper eyesight
- Reversal of menopause symptoms
- Enhanced immune system functions
- Shorter recuperation times
- Improved internal organ support
- Increased cardiac output and capacity
