Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy

Growth Hormone or HGH how it is commonly known, is one of the most important regulatory hormones produced in the human body. Produced in the anterior pituitary gland via stimulation from Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone, which is produced in the Hypothalamus, HGH plays a major role in multiple metabolic processes including carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism as well as indirect effect on the growth of cartilage, muscle and bone via its stimulation on the liver to produce IGF-1 which stimulates amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in muscle and other tissues like bone and cartilage leading to subsequent tissue growth. Additionally, HGH has been known to have effect on the Central Nervous System and skin.

What is Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD)?

Like most hormones naturally produced in the human body, HGH production begins to decline during early adulthood. Although there are well known external factors that can influence HGH levels such as poor sleep, stress, poor diet and lack of exercise or physical activity, it is understood that most adults will produce 50% less HGH by their mid 30’s and early 40’s

Common symptoms of Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency include: 

  • Decreased muscle mass

  • Decreased bone density

  • Impaired cardiac function

  • Decreased insulin sensitivity

  • Decrease is skin elasticity

  • Fatigue

  • Increase fat deposits

  • Poor memory

You wake up one day and suddenly realized that your youth is behind you, even though your still young at heart

Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy:

The cost of treatment for AGHD used to be prohibitive due to the high cost of recombinant Growth Hormone. Today, the cost of treatment is only about 10% of what it was in the early 2000’s due to the development of other treatment option like Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH).

Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) like the name suggest, acts directly on the pituitary gland to signal release and increase circulating HGH levels with studies showing a 2-10 fold increase.

Unlike treatment with HGH, therapy with GHRH and GHRP does not cause supra-physiologic levels of circulating Growth Hormone and IGF-1 levels requiring less frequent monitoring and having a decreased risk of adverse side effects.
