What is Human Growth Hormone Deficiency?

What is Human Growth Hormone Deficiency?

Since the 1950s, human growth hormone (HGH), a hormone that stimulates cell division and regeneration and is secreted by the pituitary gland in the brain, has been the subject of extensive research. HGH is essential for a child's healthy growth and development. Lack of human growth hormone in children causes short stature, delayed physical development, and other metabolic disorders like diabetes. Adults also require HGH to maintain many crucial physiological processes, such as healthy cardiovascular function, balanced levels of body fat, muscle, bone, and cognitive function.

Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD) is the term used to describe insufficient HGH production in adults. AGHD can lead to issues like an unhealthy body composition, high cholesterol, and a reduced ability to exercise.

Although human growth hormone cannot be directly measured, when it is secreted, it travels through the blood to the liver where it is changed into the protein IGF-1, which serves as its active form. A reliable indicator of how much HGH our body is secreting is IGF-1, which can be measured. Your local lab may view your results as "normal," but they might not be "optimal." When you are optimal, you feel and perform at your best. It's crucial to consult a doctor who specializes in age management and hormonal optimization so they can examine both your numbers and any symptoms concurrently to determine whether you have a deficiency in human growth hormone.
