What Does HGH Deficiency in Adults Mean?

Unlike children, HGH deficiency in adults has nothing to do with height.

Human growth hormone is, however, more crucial for the adult body than most people realize.

When the pituitary gland begins to decrease the production of HGH in one’s early thirties, the decline is barely noticeable – but later on, after many years or even decades, the difference can have a dramatic impact on the body.

Adult HGH deficiency can lead to serious health issues if not diagnosed and corrected before it gets out of hand. Some of these medical concerns include:

  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoporosis
  • Osteopenia
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes

If you feel you may have a HGH deficiency, you may want to consult with a doctor who specializes in this area. An HGH prescription may be recommended.

How to Tell If I Have HGH Deficiency

If you have HGH deficiency, the signs will definitely be there, and they will be hard to miss.

Changes in energy, mood, and appearance are the most common signs that something is wrong.

Do I have HGH deficiency if I am tired all of the time and have no interest in sex?

Those are two of the leading indicators of Low T.

Each person will experience adult growth hormone deficiency in his or her unique way. The reason that HGH decline manifests itself differently in every man or woman is due to the vast functions in the body growth hormone impacts.

For example, HGH receptors can be found in the liver, the brain, muscles, internal organs, tissues, bones, and more. Some areas may receive more of a signal in one person where other areas may be affected more in another. That is why your HGH deficiency may look different than your friend’s.

This is how to determine HGH deficiency:
1.       Look over the list of symptoms in the first section – if you have at least three proceed to step 2 below
2.      Contact a hormone specialist for a consultation to discuss your symptoms and any medical issues you have
3.      Get a blood test – the hormone specialist will arrange this
4.      Have a physical examination to rule out any other health concerns
5.      Complete a medical history questionnaire
6.      Discuss the findings and any diagnosis and treatment plan during a follow-up consultation

What Can I Do If I Have HGH Deficiency?

We know that any medical diagnosis can be scary, but do not let HGH deficiency worry you – it is easily treated.

During the review of your completed medical file (after finishing the first five steps above), the hormone specialist will put together a treatment plan that will increase human growth hormone levels in your body. As more HGH circulates in your bloodstream, the symptoms you have will start to decline and disappear.

Instead of saying “I am tired because I have growth hormone deficiency” you will be telling everyone that your boost in energy, more youthful looks, weight loss, and increased vitality are all because you restored hormonal balance in your body.

Can growth hormone deficiency be cured without HGH injections?

Some people who catch this decline in the very early stages – at the start of their symptoms or better yet, before they begin – will be able to make certain lifestyle changes, such as:

  • Increase sleep to between 7 and 9 hours a night
  • Engage in high-intensity exercise
  • Reduce stress
  • Make dietary changes (intermittent fasting also helps)

Others may find that sermorelin therapy can boost HGH production in the pituitary gland.

Once multiple symptoms are present, most people require HGH therapy to help them put their bodies back in balance and get back on track so that the above-mentioned lifestyle changes can then assist them in the future.
