Human Growth Hormone
Replacement Therapy In Adults

Growth hormone is essential to growth. It is a supplement given to children who suffer with abnormally slow bone growth to enable them to grow taller. But HGH levels fall steadily in everyone once they reach adulthood. Since we now realize that HGH is indispensable throughout life, it must be considered a vital hormone for maintenance of the adult body. Studies of its amazing effects in the elderly population support its primary role in improved longevity and the betterment of the quality of one’s life.

HGH is produced in the anterior section of the pituitary gland deep in the brain, HGH is a microscopic protein substance. Chemically, it is somewhat similar to insulin although it is secreted in short pulses during the first hours of sleep and after exercise; it only remains in the circulation for a few minutes. As such, it is extremely difficult to measure HGH in blood serum. However the body binds most of the growth hormone in the liver and converts some into Somatomedin-C, another protein hormone also called Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). Normal Somatomedin-C blood levels in adults range from 200- 450 ng/ml. Yet, one-third of individuals over 50 years of age show abnormal level less than 200ng/ml.

When one’s Somatomedin-C level falls below the adult normal range, his/her muscle and bone strength and energy levels most likely will decrease. Tissue repair, cell regrowth, healing capacity, upkeep of vital organs, brain and memory function, enzyme production, and revitalization of hair, nails and skin will also diminish. While aging and decreasing growth hormone levels go ‘hand in hand’ those who lose their pituitary production of HGH due to surgery, infection or accident, instantly suffer many profound, ill effects.
