Human growth hormone (HGH), which is produced naturally in the pituitary gland, is vital to growth, weight regulation and the maintenance of healthy tissue in the brain and other organs. An adequate level of HGH is essential for bone growth in children and adolescents; the body’s level of HGH begins to drop off when a woman is in her 20s.
HGH deficiency is associated with a number of symptoms. Because these symptoms are similar to those of perimenopause and menopause, hormone testing is essential to determine the cause of your discomfort as well as the appropriate treatment. Signs of HGH deficiency in women include:
- Weight gain
- Decreased sex drive
- Disturbed sleep and fatigue
- Cognitive or memory issues
- Dry skin
- Hair loss
- Decreased muscle strength
Benefits of HGH Therapy for Women
If testing reveals that your symptoms are indeed caused by an HGH deficiency, you will be treated with an appropriate dosage of human growth hormone. Once treatment begins, your HGH level returns to normal, and you experience the benefits of the hormone’s anti-aging and weight-loss properties. Your symptoms decrease, skin becomes more elastic, sleep patterns improve, your libido increases and your risk of osteoporosis declines.
In addition to providing HGH injections to get your body back to its peak performance level, the professionals at Progressive Health and Rejuvenation can create a personalized comprehensive health plan to improve your overall health. Combining hormone replacement therapy with recommendations for exercise, nutrition and lifestyle changes will have you looking and feeling your very best.
