HGH Deficiency Testing

HGH: Human Growth Hormone

It is a biological fact that over the age of 40, the body’s production of human growth hormone (HGH), produced naturally by the pituitary gland to fuel growth during childhood, begins to decline. HGH is a catalyst for glandular secretions that keep organs and tissue healthy throughout life, but anti-aging physicians have long suspected that its waning over the age of 40 is significant to the aging process.

When that regression reaches a point in which one experiences some or all of the following symptoms, one should be tested for Adult HGH Deficiency Syndrome (GHD).

  • The onset of osteoporosis
  • Mental confusion
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Weakened immunity system

Declining HGH levels are even more prominent but less gradual when a patient has suffered from minor or traumatic brain injury, experienced exposure to radiation, or had surgery on the pituitary gland. If you have experienced any of these exceptions, let Dr. Charles Lee know in advance.

HGH Replacement Therapy improves all of these symptoms, plus increases muscle mass and bone density; decreases body fat; improves mood and restores the capacity for exercise.

You will require a GHD test to see if you qualify for HGH Replacement Therapy. In some cases, other tests may also be required such as a test for pituitary hormonal levels and even a brain scan, to rule out other pathology.
