Human Growth Hormone
Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is an important hormone made by your pituitary gland. Growth hormone is what allows us to grow from childhood into adults.
As you might imagine, HGH levels are much higher when you are a child, and they get lower the older you get. Once you are “fully grown” your HGH levels have dropped significantly.
You may think, “Well, why should that matter, if I am fully grown, what do I need “growth” hormone for?” Just because you are an adult, that does not mean you no longer need growth hormone. In fact, growth hormone continues to play a vital role in adulthood. HGH is required so you cells can still “grow,” not in terms of growing taller, but so that you can grow muscle, and healthy bones, and keep all of your tissues young, strong and vital.
The lack of vitality you feel as you reach middle age, may not be just “getting older” you may have less than optimal HGH levels. When you have low HGH, you may even look and feel “older” then your actual age!
Growth Hormone Therapy
Actual growth hormone therapy is only available with a doctor’s prescription, and it can only be given in daily self-injections. Any product that claims to be HGH, or one that you can get without a prescription, or if it is available in any other form then an injection – is not HGH.
Both HealthGAINS and Cenegenics ® provide prescription HGH injections. Both facilities understand the value of HGH to help qualified patients. But that is where the similarities between our HGH doctors and Cenegenics doctors end.
Cenegenics HGH Therapy
Cenegenics HGH injections are much more expensive than HealthGAINS. In fact Cenegenics entire hormone optimization program is more expensive than HealthGAINS.
We also like to think that we take a much more holistic and individual approach to HGH injections, and to all of our hormone replacement programs, than does Cenegenics, or any facility offering hormone replacement.
How Can HGH Injections Help Me?
The older you get the less growth hormone your body makes. Once you are in your 20s, you can expect a drop in growth hormone of from 2% to 4% every year.
If your doctor finds that you are growth hormone deficient, HGH injections can help you:
- Boost your strength and stamina
- Strengthen your bones, prevent osteoporosis and increase bone density
- Build more muscle mass
- Decrease body fat and lose weight
- Increase testosterone production
- Improve sleep
Who Should Have HGH Injection Therapy?
Anyone who is over 35 and is experiencing fatigue, weight gain, and sexual wellness issues should consider being tested for their HGH level.
Real HGH can only be prescribed by a doctor. Real HGH is only effective in the form of injections. Any product or service you see advertised as “HGH” or “HGH Therapy,” is not HGH if it is in any form other than an injection. The same is true if it is available without a prescription.
That is why if you think you may need HGH therapy, you only see a qualified doctor who is skilled and experienced in the proper administration of HGH and other forms of hormone replacement. This way you will not only know that you are getting real HGH should you need it, but you will also be working with a doctor who may combine HGH with other therapies.
For example, in our practices in Aventura and Miami Beach, when someone comes in asking about HGH, once he is evaluated, and labs are completed, we often find he has low testosterone as well. Low HGH and Low-T are interrelated, and patients usually benefit from combined therapies that can bring all of their hormones back into proper balance.
