What is Growth Hormone Therapy and What You need to Know About Using Hormones

Did you know that one of the smallest organs in the human body is responsible for the production and distribution of all our growth hormone? It's true!

But if this process is interrupted due to any number of illnesses or issues, your body will suffer. Thankfully, growth hormone injections can help restore balance and get your body back on track.

Are you curious to learn more? Keep reading to learn how growth hormone therapy can help you or a loved one, if there are any side effects, and where to find the best HGH injections. Let's get started!

What Is Growth Hormone Therapy?

The pituitary gland, a tiny, pea-sized organ located at the base of the brain, is responsible for all the growth hormone in our bodies. It also encourages other glands to produce hormones.

In children, growth hormone promotes full-body development. In adults, growth hormone helps to regulate metabolism and body structure. The pituitary gland releases growth hormone in bursts every three to five hours.

Growth hormone therapy is a way of supplementing a person's natural supply. The hormone is always administered by injection to optimize absorption.

Who Can Benefit from Growth Injections?

Many people can benefit from prescribed growth hormone injections. Here are some examples.

  • Anyone with genetic disorders that affect growth and development.

  • People who have either had small intestine removal, or syndromes that prevent nutrient absorption in the small intestine.

  • Anyone who has insufficient growth hormone levels.

  • Those suffering from AIDS/HIV or any other muscle-wasting disorder or disease.

  • People who have pituitary tumors which prevent growth hormone production and/or distribution.

Growth Hormone Therapy Side Effects

Before you begin any medical therapy, you should be aware of the possible side effects. So, is hormone therapy safe?

The short answer is: yes. HGH has no proven side effects when administered properly. As long as you're under the strict supervision of a doctor and receive the correct dosage, HGH is both safe and side-effect free.

Where to Find the Best HGH

If you or a loved one are a good candidate for growth hormone injections, you'll need to find a trusted medical center to help you through the process. Here's what to look for.

  • Find a center with a great reputation. Look for positive testimonials from previous clients.

  • Ask for a consultation with a medical professional before deciding on where to go for your hormone therapy.

  • Search the web to find medical centers near you that offer hormone therapy. But keep in mind that you may need to travel a bit to go to the best facility.
