Produced by the pituitary gland, human growth hormone (HGH) plays a critical role in cell regeneration, tissue, bone, and heart maintenance, and muscle formation. Between the ages of 35 and 40, men begin to lose measurable amounts of HGH as part of the natural aging process. Deficiencies in human growth hormone cause symptoms including loss of libido, hair loss, memory and cognitive deficits, and fatigue and weakness. Depression, reduced immune system function, sleep difficulties, weight gain and osteoporosis often ensue as well. Diet, exercise, sleep and stress can also impact HGH production and HGH levels in men.
Growth hormone therapy monitored by a licensed physician and aging specialist can greatly improve quality of life for men with human growth hormone deficiency. After careful testing, treatment for low HGH can facilitate weight loss, improve mood and cognitive function, aid in restorative sleep and reduce erectile dysfunction. Improved cardiovascular health and an increase in muscle strength are often seen with treatment as well.
