5 Signs You May Have Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD)

5 signs you may have GHD

GHD, or growth hormone deficiency is a clinically proven condition that can result in a variety of effects on men and women. This condition can affect people of any age, but is most commonly found in those over the age of 35. Apart from helping the body mature and grow to its adult height, growth hormone is also very important in the energy metabolism as well as skin maintenance in the body. HGH does this because it stimulates and regulates the renewal of and optimization of cells throughout the body.

All of the symptoms this condition presents are a result of a lack of HGH and how it throws off other hormonal activities and maintenance procedures.

If you have ever experienced symptoms such as ther following, you may be found to have a need for HGH therapy:

1. Weight Gain Due To Slow Metabolism

The research behind HGH and its role in the metabolism of proteins and fats has been well established. IGF-1 is an important precursor to HGH and these two chemicals rely on each other to allow for the proper breaking down and utilization of proteins and lipids throughout the body. HGH indirectly performs its effects on the metabolism through IGF-1’s action of increasing protein uptake in the muscles, and directly by increasing anabolic protein breakdown.

2. Loss of muscle and bone density

Similarly to the first sign on the list, HGH also directly affects the calcium metabolism in the body, as well as the activity of osteoclasts and other bone density-altering cells. The mechanism of HGH in combination with IGF-1 is critical in maintaining a correct usage of calcium in the body. If you have low levels of either of these, or even low testosterone levels, HGH has been shown to have a decreased ability to stimulate bone growth and maintenance procedures through the action of calcium uptake in the bone and cartilage. Calcium helps provide the bone with the nutrients necessary for strength and resilience, and without it, will begin to deteriorate and become more prone to injury and pain.

3. Sexual issues

Specifically, testosterone is very closely tied with many of the actions of HGH and this is why they have such similar effects on the body. If you have been experiencing sexual dysfunctions, along with other symptoms of HGH deficiency, your low HGH levels may be affecting the ability for testosterone to stimulate the increased blood flow needed to trigger strong and efficient erections.

HGH gas effects that include calcium retention, strengthening your bones by improving mineralization, and it can also help people increase their overall muscle mass exponentially, one of the reasons that so many athletes take this hormone in order to build muscle without having to use steroids. Moreover, it can help strengthen the immune system. All of this together can help to increase your overall energy levels due to the fact that by increasing muscle and nerve activity, your body will have an increased energy output.

5. Sagging Skin
