Growth Hormone Therapy
Growth Hormone (“GH”) deficiency in adulthood leads to a decrease in lean body mass, bone mineral density, and quality of life; an increase in fat mass; and increased rate of fractures, cardiovascular disease, and mortality.
BODY COMPOSITION –
Increased GH levels decrease subcutaneous fat mass by 13% and internal fat mass by 30%, and Increase Muscle Mass by 5% with 6 months of therapy.
EXERCISE CAPACITY AND STRENGTH –
Increased GH levels improves maximal power and maximal oxygen uptake of muscles for longer/stronger workouts.
HEALS CONNECTIVE TISSUE –
Increased GH levels heals chronically
inflamed joints reducing and in many
cases eliminating chronic and activity
limiting pain. It also Stabilizes injured
joints by strengthening peripheral
muscles to reduce wear and tear
on injured joints
IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE –
Increased GH levels are associated
with overall improved quality of life
in 11 out of 16 meta studies.
BONE DENSITY –
Increased GH levels have been
shown to increase bone mineral
density in multiple studies.
