When it comes to growth hormone deficiencies, medical professionals do not like to use the word cured. However, like other hormonal conditions such as diabetes, growth hormone deficiency can be well-managed.
You know that diabetes is managed through the use of a prescription for insulin shots. Those shots mimic the role of the insulin naturally produced by the body. The same is true for those suffering from growth hormone deficiency or GHD. We can manage GHD with a prescription for growth hormone injection therapy.
How Is Growth Hormone Deficiency Treated?
As we have said, growth hormone therapy may not be cured, but it certainly can be treated. The safest and most effective treatment for growth hormone deficiency, is growth hormone replacement therapy.
Growth hormone therapy works by providing a way to make up for what time and nature take away.
Growth hormone therapy works by making up for the drop in HGH production as you age. By keeping your HGH at more youthful levels, growth hormone therapy leads to:
Decreased body fat
Increased lean muscles
Improved memory and cognitive function
More productive workouts and quicker recovery after exercise
Growth hormone therapy works, not because you are pumping someone up to superhuman levels beyond what is normal, but simply because you are returning him or her to his or her particular peak level, before HGH started to decline.
Does Growth Hormone Therapy Cure Growth Hormone Deficiency?
Like any therapy or medical procedure, the results you can expect from growth hormone therapy do vary from person to person. This is yet another reason why we do not like to speak of “cures” for growth hormone deficiencies.
However, generally speaking, growth hormone therapy works for just about anyone who was found to have a growth hormone deficiency. Since growth hormone therapy is designed to be individualized, and return you to your particular peak performance level, naturally it will work differently for each person taking growth hormone.
In other words, if you were basically a healthy, active person, who enjoyed moderate physical activity in your 20s, taking growth hormone in your 50s, will not turn you into an Ironman Triathlete, but, it will probably allow you to get back into doing the things you loved to do when you were younger. There are many benefits of growth hormone replacement therapy. Some of the many benefits of growth hormone injections include:
Improved sexual function
Improved memory and cognition
Increased ability to burn fat and build muscle
Healthier skin and bones
What Happens When I Stop Taking Growth Hormone Injections?
While it may not be technically accurate to say that HGH therapy is a cure for growth hormone deficiency, that does not mean that you should not expect long lasting results. It also does not mean that once you start growth hormone therapy, you will have to stay on it for the rest of your life.
As we have pointed out above, since growth hormone therapy is prescribed for your unique needs and lifestyle, benefits will vary. Most people receive the full benefits of HGH replacement therapy within about six months.
Once you have been on HGH replacement therapy for three months or more, you will start seeing some drastic improvements in your body, and your physical fitness. Your belly fat will drop, your muscles will grow and tighten, and you will feel more agile in both mind and body.
After you have completed six months of growth hormone therapy, in most people, your body will have undergone almost a complete transformation. You will be stronger. You will be leaner. You will be able to accomplish physical and mental tasks, more like you could when you were younger. Your overall stamina and vitality will improve, as will your outlook on life. These effects, when augmented by a program of diet, fitness and exercise, should last long after you have competed your growth hormone therapy.
The key is — you will be in control. How long your positive effects of growth hormone therapy last, will be in your own hands. Many people will use the increased energy and strength they have received from growth hormone therapy, to become more active and to exercise more. For such people, keeping up with the improvements made by HGH therapy, will certainly last. Others may choose to continue the strides they have made by continuing on a low dose or with intermittent growth hormone injections. Still, there may be others, that despite being given the gift of a “new you” from growth hormone therapy, who will allow themselves to slip back into old habits, which can destroy their results.
How well growth hormone works, is largely up to you!
Does Growth Hormone Therapy Work the Same on Everybody?
Growth hormone therapy works by having it tailored to your individual needs. Growth hormone therapy works for everybody, but that does not mean it works the same way on every body! Growth hormone therapy works best when it is tailored to the unique HGH needs of your body.
How Do I Get the Best Growth Hormone Treatment?
Growth hormone therapy does work. Everybody can achieve some level of positive results from growth hormone therapy. However, not all doctors who provide growth hormone therapy are alike.
As we have been saying, each person, man or woman, seeking growth hormone therapy, is different. If you want your growth hormone therapy to work, you want to work with a practitioner who truly understands this, and will tailor your growth hormone therapy to your unique symptoms, goals, and lifestyle.
Beyond that, you want to work with someone who is experienced, and has a proven track record in understanding the unique needs of patients with adult onset, or age-related growth hormone deficiency. When seeking a doctor to provide you with growth hormone therapy, ask questions. You’ll want to know:
How long have you been providing growth hormone therapy?
Do you have patient reviews or testimonials I can see?
Do you guarantee results?
What kind of hormones do you use?
What other age-management services do you provide in addition to growth hormone therapy?
