If you are a man, woman, or child feeling the impact of low levels of growth hormone, growth hormone therapy can have many positive benefits.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a vital hormone produced by the pituitary gland. HGH in turn stimulates the release of something known as insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1). HGH and IGF-1 are intimately related as they both stimulate growth and help to regulate fat metabolism.
As HGH is released from the pituitary gland it travels through the blood stream. Once it reaches the liver, it stimulates the release of IGF-1. Other areas of the body are also stimulated by growth hormone to release IGF-1. HGH, through the release of IGF, plays a vital role in the regulation of all cellular growth, and therefore on the health and long term functionality of nearly every organ and system process in the body.
IGF-1 is part of an intricate chemical signaling system that basically regulates cellular growth and lifespan. How long your cells can remain healthy and divide before they eventually die off, is largely regulated by IGF-1. As IGF-1 levels drop, cells die quicker than they can be replaced. This is basically the aging process.
As you might imagine, when you are a child and most of your bodily processes are dedicated to growing to maturity, your levels of HGH and IGF are at their highest.
When HGH levels drop due to disease states, or the normal decline as you age, IGF-1 production also drops, and you will begin to notice the symptoms of growth hormone deficiency.
Growth hormone therapy is used to raise the levels of growth hormone in the blood. When this is done, via growth hormone injections, the synthetic growth hormone has the same positive effects on the release of IGF-1 as does the HGH normally produced by your body.
There Are Many Positive Benefits of Growth Hormone Therapy
Growth hormone therapy is used to treat children and adults who are suffering from growth hormone deficiency (GHD). HGH replacement therapy in children, is basically used so that children with GHD can grow into healthy adults of normal stature.
For adults suffering the many symptoms of adult onset GHD, or “age-related growth hormone deficiency,” the before and after results of growth hormone therapy can be amazing.
You could expect these results from HGH therapy:
Increased energy and stamina
Increased ability to build and maintain lean muscle
Improved sex drive and sexual performance
In addition, HGH therapy has had other positive effects on the overall health of adults receiving treatment such as:
Lowering blood pressure
Aiding in weight loss
Improved vison and eye health
Yet, what most people want to know is, how soon will they see these kinds of results from growth hormone replacement? Growth hormone replacement is a process. You will not see any kind of miraculous “overnight results,” however, over the course of your therapy, you will experience many life changing results.
Growth Hormone Therapy Results By Month
Most people will begin to see the results of growth hormone therapy within the first four weeks of treatment. Most initial growth hormone therapy is prescribed for six months. Here is a month-by-month breakdown, of the kinds of results you can expect from growth hormone replacement, over the first six months of your treatments.
Your Growth Hormone Therapy Results After One Month
While we indicated earlier that you may not experience any “overnight results” from your first injection of growth hormone therapy, the truth is, as soon as that new “jolt” of HGH enters your blood stream, your body reacts and begins to change in a positive way. As you continue your daily growth hormone injections, growth hormone levels increase, the production and release of IGF increases, and in about two weeks, you will begin to notice a difference. You will say that you are sleeping better, you will see increases in your energy level, and overall vitality. As you reach the end of your first month of growth hormone therapy, you will feel like a much different person. You will feel stronger, you will start to look better as skin health improves and muscles begin to tighten, and many patients even say, after one month, their “mental fog,” begins to lift, they can focus and concentrate better, and they experience fewer mood swings, and feelings of negativity.
Your Growth Hormone Therapy Results After Two Months
As you enter your second month of growth hormone therapy, now as you look in the mirror, your physical results will become much more apparent.
Now your skin will have a definitive more youthful “glow.” You will notice a definite improvement in muscle tone. You will be able to exercise for longer periods of a time, which will only further improve your “before” and “after” results. Belly fat should start to diminish. You may even notice an improvement in your eyesight, particularly your night vision.
Your Growth Hormone Therapy Results After Three months
Once you have been on growth hormone therapy for three months, now you will start to see some of the most significant changes in your body from when you first started. At 12 weeks out, you will look and feel physically much stronger. Bone density will have significantly improved, to the point where you are more flexible, and are experiencing less joint stiffness or joint pain. You will probably even see an improvement in your sex life!
Your Growth Hormone Therapy Results After Four Months
As you come out of your third month of growth hormone therapy, and enter your fourth, this is when you experience your peak results. Fat loss will be significant, as will be you improvement in lean muscle. You will look and feel more “fit.” You will experience most of not all of the known benefits of HGH replacement such as:
Healthy skin and hair
Less disrupted sleep
Lower cholesterol and increased heart health
Your Growth Hormone Therapy Results After Five Months
As you reach the fifth month of growth hormone therapy, this is the time we usually take the “before” and “after,” results pictures of our patients. Do not be surprised when you look at them if you do not even recognize the overweight, out of shape person you used to be!
