Signs in Children and Adults of HGH Deficiency

HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is a testosterone builder. It is produced naturally within the body. It plays a vital role in cell regeneration, maintenance of healthy tissues including all vital organs, brain included.

When we are young our pituitary gland gives us a wealth of HGH. As we age, that level declines.

While only a blood test can truly reveal if your levels are off, there are some give away symptoms and signs you can look for that will signal the possibility that you could benefit from supplementation.

As an adult, if you are lacking HGH in your system you may experience the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Decrease in strength
  • A decrease in muscle mass
  • Brain Fog
    Memory issues
  • Dry skin
  • High Triglycerides
  • Fatigue
  • Elevated cardiovascular disease risk
  • Higher LDL cholesterol
  • Be more sensitive to hot and cold
  • A gain of weight around the waist
  • Insulin resistance
  • Bone density drop – increased risk for osteoporosis
  • Sexual dysfunction

Surprisingly, a low HGH level also may occur in children. It is important to keep on the lookout for these signs:

  • Your child is smaller than most other kids his or her age
  • They are slow to develop teeth
  • Hair growth is slow
  • Their forehead is more prominent than most
  • They look younger than other kids
  • Growth is less than 2 inches per year
  • Increased fat around the stomach and face
  • Underdeveloped nose bridge
  • Delayed puberty or not advancing to it at all

In either case, your physician may recommend HGH hormone replacement therapy. Normalizing your levels will help your body develop properly as a child into adulthood and as adults, it will support proper health giving you benefits including:

  • Enhanced weight loss
  • Stronger bones
  • Correction of ED
  • Decrease in obesity
  • Better mood
  • Better cognitive function
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced heart disease risk
  • Faster bone healing
  • Increase in muscle mass
