All About Low HGH

All About Low HGH

If you are living with low levels of Human Growth Hormone, you may feel lethargic, weak and defeated. This hormone, which is required for children to mature into adults, naturally decreases with age. However, low HGH levels in adults can contribute to a variety of physical and psychological symptoms that impact your overall health. Along with testosterone, HGH is the main hormone which is impacted by andropause.

Why Is HGH Important?
Human Growth Hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland and controls our physical maturation. It is often called the “healing hormone” because, in addition to regulating normal human growth, HGH also helps our bodies heal instead of deteriorate.

In adults, HGH helps to regulate body fat, muscle tone, and bone density. Low HGH levels in adults can cause symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, and depression. Any or all of these may manifest through the course of andropause.

What Is Andropause?
Andropause describes the series of changes which happen hormonally as men age, similar to what women experience through menopause. Unlike women, however, men begin andropause soon into adulthood, often in their mid-20s to early 30s. The progression of andropause is also more gradual than menopause, but this can make the symptoms even more difficult to diagnose. Andropause affects many hormones in the body, and can result in Low HGH, Low T symptoms, and imbalanced thyroid hormone levels.

Is It Low HGH?
There are several symptoms which are typically seen in men who are suffering from low HGH levels:

  • Reduced libido and sexual desire
  • Weight gain, especially around the midsection
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Muscle weakness
  • Thin, dry skin
  • Sleep problems such as insomnia
  • Depression, anxiety, and social withdrawal

As with Low T, symptoms of low HGH are often subtle and easily missed. However, they may increase in severity over time if left untreated.
