Growth Hormone Therapy – Seattle & Bellevue
It is well known that growth hormone levels decline with age. In some men, these levels can be very low and this can happen at any age. There is a grey area where the testing for growth hormone deficiency is less than accurate.
Many of the symptoms of low growth hormone overlap with low testosterone levels. In my experience, these can often occur in the same patient simultaneously. Testosterone therapy can often help improve growth hormone levels and diet and exercise can be helpful as well.
Life Extension Foundation promotes amino acid therapies such as L-arginine and l-ornithine, which can be effective at modest increases in night time growth hormone production if taken before bed. We suggest you get your hgh levels checked to ensure whatever treatment you do is effective.
Some of the physical characteristics that suggest low growth hormone production is thinning of the eyebrows, deep wrinkles in the face, increased belly fat, and poor sleep (Peker et al., 2006).
Notice: We only prescribe recombinant HGH for patients who qualify the criteria established by the Endocrine Society as having Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency. Please read below to understand the Innovative Approach to HGH.
We understand the importance of maintaining healthy growth hormone levels. We have experience helping patients balance their hormones and we can help you get more from life. Citations
Low Growth Hormone (HGH) Symptoms
- Brain function decline - memory, focus, and concentration decline
- Heart atrophy – the heart is a muscle and becomes impaired
- Kidney function decline - decreased kidney function is a “normal” part of aging
- Immune dysfunction - getting sick more easily and poor healing and recovery
- Hair gets “old” looking - hair is thinner and graying occurs
- Cholesterol is “bad” – increased LDL cholesterol
- Loss of skin elasticity - the skin thins and sags with deep wrinkles
- Loss of energy and vigor - vitality, endurance and stamina reduce
- Bones lose strength - leading to osteoporosis.
- Erectile dysfunction - decreased ability to maintain erections
- Loss of libido - sexual desire declines
- Muscles lose strength - the body can no longer build muscle well
- Body fat accumulates - belly fat accumulates and tends towards obesity
Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency Is Worth Considering
In a recent study of 3,942 men, the risk of death by ANY cause was decreased in men with higher testosterone AND igf-1 levels. IGF-1 is one of the blood markers we use to evaluate growth hormone levels. So the higher your growth hormone and testosterone levels the longer you’ll live! (Steroids Journal, 2012)
The Innovative Approach to HGH and Growth Hormone Therapy
Due to federal regulations we are typically unable to prescribe recombinant human growth hormone. Luckily, there are other ways to optimize your growth hormone levels using lifestyle, dietary, nutritional, and, when necessary, medications that will stimulate your body to produce more growth hormone.
Based on your levels (igf-1 and/or urine hgh) and signs and symptoms, we will create a customized treatment program to meet your needs. This may involve additional lab testing (stimulation test), the use of medications that stimulate your body to produce more growth hormone, recombinant growth hormone therapy (for those with medical necessity), and other therapies to help you optimize your growth hormone levels.
It is now apparent that acquired GH deficiency is associated with significant changes in body composition, bone density, lipid metabolism, cardiovascular function and physical performance. In addition, new information is now available on the use of low doses of recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) to more safely reverse the sequelae of GH deficiency in adults. (MGH Harvard)
Keep in mind, growth hormone is only one of the many hormones that can decline with age or due to other health problems. Your Innovative physician will likely want to check other hormones to help you get maximum benefit from the therapy.
Compassionate Care From Licensed Physicians
We understand that every patient is different and that is why we offer more innovative approaches than any other clinic. While we can measure many hormones in blood and urine, we also listen to you and help you connect the dots. The Innovative Approach recognizes that hormones are only part of the picture.
The hormones activate receptors so what if the receptors are low? These are difficult to measure.
We have treatments that can help increase receptors so that better cell signalling occurs. In addition, we understand how different medicines interact with hormones. For example, many anti-depressants work at first but then lose efficacy. This is in part due to a downregulation of receptors but also a decreased production of oxytocin. By adding low doses of sublingual oxytocin to your program we can help you maintain a quality mood and prevent the “zombie” affect.
The Innovative Approach is all about getting more from life, reducing risks, and maximizing benefits. We work with you and for you. It just makes sense, right?
