Is male HGH therapy safe?

Ever since the discovery of human growth hormone (HGH) in the 1920s, scientists have been fascinated with its effects. Although there is still quite a bit we don’t know about HGH, what we do know is that it stimulates growth and supports cellular regeneration in humans and other animals – virtually turning the biological clock backward.

How Growth Hormone Is Produced

Growth hormone is produced naturally in the pituitary gland of the human body, however, due to medical issues some people don’t produce an adequate amount and may require HGH therapy.

The practice of HGH therapy dates all the way back to the late ‘60s when scientists and medical professionals began using growth hormone to treat stunted growth in children. Since the early trials were so successful, more and more research has been conducted on HGH, and it is currently used to treat a much broader spectrum of medical conditions. Studies show that growth hormone therapy slows the progression of age-related degenerative diseases while increasing longevity. HGH can also be linked to an increased sex drive, a positive effect on maintaining mental acuity, and an overall improvement in the general sense of well-being.

The Efficacy Of HGH

Although there is irrefutable evidence of HGH’s efficacy, there is a fair bit of controversy surrounding HGH – most of which can be attributed to a misinterpretation of medical studies. In reality, HGH appears to be relatively safe when utilized properly under the advice of a health care professional. Additionally, some medical professionals say that the dangers surrounding HGH are quite overblown and those complications are either non-existent or minimal.

Side Effects

In most cases where HGH therapy patients experience side effects, they will experience one or more of the following – fluid retention, blood sugar rise, and headaches. There are a few more severe side effects, but they are generally associated with extremely high doses. Current research suggests that for the most part, small doses of HGH are not harmful. At IMH we have a testing protocol designed to make sure every patient is safe and optimized in their therapy.

How To Test Deficiency

To test whether or not you have a growth hormone deficiency, make an appointment with your Innovative Men’s Health care provider, and discuss your concerns. The next step is that your physician will likely prescribe a simple blood test called the IGF-1. If you feel that you’re interested in starting HGH therapy, it’s best to discuss your concerns with your IMH anti-aging doctor to make sure you get the “go ahead” for treatment. We, at IMH, take ultimate pride in providing HGH optimization to ensure you are at your best and safe.
