Medication for Low HGH
Some adults may notice a dramatic decrease in the production of the chemical known as somatotropin as they age. Also known as human growth hormone, this vital substance is crucial for a healthy body and mind. Treatment to reverse the symptoms associated with low HGH levels requires supplementation with a biologically identical synthesized version of recombinant HGH in the form of daily injections. This medication for low HGH provides the body with the boost it needs to make up the difference between what the pituitary gland produces and what the body needs.
Prescription medication for HGH deficiency targets each person’s individualized needs. Blood analysis provides the doctor (a hormone replacement therapy specialist) with the current level of human growth hormone based on the results of an IGF-1 blood test. Insulin growth factor 1 is another hormone that the liver secretes in direct response to the amount of HGH it receives each day. If not enough HGH reaches the liver, then the level of IGF-1 will decline accordingly. Because IGF-1 levels remain consistent in the bloodstream whereas HGH enters and exits in rapid pulsatile bursts, the IGF-1 marker is a more reliable diagnostic tool for GH deficiency.
The determination of human growth hormone medication uses the following information:
- Blood test results
- Physical examination findings
- Severity of symptoms
- Current state of health
- Any current medications or treatment
- Prior health issues
The hormone specialist gathers and reviews all of this information as provided by the blood test and physical exam reports, as well as the comprehensive medical questionnaire that each person completes before receiving a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Best Brands of HGH
Treatment for adult human growth hormone deficiency is simple. Medication for HGH is in the form of an injection self-administered daily in one’s home. That is the only form of real HGH. Some companies market HGH in other forms, including:
- HGH patches
- HGH sprays
- HGH pills
- HGH drops
These products are not real human growth hormones. Do not be fooled by imposter items that do not contain real HGH. Read the labels. You will probably see words like “booster” or “releaser” on the packaging. You may also see the following type of disclaimer: “this statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration” because over-the-counter supplements do not undergo testing unless there have been complaints about misleading information. Many companies sell these products under one name until they are told to remove them from sale, and then they have new packaging and brand names ready to go once again.
There are also HGH medication names that sound as if they come directly from China – they do. With all of the concerns about toxic products coming from overseas, the last thing you want to do is purchase a medication that you will inject into your body from a black market website. That is certainly putting your health and well-being at risk, not to mention it is illegal and you could be subject to prosecution.
