Does HGH increase blood glucose? - Balance Hormone Solutions

Human growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pituitary gland. It plays an important role in growth during childhood and adolescence, but levels decline with age. Some people use synthetic HGH supplements later in life in an effort to slow aging or build muscle mass. There is an intricate relationship between HGH and blood glucose levels. HGH helps regulate carbohydrate and fat metabolism. It promotes the conversion of amino acids and fatty acids into energy rather than carbohydrates. This leads to lower blood glucose levels.

However, the effects of supplemental or synthetic HGH on blood glucose are more complex: In summary, natural HGH levels help regulate blood glucose by promoting fat burning and glucose uptake. But supplemental use, especially long-term, may raise blood sugar or contribute to insulin resistance in some people.
