Low growth hormone - Balance Hormone Solutions

What is low growth hormone?

Growth hormone (GH) is a vital hormone produced by the pituitary gland that stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration. As we age, our bodies typically produce less growth hormone. Low GH levels in adults is medically defined as less than the normal range of 0-5 ng/mL in a blood test.

Some signs and symptoms of growth hormone deficiency include:

Causes of low GH levels can include:

Adults with chronically low GH may be candidates for growth hormone therapy. Getting a medical evaluation is important, as many symptoms of GH deficiency are common to other conditions too.

If low GH is confirmed through blood tests, daily injections of biosynthetic human growth hormone can help normalize levels. "I've seen many patients thrive after starting GH treatment," says Dr. Amanda Chen of Balance Hormone Solutions Integrative Health. "They report feeling more energetic, gaining muscle, improving skin thickness, and just overall better health."

Potential benefits depend on the severity of the deficiency. Those with very low or no natural GH may see greater improvements. Talk to an endocrinologist experienced in managing growth hormone deficiencies to discuss your options.
