As we age, our natural production of human growth hormone (HGH) slowly diminishes. This decline begins after age 30 and by age 60 many men will have lost 75% or more of the hormone. Human growth is high during childhood and is indirectly and directly responsible for bone development, muscle accrual and system growth. HGH is a FDA approved treatment for many pediatric growth disorders but it is also approved for adult growth hormone deficiency. Most of the actions associated with growth hormone are actually from IGF-1 a GH mediated growth proxy agonists . After you stop growing the body still needs the hormone to assist in normal functions, so replacement becomes a viable solution. If symptoms are not present this treatment usually isn’t too necessary. The symptoms of reduced human growth hormone in men can include: A higher level of body fat, especially around the waist, Fatigue and Osteopenia/Osteoporosis(Fractures).
