Our HGH Physicians Listen to you!
Until recently the effects ofHuman Growth Hormone Deficiency (LOW HGH) in adults were unknown. It is now recognized as a specific clinical syndrome with numerous physiological consequences with effects on both men's and women's health;
- Changes in body composition including obesity.
- Loss of sex drive, impotence or low libido.
- Lipids and cholesterol in the blood.
- Muscle strength, mass and tone.
- Bone composition and healing.
- Exercise capacity and energy.
- Cardiovascular risks.
- Psychological well-being.
Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD) can be effectively treated with recombinant Human Growth Hormone (HGH / rhGH). A medically supervised HGH treatment program has many benefits that can improve the user’s life on every level imaginable and AAG Health HGH Clinic doctors specialize in treating adults - both men and women who are experiencing symptoms and problems associated with AGHD and effects of other hormone-realted health conditions.

Hormones can be thought of as "messengers" that are produced by the endocrine glands and then sent all over the body to stimulate specified activities. For example, growth, digestion, reproduction, and sexual functions are all triggered by hormones and they all depend on hormones to work properly.
Human Growth Hormone is considered the Master Hormone because it effects every cell in the body and also helps to regulate so many of the other hormones. This is one of the reasons HGH Therapy can have such a great impact on a person who is diagnosed as HGH deficient.
HGH (Growth Hormone) is one of several endocrine hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, melatonin and DHEA that decline in production as we age. As its name suggests, Human Growth Hormone is an endocrine hormone that makes humans grow. As this hormone declines with, age so do the benefits to the body.
HGH is a complex protein molecule of 191 amino acids linked in a specific sequence. It is secreted in pulses by the pituitary gland. These pulses vary between 10 and 30 per day and can be strengthened by exercise. For years, doctors have prescribed HGH for children who needed a growth boost but growth deficiencies do not just affect children, they can be a significant problem fo adults too. HGH is critical for tissue repair, healing, muscle growth, bone strength, brain and heart function, physical and mental health, energy, sex drive and metabolism.
Somatropin, or Somatotropin, is the man-made version or bio-synthetic form of Human Growth Hormone. Each manufacturer of Somatropin growth hormone rHGH, assigns its own brand name, such as Genotropin, Norditropin, Saizen and Somatropin. Theses HGH Therapy products are available only by prescription and administered by injection. Human Growth Hormone treatments should always be supervised by an experienced hormone replacement doctor who is an expert in HGH injectables and hormone mediciation delivery methods.
HGH (Growth Hormone) is produced at a rate that peaks during adolescence, at time when normal growth is accelerated. The production of HGH decreases with age, 14% each year onaverage. Humans normally produce about 500 micrograms of HGH daily at age 20. By age 80, the daily production falls to 60 (or less) micrograms. Many doctors consider IGF-1 levels below 200 to be HGH deficient and a diagnosis on Adult Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency Syndrome is made.
In the month of August of 1996, the FDA approved recombinant human Growth Hormone (rhGH) for the use in adult patients for the first time. Before, it was approved it only was authorized for use to promote growth in short children with growth deficiencies. Now HGH is commonly prescribed by physicians and hormone specilaists like endocrinologists and urologists for deficient adults to treat Adult Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency Syndrome.
AAG Health offers, to qualified individuals based on medical necessity, HGH Therapy and a variety of growth hormone treaments including growth hormone injections in the form of medically supervised hormone replacement programs that are designed to safely replenish and replace your body's own production of HGH. Human Growth Hormone Therapy can benefit men experiencing male menopause symptoms and women experiencing menopause.
For most people the pituitary gland produces sufficient HGH to retain a youthful appearance until age 35 or so. Then, somewhere between age 40 and 50, the body's ability to produce HGH declines to the point where the signs of Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD) begin to show. In women the loss of hormones signals menopause; in men - male menopause or andropause.
Signs of Adult Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD):
- SKIN Skin loses elasticity, becomes thinner, sags, and wrinkled.
- ENERGY Loss of vigor, vitality, endurance and stamina.
- BONE Bones lose strength. Tendency toward osteoporosis.
- SEXUAL POWER Loss of sexual powers, function and libido.
- MUSCLE Muscles quickly lose strength, mass and tone.
- FAT Fat tissue increases and accumulates around the body.
- MEMORY Memory begins to fade with loss of focus, concentration.
- HEART Heart muscle loses strength affecting cardiovascular function.
- KIDNEY Decreased kidney function.
- IMMUNE SYSTEM Decreased immunity and increased healing time.
- HAIR Hair becomes thinner and loses color; graying starts in earnest.
- CHOLESTEROL Increased cholesterol level (the 'bad' cholesteral).
HGH Studies. The first major study showing the promise of growth hormone replacement or HGH Therapy was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (Rudman; 323:1-6 1990). This human growth hormone study was orchestrated by the renowned Dr. Daniel Rudman. It divided 21 men (between the ages of 60 and 80) with IGF-1 levels less than 350 IU per liter into two groups: 12 test subjects and 9 control subjects.
HGH Injections. A 6-month period of data collection was followed by a 6-month period in which the 12 test subjects received HGH injections for hormone replacement and the 9 control subjects did not. The results were promising: increases in lean muscle mass, decreases in adipose fat tissue, and increases in vertebral bone height. All test subjects had measurable increases in HGH levels, as measured by IGF-1 blood values. The control group that did not receive growth hormone injections had none of these results. The effects of six months of human growth hormone on body mass and adipose-tissue mass were equivalent in magnitude tothe changes incurred during the 10 to 20 years of aging.
Since Rudman’s landmark growth hormone study, leading doctors and health care professionals worldwide have performed many growth hormone related studies that all come to the same conclusion – HGH therapy works. For a complete background on recent and past HGH studies and information on HGH Growth Hormone Replacment Therapy in general including HGH injections and treatment protocols used by hormone specialists, endocrinologists and urologists, the book entitled “Grow Young With HGH” by Dr. Ronald Klatz (ISBN 0-06-098434-1) is fascinating reading and a “must read” for anyone interested in a growth hormone treatment program.
HGH and the mind. The nervous system and brain are made up of cells called neurons, which are permanent and never grow back once damaged. HGH stimulates the repair and rejuvenation of these particular neurons. The proteins in the brain that are responsible for storing our memories are also affected in a positive way. This is why HGH therapy will normally help improve a patient's mood, memory, focus and concentration.
Learning, memory, and intelligence all depend on adequate supplies of HGH. According to a team of Swedish Scientists they discovered why HGH therapy makes so many people feel so good. HGH acts in the brain exactly like an antidepressant, raising the level of neurotransmitter B- endorphin, which has been called the brain's own opiate. It also lowers the level of dopamine, which is associated with feelings of agitation. It reverses the outlooks, expectations and attitudes associated with the aging process.
Many other experts expressed that human growth hormone replacement appears to reduce stress, build self esteem, drive and self confidence. HGH can also reverse the decline in memory and cognitive performance.
HGH and weight gain. About 68%of Americans are classified as overweight individuals. Obesity is the 2nd most common preventable death in the United States. Human Growth Hormone may be one of the most effective fat loss regimens ever discovered.
HGH and emotional health. The psychological and emotional symptoms associated with Adult Growth hormone Deficiency (AGHD) include a reduced sense of well being, low energy, vitality, capacity for work, emotional liability, including mood swings, anxiety, depression, and increased social isolation. Important physical signs are increased body fat, especially around the waist (apple shape rather than pear shape), decrease in muscle mass, and thin, wrinkled, or prematurely aged skin. Other symptoms may consist of the following: Reduced cardiac performance, poor sleep, decreased muscle mass and strength, little to no sex drive or loss of libido.
HGH and aging. Aging takes place at a more rapid pace when your hormones start to decrease. Once the hormone levels start to decrease, your body starts to change. You tend to gain weight easier, you are not as athletic, you tend to be more up tight about things, depressed more frequently, these are all signs that your hormone levels are beginning to drop. Natural hormones are protective and aging is related to the loss of these hormones. From an early age, growth hormone is responsible for cell generation and regrowth. Replacing the hormone level to youthful levels delays the aging process. It is said that we don't lose hormones because we age, but rather we age because we lose our hormones. The ultimate anti-aging solution may very well be to replace one's lost hormones with hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
