What is Growth Hormone Deficiency GHD ?

Growth hormone deficiency is a condition that occurs when there is an extreme shortage of growth hormone. Since growth hormone is necessary to complete the normal growth phase within the body’s bones and tissues, those who do not have an adequate supply suffer from reduced growth. Those who are fully grown adults who are now found to have a growth hormone deficiency will lose the benefit of repair and regenerative healing that it is known for.

Not only does s significant drop in GH at around the age 30 lead us into the onset of menopause and andropause (male menopause), it is said that most of the symptoms of ageing we experience has a direct link to GH deficiency.

A growth hormone deficiency has been discovered to contribute to earlier death and a drop in GH causes decreased bone density, a loss in muscle mass and increased fat storage up to 40%. A shrinkage of all the major organs is also noted with decreased GH levels.

  • GH¬†raises glucose and free fatty acid levels.
