What Is Growth Hormone Therapy?

Human growth hormone (HGH) helps to maintain your metabolism and promotes growth in your overall body structure. HGH is normally produced in the pituitary gland. However, as a natural part of aging, its production starts to decline, which can result in growth hormone deficiency. The common signs of adult growth hormone deficiency are weakened muscles and bones, fatigue, increased body fat, poor mental health, and sexual dysfunction. As the most common way to increase your HGH levels and get you back to feeling stabilized, Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic offers growth hormone therapy. If you suspect you may be dealing with hormonal issues, we invite you to call our San Antonio, TX office to set up a consultation with board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Francisco Cardona.

What is Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD)?

Like most hormones naturally produced in the human body, HGH production begins to decline during early adulthood. Although there are well known external factors that can influence HGH levels such as poor sleep, stress, poor diet and lack of exercise or physical activity, it is understood that most adults will produce 50% less HGH by their mid 30’s and early 40’s

Common symptoms of Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency include: 

  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Decreased bone density
  • Impaired cardiac function
  • Decreased insulin sensitivity
  • Decrease is skin elasticity
  • Fatigue
  • Increase fat deposits
  • Poor memory

How Does Growth Hormone Therapy Work?

In order to determine if you have a growth hormone deficiency, we will perform a growth hormone stimulation test. If your hormone levels are not where they need to be, we may recommend growth hormone therapy, which is generally administered daily via injection. Dr. Cardona offers at-home treatment, but if you are not comfortable with injecting yourself, he provides on-site treatment at our San Antonio, TX office as well. You may be asked to schedule follow-up visits every 4 – 8 weeks so Dr. Cardona can monitor your HGH levels, bone density, and other metabolic processes to adjust your dosage as needed. In time, you should notice improvements in your strength, energy, mood, sexual libido, and overall well-being.

Increase Your Growth Hormone Production

Human growth hormone plays such a pivotal role in ensuring your organs are all functioning properly that if you are struggling with symptoms of growth hormone deficiency, it's time to take action. Dr. Cardona at Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic can provide growth hormone therapy to bring your levels back to where they need to be. To schedule an appointment at our San Antonio, TX practice, reach out to us today.

The cost of treatment for AGHD used to be prohibitive due to the high cost of recombinant Growth Hormone. Today, the cost of treatment is only about 10% of what it was in the early 2000’s due to the development of other treatment option like Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH).

?Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) like the name suggest, acts directly on the pituitary gland to signal release and increase circulating HGH levels with studies showing a 2-10 fold increase.

?Unlike treatment with HGH, therapy with GHRH and GHRP does not cause supra-physiologic levels of circulating Growth Hormone and IGF-1 levels requiring less frequent monitoring and having a decreased risk of adverse side effects.
