Unlocking Potential: Growth Hormone Optimization in Silver Spring, MD

Growth hormone (GH) deficiency happens when the pituitary gland stops producing GH either due to aging related processes or from traumatic brain injuries.  Adults with low growth hormone may have similar symptoms to low testosterone i.e. decreased muscle mass and exercise capacity, obesity marked by increased abdominal girth.

Why treat GH deficiency

Treatment of low growth hormones can enhance athletic performance, improve lean muscle mass, and may have anti-aging properties. GH has also been linked to faster healing of skeletal sports injuries. Infact, GH has been termed the fountain of youth. Growth hormone replacement therapy is well tolerated when dosed appropriately. Therapy option is limited to injectables.
