Everything You Need to Know About HGH Therapy

If you love sports, you must have heard about the Human growth hormone (HGH). The hormone plays a significant role in the maintenance of healthy tissues in your brains and other vital organs.

Naturally, the hormone is produced by the pituitary glands. It is then transported through the bloodstream to the liver. Here, it's converted to growth factors that stimulate bone, muscle and tissue growth.

A doctor can do this by simply testing your blood. Cases of human growth hormone deficiency are quite rate and result from underperforming pituitary glands or a pituitary tumor.

However, it may also be prescribed due to muscle wasting or short bowel syndrome. Some healthcare experts believe people who exhibit signs of deficiency are eligible for this treatment plan.
