Although the use of Human Growth Hormone is more common among men trying to build lean muscle mass, many women are now turning to HGH for its weight loss benefits. While some women may require growth hormone therapy to correct an underlying HGH deficiency, studies have proven that otherwise healthy women can achieve the same results with some basic lifestyle changes, such as eating better and exercising more often.
HGH levels in women typically begin to decline in a woman's early 20's. Although HGH plays a role in helping women maintain a healthy target weight, the majority of the time, middle-aged weight gain - especially in the stomach, hips and thighs - is in fact the result of hormonal changes taking place within the body. Many of these changes occur during menopause, as estrogen and progesterone levels begin to decline.
More likely than not, symptoms like weight gain, sleep disturbance, low sex drive, and many others, can be caused by additional unbalanced hormones including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. These hormonal imbalances are oftentimes brought on by perimenopause, menopause, adrenal fatigue and thyroid dysfunction. Whether a HGH deficiency is present or not, hormone testing can help determine which treatment route is best for you.
What is HGH Deficiency?
Growth hormone deficiencies in women are a result of the pituitary gland not producing enough HGH. Adequate levels of HGH help women retain skin elasticity and improve body-fat ratio. Additionally, balancing HGH levels significantly reduces a woman's risk of developing osteoporosis - a condition estimated to effect 1 out of every 5 women.
