What is Human Growth Hormone (HGH)?

Your pituitary gland rests at the base of your brain and it is responsible for producing many different bodily hormones. One particular hormone will be the human growth hormone or HGH for short. This kind of hormone serves a number of purposes such as improving tissue development by stimulating the formation of protein, resulting in strong bones, growing muscle mass and revitalizing the immune system.

HGH has been used widely used to increase growth and advancement in children struggling with growth hormone deficiencies. In many instances, the child’s growth was slowed due to the pituitary gland not generating enough growth hormone by itself.

HGH is prescribed as a powder with a diluting solution to use as an injectable delivery process. These are the only supplements which have been given the green light by the FDA. Sprays and pills that are marketed to improve HGH can be found without a prescription but do not have FDA approval.

What does HGH do?

Just like other hormones inside our body, as we age, our hormone levels start to naturally decrease. This is especially true for human growth hormone. It is vital that you understand how hormones inside the body are closely associated with each other, and just how low levels of human growth hormone can impact other hormones through the entire body. It will certainly not be a smart idea to add a hormone to your body without first being familiar with your current hormone levels and how the new hormones will affect your body’s chemistry.

Bio-identical human growth hormone, or HGH, is naturally produced and is used to treat hormone imbalance and growth issues in both men and women via bioidentical human growth hormone replacement treatment. You might have some incorrect ideas about HGH, as it regularly gets a poor reputation for its use in professional sports performance enhancement. Human growth hormone is a vital component of your body and a primary hormone which fuels the growth of your tissues. A drop in growth hormone levels can be troublesome for the body’s chance to restore itself from injuries as well as to prevent aging.

 

Benefits of HGH Therapy

Thousands of patients report a number of health benefits after starting HGH therapy. Unlike other anti-aging therapies that only help you aesthetically, human growth hormone has shown to reverse aging at the source. This is why patients at Optimal Health report feeling healthier and younger after a few weeks on treatment. If you are not feeling like your usual self, have gained weight, or are struggling to stay awake during the day, human growth hormone may be the medical solution you are looking for.

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is the dominant sex hormone in men, and it is responsible for the creation of the male sexual characteristics, however, it is also produced by women in smaller quantities. The pituitary gland is located near the base of the brain, and it transmits signals into a male’s testicles (or to a woman’s ovaries) which ignite emotions associated with sexual desire.

In men, testosterone performs an essential part in puberty, the time when a child grows to sexual maturity, and he can reproduce. The following alterations usually occur during this life stage:

  • The penis and testicles develop
  • Facial, pubic, and body hair grow
    The voice deepens
  • Muscles and bones turned become stronger
  • Height will increase

Soon after puberty, testosterone assists to manage the following bodily processes:

  • Production of red blood cells
  • Bone thickness
  • Fat circulation
  • Muscle durability and size
  • Facial and body hair
  • Sperm production
  • Sex drive

Although testosterone is a key component for male puberty, changes in testosterone levels are linked to changes in mood, energy, fertility, sexual desire, and overall health. Androgens such as testosterone, promote an overall decrease in fat and influence one’s memory.

Testosterone levels eventually decrease in older men as a normal part of ageing. By age 45, testosterone production begins to decrease by one percent per year. Based on a study released in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, however, it is broadly recognized that levels might begin to decrease whenever a man is within his 30’s.

What is "Low T"?

In certain cases, reduced levels of testosterone (also known as low T) might be the result of a medical condition referred to as hypogonadism, which takes place when the body doesn’t produce usual levels of the hormone. It may occur if there is an issue with the testicles or the pituitary gland which makes it incapable to produce usual levels of testosterone. Signs and symptoms of low T differ based on the reason behind the issue and also the age when it takes place. In males who are middle-aged and past, signs and symptoms may include:

  • Low energy and stressed out mood
  • Sleeping disorders
  • Low libido Issues having or maintaining a penile erection
  • Loss of muscle mass and bone strength

Not every male with age-related low testosterone will encounter any signs and symptoms, and others aren’t troubled by them. Troubles with energy, sleeping, and emotional changes can also be the result of other issues like the negative side-effects of some medicines or too much alcohol consumption.

Testosterone Deficiency

Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome, or Hypogonadism, is a condition in which a man’s body does not produce enough testosterone, the essential male hormone. This condition by and large influences older men, however more youthful patients can likewise be influenced for an assortment of reasons. 

While the expression “andropause” is now and then used for this condition, it is inaccurate. In contrast to menopause, testosterone insufficiency disorder isn’t an unavoidable consequence of maturing. 

Testosterone assumes a key role in a man’s sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution, muscle mass plus mental and physical vitality.

Testosterone in males is produced in the testicles. Testosterone deficiency emerges when the testicles neglect to produce enough testosterone. There are two main reasons for testosterone  deficiency: 

  1. Impaired testicular function: Referred to by medical experts as essential hypogonadism or testicular failure. This condition emerges on the grounds that the man’s testicles have some irregularity preventing them from creating testosterone
  2. Impaired pituitary or hypothalamus function: Referred to by medical experts as hypogonadotropic or secondary hypogonadism. This condition emerges in light of the fact that the capacity of the pituitary and additionally nerve center (the two glands in the brain that regulate hormone creation) is disabled.

Symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency

There are a few symptoms that are associated with a deficiency of testosterone in men:

  • Reduced libido 
  • Increase in body fat 
  • Loss of bone density 
  • Unfavorable changes in cholesterol profile
  • Anxiety or depression 
  • Difficulty concentrating or deciding 
  • Poor work performance
  • Difficulty getting or keeping up an erection 
  • Loss of body fitness (muscle) mass 
  • Poor results from exercise programs 
  • Hair Loss

Effects of Testosterone Deficiency

Beyond the symptoms and the causes that many men encounter, testosterone deficiency syndrome can also contribute to the recurrence or worsening of some diseases, such as:

  • Increased risk of heart diseases. 
  • Increased risk of death from a cardiovascular disease
  • Increased risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome
  • Higher instances of osteoporosis

What's? Erectile Dysfunction

Most men are not overly concerned with not staying firm long enough during sexual intercourse, especially if it’s occasional. It is perfectly normal to have erection troubles or difficulty maintaining it from time to time. But if you constantly experience this issue, then it becomes a serious problem. In medical terms, the condition is termed erectile dysfunction, popularly known as ED, where difficulty in keeping a firm erection interferes with sexual activity.

ED is quite a common disorder, especially among men between 40 and 70. Recent studies on erectile dysfunction suggest that nearly 10% of men aged between 40 and 70 years have either severe or complete ED. And an additional 25% in this same category have mild to intermittent erectile difficulties. However, it is less prevalent in younger men, with at least 5% to 10% being affected by this issue.

For men, ED affects their overall quality of life. Their moods change, they suffer from low-esteem, and lack of interest in sex, which impacts their sexual relationships. Read on to understand some of the best treatments available.

Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

Sometimes, getting an erection might prove to be more difficult than normal, which shouldn’t automatically be cause for concern. However, you should be worried if any of these symptoms occur very frequently for a prolonged duration:

Regularly struggling to achieve an erection
Struggling to maintain an erection during sex
Feeling embarrassed, anxious, and guilty and about having sex.

Possible Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

ED occurs when one or more of the core systems that are responsible for an erection become affected. These systems are the vascular system, endocrine system, and the nervous system.

Although older men are more likely to develop ED, in most instances age is not the primary cause but a secondary one, meaning that older men often develop ED due to age-related illnesses.

ED can be caused by:

Certain Diseases and Health Conditions

  • High blood pressure
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Injuries on either the penis, prostate, pelvis, and bladder
  • Injury from prostate cancer treatments

Certain Psychological Issues

  • Anxiety about sexual performance
  • General life stress
  • Depression
  • Guilt and embarrassment
  • Low self-esteem
  • Fear of sexual failure

Health-Related Factors and Behaviors

  • Heavy drinking
  • Smoking
  • Recreational drug use
  • Obesity
  • Lack of physical activity

Certain Medications

  • High blood pressure medications
  • Some diuretics
  • Drugs that control the central nervous system: tranquilizers, sedatives, and amphetamines
  • Anxiety treatments
  • Anti-depressant
  • Appetite suppressants
  • Some cancer treatment drugs
  • Opioid painkillers and Hormone drugs
  • Peptic ulcer drugs

How To Test For Erectile Dysfunction?

Your doctor will take you through a series of questions first. A physical check to examine your genitals will help discover if there is any visible damage. In the next step, the doctor will go through your medical history to ascertain whether you have an existing condition that could lead to ED.

Finally, you will be asked to do a blood test to check for conditions such as low testosterone, heart disease, and diabetes among others. The doctor will check for symptoms that have persisted for longer than at least 3 months before making any diagnosis.

Other tests available for ED include the postage stamp test, which checks for physical rather than psychological causes. A postage stamp is applied around the penis to check the number of erections you will have in a night. The normal number of erections should be between 3-5 every night. Your doctor could also use the Poten test and Snap-Gauge test. Both of which are nocturnal erection tests.

Available Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction

Medications

The first line of treatment for ED is oral medicines (pills). This can either be Alprostadil, testosterone, sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil, or avanafil. Even with the popularity of Viagra and other drugs, most men report adverse side effects. In such cases, they are prescribed injectables or suppositories of alprostadil. The suppositories are inserted into the urethra.

Surgical Treatments

Surgery is obviously the very last resort once all else fails. There are risks involved but they so far have a high success rate. They are only used in extreme cases of ED. There are several surgical treatments but these two are the most popular:

Penile Implants: A penile implant or penile prosthesis is done on men whose ED is unlikely to resolve by itself. The implant is highly concealable. One is able to have normal penis sensation, orgasm, as well as ejaculation. It is a simple short procedure and most men should resume their normal function within two weeks.

Vascular Surgery: This type of surgery attempts to correct the blood vessels causing the ED.

Counseling

If a doctor decides that the cause of ED is psychological, they will recommend counseling. Counseling will help one deal with their emotional stress, anxiety, as well as other emotional triggers. Sometimes a physical cause is accompanied by a psychological one. For instance, when someone is overweight, they may tend to have low-esteem and fear of sexual failure. In such a case, the doctor will recommend counseling and continue to treat the physical cause.

Preventing Erectile Dysfunction

The best way to prevent ED is through lifestyle changes. These changes include:

- Regularly exercising
- Maintaining a healthy balanced diet
- Not overindulging in alcohol, drugs, and smoking
- Reducing stress
- Maintaining a healthy weight.

Important Facts About Erectile Dysfunction

  • Men who have diabetes are almost 3 times more likely to develop ED compared to men who have no diabetes.
  • Physical causes are responsible for 90% of ED causes 
  • The prevalence of ED increases as men age
  • Almost 30 million American men are affected by ED
