What is Human Growth Hormone?
Human growth hormone (HGH) is related to growth in children and teens. This vital hormone is produced naturally in our pituitary gland as we grow but slows down naturally as we age. Over the past century, researchers have begun to fully understand the effects of this GH drop-off and how it affects other areas of the body. GH supports the body’s regeneration and stimulates the growth of cells in muscles, bones, the brain, and vital organs. Additionally, it affects our metabolism, regulates heart function, and is linked to the inevitable ageing process. Replacement therapy supports the proper balance of GH in the body to produce harmonious parity of all systems.

Growth Hormone Deficiency
Patients with Growth Hormone Deficiency may experience varied effects on the body, including:
- Abdominal weight gain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dry skin
- Memory issues
- A compromised immune system
- Muscle weakness
- High cholesterol
- Cardiac health
- Insulin processing
While it is natural for our bodies to produce less Growth Hormone than our youth, Growth Hormone Deficiency can impact patients’ quality of life as they age. Growth Hormone deficiency may be associated with significant changes in body composition, bone density, lipid metabolism, cardiovascular function, and physical well-being. Additionally, individuals with decreased Growth Hormone levels may have affected sleep patterns and decreased immune system function. Dr Hamlet evaluates patients for Growth Hormone Deficiency using a comprehensive blood analysis.
What Causes Growth Hormone Deficiency?
Research into the function of GH and the pituitary gland’s hormone production started with clinical observations of people with gigantism and adults with acromegalic features. Acromegalic features include enlarged hands and feet, enlarged facial features, thickened skin, excessive sweating, fatigue and joint or muscle weakness, pain and limited joint mobility. Later, further research into the effects of a lack of GH led to the understanding that it increases insulin sensitivity with the risk of hypoglycaemia.  Growth Hormone Deficiency can affect children’s mental and physical development by slowing bone growth and depleting hair and nail health. As a result, these children tend to be a few inches shorter than average and may have a higher chance of obesity. Common causes of interrupted Human Growth Hormone production include brain trauma, a pituitary gland tumour, or simply time or genetics.
Dr Hamlet may recommend HGH therapy for adults if, after adequate laboratory testing and appropriate evaluation, an individual is diagnosed with HGH Deficiency. Dr Hamlet believes that HGH Replacement Therapy can help in these cases. Therefore, if you think that you may be experiencing symptoms of Growth Hormone Deficiency, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at Dr. Grant Hamlet today.

The HGH Replacement Therapy Programme
Clinical trials have shown that HGH Replacement Therapy is satisfactory for prolonged treatment.  Dr. Grant Hamlet HGH treatment programme consists of a single subcutaneous injection self-administered before bed for the length of treatment. This simple and quick process will be fully explained and demonstrated when you visit our clinic. All your treatment materials, including the medication and associated items, will be provided in a month-long supply. Then, we will retest your levels in six months to determine the best course of action for continued treatment.
HGH Replacement Therapy for Children
As short stature is a frequent sign of HGH Deficiency in children, a diagnosis requires all other potential causes of shortness (genetic, organic, hormonal, metabolic and/or psychogenic) to be excluded first.  Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy for children will improve bone and vocal development and metabolism.
What are the Side Effects of HGH Replacement Therapy?
Human Growth Hormone has a higher risk of side effects in older patients, especially in men.  Therefore, every patient will receive a private consultation and medical assessment before they are approved to receive Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy. Personalised HGH replacement therapy from a certified medical professional like Dr Grant Hamlet is safer than purchasing HGH from an online vendor. Side effects are more likely in individuals whose bodies do not necessarily need HGH therapy; this is why it is essential to undergo lab testing before taking HGH to reduce the odds of unnecessary side effects.
Side effects of taking Human Growth Hormone may include:
- Swelling of the arms and legs
- Enlarged breast tissue in males, a condition known as gynecomastia
- Pain or soreness of the joints and muscles
- Mood changes
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Increased insulin resistance
- Increased cholesterol levels
- Liver damage
The length of time that a patient might experience these effects will depend on the individual.

Can I purchase HGH online?
While buying Human Growth hormones online is possible, we strongly advise against this. The source, quality, and suitability of HGH treatment purchased online are risky and can have dangerous implications. Furthermore, knowing the accurate dosing levels for your HGH treatment is impossible without proper blood work and testing. We highly recommend undergoing testing from a certified medical professional and purchasing your high-quality treatment from a reputable source that will tailor your treatment to your individual needs.
Is Human Growth Hormone good for you?
Clinical research into the benefits of human growth hormone therapy for adults is still in its early phases. While side effects are possible, many growth hormone deficient patients see significant improvements in their physical and mental health with HGH replacement therapy. Therefore, patients should get laboratory bloodwork to determine if HGH replacement therapy will help. It is also highly recommended that patients receive their human growth hormone from a medical professional to guarantee quality and safety.
