HGH - Stress and Depression
It is well known that chronic stress can contribute to depression and withdrawal from work and social relationships.
Stress is physiological, affecting both the body and the brain. There are possible hormone related health issues that can
cause a person to be unable to properly cope with stress. Below we discuss some of the main hormones that could contribute to stress related illness
as well as high blood pressure and obesity.
Cortisol is made in the adrenal glands and is known as the stress hormone because it is highly connected to the body's response to stress.
Cortisol is instrumental in balancing glucose (blood sugar) levels, regulating your metabolism, providing the flight or fight response, reducing tissue inflammation and controlling blood pressure.
A saliva test can measure an imbalance of cortisol hormone coming from the adrenal glands. Low levels of the hormone could impair your ability to successfully cope with stress.
HGH and IGF-1. Insulin-like growth factor or IGF-1 helps measure HGH in your body and if you have AGHD or adult growth hormone deficiency, coping with stress can become more difficult.
Human Growth Hormone helps regulate other hormones in the body and is a factor is memory, sleep, emotional stability, focus and concentration.
Adults with HGH insufficiency can have very low energy, fatigue, excessive weight gain, muscle and bone loss, lack of focus and concentration, heightened anxiety and nervousness, as well as foggy thinking.
These symptoms of low HGH levels lend themselves to a growing inability to effectively manage stress.
Testosterone, Estrogen and Progesterone. Sex hormone deficiency can make stress unmanageable.
For men with Andropause (Low T) and for women in early menopause, low sex hormones can cause problems with cognitive function and mental acuity.
Andropause and menopause are diagnosed with low T testing, LH, FSH, progesterone and estradiol levels.
Thyroid - Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism.
Thyroid function tests can help measure an underactive or overactive thyroid gland.
Throid imblance can cause severe lethargy, irresponsiveness, and inability to focus or pay attention.
HGH Medical Study show Athletic Performance Enhancement and Sports Injury Healing
Growth hormone, produced naturally in the body, is important for growth and metabolism. Injectable growth hormone is available by prescription for adults who have growth hormone deficiency or AGHD.
Many athletes including power sports, bodybuilders and weight lifters use the drug because it helps to quickly bulk up their muscles and gain lean muscle mass.
It also improves their physical performance making them more competitive.
Scientific research now shows that growth hormone improves physical performance as well as healing through its growth factors.
Another medical study showed those taking HGH lose less muscle and regain muscle strength with muscle while preventing muscle atrophy.
Medical researchers at the Sydney's Garvan Institute of Medical Research togeher with the Department of Endocrinology at St. Vincent's Hospital demonstrated that human growth hormone increases an athlete's ability to sprint.
Those athletes given growth hormone improved their sprint capacity by 4-5 percent The effect on sprint capacity nearly doubled in men who received testosterone injections in addition to growth hormone supplementation.
HGH is a hormone that stimulates cell growth and cell regeneration. HGH is sometimes prescribed for sports injuries but also has anti-aging effects, helping to increase energy, reduce fat, build and repair muscle tissue improving definition and muscle tone.
Doctors of orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine and molecular and integrative physiology, are continuing to test HGH for muscle, joint and tendon injuries and tears.
Injectable HGH stimulates faster healing and helps to boost the body's natural healing ability.
HGH is not like anabolic steroids, but does have anabolic properties that increase muscle mass. Growth Hormone prevents the degeneration of muscle and helps protect tendons and ligaments from injury.
While anabolic steroids can cause tendon ruptures and connective tissue injuries muscles gets bigger,
Human Growth Hormone naturally promotes connective tissue growth and cell regeneration.
For this reason, some people taking anabolic steroids, take growth hormone with it.

Online Health Magazines and Anti-Aging Medicine
Anti-Aging Medicine Doctors. In articles written to confuse patients, many online health portals and magazines are writing about Human Growth Hormone Replacement and Testosterone.
In articles titled,
Anti-Aging Doctors to Avoid,
Does HGH really slow down aging?,
Is testosterone a miracle drug for men?, these
authors try to highlight Hormone Replacement Therapy as an alternative medicine as opposed to a science-based medicine that is prescribed daily by
licensed endocrinologists, internal medicine physicians and urologists nationwide.
Many of the HGH articles criticize Anti-Aging Doctors and HRT Physicians as not being legitimately Board Certified,
when in reality many highly experienced bio-identical hormone specialists are indeed, Board Certified Medical Doctors.
One Online Health article states -
Beware any doctor who says he's board-certified in anti-aging medicine or age management.
The American Board of Medical Specialties does not recognize any such credential. The fact is, that many legitimate Hormone Specialists who are board certified,
have received their certification from the ABIM - American Board of Internal Medicine in Endocrinology, Diabetes, & Metabolism Policies, or the AACE - The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
Growth Hormone Doctors. In another online Health article, it states -
Beware any doctor who suggests that you take human growth hormone (HGH). It is illegal to prescribe for anti-aging purposes, period.
The truth is, qualified Endocrine professionals and Age Medicine Doctors do not prescribe Human Growth Hormone solely for anti-aging purposes. The article infers that any
endocrine physician that provides HGH Replacement Therapy to patients, should be classified as anything other than legal. The fact is, Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone Therapy
is legally prescribed to patients who are properly diagnosed with AGHD or Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency and to children with Growth Hormone Deficiency.
Hormone Prescription Happy. The same article states -
The fact is, genuine Hormone Replacement Physicians require blood testing, physical examination, medical evaluation and proper diagnoses before prescribing bio-identical hormones. Many internists, family doctors and general practitioners have no idea how to prescribe HRT, and possess little knowledge of
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement, Sexual Dysfunction Therapy, Menopause or Andropause therapy.
Find a good local Endocrinologist near you.
Beware any doctor who wants to prescribe you compounded bioidentical hormones. If you're interested in hormone replacement therapy, including bioidenticals, go to a board-certified endocrinologist, internist, geriatrician, or gynecologist to get a prescription for a standardized, FDA-approved drug.
