Growth Hormone

GROWTH HORMONE (GH OR HGH)

Many consider growth hormone to be one of the most important hormones of the human body. Most of us are familiar with the effects of growth hormone on children, it makes them grow. If a deficiency is left untreated, it can result in short stature adults. Many times, those same adults have growth hormone deficiencies that are life long.

Unfortunately, too frequently once a growth hormone deficient child reaches adulthood, growth hormone is stopped. Sometimes children with normal levels of hormone reach adulthood and then develop adult onset growth hormone deficiency that if left undiagnosed and untreated can be very detrimental and produce; diabetes, fatigue, depression, obesity, muscle wasting, poor exercise tolerance, poor motivation, hypertension, etc.

Dr. Arthur Zacco performs testing to determine if you indeed have a growth hormone deficiency. Hormone treatment is administered by daily injections just under the skin using very small needles.
