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 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 deficiencies that are life long.

Unfortunately, too frequently once a deficient child reaches adulthood, it 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 this deficiency. Hormone treatment is administered by daily injections just under the skin using very small needles.
