HGH Doctors in San Jose CA Provide Safe Hormonal Therapies
Growth hormone is involved with glucose metabolism and protein synthesis and maintains steady cellular metabolism. As the body ages, the amount of GH it produces begin to slow down. If the decline occurs too fast or the levels drop too low, the body metabolism becomes impaired. HGH doctors in San Jose CA provide safe hormonal therapies to restore adequate hormonal balance, which is necessary for full mental and physical maintenance.
The condition of GH deficiency is termed Adult Growth Hormone Disorder (AGHD) and carries the following clinical symptoms:
- Increased mid-section weight gain
- Reduced strength
- Depressed mood and emotional instability
- Less exercise capacity
- Poor venous access
- Elevated LDL cholesterol
- Less bone density
- Low energy and fatigue
- Impaired sleep
- Thinner skin; less elasticity in skin
- Hair loss; hair growing in thinner
- Loss of muscle mass
- Lower immune function
- Longer recovery and healing time
It is easy to see that these are the classic signs of aging. What were once accepted milestones of getting older have now been found to be symptoms of a medical condition. This is not fallacy, or a means of financial gain; it is a medically recognized fact. Also true is that it is a treatable condition, with help from HGH doctors in San Jose CA.
The visible differences in how different people age from different cultures, ethnic backgrounds, lifestyles and genders are an indication of how varied body chemistry is. When two women of the same age look like there is a 10 to 20 year age gap between them, an obvious comment about the woman who looks younger is that she has ‘good genes.’ It is not just genetics; it is everything that influences her body chemistry.
Before treatment for these symptoms can begin, a verification of low levels of growth hormone is needed; this is done with a blood test. With the results of the laboratory blood work and full patient information, the HGH doctors in San Jose CA are able to make a diagnosis and treat the patient accordingly, using a full scope of patient information. It is this detail in evaluation that allows for the most accuracy in dose measurement amounts.
Treatment for AGHD is Individually Prescribed
Balancing hormones can increase physical and mental strength and capacity. The practice of hormone replacement therapy requires specific knowledge. HGH doctors in San Jose CA review the patient’s full profile before prescribing the medication dose; they do not follow an age-matched normal range in treating AGHD because they understand the multitude of factors that can influence the body’s natural production of GH as well as the rate of its decline.
Besides the natural age-related decline, there are other circumstances that can cause a person’s levels to drop too low. GH levels are produced in their largest amounts during the stages of deepest sleep; the individual who does not get enough sleep or who does not sleep long enough to reach that heaviest sleep will curtail natural production.
The combination of lack of sleep and elevated stress levels go hand in hand, with each side intensifying the other.
GH production increases during exercise and physical activity; if a person lives a sedentary lifestyle, his or her body will not produce as much of the hormone as someone of the same age who exercises regularly.
Diet, genetics, other physical conditions and medications will affect hormonal balance. The HGH doctors in San Jose CA require full medical disclosure from each patient to be able to assess the proper dosage amount of HGH to be prescribed.
Their precise dosage evaluation also prevents the possibility of the side effects associated with too much HGH. An excess of GH can cause weakness, nerve problems, and excess thickening of the bones.
HGH Injections are the Only Method of Growth Hormone Replacement
Growth hormone is only effective if it is administered by injection. It has been proven ineffective in any other form due to its fragility and large size. Over the counter GH products are unlikely to have any benefits as treatment for hormone imbalance because they do not contain HGH; they are risky because it is not always known what is contained in them. Legitimate HGH doctors in San Jose CA will only prescribe injectable HGH as treatment for their patients.
The process of using recombinant DNA technology to make bio identical GH is very precise and not easily duplicated. There are strict regulatory protocols that must be followed in the manufacturing process. All of the prescription brands offered by Kingsberg Medical come from well-established, well-known pharmaceutical laboratories with all of the proper authorization, like Novo Nordisk, Pfizer and Eli Lilly, to name a few.
As with everything else, there are counterfeit and illegal medications. HGH manufactured overseas is not legal in the U.S.; many of them have been found to contain contaminants like bacterial residue left over from the manufacturing processes. GH is a 191 amino acid chain; some of the counterfeits have 192 amino acids in the chain – it does make a difference and invalidates the claim of the medication being genuine growth hormone. Other fakes are not as easy to spot; marketers do their best to duplicate the labels of authentic medications.
The best and easiest way to avoid getting an inferior or harmful medicine is by obtaining it only from HGH doctors in San Jose CA at reputable medical facilities.
