Anti-Aging Therapies FAQ

What is HGH?
Human Growth Hormone is produced in the pituitary gland and it travels from the bloodstream to all tissues. HGH is responsible of cell regeneration and reproduction.

What is HGH therapy?
HGH has been used since the late 50s to treat delayed growth. Since there was a limited supply, it was not until the late 80s that a man-made growth hormone called Humatrope, extended its applications. And by 1996, after being approved by the FDA, treatment on HGH deficient adults started to rise.

How is it administered?
HGH is injected so you can fully benefit from its properties. The oral forms of HGH are actually precursors, releasers or activators of growth hormone. Having Humatrope injected directly in your bloodstream is the fastest way to achieve results.

How does it work?
The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus are known as the endocrine system’s command center. They are responsible for secreting the hormones which regulate us. Once HGH is distributed on our system is able to reach the liver and stimulate the release of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), another growth hormone that is involved in tissues and bones’ maturation , as well as metabolic processes.

Do you offer a follow-up plan?
You should expect a follow-up blood test every three or six-month interval depending on the length of time under treatment.

How long does the treatment take?
Depending on the symptom being treated patients can stay in Ensenada for a few weeks to a few months. If you are going to continue treatment at home, you should not stop it until your doctor advices to; an abrupt is never recommended.

When taking HGH what are the major side effects?
Although infrequent, there are known side effects, our job is to keep them to the minimum by stepwise dose titration. If you have found or heard of unpleasant effects, it is because precautions were not taken at their facility; and it was given in excess. Side effects include pain due to joint or muscle overgrowth, hyperglycemia (high sugar levels), intracranial pressure and water retention, among others.

I don’t qualify for Hormone Replacement Therapy, is there a way to increase my hormone levels naturally?
You should know that your lifestyle plays an important role in hormone levels. Adequate sleep, good nutrition, laughter, and exercise should be enough to maintain an optimum quality of life.

Could you name a few benefits from hormone therapies?
We usually believe that growth hormone only intervenes in our growth in youth; however there are equally important functions that carry out throughout our lifetime. It has been linked directly and indirectly with the construction of tissues because it generates cells and reduces their death, it regulates our body composition, promotes the growth of muscles and bones, and is responsible for stimulating adipose cells to translate fatty acids into energy.

Are there any signs when there is a hormone deficiency?
Any deficiency or alteration in the endocrine system results in an imbalance that causes growth problems, energy management deficiency and reproductive issues. Even the response we have to stress and injuries comes from our hormones.
