Hi, I'm Dr. Tan from Dr Tan and Partners
In this video, I will talk about human growth hormone. Commonly known as HGH.
HGH is a hormone produced by a tiny gland located under your brain called the pituitary gland. Your body produces a lot during childhood to stimulate the growth of bones.
In adulthood, your body still produces HGH in small amounts to maintain the health of your bones and organs. As you get older, the amount of HGH produced naturally by your body decreases more and more.
If the body becomes deficient in HGH, it can cause symptoms such as low libido, decreased muscle mass and strength, dry and thin skin and difficulty concentrating. It can also cause other less visible changes, such as an increase in cholesterol levels, weaker bones and heart disease.
Of course, having these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you are deficient in HGH. Maybe you just need to do a little more exercise!
However, if you think that your HGH levels may be too low, it is best to consult a doctor first. Blood tests can be done to determine if your HGH is too low or not, and help you decide if you need HGH replacement therapy.
Synthetic HGH available as an injection has been around for many years. It is used to make children taller and to build muscle in patients with chronic diseases.
Treatment with HGH can only be given as a daily self-administered injection through a small needle in the abdomen. Like the way people with diabetes get insulin injections.
The treatment of HGH is not for everyone. However, if you really have HGH deficiency, replacing it at normal levels can have a great positive impact on your well-being.
If you think you may be suffering from HGH deficiency, consult our doctors for a consultation.

Thanks for seeing it. I'm Dr. Tan, from Dr. Tan and Partners.
