What Are The Common Causes Of Low HGH In Men And In Women

Causes of Low HGH

The main causes of low HGH levels in both men and women are few, but the one that we deal with here at HT Medical Center is low HGH due to aging. Everyone gets older and their bodies change. Organs start to slow down and energy is not as pronounced. Body aches and pains start to occur as does memory loss, forgetfulness, a weakened immune system, less sexual desire, weaker bones, wrinkled skin, etc. Sound familiar? Are you experiencing some of these symptoms and more?

If so, it could be due to low HGH levels. Of the different causes of low HGH in adults, aging is the one that can be best fixed and reversed. How? The process is called hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and we have one of the best programs in the country for this kind of innovative treatment.

How does aging cause lower growth hormone levels? Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. The pituitary gland is located at the base of the brain and plays a very vital role in growth and development and in the functioning of the endocrine system as a whole.

Like all parts of the body, this gland slows down in its production of growth hormone and this is when a person will start to feel the symptoms that go along with lack of enough GH in their bloodstream. With HRT, one can raise their growth hormone levels and balance them out to feel like they are in their 20’s again. This kind of therapy has proven to be successful and that proof has been documented in a plethora of medical journal articles in journals published all over the world.

What Causes Low HGH Over 30, 40, 50

At any age over 30 (including 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70+) the pituitary gland will start (at about 30) and will continue to slow down (throughout the rest of one’s life). This is what causes low growth hormones. Creams, lotions, supplements and other over the counter remedies are usually found to be unhelpful in taking away the symptoms that go along with getting older and losing growth hormones. One has to attack this issue from the inside out. In other words, one must replace their missing hormones and with HRT it can be done.


HRT is when bio-identical replicas of human growth hormone are injected subcutaneously into the body at just the right doctor prescribed dosage. This medication is a 191 amino acid sequence that is produced in very controlled environments. The laboratories are controlled for atmospheric conditions such as temperature and light. HGH is also sensitive to movement.

Before being able to safely and legally partake in HRT, all patients must be tested. They must do so by getting blood work taken to determine if aging is what causes low HGH levels in their bodies. If so, this is when they can become a part of an HRT program.

An article published on the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health website made it very clear that any of the possible causes of low HGH can cause premature mortality. This can occur from such things as neuropsychiatric and cognitive issues, neuromuscular problems, cardiovascular problems that can lead to heart attack or stroke, metabolic and/or skeletal abnormalities. However, the good news is that the same article was very clear that HRT can reverse these issues and elongate life.

How Can You Avoid What Causes Low HGH

Avoiding what causes low HGH can sometimes be impossible if the reason is innately genetic, caused by an unavoidable disease or caused by aging. There are things that a person can do though to help slow down the process of waning growth hormones and help to slow the symptoms caused by one of the primary causes of low HGH; aging.

Here is a list of things that can help to keep growth hormones plentiful:

  • Eating well

Eating the right foods can make a large difference in the health of any individual. It can also make a difference in the way a person ages, looks and feels. Eating the correct nutrients such as foods rich in anti-oxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables and proteins can greatly help keep a body healthy and strong. Eating an excess amount of fatty, fried foods and refined sugars can be very detrimental to good health and growth hormone levels.

  • Exercising enough

Keeping to a rigid schedule of exercising daily is very important for good health and to keep some of what causes low HGH away. Make heart pounding workouts with weight training a good part of your lifestyle to stay healthy.

  • Sleeping enough

Getting enough sleep is so important. While the body is at rest, it heals, regenerates cells and tissues and produces growth hormones. It will not be able to do these things if it is deprived of the proper amount of sound, restful sleep (which experts say should be approximately 8 hours per evening).

  • Keeping stress levels low

Stress is dangerous for every aspect of health. It causes many different illnesses that people do not usually see coming. That is why HT Medical Center teaches about the importance of keeping stress levels low and even teaches their patients to practice relaxation techniques and time management.

  • Never smoking

The toxins in cigarette smoke are harmful to every single organ in the body. It causes premature aging, which in return can cause one of the most popular causes of low HGH.

  • Keeping alcoholic consumption to a responsible minimum

Like anything in life, moderation is key. The same goes for alcoholic consumption. Drinking responsibly can be healthy. It is when a person drinks alcohol in excess that problems can occur that can be what causes low growth hormones.
