Adult-Onset HGH Deficiency and Cognitive Impairment

Human growth hormone (HGH) is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland. It is responsible for a variety of bodily functions, including growth, development, and metabolism. HGH also plays a role in cognitive function.

In adults, HGH is thought to help protect the brain from damage and to promote the growth of new brain cells. HGH deficiency can lead to a number of cognitive problems, including:

  • Memory problems
  • Concentration problems
  • Slowed thinking
  • Difficulty learning new things
  • Impaired decision-making

The exact mechanism by which HGH deficiency causes cognitive impairment is not fully understood. However, it is thought that HGH may help to protect the brain from damage by promoting the growth of new brain cells and by reducing inflammation.

HGH deficiency is often diagnosed in adults who have a history of childhood growth hormone deficiency. However, it can also occur in adults who have never had growth hormone deficiency. Some of the causes of adult-onset HGH deficiency include:

  • Pituitary gland tumors(The exact underlying cause of pituitary gland tumors is unknown. However, there are a number of factors that may increase the risk of developing a pituitary tumor, including agepituitary tumors are more common in adults than in children; sexwomen are more likely than men to develop pituitary tumors; family historyif you have a family history of pituitary tumors, you are more likely to develop a pituitary tumor yourself; certain medical conditionspeople with certain medical conditions, such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), are at an increased risk of developing pituitary tumors; exposure to certain chemicals or radiationexposure to certain chemicals or radiation may increase the risk of developing a pituitary tumor. It is important to note that most people with pituitary tumors do not have any known risk factors. Nevertheless, regardless of the underlying cause of the tumors, in many cases HGH supplementation has been effective in totally eliminating the deficiency and all its terrible symptoms.)
  • Head injuries
  • Certain medications
    (There are a few ways that certain medications might cause HGH deficiency: Medications that damage the pituitary gland – some medications, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy, can damage the pituitary gland. This can lead to a decrease in the production of HGH; medications that block the release of HGHsome medications, such as steroids, can block the release of HGH and this can also lead to a decrease in the production of HGH; medications that increase the metabolism of HGH – some medications, such as alcohol, can increase the metabolism of HGH and this can also lead to a decrease in the production of HGH. It is important to note that not all people who take these medications will develop HGH deficiency. The risk of developing HGH deficiency varies depending on the medication, the dose of the medication, and the length of time the medication is taken. If you are taking a medication that you think might be causing HGH deficiency, you should contact us and set up an appointment with one of our doctors. We can test your HGH levels to see if you have HGH deficiency. If you do have HGH deficiency, your doctor can discuss all the options with you.)
  • Autoimmune diseases

(Autoimmune diseases are diseases in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues. In the case of HGH deficiency, the immune system may attack the cells in the pituitary gland that produce HGH. This can lead to a decrease in the production of HGH, which can cause a number of symptoms, including:

  • Growth retardation in children
  • Short stature in adults
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Low sex drive
  • Depression
  • Thinning skin
  • Increased risk of fractures

If you have an autoimmune disease and you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should make an appointment and talk to one of the board-certified doctors at our clinic. He can test your HGH levels to see if you have HGH deficiency. If you do have HGH deficiency, rest assured that there is a path forward to a better life.

Some of the autoimmune diseases that can cause HGH deficiency include:

  • Amyloidosis
  • Graves' disease
  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis
  • Lupus erythematosus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Sjögren's syndrome

It is important to note that not all people with autoimmune diseases will develop HGH deficiency. The risk of developing HGH deficiency varies depending on the autoimmune disease, the severity of the autoimmune disease, and the treatment for the autoimmune disease.)

If you are experiencing any of the cognitive problems listed above, you should talk to one of the board-certified physicians at our clinic. HGH replacement therapy may be an effective treatment for your adult-onset HGH deficiency.
