The Importance of Balanced Growth Hormone and Insulin Levels

Written by Dr. Jonathan Peterson, Updated on May 28th, 2021

Two of the most critical metabolic hormones that your body produces are Insulin and Growth Hormone. Insulin is secreted by the pancreas and is used to transport glucose to cells for use as energy.

Glucose is just the scientific term for blood sugar. If you're busy and active, most glucose is conveyed to provide power for your activity.

Any glucose that is left over is sent to adipose fat cells for storage. While body fat is important for other purposes, in this context, adipose tissue is best thought of as a means of energy storage. Body fat also plays a major role in insulation and hormone production.


Human Growth Hormone is also multifaceted, though its uses are primarily concerned with cellular metabolism. During development, our bodies produce large amounts of Human Growth Hormone to facilitate growth.

When children have Growth Hormone Deficiency, they fail to reach the height and size of their peers. After puberty, surging HGH Levels abate, and Growth Hormone Production falls to a level that encourages optimal wellness without leading to further growth.

Insulin and Growth Hormone Work Together to Provide Energy

In many ways, HGH works in counterbalance to Insulin. Insulin is integral to the storage of fat, whereas Human Growth Hormone helps release the energy captured in fat. When calories from the diet are readily available, the body will put those calories to use.

In between meals, or when activity levels exceed available free energy, the body releases HGH as a means to release the energy stored as body fat. Growth Hormone and Insulin work together to make sure that the body has energy available at all times.

While Growth Hormone and Insulin work opposite one another with regard to blood sugar and body fat, they work together to provide energy to the muscles. Both Insulin and HGH provide the proteins in muscle with the fuel for activity.

Obesity Represents Imbalance of Growth Hormone and Insulin

When the two hormones are in ideal balance, energy needs are met, and body fat is relatively low. Obesity represents a situation where the balance between Growth Hormone and Insulin becomes out of balance.

One of the hormonal characteristics of Obesity is that Insulin Levels are elevated, and Growth Hormone Production is suppressed. This creates a problematic cycle that makes it harder to get rid of accumulated fat. Also, studies have shown that highly active people produce more Growth Hormone and Less Insulin.

Furthermore, the increased insulin levels associated with Obesity also increase the risk of Insulin Resistance, which is the precursor to diabetes.

Researchers hypothesize that measuring the ratio of Growth Hormone to Insulin may help doctors predict a patient's future risk of Obesity. If studies confirm this hypothesis, then it may be possible to modify hormone levels to help prevent the onset of Obesity.
