Human Growth Hormone Test (HGH), and also known as Growth Hormone, is a hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland. Human Growth Hormone test is often used to evaluate a growth hormone deficiency that is causing slowed growth. It is also used to assess overall pituitary function as well as measuring replacement therapy. It can also be prescribed as an anti-ageing treatment in some cases. This hormone helps control growth and the chemical reactions in our bodies. Our body might make it in significant amounts or not at all.
The too high or too low level of HGH can lead to a variety of issues, like:
- Delayed puberty
- Bone weakness
If a person has any of these conditions, then the doctor may suggest a growth hormone stimulation test. The test only requires a blood sample. There are other hormones also that are produced by the pituitary gland, and that’s why it is called the “master gland”. And these hormones help control other hormones. It’s part of what’s called the endocrine system, which oversees many body functions. An adult may want to visit the doctor if he or she suspects symptoms like:
- Increase in body fat
- Low energy
- Less strength
- A decline in muscle mass
