There are three parts to adult growth hormone deficiency:
- Changes in Body Composition – Fat, muscle and bone
- Changes in Blood Lipid Levels – Increased LDL cholesterol
- Changes in Psyche – Mood, anxiety, energy and libido
Some other common AGHD symptoms may include:
- Chronic fatigue and weakness
- Sleep issues
- Loss of libido
- Constant irritability
- Weight gain and muscle loss
- Lack of ambition and drive
- Slow wound healing
HGH helps build muscle and reduce fat, so the lack of this hormone can lead to noticeable body composition changes. HGH deficiency can result to increased fat under the skin and inside the abdomen. This type of fat, known as visceral fat, is what causes that “spare tire” belly.
Adult growth hormone deficiency creates visceral fat which is dangerous. Research has shown that this type of body fat can do serious damage to your blood vessels by accelerating aging. In turn, your risk of heart disease increases significantly. You’ll also start to notice fat accumulate in areas where it shouldn’t: your thighs and chin are common victims.
Adult growth hormone deficiency affects cholesterol levels. There are two types of cholesterol you should know about: LDL (“good cholesterol”) and HDL (“bad cholesterol”). Guess which one increases when your Hormone is low? HDL or bad cholesterol.
The most common HGH deficiency symptom that leads men and women to reach out to us is lack of energy. This energy loss then snowballs and affects other aspects of your life: sleep, concentration, mood – just to name a few. Although these symptoms can sometimes be related to other factors like genetics and stress, all too frequently it turns out to be an HGH imbalance.
