Human Growth Hormone Testing
What helps you grow in height and strength from age five to 15? The answer is a hormone in our bodies called human growth hormone (HGH).
Even after our growth spurts are over, growth hormones keep us healthy and ensure our organs and bodies are functioning properly. Proper amounts of growth hormone in adults can have big payoffs, especially at the gym or on the field.
Growth hormone allows us to build muscle, burn fat, and maintain stamina during workouts.
Why test human growth hormone levels?
If you have concerns your child’s physical development and notice they don’t seem to be keeping up with their peers, consider discussing testing their growth hormone levels with a medical doctor.
The natural production of growth hormone slows down as we get older. It’s production in the pituitary gland can slow down over time, resulting in aging and other side effects.
Before you begin hormone therapy, it’s a good idea to get your growth hormone tested and review the results with your doctor. Your levels may be normal for your age, or they could indicate further tests are needed.
Test Smartly Labs can draw blood samples for the growth hormone test and provide you and your doctor with a reliable pathology report to review and discuss together.
