Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Therapy is a treatment in which a person is given synthetic growth hormone to improve their levels of this hormone in the body. Growth hormone is naturally produced by the pituitary gland and is crucial for growth in children and adolescents. It also plays a significant role in adult metabolism.

HGH therapy is typically prescribed for children and adults who have a diagnosed deficiency in growth hormone due to a pituitary gland disorder or other medical conditions that affect growth and development. In children, this deficiency can result in short stature and delays in physical maturity. In adults, low levels of growth hormone can cause symptoms such as decreased muscle mass, increased body fat, decreased bone density, and lowered energy levels.

Human growth hormone is also sometimes used off-label for purposes other than treating growth hormone deficiency. For instance, some people use HGH in an attempt to slow down the aging process, increase muscle mass, or enhance athletic performance, though these uses are not approved by medical regulatory agencies like the FDA due to potential risks and a lack of proven benefits in these areas.

The administration of human growth hormone therapy is usually done through subcutaneous injections, and the dosage and duration depend on the individual's specific needs and the condition being treated. Like all medications, HGH therapy can have side effects, which may include joint and muscle pain, swelling, and an increased risk of diabetes and other health issues. Due to these risks, HGH therapy should only be used under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional.
