At Harpal Clinic, we can help you assess low Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels.

If HGH levels are low and your Harpal Clinic doctor thinks you’d benefit from some replacement, we may prescribe HGH on a case by case basis, as part of a wider treatment program to optimise your hormones for a full and active life.

What happens if you have a HGH deficiency?

If you have a Human Growth Hormone (HGH) deficiency, you may be noticing: 

  • Low energy
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty building muscle
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness and problems with cognition
  • Skin problems such as sagging and wrinkles
  • Body fat around the waist
  • Slow healing of injuries or wounds
  • Increased insulin resistance (symptoms include thirst, frequent urination, etc)
  • Increased cholesterol levels (which can cause a higher risk of cardiovascular disease)

What is HGH?

HGH (also known as somatropin) is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced in the pituitary gland, which is situated in the brain. It plays a major role in physical development and peaks in adolescence. When the hormone is released into the bloodstream, it promotes the growth and development of bones and muscles, and is really effective for recovery.

HGH deficiency symptoms overlap with the symptoms of other hormone imbalances. If you are experiencing a number of these symptoms, we can offer consultation with a hormone specialist, who will be able to conduct investigations, provide a diagnosis and, if necessary, treatment.

HGH therapy: The benefits

If you are deficient in HGH, hormone replacement therapy could provide many physical and mental benefits that noticeably increase your quality of life. HGH replacement has often been hailed as the ‘fountain of youth’. However, while this treatment (or any treatment) cannot prevent ageing, it can certainly help slow down the effects, helping you to look and feel more revitalised.

Benefits include:

  • Increased energy levels 
  • Better sleep quality
  • Aided fat loss and muscle increase
  • Improved libido and sexual function
  • Lower cholesterol especially ‘bad’ cholesterol LDL
  • Better mood and mental health
  • Increased mental acuity
  • Improved bone density
  • Rejuvenated skin 
  • Speeds up repair of injuries and wounds, especially orthopaedic and sports injuries

The results can be different for every patient. For example, if you have not experienced poor skin health as a symptom of HGH deficiency, you may not notice much of a difference in this area. However, all patients are likely to feel reinvigorated, stronger, more mentally healthy, generally invigorated, and more youthful.

Patients undergoing HGH replacement therapy will find that the results are cumulative over the course of the treatment. While positive effects are likely notable in the first three months of treatment, you will feel the benefits most fully once when hormone levels are restored, provided that the treatment plan has been followed and other medical conditions are not discovered that could interfere with the effectiveness of the therapy.

We understand the need to acquire further knowledge before committing to a full consultation. Our HGH preliminary assessment is a great way to understand your current situation without having to commit right away. It looks to determine if HGH is appropriate for you based on your current symptoms and blood test results.

What’s included in the HGH preliminary assessment?

Note: We do not charge extra for our in-clinic blood draw service and it is included in the cost.

HGH preliminary assessment

Your doctor’s report will explain your personalised scope for health optimisation, and whether HGH is suitable for you.

Note: This does not take the place of a full consultation and we cannot prescribe HGH without an initial consultation.

If deemed suitable, you will be able to book an appointment for a focussed or comprehensive consultation (depending on your needs) to formally assess you with an in-depth consultation, additional lab work (if required) and a detailed report.

Can I buy human growth hormone online?

You should always avoid purchasing hormones from internet retailers, or any retailer where a medical professional has not provided a prescription. Doing so may cause unwanted side effects and may even be dangerous to your health as there are many counterfeit drugs where the content cannot be easily ascertained. We cannot support non-pharma purchases of HGH. All of our supplies come from licensed UK pharmacies.

HGH is a hormone that should be administered by a medical professional with the necessary health checks and diagnosis prior to prescription.

Please note: We are not able to see any patients under the age of 18.
