Growth hormone deficiency in adults occurs when the body does not produce enough growth hormone to maintain the proper amounts of body fat, muscle and bone.

Symptoms

Reduced vitality and energy

Poor general health

Higher level of abdominal body fat

Anxiety and depression

Reduced strength

Treatments

Treatment involves daily growth hormone replacement shots (injections), which patients can administer themselves. They have been shown to reduce total body fat, increase muscle mass, and boost cardiac function – which can lead to improved physical fitness.

 In adults, Growth Hormone Deficiency commonly results from permanent damage to the pituitary gland.
