Does HGH Help Erectile Dysfunction

Human Growth Hormone Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

A decrease in sexual desire or performance can wreak havoc on even the best relationships. What often starts as a minor inconvenience can lead to much bigger problems, such as not feeling good enough or even divorce for some. However, a simple test to assess hormone levels in men and women could be the solution you did not know you needed.

What hormones regulate sexual desire?

The human body, for both men and women, is flooded with more than fifty hormones. Each hormone is secreted from a specific area of the body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy bodily functions. Hormones responsible for sexual desire and performance – testosterone and estrogen – are the primary hormones secreted from the endocrine system to regulate sex.

For men, during sexual arousal, the brain signals the body to increase hormone production while relaxing specific muscles to increase blood flow to the penis. In some cases, the body also produces too much cortisol and prolactin, which can lead to disturbed sexual desire or erectile dysfunction.

What is human growth hormone?

Growth hormones are naturally occurring hormones in the body that boost cellular regeneration and reproduction. In children, human growth hormones aid in growth spurts, healthy bone growth, and other crucial functions, while into adulthood they regulate blood glucose levels, heart function, and the body’s ability to metabolize sugars and fats. These hormones are released from the endocrine system – more specifically the pituitary gland – and help keep human tissues like the brain and sexual organs in healthy condition.

When the pituitary gland is damaged it often leads to a condition called hypopituitarism. This condition affects the production of one, multiple, or all hormones secreted from the pituitary gland.

When the body reaches deficient levels of human growth hormones, a person may experience:

  • Increased body fat
  • Heart disease
  • Weakened muscles and bones
  • Decreased libido or sexual desire

Because human growth hormones are released in bursts throughout the day, one blood test is not sufficient in diagnosing deficiencies. If your doctor suspects you are experiencing hypopituitarism, they will order a series of blood tests through HGH stimulation and suppression.

Human Growth Hormone Benefits

Human growth hormones are used in synthetic form to treat certain conditions like human growth hormone deficiency or even erectile dysfunction in men. There are many benifits of hgh use under the supervision of your primary provider including:

Advanced weight loss

A person experiencing human growth hormone deficiency is more likely to be obese as these are key fat-burning hormones. Synthetic human growth hormones injected into the body stimulate the process of burning fats and oils through lipolysis, resulting in an increased loss of body fat throughout the body and advanced weight loss.

Enhanced muscle growth

Collagen, a naturally produced hormone in the body, is essentially the glue holding the framework of your body together. As you age, the body produces less and less collagen, resulting in skin wrinkling, a loss of bone density, and muscle weakness. HGH treatment boosts the production of collagen, in turn strengthening tendons and increasing muscle mass, helping you to look and feel better.

Stronger bones

Bone loss or osteoporosis is more prevalent among older adults, especially women, due to a decrease in crucial hormones responsible for maintaining bone health. Human growth hormones help to prevent the onset of osteoporosis by strengthening bones and can even help heal a broken bone, fracture, or other bone injuries quicker.

Improved sleep

Sleep is crucial for the human body and without it, many areas, including our health, suffer. Human growth hormones are released throughout the day in bursts and during the night these bursts are released during deep sleep – the main sleep stage responsible for rejuvenating sleep. When the body experiences an HGH deficiency, sleep is one of the many things that can be adversely affected.

Improved sexual desire
Human growth hormones play a critical role in regulating sexual desire. While HGH treatment is not a cure for erectile dysfunction, it improves sexual desire and performance by boosting natural HGH levels, increasing testosterone, and improving conditions linked to erectile dysfunction like obesity and diabetes.
