Hormones regulate most of the processes in the body, so even small variations (too much or too little) can cause significant effects. Defy Medical works with each patient individually to identify symptoms and review comprehensive blood work to find what’s really happening. Defy Medical determines the proper type of treatment, such as Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (GHRT).
Peptides are hormones that have an effect on the endocrine system, which sends chemical messages to regulate the body’s organs and tissues. They are synthesized in cells from amino acids and travel through blood to the body’s cells. Growth hormones (GH) or somatotropin are peptide hormones that stimulate growth, cell reproduction and cell regeneration.
Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (GHRT) is a regimen for treating physical and functional problems in people whose bodies, for one or more reasons, fail to produce adequate somatropin (also known as somatotropin, human growth hormone or hGH). During aging, there occurs a progressive decline of hGH production, which leads to a failure in maintaining essential aspects of bodily form and function needed for a healthy life of normal duration. Read more about GHRT.
Defy Medical offers several options that can be used for Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy, including recombinant Human Growth Hormone, Growth Hormone Secretagogues, GHRH, Ghrelin analogs, and peptide hormones.
