Peptide Therapy
Ease the side effects of aging. 
Peptide Therapy Defy Medical 02
Peptide Therapy is designed to improve Human Growth Hormone (hGH) levels.

HGH levels decrease as adults get older, leading to symptoms that are often considered signs of aging:

  • Difficulty sleeping or sleeping soundly 
  • Changes in body composition, especially fat gain and loss of muscle mass
  • Memory and cognitive issues 
  • Loss of strength and tolerance for exercise
  • Slowed wound healing and tissue regeneration

Using peptides, we can encourage the body to produce more hGH which can help relieve unwanted symptoms and support fitness, fat loss, and recovery goals.

Access comprehensive blood testing to understand what’s happening in your body.

For hGH Peptide Therapy, we require blood tests that reveal how your body produces and utilizes hGH. This helps guide our medical staff in creating a customized protocol.

Defy Medical offers access to affordable lab testing as a benefit to our patients. You can order the Peptide Therapy panel alone, or in combination with other lab tests like the Men’s and Women’s Complete Wellness panels, which offer a more comprehensive health overview.

What are Peptides and hGH?
Peptides are made of amino acids and perform many functions.

Peptide Therapy uses hGH peptides, which affect Human Growth Hormone levels. HGH is responsible for growth and development. It also supports healing and recovery, cell regeneration, maintaining weight and physique, and much more. 

Peptide Therapy utilizes secretagogues, or peptides that trigger the release of hGH from the pituitary gland.
