Description

Growth Hormone (HGH) tests measure the levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. HGH, also known as somatotropin, is a naturally occurring hormone that helps regulate growth of the body, tissue maintenance and repair. It is also involved in the regulation of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. HGH testing is important in assessing and monitoring an individual’s health, as high or low levels can indicate the presence of certain diseases or health conditions. HGH testing can also be used to monitor therapeutic treatments for conditions such as diabetes or Growth Hormone Deficiency. This testing is important because it allows for early diagnosis and treatment of any conditions that could be caused by an imbalance of HGH levels in the body.
