HGH Therapy for Children of Short Stature

Over the past two decades HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Therapy has demonstrated its
success in aiding growth in children of short stature. Who are these children? They are
individuals who fall below the “fiftieth percentile” on the Growth Curve, the metric or measuring
tool we use to evaluate a child’s growth progression.

In 1997 HGH was synthesized in the laboratory, making it for the first time available to large
numbers of people. The first groups to receive the hormone were those children who failed to
grow or who were well within the parameters described above. With studies and data from
tracking those first individuals from over twenty-five years ago, we can see the hormone therapy
is beneficial. Sadly, when twins were discovered in families provided with HGH, it was
sometimes discovered that one twin was denied the therapy by parents for financial reasons.
The “child left behind” became unwillingly the “control” in an unofficial study whereas the
identical twin treated became the “subject receiving the therapy.”

Our experience at MetroMD demonstrates that children receiving HGH therapy often grow one
and half to two inches over a six to nine month period, usually over Spring and Summer. A
critical factor in those children approaching 17 and 18 years of age is the “Bone’s Growth
Plates.” Those are areas in the long bones which must remain open for the bones to lengthen.
As puberty ends and we approach 18 years of age, the growth plates close and our height is
fixed. There are exceptions to this observation in which more growth in height occurs as late as
age twenty but these are rare.

The HGH is administered in a pen form with a very small needle that delivers the correct
amount daily of HGH easily and without discomfort just under the skin. The experience is quite
different from that of receiving a vaccine or antibiotic injection and for that the children treated often smile and express their surprise at how little the injection hurt.

Testosterone to Enhance Libido

For over a hundred years Science has shown that replacement of the male hormone,
Testosterone, restores libido. Initially, it was discovered that synthetically produced male
hormone allowed children born without it to develop normally. When applied to adults, it was
found males responded with greater interest in social contacts and their libido increased by two
to three fold. Oddly, it was also found in the 1970’s that small amounts, a fraction of what is
necessary to restore libido in males, when given to females ALSO increased their libido even
more dramatically than in males.

Today in 2018 we know the dangers of overdosing patients on hormones and we take
precautions in both males and females to avoid misuse of these powerful substances.

Individuals in the mid thirties present from time to time with complaints of depression and loss of
libido. When blood tests reveal their levels of testosterone are “low” or “low normal” we are at
first surprised. Why is that? How is it possible to have such low levels in healthy young people,
we ask.

Stress and dietary fads create issues at all ages but, especially now, in urban settings we see
males young and old buying into the adds we see on billboards. The adds encourage us to look
like the models up there on the billboards and we fill pressured to compete in the urban
environment with images we are bombarded with every day. We forget those images have been
pixelated and airbrushed and modified to look the way they do. Within months of buying into the
“Look” voilà…we have a drop in testosterone and a loss of libido.

This phenomenon worsens when we add the pressure and stress of everyday work.
Competition and a drive to “get that part” in this or that production, “to get that promotion” or to
“get ahead of the guy we are competing with” — all make the stress levels higher. That stress
releases THE STRESS HORMONE — CORTISOL. That hormone has a direct effect on turning
all of our natural energy away from the ordinary tasks of making sex hormones like
testosterone. Instead, that energy goes to make “the fight or flight” hormone — adrenaline and
the necessary proteins and energy-sugars to help us to deal with the stress. So, stress is a big
contributor to “low T” and loss of libido in young people of both sexes.

MetroMD Offers PRP Therapy for Knees in Los Angeles

Over the years MetroMD has been on the forefront of regenerative medicine. We have developed some of the latest protocols in cellular medicine, hormone replacement therapy and much more. One of these protocols is using patients own platelets to restore knee injuries to normal function.

MetroMD offers PRP therapy for knees by isolating a specific layer of a patient’s own blood for regenerative use. Typically 7-21ml of blood is isolated and then it is placed in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP layer. Once this layer is obtained it can be placed on sites to stimulate regeneration.

Of these sites knees is one of the most targeted. Injuries such as meniscus tear, ACL, PCL, or MCL tears can be treated. PRP is injected directly into the area that is damaged. This then stimulates the area to heal and ultimately restores anatomy and function.

Typically, 3-6 treatments are needed to treat a patient. These treatments are each done one month apart. After every treatment, the patient’s tissue should continue to regenerate.

The Use of Human Growth Hormone in the Treatment of HIV

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the virus known to cause AIDS. This virus is typically contracted through exposure to the blood or semen of an infected individual. For years, doctors have tried to find a cure for this disease. While there is still no cure, there are a variety of treatments that can lessen the severity of the symptoms associated with HIV. In recent years, many hormone replacement therapy benefits have been found regarding the treatment of this virus. Here are some of the things you need to know about human growth hormone therapy and how it can help individuals with HIV.

A Reduction in the Development of HARS

HIV-associated adipose redistribution syndrome is a condition where the accumulation of excess fat and tissue forms in the stomach. This collection of fat and tissue can create unsightly pouches in the stomach and may lead to the loss of self-confidence. The hormone replacement therapy benefits in the treatment of this condition is undeniable. This therapy can significantly reduce the occurrence of HARS, which provides HIV patients with an improved body image, along with a number of other benefits.

Improving a Patient’s Immune System

While there are still a variety of studies still in process on the hormone replacement therapy benefits regarding an HIV patient’s immune system, the data looks promising. People with HIV have a difficult time fighting off common diseases due to a compromised immune system. In time, studies may show this type of hormone replacement therapy can be effective in giving an HIV patient’s immune system a much needed boost.

If you are curious about hormone replacement therapy benefits, contact us today. Our team will work hard to answer all of your questions.

3 Ways to Improve Menopause Symptoms

On average, women go through menopause around the age of 50. With this may come hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, depression, painful intercourse, forgetfulness, and vaginal dryness. Although the immediate effects are apparent, some women experience deficiencies leading to bone thinning. In order to improve sleep patterns, mood, sex drive, concentration, and more, women today are considering various types of hormone replacement therapies and other treatments that will help improve the effects of menopause. Here are just a few to consider:

Estrogen Replacement Therapy

During menopause, your estrogen significantly decreases. This can cause a lower a sex drive, fatigue, alter your metabolism, and even result in physical changes in your skin, breasts, etc. Estrogen replacement therapy can increase your energy, sex drive, improve lean body mass, and improve your overall health.

Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Progesterone is responsible for cortisol levels (or the stress hormone), sex hormones, maintaining mental clarity and healthy blood sugar, etc. During menopause, this important hormone decreases. By restoring balance, you can increase energy, sex drive, and see an overall improvement in your health.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

During menopause, you will experience laxity and some dryness in your vagina. NeuViVa is a vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses CO2 laser technology to promote mucosal regeneration and stimulate new collagen production. Then, the tissues can naturally thicken and restore volume. Patients will experience tighter vaginal walls, improved dryness, and improvement of overall vaginal feminine health.

If you have recently gone through menopause, you may want to consider these hormone replacement therapies or methods to restore your health and feel better day to day. To see which methods are right for you, schedule your consultation with our medical professionals at MetroMD in Hollywood, California today!
