At our anti-aging clinics, we understand that a decrease in Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels can lead to various side effects as women age, such as weight gain. That’s why we offer state-of-the-art Sermorelin HGH treatment for women at our various locations. Our treatment is non-invasive and works by stimulating your own pituitary gland to help produce more HGH on its own. Sermorelin is naturally occurring, unlike synthetic HGH therapy, making it best for your body.
With our treatment, you can expect to see physical, mental, and emotional improvements over time, such as weight loss, improved mood, increased energy, greater interest in sex, improvements in sleep, and increased memory and mental clarity.

What is Human Growth Hormone (HGH)?
Human Growth Hormone, also known as HGH, is a peptide hormone that plays a vital role in human development. It is produced by the pituitary gland and is responsible for growth stimulation, cellular reproduction and regeneration. As we age, the production of HGH decreases, which has led to the belief that it can restore youthfulness and vitality. However, it is important to note that achieving complete hormonal balance is necessary to experience the benefits of HGH.
What is HGH deficiency?
HGH deficiency, in which the body does not produce enough of the hormone, can occur at any stage in life. In children, it can cause slower growth patterns and symptoms such as short stature, increased abdominal fat, high cholesterol and delayed bone and tooth development. In adults, it can result in low energy, decreased muscle mass and strength, abdominal weight gain, high cholesterol, and dry, thinning skin. HGH deficiency can be diagnosed through a test at a physician’s office and can be caused by severe head injuries, tumors on the pituitary gland, or infections.
HGH in women
In women, HGH levels decline around middle age, which can lead to symptoms such as loss of lean body mass, increased fat around the stomach, trouble sleeping, loss of interest in sex, thin, sagging skin, and low energy. Low levels of HGH are also linked to decreased bone mass and a higher incidence of osteoporosis. While HGH is banned by the FDA and can only be legally prescribed for growth hormone deficiency and AIDS patients with wasting syndrome, it is important for women to understand the role it plays in their health as they age.
At our clinic, we specialize in Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and anti-aging for women. One important aspect of HRT is growth hormone (GH), which plays a vital role in metabolism, particularly in the use of fat and protein synthesis. Women have higher fat levels compared to men, making HGH even more crucial for them.
GH secretion is highest during the second half of the night, highlighting the importance of sleep in its release. Additionally, women secrete more GH than men, with levels decreasing after the age of 50 and significantly dropping after menopause. Factors such as Body Mass Index (BMI) and menopause can also affect GH levels.
Research has shown that there is a significant difference in growth hormone levels between men and women until the age of 50. However, after the age of 50, these levels become more similar. Additionally, hormonal changes during menopause can greatly impact growth hormone levels in women, with a reduction of around 80% in women aged 65.
The University of California has established that the normal range of growth hormone levels for adult women is between 1 to 14 ng/mL or 44 to 616 pmol/L. At our clinic, we can help monitor and regulate these levels to promote overall health and wellness.
If you suspect a deficiency in growth hormone, it is important to seek treatment from a specialized physician. Our clinic offers a range of diagnostic and treatment options for growth hormone deficiency in women, including personalized treatment plans.

What to expect during HGH therapy for women?
HGH treatment can bring about a number of positive changes in women’s body, including an increase in muscle mass and lean body mass, as well as a decrease in fat mass. Additionally, HGH therapy can lead to improved cholesterol levels and better overall cardiovascular health.
However, it is important to note that taking too much HGH can cause a condition called acromegaly, which can lead to insulin resistance, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal issues, and excessive growth. Our doctors are experts in HGH therapy and will determine the appropriate dosage for each individual patient.
It’s also important to note that taking high doses of HGH in adulthood may increase the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and other health issues.
The usual recommended dose for young women is 0.3mg daily and for older individuals is 0.1mg daily.
- Adult 18- 30 years: 0.4-0.5 mg/day,
- Adults 30-60 years: 0.2-0.3 mg/day,
- Adults over 60 years (or diabetics): 0.1-0.2 mg/day.
