HGH and Testosterone Therapy

The Correlation Between HGH and Testosterone Therapy Explained

In the medical realm of adult-onset hormone disorders, the simultaneous and progressive loss of two of the body’s most essential endocrine substances, testosterone and growth hormone, is not an unusual occurrence. Treating these two separate disorders through the use of both human growth hormone HGH and testosterone therapy simultaneously is also not unusual; and it is not only safe to do this, it often enhances the beneficial effects that both of these forms of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can provide to adults.

The onset of growth hormone deficiency during adulthood is typically accompanied by a specific set of symptoms, as is testosterone deficiency. Yet since some of the symptoms each disorder can be very similar to each other, this is where the close relationship between these two disorders can begin to cause some confusion. Both types of deficiency can cause the decline of your energy, stamina and emotional wellbeing; both can reduce cognitive function; both can make it difficult to lose the excess fat that has accumulated around your mid-section; and both can cause the loss of interest in sex. Testosterone deficiency will often directly affect a man’s ability to get and sustain and erection, which is one of its main symptoms; whereas having growth hormone deficiency alone is less likely to cause this problem.

Both of these hormone deficiencies can also lead to the loss of your muscle mass and bone density, so you can understand why HRT doctors might often have to have blood tests performed for Low T and growth hormone deficiency before they can determine whether to it is appropriate to prescribe HGH and testosterone therapy either together or separately for their patients. And since both adult males and females can develop symptoms related to testosterone and growth hormone loss, experienced hormone therapy doctors cannot automatically assume that a female patient’s symptoms are not being caused by what is commonly referred to, especially by men, as Low T.

So what is the best way to obtain clarity about which type of HRT you may need? Your most effective course of action is to contact a medical provider that specializes in the treatment of adult-onset hormone disorders, such as Nexel Medical.

How Doctors Treat Testosterone and Growth Hormone Deficiencies

How Doctors Treat Testosterone and Growth Hormone Deficiencies

While medically licensed and legally allowed to do so, not all doctors in the US provide treatment for hormone disorders such as Low T and growth hormone deficiency; in fact, it is for this reason that the way it has evolved for patients to get treated for these conditions is by seeing a hormone replacement medical specialist, an endocrinologist, or in the case of testosterone deficiency, an urologist. Over the last few decades, there has been substantial growth in the number of adult patients who are using online HRT providers like Nexel Medical for their HGH and testosterone therapy programs.

If you are wondering how that works we’ll be glad to explain, because it is a method that is very appealing to many people due to its simplicity and convenience. When you contact Nexel Medical, either by phone or by using the contact form on our website, one of our clinical advisors will be available to assist you by providing any information on HRT that you might need. If you have decided that you want to be tested for either or both of these types of deficiency, your advisor can schedule this for you and have it performed at a clinical testing lab in your location. A physical exam can also be scheduled for you locally and it is required if you want to qualify for either type of therapy.

The results of these procedures will be digitally communicated to your Nexel Medical doctor, who will also need to evaluate your symptoms and your medical history (this can be submitted to us using the form that we’ve provided on our website for this purpose, or your PCP can digitally transfer it to us). Once a diagnosis has been reached, you will receive a prescription for using a program of HGH replacement therapy, testosterone replacement therapy, or possibly both. Patients who are using HGH and testosterone therapy will be using injectable bio-identical human growth hormone since this is the only form of medical treatment that is used in treating growth hormone deficiency; and it is highly likely that they will be using injectable testosterone for their testosterone deficiency since it is the primary form of treatment that our doctors prescribe for Low T.

Our patients are able to order their prescribed medications online through Nexel Medical’s Internet-based pharmacy source, a fully licensed US pharmacy that provides them with prompt and secure delivery. Our entirely streamlined treatment process is designed to provide patients with unmatched convenience while ensuring them of effective and safe to use medical treatment for their hormonal imbalances.

Which Will Cost More to Use – HGH or Testosterone Therapy?

We would like to put to rest some of the rumors about the cost of HGH and testosterone therapy because some of them are so misleading that they could actually prevent people from receiving the medical treatment they require. Let’s start with two of the most common ones, one of which is that medical insurance never covers the cost of these treatments and the other, which is that it always does. Neither is true, because a patient’s medical insurance coverage for hormone replacement therapy of any kind is always going to be determined by the terms of their individual health care plan. This is why it is essential to check with your insurance representative to find out what is or is not going to be covered.

Another common rumor is that both of these treatments are so expensive that only people in the upper income brackets can afford to use them. This rumor is also not true because the use of injectable testosterone therapy is typically well under $200 monthly for your medications plus the cost of any blood tests that will be required. Injectable growth hormone therapy, which typically requires the use of daily treatments, can run higher than that but is rarely more than a few hundred dollars per month. Many US adults pay far more than this for some of their other prescription drugs.

In fairly weighing the cost of HGH and testosterone therapy, patients must also consider the value that they would attach to getting relief from their unhealthy and limiting symptoms. If your hormone deficiency, or deficiencies, have been preventing you from feeling your best, looking your best, or living your best lifestyle, then receiving corrective medical treatment for them could be an invaluable investment in yourself.
