Many residents of Houston are aware that as we age, our production of growth hormone declines; other factors that can affect the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH) include; diet, exercise, stress, other hormones and sleep. Symptoms of low HGH include a decrease in muscle mass, increased body fat, a decrease in bone density, cognitive impairment, hair loss, depression, dry skin, fatigue, increased triglycerides, insulin resistance and an impaired immune system.
If you are living in Houston and are experiencing the symptoms of aging and lower levels of growth hormone, it might be difficult for you to find a reputable healthcare provider that can prescribe HGH because human growth hormone is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drug that cannot be prescribed for off-label uses.
Chief Medical Officer
Dr. Leslie Mesen, our Chief Medical Officer is a US certified physician in Anti Aging Medicine and co-founder of Anti Aging & Wellness Clinic. He is board certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Under his direction, the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic has grown to four clinics in three countries; two clinics in Costa Rica, one clinic in Tijuana, Mexico and one clinic in Panama City, Panama.
According to the FDA, injectable HGH must be prescribed by a physician for approved medical conditions and all other uses are considered illegal. There are strict guidelines defining growth hormone deficiency. If you do not meet the strict guidelines, it is illegal for a healthcare practitioner to prescribed one of the many FDA approved growth hormone products.
Growth hormone production begins to decline in your 20’s and early 30’s resulting in decreased energy, reduced muscle mass, weight gain, dry skin, thinning hair, wrinkles and sexual dysfunction. However, these natural declines in HGH do not fulfill the FDAs strict definition of adult onset growth hormone deficiency making it difficult if not impossible to receive a physician prescription from a doctor in the United States.
