What’s the Difference Between Growth Hormone Therapy and HRT?

Growth hormone therapy and hormone replacement therapy (HRT): Both can revitalize adult men suffering from conditions like low libido, weight gain, difficulty losing weight, and even anxiety and depression. But there are differences between the benefits of growth hormone therapy and HRT.

Growth hormone therapy vs. HRT: What’s the difference?

Human growth hormone (HGH) supports childhood growth and helps maintain tissues and organs throughout life. HGH is produced by the pituitary gland—a pea-sized gland at the base of the brain. Around middle age, however, the pituitary gland begins to decrease the amount of growth hormone it produces.

Human growth hormone therapy can increase muscle mass and reduce the amount of body fat in healthy, older adults. But, this therapy has some side effects for men, including carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), increased resistance to insulin, swelling in the arms and legs (edema), muscle and joint pain, and enlargement of breast tissue.

If you’re considering growth hormone therapy in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Chicago, talk to SynergenX Health first. Instead of traditional growth hormone therapy, which, in addition to the abovementioned side effects, can be costly, we offer HGH peptide therapy. HGH peptides are NOT HGH, nor are they hormones. HGH peptides are proteins that stimulate the pituitary gland to produce higher levels of HGH naturally. Many men get the same benefits as HGH replacement, but without the risks of replacement.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on the other hand, is an effective form of treatment for Low Testosterone (Low T) in men, or other hormonal imbalances in women. HRT can help restore hormone levels to help you feel more energetic, have a healthy sex drive, better manage your weight and more.
