Human Growth Hormone (HGH) for Arthritis

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Treatment for Arthritis 

The major problem with arthritis care today is traditional medicine’s inability to promote effective cartilage regeneration in the presence of adult arthritis. With aging, people lose the ability to regenerate these tissues, possibly because of decreased levels of growth hormone.  Research has now proven that our cartilage cells have HGH receptors and that regrowth of these tissues is possible with HGH treatment.

HGH is now known to stimulate cell growth, reproduction and regeneration and increases insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) production by the liver. This IGF-1 promotes growth effects on almost every cell in the body, especially the skeletal muscle, cartilage and bone. 

Joint pain is the main parameter in evaluating the outcome of Arthritis therapy. Studies have shown a vast decrease in pain during and after HGH therapy.  The effects of HGH on inflammatory pain is through the indirect role of cortisol and IGF-1 which suppress the inflammatory process and prostaglandins that act as the pain mediator. 

Research done by Dunn revealed that angiogenesis found in the knee injected with recombinant human HGH played a role in cartilage regeneration. HGH is able to improve cartilage regeneration and provide a better outcome when compared to intra-articular injections of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). 

With prolonged HGH treatment cartilage in the arthritic joints will begin to regrow and thicken providing long term relief of pain and a regain of function in the affected joint.
