The scariest part of middle age is the knowledge that you'll grow out of it!
Symptoms of Aging: The age related medical conditions common with middle aged persons.... & the same conditions that can severely alter a post middle aged person's life.
The symptoms associated with low endogenous hGH & the conditions associated with aging are similar & parallel.
Conditions associated with Aging
Thin skin and skin wrinkles.
Lessened Sexual performance. .
This Mayo Clinic report on the symptoms of Aging: What to expect as you get older is an extremely good read. Provides a list of Aging's symptoms .. with the whys.
A Harvard University study reports there's a gap of more than 30 years separating the Americans who live the longest & healthiest and those who are 6' under the soonest.
Combine the Greek words "presbys" (old) with the Greek word "opia" (vision) Presbyopia .. old vision.
As we age the lens of our eyes becomes less elastic & beginning in our mid 40s we lose the ability to focus at near distance.
"The goal of hormone replacement is to restore levels to those normally present for several decades during early adulthood. Safe levels at age 30 will remain safe when restored to that same level later in life. Adverse effects from hormone replacement result only from excessive doses ." ~ Elmer M. Cranton, MD
Long term medical research HAS BEEN COMPLETED regarding hormone replacement therapy & Aging
LOS ANGELES, May 04, 2005 (United Press International) -- People who are obese may be able to shake the weight with hormone-replacement therapy, University of California-Los Angeles research.
Report 2: There is a direct relationship between DNA damage & aging. Aging is driven by a build up of damaged DNA in cells. These findings unify 2 of the theories on aging.
Laura Niedernhofer, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Molecular Genetics, U of Pittsburg Medical School, reports, ".. how we respond to cellular DNA damage is determined by the HGH & Insulin pathways."
The rate of physical & mental decline we experience with aging is determined by cellular / DNA damage. Cellular / DNA damage we all accumulate over our lifetimes, but our response to that damage / repair of that damage is unique & individual.
This medical school study on DNA damage demonstrates positive repair is directly proportional to somatotroph (growth hormone) level.
Mayo Clinic, "These results document that growth hormone can help healthy older adults who have low levels of growth hormone regain some of their youth and vitality."
Colorado State University: "..frailty, muscle atrophy, relative obesity, increased frequency of fractures and disordered sleep. These clinical signs of aging are, without doubt, the manifestation of a very complex set of changes which involve, at least in part, the GH-axis (= growth hormone level)."
2007, Journal of Endocrinology. Growth hormone is critical to maintaining bone mass.
".. GH is able to modulate bone remodeling by directly influencing osteoblast-osteoclast cross-talk."
Edward M. Lichten, M.D.,P.C. "One of HGH’s most dramatic effects is on the connective tissue, muscle, and healing potential of the skeletal system."
The positive effect HGH has on bone mass is documented by bone scan.
