Human Growth Hormone (Hgh) Therapy
Dr. Howell evaluates patients for Growth Hormone Deficiency in his Baton Rouge office. This deficiency usually results from the destruction of normal pituitary and/or hypothalamic tissue from a tumor or surgical and/or radiation therapy.
Growth Hormone deficiency may be associated with significant changes in body composition, bone density, lipid metabolism, cardiovascular function and physical well-being. Additionally, individuals with decreased Growth Hormone levels may have affected sleep patterns and decreased immune system function.
Dr. Howell considers and may recommend HGH therapy for adults if, after adequate laboratory testing and appropriate evaluation an individual is diagnosed with HGH deficiency and he believes that the patient could benefit from HGH Replacement Therapy.
