Growth Hormone( GH) tests are known as blood tests that work predominately to examine if your body is making an adequate level of GH ( growth hormone). GH is a substance that commands your body’s growth. It also aids in supervising metabolism ( The process of how the body uses food and energy effectively). Growth hormone is made in the pituitary gland, a small organ at the base of the brain.
Also, in children, GH plays a crucial role in bone growth, the development of muscle mass, and height. However, in adults, GH affects both bone and muscle health. Thus, it is evident that if children or adults have too much or too little GH, it can lead to severe health complications in the body.
The percentage of GH in your blood varies throughout the day, depending on the diet you follow and the activity level you have. Thus, a growth hormone (GH) test not only helps to provide important information about GH levels but is also conducted to measure other substances, such as proteins and hormones, that are directly related to GH production. Hence, undergoing a growth hormone blood test not only lets you know about the complications you are facing in your body but also helps you stay healthy for a longer period of time.
