I have been on this site to seek guidance for what my doctor though was a mild thyroid problem. However I believe my problem is another hormone imbalance because no thyroid meds ever worked for me (tried them all)
I noticed that for the past 2 yrs my growth hormone (GH) levels are always showing as 0.3 ng/mL. I have read that GH levels rise and fall sporadically throughout the day, so this value alone can't be used as a diagnosis. Therefore my doctor checks my IGF-1 levels too and my IGF-1 level is always 200 ng/mL.
My question is this: Is my GH level too low?
Could this be the reason for severe fatigue, concentrated belly fat, chronic insomnia, low mood, slow digestion, and metabolism? I have read that for men a normal range is <5 and for women <10. The fact that my GH level is always 0.3 no matter when they take blood is concerning. No doctor has taken this seriously. But at this point my life is falling apart and I have become severely depressed.
Does anyone know if my GH values are normal? Should they be higher? Does anyone else seek treatment for GH deficiency. I am 34 years old. Any help at all would be fine.
