Growth Hormone

Just wanted to say that I inject myself with Growth hormone twice a day.

I had it when I was growing up, as I have a problem with my pituitary gland. When I was about 26 I took part in a study to see how it affects insulin levels (I think) and discovered that I nearly had osteoporosis. Five years of growth hormone and my spine is just below normal now.

Other side effects of not having enough as an adult include fatigue, depression, weight gain around the stomach, increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

For me, I don't feel massively different, as I have always had low levels. However, other people have found it changes their life and they are able to function normally again.

Good luck. Not everywhere funds it here, but by doing the trial, it was hard for the doctors to say no once I had been on it for a year with benefits.
