Personally speaking, I used GH after an operation and found that I had to have my stitches removed many days ahead of my appointment due to the super fast healing I experienced.

I donít think that GH therapy halts your own production, as a former user and friend to many that still do, I can attest to this. Although it May be wise to not take your dosage at night as this may negate the value of your own output, Iíd be inclined to take it in the morning, so as to get the extra benefit from my own output whist sleeping. There are lots of different opinions and I cant back that up with a paper. But if any one can point to a scientific paper that is clear on the subject (a lot of cr*p info out there) please do so as this is a subject Iím interested in as perhaps the LL community should be.


Hey Carl,A doctor actually told me it will shut down your natural GH production.How can you attest that it did not halt your natural production? Did you get tests done?

Hi Bruce,

There are clearly 2 schools of thought, 1 it does inhibit your own production and 2 it doesnít shut down your own production but I havenít as yet found any proof of either being wrong or right. Hereís an article that touches on it: http://jcem.endojournals.org/cgi/content/full/87/8/3573

Some GPís donít know much about hormones, I recall asking mine for a DHT test and he said they only do a Test count which he insisted was the same thing. Its clearly not the same thing so I went private to have the test done.

I donít have a paper to cite but I can tell you that from my personal experience I used it for 6 months, felt super amazing and then discontinued it all at once and felt no ill effects from withdrawal other than no longer being so superhuman week by week, until as normal. The guys that I know that use it also experience the same when they come off it.
Just as a note, I did develop carpel tunnel syndrome type symptoms whilst using it. It took about another 6 months for those symptoms to go away!

Now in comparison to 6 months of Testosterone use and then stopping cold turkey, your own production will normally shutdown and could take a real long time to kick back in naturally and you will feel the loss of your supplemental test and your own testes productions shut down i.e. feeling week, tired, shrunken balls, loss of sex drive etc... (although there are a couple of things that you could take such as HCG to prevent and kick it back in).

Please note, this is just my experience and I dont advocate the use of such supplements.

There are not 2 schools of thought. It does inhibit your own production and than it takes time for your GH levels to return to base line. That is a fact.

Joe,

It may well be a fact but as I previously mentioned I donít have any proof or studies to say either way, only my personal experience.

I think its important that you cite your reference or the link to substantiate that your claim is actual fact and so that we can learn and further understand its effects. Iím particularly interested as this may effect my next cycle of it.

No i think Carl is correct,HGH does shut down your natural production but it is not noticeable like it is with steroids.The Dr who told me 3 to 6 months was wrong.

One thing to also keep in mind about HGH...and cshotsky you can check me on this... is that the substance not only grows your bones but also your organs as well. I visited my local endocrinologist, Dr. Cushard, and asked him if he could help me grow taller. During the 20 minutes of berating me for being a spoiled brat (I was 19 when I first saw him and began this crazy height adventure), he explained that studies had been done one elderly people back in the 1980's to examine the healing and age defying effect of HGH (the same kind Carib noted with Stallone). Unfortunately, in this study, while the elderly subject's felt good at first, they did not grow and their internal organs grew and pressed against their long calcified rib cages, resulting in some deaths. So keep this in mind when you're considering HGH.

That would only really happen with excessive use,I am talking of using it during your LL period only for a faster recovery.

I just don't know why anyone would consider doing something so potential risky and unproven when a simple methods like LL are around.

I would never, ever take human growth hormones for this - what it will do to your organs and other parts of the body just isn't well enough understood!

I think that using HGH is a very personal decision and that as with most things people should do lots of their own research and try to make the best informed decisions they can.

Whilst commuting today I came across this really interesting topic in the free Metro paper.

There are certainly arguments for and against its use later on in life but if I was 69 and looked that good I'm not too sure I'd really worry about the possible side effect in 10 -15 or 20 years time. I can only imagine how this Dr's quality of life has been improved but as we already know, we can only speculate about its side effects.

Incredible. Thanks for sharing. I think I wouldn't worry much about side effects if I looked that good at 69. Many people don't even make it to that age!

Do you know if a doctor wil prescribe the growth hormone for my healthy 16 year old son who is 5'9" ?  ( I am 4' 11" and dad is 6' 1")  He is a football player that has so much talent and love for the game and really wants to play college ball.  Unfortunately as of now he is one of the shortest on the team and does not have much hope or reality of growing much more.  As a mother, I don't like "playing God", but I told him I would check it out and start researching it.  I figure if I can talk to a doctor about it and he would prescribe it then I might OK it.

I think you should immediately see a specialist and talk to him about the possibilities. This is not playing God. If it works, you're doing your son a huge, huge favor. Talk to a specialist, explain the reasons eloquently and try hard to make it happen. Again, if it does make him taller, you're giving him the gift of a lifetime.

Go to your GP and they will probably refer you to an Endocrinologist or help you themselves,if they agree with you (But i don't think they will). Your son is 5`9 and 16,they usually start Humatrope for short kids much younger than your son,so it is probably too late,anyway he is not even short and i am not sure your average GP would take your explanation on why he needs it seriously.Saying that,i have heard stories about rich parents paying doctors to give their kids growth hormone,but i am not sure how accurate this is.

I think that doctors would only administer such treatments for children that are obviously below average height - your son is entirely normal and healthy at 5'9", so you may get some resistance from doctors.

He could easily grow another three inches by the time he is 21.

Short answer to your question (no pun intended) - no licensed pediatric (or adult) endocrinologist is going to prescribe HGH to a 5'9" son and if they did, and were discovered, they would lose their medical license. Don't even waste your time contacting them. The FDA only approves HGH use in non-deficient children for males that have a predicted height below 5'3". Now, you might find a Doc who would fudge for a kid who is going to be 5'4", but 5'9", no way in hell. Not only that, at 16 your son is probably done growing and HGH use is optimal preadolescent. Actually, you son's expected height ((Mom's height + 5 inches) + (Dad's Height)/2) was 5'8.5", so he grew to where his genetics took him.

yeah agreed. . Humatrope HGH stimulates the pituitary gland into increasing Human Growth Hormone output and boosting immune system function. . .

I remember a person telling me he grew about ~2 inches when he was 19/20 from HGH.  Went from 5'7 to 5'9, so the product very well does work.  I was looking into it for a long time.  Honestly, I wouldn't hesitate using it.  The only thing that drives me away is the legality and monetary issue.  Using HGH for a year could very well cost you around $30,000.  You could have a much better chance by doing LL instead with that money

However, using HGH will help your proportions.  So, not only do your legs grow, but so do your arms, hands, etc.
