Customer Question

My question is related to HGH for women. I know someone who is taking HGH and since taking HGH since April they have had overall improved well being including brain fog, weight management, better sleep patterns ... etc. I suffer also from brain fog, weight issues, loss of hair, and constant restlessness through the night -- can you give me more info regarding HGH? and can I request this from my doctor? I am 57 years old, I just had a complete physical and I am pretty healthy otherwise.

Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
I am sorry for your symptoms.
HGH will help if there is a deficiency of HGH in the body.
It needs to be determined by endocrinologist or doctor.
Empirical use of HGH would not help, rather can do harm.
Though, there are advertisements, I feel you should not use it without evaluation by your doctor.
You can find a good discussion on it in this link.
