Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

No, human growth hormone will not show up on a urine drug test. It is actually relatively difficult to test for human growth hormone, because human growth hormone is present to varying amounts, so testing has to look for more than simply whether human growth hormone is present. The only current method for testing is on blood, not urine. The blood test is used in certain athletic testing programs, but the urine test that will be done at this testing center will not be able to detect the human growth hormone.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
