Thank you for the information,

HGH will be helpful in those with a deficiency of this hormone.

Otherwise its benefit in healthy adults has been limited.

It may increase the muscle mass but not the strength.

There can be various side effects from it.

It can precipitate diabetes, heart disease, breast enlargement, muscle & bone pain, swelling of limbs etc.

I feel you should have your growth hormone level checked by doctor & if he finds a deficiency & recommends it then only you should start it.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
