Low HGH: The origin of adult low HGH may be congenital or acquired. The most common cause of low HGH (representing two-thirds of cases) are pituitary and parasellar tumors, for 15% of cases, the cause is unknown, and about 20% of cases are from extrapituitary tumors, and 5% from infiltrative or inflammatory lesions. Also, as we age, the levels of HGH decrease.

Are you deficient?: Hi. If you're GH-deficient, I would suggest you try it. Most of my hypo pit patients like it and stay with it. Benefits include muscle mass/lean body mass/strength, bone health, sense of well being, energy level, endurance, etc. If you don't feel better, you can always stop taking it.

Dr. Luis Gonzalez-mendoza
Pediatric Endocrinology 42 years experience
HGH: Hgh stands for human growth hormone, not because it comes from humans, but because growth hormone is species specific, meaning human growth hormone will not have effects on for example horses or cows. Humatrope is one of the synthetic forms available of human growth hormone produced by lilly pharmaceutical.
