Insurance dependent : Most of our patients are limited by the contracts their insurance companies have with different gh drug companies. Fortunately, they're all about the same. Main differences may be in the injectable device. The endocrine nurse or doctor helping you choose will be very helpful in terms of explaining subtle differences between your available choices.

Many side effects: The reason hgh is regulated and only used for gh deficiency is because there is a temptation to give it for cosmetic reasons, and it can be dangerous. Google "acromegaly" to see effects of gh excess. Also, you don't always want "growth". Colon polyps, possibly other tumors, and the build up of coronary placque are among the growth effects you don't want. Whatever you're in to, you don't need it!
