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.

If don't need, yes.: If you are an appropriate candidate for it, such as short stature syndrome, growth hormone deficiency from various causes, then it won't be hard on you. It will improve your short stature, and whatever goes with that, like how others see you, and therefore self-esteem. Oh, i'd the injections are what your thinking about, the needles for subcutaneous are so fine, barely feel it.
