Can taking a type of human growth hormone cause infertility to where you will not be able to have kids?

Can taking a type of human growth hormone cause infertility to where you will not be able to have kids?

Not if for low HGH: If a person takes human growth hormone because that person is low in his growth hormone level, then he will become normal in his level. By being normal (while on hgh) his fertility should not be affected by the hgh. That means that whether or not he is fertile should be unrelated to the hgh. However, if he is taking extra hgh, making his levels much too high, then the consequences are uncertain.

Read that frequent rubbing or massaging legs and feet can cause release of human growth hormone and added growth in all ages. Any truth to the claims?

Read that frequent rubbing or massaging legs and feet can cause release of human growth hormone and added growth in all ages. Any truth to the claims?

No...: There has never been a published medical report that I have seen that demonstrates that massaging the legs has any effect of height - the growth plates close in the teen years and maximum height is achieved then. Frequent massages may make you feel better so you stand up more straight... giving the perception of being taller

Hgh: It increases the size of all organs. It's important during puberty for the grow of the bones. Some pituitary benign tumors may produce excessive amount causing gigantism (starting during puberal years) or acromegaly during adulthood. Hgh is used nowadays as anti aging medicine. It it is expensive and in inyectable form. It is still considered controversial to use it for that by some physicians.

How to increase human growth hormone naturally?

How to increase human growth hormone naturally?

No reason to: There is an immense amount of nonsense on the internet about human growth hormone. There are some bona fide reasons to use it, such as any premie with IUGR may benefit for catch-up growth and to attain a normal adult height. If a full grown man takes it, it may cause acromegaly (think of the James Bond "Jaws") because bones can't grow longer, just wider. An endocrinologist can evaluate if ok.

Is humatrope (human growth hormone) hard on you?

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.

How to increase the human growth hormone naturally?

Sleep well to grow: Growth hormone is released during sleep-so if you can get good quality sleep, that will help your body regulate it's own hormones. We call sleeping well-'sleep hygiene'. Also, before the invention of the electric light, diaries indicated we slept TEN hours a night on average, not just 8. Try keeping a sleep log to see if you're getting good enough sleep (running a sleep deficits means you are not)

How do human growth hormone injections work for growth?

Direct/indirect: Gh stimulates growth by different mechanisms. The one we most commonly refer to is when gh stimulates the production of igf-1 from the liver which mediates a lot of the body growth with the help of other proteins which are made in response to gh stimulation. Igf-1 is the main growth factor.
