Is it bad to not aspirate when subq injecting? I'm using a genotropin (human growth hormone) goquick pen and there's no way to aspirate, what's the worst that can happen?

Is it bad to not aspirate when subq injecting? I'm using a genotropin (human growth hormone) goquick pen and there's no way to aspirate, what's the worst that can happen?

Not necessary: In general, the purpose of aspirating is to detect if the needle tip is in a blood vessel. If it is, the needle can be moved slightly to avoid an injection into the bloodstream. If you are using an injection technique of pinching the skin and underlying tissue (shown on Genotropin (human growth hormone) web site), the blood vessels will be compressed while injecting. That should prevent injection into the bloodstream. ...Read more

Human growth hormone, what's the truth behind hgh? Are there really injections for that, if so what are results /consequences of the injections?

GH deficiency: Hgh is available, but should only be used for gh deficiency, and only in youth. Trials with gh in adults have not proven any real functional benefit. If you are a 19 yo woman, you should be making lots of gh still, and should not need any more. Too much gh can stimulate "growth" where you don't want it, eg tumors. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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'.

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. ...Read more

What will happen if humatrope (human growth hormone) is frozen?

It may lose potency: I assume you are talking about Humatrope (human growth hormone) which has been mixed with water. Freezing may cause some of the GH to come out of solution when it is thawed and you may see white dust when you mix it. I don't think injecting it would be harmful but if it is just one vial or cartridge & you have extra, I would probably discard it to be on the safe side since if you use it you won't know how much is left ...Read more

What will happen if humatrope (human growth hormone) is frozen?

Not reported: Hi. I can tell you from the biochemistry standpoint, probably NOTHING will happen. Defrost it and use it, and it should be fine. Unlike heating (which irreversibly destroys proteins), proteins are generally very tolerant of freezing. But it hasn't been approved (or reported as far as I know). I'm sure it will not hurt you, and the GH should work just fine. ...Read more
