Mild to moderate cerebellar vermian atrophy  in 51 year old female. Recent history of unsteadiness,  falls and connective tissue disorder ?

Grwth hormone generates growth of new cells and tissue (fact), even brain tissue. So, can long term use also help redvlop a 1sided atrophied testicle?

This limits the amount of contracture and use of the muscle, which leads to muscle wasting and atrophy. Also, you will not return the blood to your heart as effectively, as you rely on skeletal muscle to push the blood back to the heart (Venous insufficiency) ...Read more
