Get tested!: Hi. What makes you think you need GH or an anabolic steroid? This does't sound legitimate at face value since you request GH OR an anabolic steroid (unrelated compounds targeting different metabolic pathways!). Illegitimate use makes it hard for everyone! Don't expect an honest & caring doctor to prescribe you drugs that can have seriously adverse effects on your health so you look pretty & buff! ...Read more
Hiya doc can I ask how genotropin (human growth hormone) is administrated. As a steroid user I am just starting to use it can you give me some tips to how much and how ofte?

Mother nature has a way of biting back at you when you abuse your body with unnatural substances. Taking steroids and growth hormone when you don't need it is simply wrong. If you can't see this, you are headed for big trouble later. ...Read more

It can be used to increase testicular volume, increase testosterone, or both. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have human growth hormone (hgh) or anabolic steroids ever been used to treat the symptoms of inclusion body myositis (ibm)? Why not?
With the guidance and supervision of a medical doctor , could it be safe for athletes to take anabolic steroids , human growth hormone , and epo?
Danger: I would not trust any physician who would give these products to a healthy 22 year old male. Testicles will shrink, the anatomy may change. Ones ability to father children in the future may be damaged. Diabetes and joint diseases may occur. The liver may be damaged. This is folly and dangerous and unwise. Please stop all hormones you are taking. Please. ...Read more

Yes: Growth hormone is important for the development of the bones of the face. Persons with growth hormone excess have characteristic facial features including coarsening of their facial features and enlargement of the jaw.

Children with untreated growth hormone deficiency often have a condition known as midface hypoplasia where the bones in the middle of the face do not develop to be as fully formed as children with normal growth hormone secretion. ...Read more
