Cycle 2 – Module 3 – Lecture 2 : Growth hormone treatment

GH treatment in adults

+ In this invaluable session, all the information to master the science of administering GH to patients is presented, including the indications for GH treatment. GH is best administered daily with subcutaneous injections at physiological doses. How to inject, and how to start at lower GH doses are explained here.

+ The importance of a good follow-up is stressed with many pictures of adults before and after growth hormone treatment showing how GH changes the whole body appearance and specific areas, such as scalp hair, face, cheeks, lips, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, nails, abdomen, back, thighs, and feet.

+ In this section special focus is put on GH overdose signs that physicians must check to avoid the development of more persistent overdose tissue changes in the patient.

+ To optimize GH’s effects and levels, the major dietary adjustments (such as avoiding alcohol, and increasing meat & fish intake, for example), and how to adjust GH doses in case of stress, infection, arthritis, myocardial infarction, etc., are reviewed with the scientific data.

+ Also, the scientific evidence is reviewed that show how supplements of other hormones can increase or decrease GH and IGF-1 levels, and how GH treatment can imbalance other hormone systems, learning physicians practically how to overcome such imbalances.

GH fragments

A special section is devoted to GH fragments, fragments of the larger GH molecule that have specific actions such as fat reduction, without some of GH’s possible adverse effects on the sugar levels, for example. For the two most important ones, AOD9401 (GH fragment 176-191) and AOD9604 (GH fragment 177-191), doses, route of administration, effects on disease (obesity, osteoarthritis, etc.), safety, presence on WADA doping list, and other information is presented.
