What Is the Protocol for HGH Therapy?
Before reading this page, the first thing to understand is that there is no “one-protocol-fits-all” when it comes to any hormone therapy. Be warned: if you are speaking to an organization offering you solid quotes before their doctors have had an opportunity to review your file details, you should be very wary. It doesn’t mean that they cannot obtain medication for you.
It simply implies your health is not at the forefront of that transaction. It’s most probable that all your communication is to that organization: a transaction. The protocol for HGH therapy is a delicate one that should be addressed on an individual basis. It’s not only the file details that help determine a patient’s dosing but also the patient’s lifestyle.
The protocol for HGH therapy may require daytime administration for some, while it’d be best to take it at night for other patients. Sometimes, depending on goals, the protocol for HGH therapy may require split dosages: more than one injection in one day. Your protocol for HGH therapy needs to be individualized based on your complete health history and file characteristics.
That being said, there are certain similarities from one protocol to the next, and certainly, there are some particular characteristics that all subcutaneous hGH protocols have in common. The following information is not to be used in substitution or with anything your prescribing physician has organized for you. The information below is only regarded as educational and generally suggestive regarding subcutaneous hGH therapy.
When you have been prescribed an hGH program, your doctor should explain to you the following:
- the areas where you will inject the medication
- exact time and day you should be administering your medicine
- how to handle and store the medication
- Information about needles and all pertinent supplies to properly and effectively administer your program.
Other important points to consider when on a physician-supervised protocol for HGH therapy:
- You must not eat food 90 minutes before or after your hGH administration. HGH impacts your insulin levels. Food does the same thing. Eating food near your hGH administration will surely null and void that injection.
- HGH should not be administered at least 6 hours before you go to bed for the day. Let’s use a more common 10 PM – 6 AM sleep cycle as an example only because the endocrine system is most active at night, as it is correlated to the circadian rhythm. When you go to bed for the day and enter REM sleep, your body uses that time to produce most of the natural GH production your physiology will benefit from. Administering hGH close to your bedtime will elevate your IGF-1 levels to the point where your body will not produce its own GH because it will recognize that your levels are significantly elevated already, thus restricting additional production.
Extended periods of this non-production due to interference by improperly organized and administered hGH medication will cause atrophy to the pituitary and manifest negatively in this subject’s future.
- HGH should be injected subcutaneously. Your best option is to administer HGH directly into fat. Injecting HGH into muscle will cause the medication to be hyper-metabolized. If you inject it into fat, it is processed much more slowly, extending the half-life of your administration. Conversely, if you inject HGH directly into your muscle, it is much more quickly metabolized and processed by the body, reducing its functionality/effectiveness time. Moreover, injecting directly into the muscle increases potential adverse side effects. Because so much ends up in the bloodstream in such a short period when it’s injected into the power, the body has too much to deal with, and the manifestations of an exaggerated protocol may surface.
- HGH should NEVER be administered on a 7-day protocol cycle. Unless you are suffering from an acute production deficiency of GH, where your pituitary is not producing any GH at all, your HGH protocol should include two or more days a week where there is no HGH administration to allow the pituitary to function normally, avoiding atrophy and future glandular issues.
Typically, What Dosage Would Somebody of My Height, Weight, and Age Be Prescribed for HGH Therapy?
Understanding that no one should generalize a program for you is imperative. Your prescribing physician must consider your file details, health history, and personal goals before structuring an hGH protocol, as we will do for you here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic.
Beyond that clarification, statistically:
- A person weighing between 100lbs -140lbs, between 4.5 – 5ft tall, would be prescribed .5IU’s of hGH daily for 3 – 5 consecutive days.
- A person weighing between 141lbs -165lbs, between 5 – 5.8ft tall, would be prescribed 1IU’s of HGH daily for 3 – 5 consecutive days.
- A person weighing between 166lbs -195lbs, between 5.5 – 6ft tall, would be prescribed 1.5IU’s of hGH daily for 3 – 5 consecutive days.
- A person weighing between 196lbs – more, between 5.5 – or taller, would typically be prescribed 2IU’s of HGH daily for 3 – 5 consecutive days.
Again, we reiterate that the details above are statistically depicted, and there is no chart on dosing an effective and safe protocol for HGH therapy. However, the above chart most accurately represents, statistically, what a patient of a certain height, age, and weight should expect to be prescribed for a safe and effective hGH therapy program.
How Important is the Regard for Pituitary Atrophy?
Understanding the issue of an atrophied pituitary gland is imperative to ever being on an hGH program. A mal-producing pituitary will certainly have its subject experiencing manifestations of premature aging. Remember, aging is a disease. HGH can help combat this disease and keep it at bay if properly proportioned and utilized.
The best thing any patient can do to combat atrophy of the pituitary, regardless of whether they are on HGH therapy or not, is Sermorelin therapy. Suppose a patient has been on HGH therapy for an extended period (over one straight year). In that case, they must consider stimulating their pituitary’s health by inciting production with an inducing secretagogue, such as Sermorelin. A three-month therapy of Sermorelin can recuperate a depleting pituitary due to improperly supervised or an exaggeratedly proportioned hGH protocol.
