What Kind of Doctor Will Prescribe Human Growth Hormone Injections?
Any medical doctor can write you a prescription for growth hormone injections. However, if you are over 35, and suffering from age-related HGH depletion, you should see a doctor who specializes in hormone replacement therapies for adults.
Prescription HGH is biologically identical to the growth hormone produced by your body, therefore it is the safest and most effective way to treat growth hormone deficiencies.
Prescriptions for HGH injections are very strictly regulated. Your doctor will need to take a complete medical history and physical exam, which will then be followed with a specialized blood test to check for your HGH level.
If you are suffering from growth hormone deficiency, or GHD, the safest and most effective treatment is a prescription for daily growth hormone injections. However, the only way to obtain a growth hormone injection kit, is with a prescription from a doctor.
Authentic growth hormone therapy is only administered via prescription HGH injections. You cannot get real growth hormone online, or order it from an ad in a magazine, or purchase HGH in a vitamin store. Legitimate HGH can only be obtained with a doctor’s prescription and is only give as a daily growth hormone injection.
The only way to obtain a growth hormone injection kit, is with a prescription from a doctor. Genuine HGH is only given as an injection. Before any doctor can give you a prescription for growth hormone injections, you must have your HGH levels tested.
Can Any Doctor Write a Prescription for Growth Hormone Injections?
Any medical doctor can write a prescription for growth hormone injections. Growth hormone deficiencies in children are almost always diagnosed and treated by an endocrinologist. Endocrinology is the medical practice that specializes in diseases or defects of the endocrine system. Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. Growth hormone deficiency in children is almost always related to some kind of disease, or genetic condition which has impaired pituitary function. GHD in children can be a very serious condition, and is best treated by getting a prescription for growth hormone injections from an endocrinologist or some other type of doctor who specializes in growth hormone therapies.
In adults, growth hormone deficiencies can sometimes be conditions that have continued from childhood, and just as in children, GHD in adults can also be caused by disease or injury to the pituitary gland. In either of these circumstances, it is best to get your prescription for growth hormone injections from an endocrinologist, who specializes in glandular diseases and conditions.
However there is another kind of adult onset GHD, which can be just as severe, but may not require a visit to an endocrinologist. Growth hormone levels naturally decline as you age. In men and women over 40, that decline often can lead to adult onset, or age-related growth hormone deficiency.
Again while any doctor can prescribe growth hormone injections, there are doctors like ours, who specialize in hormone replacement and age management, who focus on the effective use of HGH for optimal aging.
Growth hormone levels naturally decline as you age. In men and women over 40, that decline often can lead to adult onset, or age-related growth hormone deficiency.
How to Get a Prescription for Growth Hormone Injections
Growth hormone injections are produced by several licensed pharmaceutical companies. Like any prescription medication, your doctor cannot prescribe it without a legitimate reason. The FDA currently recognizes only two conditions of “medical need,” that require growth hormone injection therapy: one is for growth hormone deficiencies, and the other is for the “muscle wasting” that occurs in HIV/AIDS patients.
Before any doctor can give you a prescription for growth hormone injections, he or she must have your HGH levels tested. If the tests, which will be described in the next section, show that your HGH levels are lower than they should be for your height, weight and age, your doctor will be able to write you a prescription for growth hormone injections.
Prescription growth hormone injections come in injection kits that have everything included that you will need to give yourself your daily HGH injections. The HGH in your injection kit is made from recombinant DNA, and is an exact duplicate, on the chemical and molecular level, of the growth hormone produced by your pituitary gland.
What Tests Are Done Before a Doctor Prescribes Growth Hormone Injections?
If you are looking for the kind of doctor who can write you a prescription for growth hormone injections, chances are you are a man or woman between the ages of 35 and 65, who has started to feel the symptoms of adult onset growth hormone deficiency.
The signs of adult onset, or age-related growth hormone deficiency (GHD) include:
Weight gain, even when eating right and exercising
Fatigue and weakness
Sexual health issues
Foggy thinking or other cognitive issues
Reduced skin health
Once you find a growth hormone doctor who will evaluate your symptoms, that does not mean you will necessarily leave his or her office with a prescription for growth hormone injections.
Prescriptions for HGH injections are very strictly regulated. Your doctor will need to take a complete medical history and physical exam, which will then be followed with a specialized blood test to check for your HGH level. Since HGH levels change throughout the day, your doctor cannot simply draw blood, and test it for your HGH levels. This works for diagnosing other low hormone levels such as testosterone, but will not work to get an accurate picture for HGH.
To test for growth hormone deficiency, doctors use a growth hormone stimulation test. In this test, you are given a medication that induces your pituitary to release HGH. Once you take the medication, then your blood is tested to see if your body reacted properly to the introduction of the growth hormone stimulant.
Can I Buy Human Growth Injections Online?
You cannot buy actual growth hormone online. You can only obtain real human growth hormone with a doctor’s prescription, which then must be obtained from a licensed pharmacy, just like any other prescription medication. Any product being sold online, that can be purchased without a prescription, that claims to be “HGH,” or to contain HGH, or growth hormone, cannot by law, contain any human growth hormone. Furthermore, real growth hormone therapy is only prescribed as HGH daily injections. Any product that claims to contain HGH, or be HGH, that can be taken in any other way than an injection, is not real human growth hormone.
This having all been said, you may be able to work with a growth hormone clinic that can refer you to an online pharmacy that may fill your growth hormone injection prescription. However, understand that you will still have to go through the very same procedures of seeing a doctor, having your blood tested, and obtaining a prescription for a growth hormone injection kit, but, you may just be able to save a little money having your HGH prescription filled online.
It is very important that you understand this difference. While there may be the possibility of having your prescription for growth hormone injections filled online, you cannot, under any circumstances buy HGH online or anywhere else for that matter, without a doctor’s prescription.
If all of this is making it sound very difficult to obtain HGH injections, relax, it does not have to be. We are only saying that for your own health and safety, you should obtain your HGH injections from a qualified and legitimate source. If you are really in need of a prescription for growth hormone injections, our doctors and staff can actually make the process very easy for you!
