GH with TRT

Anyone out there use GH with their TRT? My IGF-1 levels are at the bottom end. I can’t find much information on whether or not it would be benefit me to try and pursue this maybe it would help with my fatigue issues. Looking for anyone with personal experience or knowledge of where to find some info. Thanks…

GH seems insanely expensive. my IGf was at 171, but once I fixed my T, E2, Vit D3, Cortisol, and ferritin, it jumped to 311.

what do you consider bottom end?

what are all of your other results?

Hey, Pure Chance.

Check it out. Much info you advised me on recently on a seperate thread is now being tested by a well respected MD.

You are spot on!

We too might be going down the GH route as well. I am not a rich man, so hopefully we can tweek my T, Cortisol and Vit D.

Thanks!

when you get thyroid and other hormone tuned up IGF will also come up as well. Just adding in vitamin D can increase igf-1. Low igf-1 is not a true indicator of gh out put but a 24 hour urine will confirm this only after all other variables are tuned up then gh is added.

I’ve always taken 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily but the Thyroid and a handful of other hormones that need to be checked while on TRT have just recently been brought to my attention by you Hardasnails. I’m looking forward to our consult. Just trying to get a feel of what might be working for others in my situation.

Thanks for the alternative. Cost isn’t really and issue because my insurance will cover the GH if I need it medically. I just want to know all possible things that could be a benefit to myself and what all I should ask to be tested when I visit Dr. O next week. I’m fed up with being tired and having 0 ability in the bed room 24/7. Thank God my girl has patience.

One needs to get all other things in order before GH other wise you can go backwards real fast. I have been there already and done that because my adrenals where not working properly and started GHRP’s and they crashed. SOme ghrp’s have to be careful with because they can stimulate other hormones if not careful. 5,000 ius is barely in many cases not going to get you up to the upper 80-90% of the range where the full hormonal effects of vitamin D are truly felt.

Can you give details of your experience with this ie. how you cycled it, dosage, results etc

2 months of igf1 lr3 did more for me then 6 months of GH @ 4-6 i.u. daily. Just an fyi. With hgh everyone is very different in their response.

The bottom line is that you need to be able to pay for things if you can get them prescribed. If the legally demanded tests in your jurisdiction cost $1000 and then if you then qualify for script, if you can’t pay for drug, the $1000 was a complete waste of time. The tests can go way beyond low IGF-1 levels.

Combine local laws and insurance companies and it can be a major mess.
