High Cost of Living on HGH Therapy

Many families throughout the United States struggle to afford to pay for prescription drugs. FDA approved ‘name-brand’ prescription medications in the USA are 2, 3, or 4 times the price than in other countries.

A new startup company claims to be the answer and was recently interviewed on CNBC. A founding member of the company EQRx states that his company is going to disrupt the pharmaceutical space and help reduce the price of prescription drugs in the USA. Unfortunately, this won’t happen for at least another 5 years. 

Human Growth Hormone therapy and other FDA approved brand-name drugs are over-priced in the United States. Many of these same prescriptions can be purchased in Mexico, Costa Rica and other countries at 1/3 the price or even less TODAY.  

U.S. Drug Pricing CNBC w/ EQRx

Key Takeaways January 13, 2020 Interview JP Morgan Health Conf.:

  • CNBC interviews Alexis Borisy founder of EQRx. The company is founded with the purpose of lowering name-brand prescription drug prices in the USA.
  • Estimates 5 years or more, which takes us to the year 2025.
  • For HGH prescriptions, we offer the same advantage now at our treatment centers in Tijuana Mexico and San Jose Costa Rica

How HGH Prices Work in USA

Key Takeaways on why HGH is so expensive in the USA:

  • List prices set by Big-Pharma are artificially inflated due to middlemen taking so much of the profits. 
  • Drugmakers sell to distributors who work through Pharmacy Benefit Managers who negotiate rebates through insurance companies.
  • The purpose of Pharmacy Benefit Managers is to lower consumer drug prices, however, the extra layers of complexity have resulted in higher prices. 

Costs are lower with us because of our international options in Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama. We have board-certified physicians who can prescribe the same medications by the same manufacturers for 1/3 the price. 

How Much Does HGH Cost?

Average Monthly Cost of H.G.H. Injections - Table

USA HGH VS. Abroad EXAMS/LABS Average Monthly HGH costs
Norditropin Price in USA $570.00 initial exams $1,295.00 monthly (10MG Injection Pen)
Norditropin Price in Mexico $550.00 initial exams $450.00 monthly (10MG Injection Pen)
Norditropin Price in Costa Rica $550.00 initial exams $550.00 monthly (10MG Injection Pen)

Cost of HGH Therapy

Average Cost Per Month for Growth Hormone therapy really depends on where the patient gets their treatment. If patients get treated in the USA, they can expect to pay at the low end around $1,295 monthly for growth hormone therapy like Norditropin. It may even be more depending on the dosage required for the patient.

For the initial examination, comprehensive blood testing, and physician consultation, the initial visit will be $550-$570. Follow up labs are done to assure proper dosage, and then scheduled quarterly or twice a year depending on the treatment center. 

However, if that same patient were to get treated at one of our international treatment centers, they would most likely pay $450 to $550 per month for the same medication. Yes, the same Norditropin medication made by the same pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk

Treatment for human growth hormone deficiency at our anti-aging and wellness clinics are 1/3 the amount paid at a U.S. anti-aging treatment center. 

Cost of HGH Therapy per I.U. | As low as $15 per IU.

In Mexico, prescription Norditropin 10MG HGH injection pen with 30 IUs of treatment runs approximately $450 USD.

Review of Cenegenics Cost & Tests based on Media Reports

Cenegenics is one of the major age management providers many adults turn to for hormone replacement therapy, nutrition, and lifestyle modification.

Our Anti-Aging and Wellness treatment centers don’t always require the same level of testing to get into similar therapy programs. A comprehensive initial evaluation at one of our anti-aging clinics is around $550 USD. This includes lab testing and a full medical consultation. 

As of December of 2019, it still appears that Cenegenics requires an initiation fee of over $4,000 USD.

This includes various exotic tests like Vo2 Max, Dexa Scans for mineral bone density and body composition.

We typically only consider ordering these these tests for patients based on their risk assessment following a debrief of the patient’s medical history and health assessment. 

For instance, with modern innovations Vo2 Max can be estimated using smartwatches with reasonable accuracy (+/- 5% in some cases). If you’re not a top competitive athlete trying to improve this metric for performance purposes, you may find using an alternative VO2 estimation worthwhile.   

We take a similar position on DEXA scans for bone density and body fat composition. Depending on your gender and your age, along with family history, there are a number of other tests that can provide reasonable accuracy at much less patient cost. At least for the majority of patients without a clear risk of osteoporosis. 

Although DEXA scans are considered safe, they still emit x-ray energy. For more information, see the IAEA Radiation Protection of Patients During DEXA Scans.   

Our goal is to approach anti-aging and age management with simplicity. We also aim to provide an unbeatable value proposition for patients. 

We avoid unnecessary testing, yet we remain open to ordering these tests if an initial health assessment of the patient warrants it.

HGH Injection Cost

Historically, Norditropin growth hormone has been preferred among busy adult patients undergoing therapy. It is manufactured by Novo Nordisk, a global leader in pharmaceutical medications. It is not generic and it is FDA approved in the USA. Novo Nordisk is a global leader in diabetic and human growth hormone medications.

Pater Thiel Interview on Bloomberg Television

Tech billionaire and biotech-longevity investor Peter Thiel wants to live to or beyond 120 years. He eats a paleo diet, avoids sugars, and is taking human growth hormone treatment.

When should Treatment be Prescribed?

This video is a reasonable argument related to the replenishment of hormone replacement therapy in adults.

Dr. Klatz of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine discusses the modest and appropriate replenishment of HGH deficiencies just as one would do for thyroid, estrogen, testosterone or any other deficiency. 

Dr. Klatz discusses how it is a safe therapy and has been used safely for more than 50 years throughout the world. 

Hormones supplied are bio-identical. They are naturally occurring molecules. 

Sensible Arguments for HGH Replacement

Get an Anti-Age Blood Test In USA

Sometimes our patients prefer to get their blood tests done near their home at a Quest Diagnostics center instead of at one of our treatment centers. This can be done prior to your consultation with our doctors. 

The advantage of getting blood testing done at our treatment center is that you get the blood tests processed the same day. However, if in your case it is more convenient to get tested at a Quest Diagnostics center near your home prior to your medical consultation, then follow the instructions in the video on Lab Tests.

If will describe to you in detail on what our blood test screening looks for and how to order it online. The only drawback is it takes 5-10 days to get your results. Unfortunately, in the USA it takes a long time to process blood test results. At our treatment centers, you get results in 1 day. 

As long as you do not mind waiting 5-10 days for test results, use a Quest Diagnostics. If you would like your test results done on the same day of your visit, then have them done at one of our international treatment centers.

HGH Prescription Costs

US Senate Hearings on Drug Prices

Key Takeaways:

  • US spends more on prescriptions drugs than any other industrialized country
  • Medicine produced in USA actually cost more in USA than in Canada, France and Germany 
  • Taxpayer in US pays for most basic research through NIH

President Speech on Drug Prices

Key Takeaways:

  • Tougher negotiation for lower US prices
  • More competition
  • Eliminating the middleman
  • Reduce lobbying by “Big-Pharma” and Insurers
  • Remove incentives to encourage high prices
  • Ban gag-rule which prevents patients from knowing drug prices

The human growth hormone market is comprised of most major multinational pharmaceutical companies. At this writing, Norditropin is the global leader with 35% or greater market share. Second is Pfizer with roughly 21% market share. Others include Humatrope, Omnitrope, Saizen among others. Zomacton and Omnitrope are popular lower-cost brands growing in popularity in the United States due to the more competitive pricing. It will be interesting to watch how things unfold over the coming weeks, months and years as it relates to the average price for monthly treatment.

The Dr. Rudman study conducted in 1990 was one of the first major research studies conducted on aging adults with this kind of therapy.  Since the Rudman study, hundreds of studies have been conducted in animals and humans. However, the Rudman study did an excellent job of distilling the benefits in an easy to understand manner. Men from approximately 60-81 years old used these injections for 6 months. They observed no major body weight change, however, body composition improved significantly. Lean muscle increased by over 8% and fat decreased by more than 14%. Bone density increased and skin thickness increased as well. See Dr. Rudman HGH Study, New England Journal of Medicine.

Prices Under $450-$650 per month - Norditropin 10MG Blue Pen.

Most programs offered at Anti-Aging and Wellness which include growth hormone therapy range between $450 to $650 per month

We provide great alternatives to the high prescription fees related to therapy at Anti-Aging Clinics in the USA. If you are an existing patient of Cenegenics or NuMale age management programs, you can experience significant savings by switching to our comparable programs.   

You can avoid paying outrageous and inflated rates imposed by big pharmaceutical companies on U.S. residents.

Same medications. Same manufacturers.

Anti-Aging and Wellness treatment facilities offer medical services in a safe environment in leading medical tourist destinations with our board-certified doctors.

Our goal is to deliver exceptional concierge-level service for patients who may be unfamiliar with how medical tourism works.

Nearly 85% of our patients come to us from the U.S. and Canada.

Cenegenics’ Costs for similar therapies using the same medication by the same manufacturer is close to 3-times more than our programs in Tijuana and Costa Rica

Lower prices for Uninsured & Under-Insured

The rates for prescription medications continue to rise in the US. As of July 2019, it appears the US government is finally preparing to take on Big-Pharma’s inflated US prescription drug pricing policies.

Meanwhile, the economic situation for many Americans attracts them to exciting international tourism destinations such as Costa Rica, Mexico, and Panama.

The high cost of this kind of treatment in the United States limits most middle-class Americans access to high-quality hormone replacement therapy.  Wealthy entrepreneurs and celebrities routinely incorporate these injections into their own health and wellness lifestyle on a daily basis.

Insurance Qualifiers (unlikely)

Growth hormone therapy is rarely covered by medical insurance in the United States. In the mid to late 1990s, doping by sports athletes concerned US lawmakers and government regulators. Very strict guidelines on prescribing HGH were established to curtail doping abuses. 

About one-half of prescriptions are for children. Generally, this is for short stature, but some other rare diseases qualify as well. For adults, treatment is prescribed for three main purposes:

  1. Short bowel syndrome
  2. HGH deficiency due to pituitary tumors or their treatment
  3. Muscle-wasting disease occurring from HIV/AIDS

U.S. families’ young children diagnosed with idiopathic short stature (ISS) are discovering that it’s becoming a huge economic burden for them as well. More and more insurance companies are becoming stricter on what they permit for a child to qualify for treatment. 

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia published research in May of 2019 that parents are bear an increasing financial burden to get their children the therapy they deserve. See GH Financial Burden – Children’s Hospital.

Somatropin costs may appear lower at clinics substituting Sermorelin or Ipamorelin

Some clinics promote substitutes (peptides) like Sermorelin as real growth hormones, but these peptides (Sermorelin or Ipamorelin) are secretagogues – NOT recombinant human growth hormone.

Sermorelin and Ipamorelin typically won’t deliver similar results (especially in older adults). 

Standard HGH replacement therapy replenishes depleted growth hormone levels while sermorelin and ipamorelin try to stimulate the pituitary to endogenously produce more.

The older one is, the less likely sermorelin or ipamorelin treatment will work. At least that’s what we have seen in our practice. Delivering the actual hormone seems to work best for adult patients.

For many years, we’ve successfully treated thousands of patients at our international treatment centers.

HGH replacement therapy is legally prescribed and much more affordable internationally. In many cases, the savings are 60% or more. See our Tijuana Mexico – USA price comparison page.

In a 2013 Media Report filed by CNN, Cenegenics costs for patients taking human growth hormone injections runs from $20,000-$30,000 annually.

Not all programs will cost patients $20K or 30K per year. It all depends on an individual patient’s therapy. 

To lower prescription costs, you need to look outside your own area and go to where the prices are lower. By simply traveling short distances, patients can save thousands of dollars on their prescriptions and refills.

Isn't Hormone Decline a Normal Part of Aging?

Many ask the question: “isn’t hormone decline just a normal part of the aging process?” The answer to this question isn’t that simple. Individuals age differently at the cellular level. Chronological age differs from epigenetic aging. How we age is much more under our control than previously thought.  

We must consider how our modern lifestyle influences the production of all our hormones, including growth hormone production. Many hormones are in an accelerated decline in our modern culture.  

Too many processed foods and insulin resistance can accelerate hormone disruption and chronic diseases. Many of us are living longer, but a healthy lifespan is shortened.

The modern diet consisting of too many processed foods and too many carbohydrates equates to a calorie-rich / nutrient-deficient diet resulting in poor blood glucose control and leads to insulin resistance and diabetes. This eventually leads to weight gain and metabolic dysfunction. 

Americans are overfed in calories while at the same time starving of vital nutrients.

What’s more, we have an obesity and diabetic epidemic.

This has never been seen at such a dramatic level ever in human history. Never has mankind eaten so many calories while depriving himself of important nutrients vital to health and longevity.

Our priority as a leading international anti-aging group is to help provide patients with key information on how, what, and when to apply modern evidenced-based lifestyle and nutrition modification to their lifestyle. ,

Lifestyle modification, along with hormone therapies, can help lead to improved body composition and a reduction in age-related disease health markers. 

We encourage patients to adopt the whole food diet and limit (or even eliminate) processed foods from their diet, especially sugar.

Hormone levels are also on the decline among the modern generation. In many cases, we see lower levels than normal in younger men. More so than in the past decades.

Testosterone levels of men observed in recent research reports appear much lower in modern times than in prior decades.

In one study, a decrease as much as 25%, or perhaps more in modern men than in the 1980s and 1990s.  Key male sex hormones seem to be declining more rapidly than prior generations.

Many believe it is likely another downstream side-effect brought on by the obesity epidemic and poor diet. Some also point to exposure to processed foods and factory-farming of animals leading to bioaccumulation of xenoestrogens and many other environmental toxins.

Poor eating habits, a high body mass index, an inverted hip-to-waist ratio, and exposure to environmental hormone mimickers such as xenoestrogens are all likely contributing to less than optimal hormone control and a natural balance.  

By replacing deficiencies in hormones, our aim is to help our patients’ bodies work more efficiently accelerating a return to a more natural and healthy metabolism. 

Get Hormone Levels Tested and Eat Whole Foods

Studies repeatedly show heart disease and cancers are avoidable in cultures that eat more whole foods and little or no highly refined processed foods.

We must concentrate on eating the right foods. They should be whole foods that are lower on the glycemic index. 

Examples of influences to hormone levels as we age include smoking, heavy alcohol use, exposure to pesticides, herbicides, fire retardants and other environmental chemicals known as the dirty dozen endocrine disruptors: [eBook Environmental Toxins download 18MB]. 

We help patients live healthier lives with lifestyle coaching and hormone optimization therapy. These therapies are often less than many realize. Our health is one of the most important investments we can make. 

Many high-end age management programs offered by national centers like Cenegenics and NuMale remain too costly for many. Especially if that includes the more expensive hormone therapies like growth hormone replacement. 

Additionally, these therapies can be difficult to get prescribed in the USA, due to regulatory hurdles and the reluctance of some doctors to prescribe hormone therapies to their patients. 

Those who are struggling with chronic diseases and metabolic syndrome can benefit from programs like ours. We combine targetted protocols that help accelerate results. Yet we base these protocols on the individual patient. Some may want more aggressive interventions, while others will prefer less. 

Types of Metabolic Wellness Interventions: 

  1. Hormone replacement therapy, including growth hormone.
  2. Time-restricted feeding, fasting-mimicking, ketogenic among others.
  3. Vitamin and nutrient supplementation (oral and/or I.V.). 
  4. Comprehensive blood testing of key biomarkers to benchmark and monitor healthy progress. 

Many of the interventions we use can help patients recover from the negative side-effects of chronic diseases more rapidly than thought. 

When treatment benefits are sought through HGH replacement therapy, patients can turn to us for proper testing and medically supervised oversight of treatment.

In many instances, patients can find Norditropin or Saizen HGH for 1/3 the USA price at our treatment centers. Same medications by the same manufacturers. 

See a demonstration of the HGH Pen called Norditropin below. It is the most convenient HGH delivery system on the market. 

Demonstration of Norditropin Pen 10MG Blue Pen

Note: HGH prescriptions are prescribed only when a patient’s symptoms and blood testing indicate a deficiency is present. Once treatment is prescribed, patients can buy human growth hormone prescriptions. Insurance rarely (if ever) covers HGH prescriptions.

Don’t Buy HGH Prescriptions from Online International Pharmacies

In the USA it is common to receive HGH prescriptions from licensed compounding pharmacies via overnight courier. In international markets, prescriptions should only be obtained from recognized pharmacies or those associated with our treatment centers. They should never be shipped to you from an unknown source. Many of these pharmacies are black-market and unregulated. 

We verify the pharmacies beforehand for each prescription, then have them ship it to the patient’s home or office via an overnight courier like FedEx, UPS or others, depending on the origin of treatment and geographic location.  

We generally prescribe Norditropin HGH internationally, which comes in a blue pen form factor. It contains 10MG of HGH, which is equivalent to 30IUs of HGH. Norditropin HGH is the most popular brand of HGH around the world, as well as the United States. One pen can last one month at 1.5 IU per injection 4 or 5 days per week.

Monthly HGH Plans starting as low as $550.
Initial Program Assessment $550.

FAQ for HGH and Schema 1.04

A typical month's supply will cost $450. The same HGH from the same manufacturer in the USA will cost 3 times more.

The leading brand of human growth hormone now in Mexico and the United States is Norditropin.

Norditropin is the only leading pharmaceutical brand of growth hormone that comes premixed.

It can go 14-21 days without refrigeration due to the proprietary preservation technology of Novo Nordisk.

HGH is three times or more in the United States than in many other countries. The main reasons for this are 1) pharmaceutical middlemen called "Pharmacy Benefit Managers" (PBMs) and the list-pricing strategies set by big-pharma companies.

Please see for more information on Pharmacy Benefit Managers work in the USA on our "why is HGH so expensive in the USA?" You can ask Google, Siri, or Alexa and our page will be at the top of the list.

We only prescribe name-brand "FDA Approved" pharmaceutical HGH from major manufacturers like Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, and Merck.

In the modern era with Google search and social media, these black market online internet pharmacies are rapidly exposed.

We use real doctors and we promote our doctors. You get to know them and they get to know you. They are professionals and they want you to be healthy so that you tell others about our services.

Unfortunately, the United States health care system is broken. It's too expensive for insurance to cover HGH treatments, so they've made it extremely difficult for patients to qualify. Metabolic health related to hormone decline with aging is not yet supported by the U.S. health care system.

Insurance companies developed more on serving acute injuries, such as serving the needs of patients suffering from acute injury either by accident or a chronic condition. Insurance companies are less enthusiastic about metabolic wellness related to hormone decline, insulin resistance, and obesity. This leads to accelerated age-related chronic diseases like heart attacks, cancers, diabetes, and strokes. To a large degree, it is the primary reason health care expenditures amount to over 17% of the US GDP.

We operate very openly on the internet and through promotional material like print media. We've advertised in Airline Flight Magazines, major Newspapers and on Television. We've been caring and treating medical tourists since 2013 from all over the United States and Canada.

We only prescribe the same FDA approved pharmaceutical HGH brands that you find in the United States. The only difference is the USA must pay 2 or 3 times the price. Why? Because of big pharma's global pricing models and the problematic insurance model which exists in the United States. Both Republicans and Democrats have demonized big pharma for its inflated pricing, but nothing ever seems to get resolved. 

Recently, some states have begun to take action. Utah recently passed "Right to Shop" legislation which allows its public employees to buy legally lower-cost prescription medications in Tijuana Mexico. Click the link. It is widely reported in some of the press. Other states are looking at similar legislation: . Mexico has very good control of their legal prescription drug programs. 

We work closely with only the leading pharmaceutical companies. The process has a complete and safe chain of custody when it comes to name-brand prescription pharmaceuticals. 

No, it is not illegal to use human growth hormone with your doctor's prescription.

HGH is an approved medication for certain medical conditions such as an HGH deficiency. It must be prescribed by your doctor.

Border patrol, as well as the FDA, require international travelers to carry their doctor's prescription and keep the medication in its original packaging.

HGH begins working almost immediately. Most long-term improvements are seen within 3-6 months.

Men given HGH from ages 61-81 were given HGH over a 6 month period. At the end of the six months, they had approximately 15% body fat loss, an 8.8% increase in lean muscle mass, and an increase in bone mineral density.

Most adults on our program range between 1-2 IU between 3-5 days per week.

Common protocols call for one daily injection each evening 5-days per week. However, some research shows similar benefits may be achieved from a less frequent dosing schedule of only 3 days per week.

Most adults on HGH replacement therapy will settle in between 1 and 2 IUs for each injection.

HGH is further enhanced by following an intermittent fasting protocol.

And for those who may be overweight and have some degree of insulin resistance, metformin may be prescribed. Berberine is also a good over-the-counter substitute.

Most individuals on a 3-day injection dose will see a slower degree of fat loss. But when combined with intermittent fasting, metformin, and/or berberine, results on fat loss will accelerate in most individuals.

A one month supply of prescription HGH in Costa Rica will cost approximately $550 USD per month for Norditropin Growth Hormone.

HGH in the United States generally is three times the amount in Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama.

Typical price for one month's supply of HGH at a U.S. pharmacy is approximately $1,250 USD.

Only name-brand (non-generic) versions of growth hormone are legal. Name-brand prescription medications are generally always 3 times more than in other countries because of the retail price set by large pharmaceutical companies and middle men known as Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs). See our video at the top of this page.

Yes. As long as you have a prescription. If you are traveling internationally you will want a letter from the doctor. We have all of the legal paperwork from the major manufacturers so if TSA or US Border Patrol is concerned, you can show them the information.

Keep in mind, according to the Center for Disease Control, most adults over 40 years of age are on 2 or more prescription medications. International travel would cease to function if you were not afforded the basic human right of crossing borders with your prescribed medications.

Always carry your prescription and your letter from the doctor to avoid confusing border professionals and TSA.

No. HGH is not an anti-aging medication. What HGH does is it supports the growth pathways in support of normal energy metabolism.

Growth hormone works closely with the regenerative growth cycle of your body. However, it is now much more understood that this energy state is not ideal 100% of the time.

In order for patients to see the best benefits related to anti-aging at the cellular level, they need to understand what the research on longevity and aging shows.

The body operates best with it goes through natural anabolism and catabolic states (i.e., feast and famine). This reproduces a growth, cleanse phase at the cellular level.

HGH used in combination with metformin, and DHEA, did show an age reversal in epigenetic markers. The research was published in 2019. It is linked to on this web page.

However, we think this study can be improved upon by mimicking some of the new research by Dr. Sinclair of Harvard and Dr. Valter Longo of USC. They both promote the benefits of triggering mechanisms that influence AMPK and mTOR. To key elements of the longevity pathways. They do this with time restricted feeding and in some instances metformin.

For some reason, many patients ask us if Hugh Jackman is on human growth hormone therapy. We are unsure why.

Hugh is definitely a 'Jacked-Man" and in excellent condition for his age. However, he has not been vocal about using human growth hormone like other Hollywood celebrities.

Many of us remember 'Rambo' Sylvester Stallone and Suzanne Somers promoting its use for energy and quality of life.

We are also noting billionaire technology and biotech investor Peter Thiel for his admission of taking human growth hormone on Bloomberg TV.

We try to address each one of these cases in various places on our web site. Our goal is to get information to the public so that they can make independent and informed decisions.

Currently, the United States loses over 600,000 people each year to cardiovascular disease. Another 590,0000 lives or more are lost to cancers.

Our health and our health care system is a mess. There are no cures for aging, but if you treat aging like its a disease, you will see the results in body composition, improved aging markers, and generally an overall sense of improved well-being.

Currently nearly 590,000 Americans die each year from some form of cancer. What doesn't give you cancer?

Probably one of the most associated element we would guess is related to cancer is poor energy metabolism.

One of the major reasons HGH is criticized for potentially promoting cancer in adults is that it increases IGF-1. Elevated IGF-1 is often associated with those with cancer. It's an insulin like growth factor, so for a tumor, it is simply assumed its going to feed growth.

To some extent, we agree. In an overfed, processed-food rich lifestyle, with poor glucose regulation, we think it is a reasonable fear people should have. But with that said, if you follow the recent works of researchers into aging and longevity like Dr. David Sinclair and Dr. Valter Longo, you learn that we need to be attentive to the AMPK/mTOR pathway.

If you go to our Metfomin Blog page, you can learn a little about this pathway as well as how metformin is being studied as an anti-aging drug because of its ability to regulate this pathway for those eating and living the standard American lifestyle.

Our goal is to help you understand as best you can what modern science is saying about this and its role in cancer. We are no longer living in the 1990s and this information is much better understood than ever before.

With that said, we recognize there is much more research required to draw any conclusions. What we can say is that cancer is a big problem in the world, especially the United States. Those who are in better shape, have a better body composition, and have excellent blood markers are less likely to get cancer. Our role as a medical treatment center is to help you achieve this goal. We want to see your risk factors for all these age-related metabolic diseases decline.

FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions About Growth Hormone

No, it is not illegal to use growth hormone with a prescription.

HGH is an approved medication for certain medical conditions such as a deficiency. It must be prescribed by your doctor. 

For adult growth hormone replacement therapy, most prescriptions fall into the range of 1IU to 2IUs, depending on the individual. 

Most doctors prescribe HGH 5-days per week and recommend that injections be done in the evening. 

Some research studies show that similar beneficial effects of HGH can be achieved on a 3-day per week protocol. This can save patients money, while not sacrificing the benefits of treatment.

Contact us for more information and we can send you information on the 3-day protocol.   

 

HGH begins working almost immediately. Most long-term improvements are seen within 3-6 months. 

Men given HGH from ages 61-81 were given HGH over a 6 month period. At the end of the six months, they had approximately 15% body fat loss, an 8.8% increase in lean muscle mass, and an increase in bone mineral density. 

The current rate for the Norditropin HGH Pen in Tijuana Mexico typically runs between $450 and 550.00 USD. 

The current rate for the Norditropin HGH Pen in Costa Rica typically runs $550.00 USD. 

The current rate for the Norditropin HGH Pen in the United States typically runs between $1300.00 – $1400.00 USD. 

Yes, with the proper paperwork and a prescription. You need a doctor’s prescription and a letter if your medication is outside its original package. The medication must be for personal use. The rule of thumb is approximately 90-days of treatment. The quantity of treatment will vary depending on the patient.

Please see our “Traveling with Prescription Medications” links at the bottom of this page. We link to the FDA’s information, Customs and Border Patrol, as well as the HGH letter our physicians will complete for your treatment when traveling abroad.

We get this question a lot from prospective patients looking to save on HGH therapy. No country is immune to fraud, not even the United States. With that said, this is a new world we live in today. With social media and the internet, more information is accessible to the public than ever before. 

We operate very openly on the internet and through promotional material like print media. We’ve advertised in American Way. We are a reputable medical tourism medical group trying to help Americans and Canadians be healthy. 

We only prescribe the same FDA approved pharmaceutical HGH brands that you find in the United States. The only difference is the USA must pay 2 or 3 times the price. Why? Because of big pharma’s global pricing models and the problematic insurance model which exists in the United States. Both Republicans and Democrats have demonized big pharma for this practice, but nothing ever gets done. 

Recently, some states have begun to take action. Utah recently passed “Right to Shop” legislation which allows its public employees to buy legally lower-cost prescription medications in Tijuana Mexico. Click the link. It is widely reported in some of the press. Other states are looking at similar legislation: <Right to Shop Medical Tourism>. Mexico has very good control of their legal prescription drug programs. 

We work closely with only the leading pharmaceutical companies. The process has a complete and safe chain of custody when it comes to name-brand prescription pharmaceuticals. 

There is no evidence HGH causes cancer. Sugar and the standard American diet of processed foods may have a much higher association with cancer than HGH. However, HGH is the master growth hormone. It should not be abused. If one has cancer, it would not be a good decision to promote growth. 

Fear mongering and demonization is not a solution to our epidemic of chronic disease. HGH, like any bioidentical natural hormone, is a tool. It must be used under the supervision of a medical professional. HGH should not be abused. It should be used to optimize deficiencies. 

For those on HGH therapy, most patients should embrace additional lifestyle changes as well. The human body does best when it experiences both anabolic (growth) and catabolic (loss) states regularly. Many health care professionals have only recently become aware of the need to go through brief periods of catabolism. Essentially this is a type of fasted state which helps induce cellular regeneration. 

Some of the topics we can discuss with patients include proper lifestyle and dieting which are anti-aging and anti-cancer in theory. These include intermittent fasting, time-restricted eating, ketogenic dieting among many others. Since each of these have their pros and cons, we prefer to work with each patient individually to develop the best approach suitable to the patient. 

On PubMed you can find the study:

Growth hormone and the metabolic syndrome.

Research Centre for Endocrinology and Metabolism, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Göteborg, Sweden.

  1. Point 1:  The association of several risk factors including, obesity, dyslipoproteinemia, hepatic steatosis, insulin resistance and hypertension with Type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus and myocardial infarction has long been known and has been termed the “metabolic syndrome”.
  2. Point 2:  Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular morbidity is the mass of intraabdominal fat. Striking similarities exist between the metabolic syndrome and untreated growth hormone (GH) deficiency in adults.
  3. Point 3: The main association is abdominal/visceral obesity and insulin resistance. Other features common to both conditions are premature atherosclerosis and increased mortality from cardiovascular diseases. These similarities indicate that undetectable and low levels of GH may be of importance in the metabolic aberrations observed in both these conditions.
  4. Point 4: Nine months of GH treatment reduced their total body fat and resulted in a specific and a marked decrease in both abdominal subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue. Moreover, insulin sensitivity improved and serum concentrations of total cholesterol and triglyceride decreased. Diastolic blood pressure also decreased. The finding that GH replacement in men with abdominal obesity can diminish the negative metabolic consequences of visceral obesity suggests that low levels of this hormone are of importance for the metabolic aberrations associated with visceral/abdominal obesity.

It is important to note that there is also conflicting evidence regarding growth hormone and insulin resistance. But in recent years, a better understanding of metabolism, in general, helps us understand the flaws in prior conflicting studies with growth hormone and insulin resistance.

With more knowledge about intermittent fasting, ketogenic dieting, and fasting-mimicking dieting, and their role at successfully managing hyperglycemia, the role of carbohydrates and sugar metabolism is most likely more of a factor. By managing post-prandial glucose following meals using a $30 glucose meter, most can eat a whole food diet and limit carbohydrate intake at a level that prevents excessive glucose.

Dr. Jason Fung and others have elucidated this subject very well. See the following YouTube video for more information:

Jason Fung, MD:

The combination of proper dietary protocols with HGH is the way future research studies should be designed for reversing metabolic syndrome in patients. 

Many women are concerned HGH replacement therapy will cause them to become too muscular. We prescribe HGH replacement only within the normal physiological range. HGH is not a miracle drug that produces extreme muscle mass. If taken properly, there should be no major negative side-effects. 

When we prescribe HGH, we follow up with patients and do blood testing. The goal is to treat so levels are within the upper physiological range of the optimal zone.

The Dr. Rudman HGH study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that HGH helped improve body composition and muscle mass in aging men. The study looked at men from 61 years of age to 81 years. They were given HGH therapy for 6 months. After the 6 month period, the average muscle gained was 8.8%. Fatloss was almost 15%.

For years clinics were ridiculed for using the term anti-aging. Especially if there was any relationship to human growth hormone replacement therapy. HGH is not an anti-aging drug per se. Anti-Aging is not fully defined. 

Reversing chronological age is impossible. However, biological aging is different than chronological aging and there is much debate about what constitutes biological age. 

Scientists like Dr. David Sinclair of Harvard and others have repeatedly replicated longevity using animals. Most of these animals studied have very similar metabolic pathways as humans. 

More recently, HGH was involved in a small 2019 anti-aging study. The study was published claiming 1 year on HGH, metformin, and DHEA resulted in an average reduction in epigenetic age of 2-2.5 years. <HGH metformin DHEA Study pdf>

You may also be interested in the 1990 HGH research study by Dr. Rudman published in the New England Journal of Medicine. It looked at men from age 61-81 over 6-months on HGH therapy. This is what they found:

  1. Fatloss 14.4% (important for aging metabolism and longevity)
  2. Lean muscle mass increased by 8.8% (important for avoiding sarcopenia) 
  3. Bone density increased by 1.7% (important for the avoidance of osteoporosis, bone tissue damage, hips, knees, etc.)
  4. Skin thickness increase by 7.1% (Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles)

Yes. Norditropin is naturally the most popular brand. It comes prefilled in the No. 1 HGH delivery system and is the easiest and most convenient to use. Other brands we routinely prescribe are:

  1. Saizen by Merk.
  2. Humatrope by Eli Lilly.
  3. Omnitrope.
  4. Zomacton by Ferring.

Contact us for more information. We are indifferent since the medication inside all these versions of HGH is 100% bioidentical growth hormone. However, Norditropin offers the best delivery system. Learn more about the Norditropin NordiFlex Pen here: <NordiFlex Pen Information>.
