How to Get a Prescription for HGH

Human growth hormone, or HGH, is one of your body’s most critical hormones. HGH is produced by your pituitary gland. As you can probably tell from the name, HGH is largely responsible for growth. However, HGH is vital to many other bodily processes.

HGH is primarily responsible for all the processes that allow you to grow from a child to an adult. Even as an adult, HGH plays a major role in your health and quality of life.

HGH replacement therapy is used to treat children and adults with a growth hormone deficiency, also known as GHD. All GHDs are treated with a prescription drug known as Somatotropin.

Somatotropin is a form of synthetic HGH that is made using human DNA. Since prescription HGH is made from human DNA, HGH injections are identical to the HGH produced by your own body.

What Is an HGH Prescription?

HGH or Somatotropin is often prescribed for children who fail to make normal growth milestones. HGH is also prescribed for the “muscle wasting” typical of age patients.

Even after we are fully grown, HGH continues to play a vital role in your overall well-being. Even though you need HGH throughout the course of your life, HGH levels decline as you age. This leads to what is known as “adult-onset” or “age-related” GHD.

Patients with age-related GHD will experience:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Sexual health issues
  • Bone and muscle loss
  • Mood swings and cognitive difficulties

HGH injections can be very beneficial for men or women suffering from age-related GHD. However, genuine HGH can only be obtained with a doctor’s prescription. In addition, real HGH is only available as injectable Somatotropin.

Any product you can buy without a prescription online, from a fitness magazine, or even on health food store shelves cannot contain any real HGH. HGH is only legally for sale in the United States with a doctor’s prescription.

Any product that is sold online that claims to be actual HGH or contains HGH is not only being sold illegally, it may also contain dangerous, even fatal, ingredients. As stated earlier, all legitimate prescription HGH sold in America is the drug called Somatotropin.

There are, however, different brands of Somatotropin available. Some of the most common brand names for HGH prescriptions include:

  • Genotropin
  • Omnitrope
  • Norditropin
  • Humatrope
  • Saizen

These are all some form of HGH. They vary mainly in their cost, available dosages, and delivery methods. Some use standard medical syringes, others use premeasured cartridge injection devices or injectable pens.

You will be prescribed the dose and delivery. Either way, your prescription HGH will come in a kit with everything you need to administer your HGH injections in the comfort of your own home.

What Are the Benefits of an HGH Prescription?

For men or women suffering from lower-than-normal HGH levels, prescription HGH injections can have many benefits.

Prescription HGH injections can:

  • Help you build lean muscle
  • Increase fat metabolism, and help you lose weight
  • Improved your energy and stamina
  • Improve your sex life by increasing your sex drive and enhancing your sexual performance
  • Provide more restful sleep
  • Improve memory and cognitive abilities

Who Needs an HGH Prescription?

Any man or woman between the ages of 35 and 65 who are feeling tired, depressed, and just not as vital as they once were or would like to be – can benefit from a prescription for HGH.

Here are some common signs that you could be suffering from an age-related growth hormone deficiency and could benefit from a prescription for HGH injections:

  • Muscle loss
  • Fat gain
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Poor quality sleep
  • Mental cloudiness
  • Cognitive problems
  • Sexual health issues
  • Poor skin health

But the only way to know for sure is to come in for an evaluation.

How Can I Get an HGH Prescription?

You cannot buy, or get a prescription for HGH without seeing a doctor. Before you are given a prescription for HGH, our doctors will take a complete medical history. That will be followed by an evaluation of your symptoms, and a full physical examination.

Then, if your doctor suspects you may be suffering from a growth hormone deficiency or imbalance, he or sure will have your HGH levels tested. If the results of your HGH blood test indicate your levels are below normal, then based on your symptoms and medical history, your doctor will prescribe a program of HGH injections.

Where Should I Get My Prescription for HGH?

Any licensed medical doctor can prescribe HGH. However, it is best that you get your HGH prescription from a doctor or facility, like Hormone Logics, that specializes in hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men and women.

If you are over 40, and your HGH level is low, chances are your levels of other critical hormones such as testosterone and thyroid hormones are also low and imbalanced.

We take a comprehensive and individualized approach to HRT that looks at all of your hormone levels and wellness concerns. This way, we can prescribe a hormone replacement program that could include other hormones, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes, in addition to an HGH prescription.

Tips for Finding the Best Doctor to Prescribe HGH

If you want to find the right kind of doctor to prescribe HGH, first look for a clinic that specializes in HRT. But even so, not all doctors who specialize in hormone replacement are alike. Here are some tips and question to ask when looking for a doctor who will prescribe HGH:

  • Look for doctors who offer a range of hormone therapies in addition to HGH.
  • Look for clinics with a proven track record in providing safe and effective that effective forms of hormone therapy.
  • Confirm that the doctor is trained in hormone therapy.
  • Do not pick a clinic only based on price. Like in anything, you get what you pay for. Do not pick an HRT doctor just because they advertise the lowest price for HGH or testosterone injections. Do not compromise your health just to save a few dollars.
  • Choose a doctor with testimonials from happy and successful patients.

However, if you are really looking for the best doctor or HRT clinic to prescribe your HGH, you need to look no further than Hormone Logics. We have a proven track record of treating hundreds of men and women just like you so that they can be the best they can be at any age!
