Entera Bio Files Patent Applications for Inventions that Optimize its Platform Technology for Oral Delivery of Large Molecule Therapeutics – Yahoo…

Entera Bio Ltd.

Inventions aim to improve bioavailability and reduce drug costs

Patent applications include optimized oral delivery of specific molecules for various indications

BOSTON and JERUSALEM, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entera Bio Ltd. (NASDAQ: ENTX), a leader in the development of orally delivered large molecule therapeutics, today announced that it recently filed multiple U.S. patent applications to further strengthen the Companys patent protection and support future developments.

These patent applications address an optimized platform technology intended to be utilized for future therapeutic applications. The modified platform has the potential for a higher bioavailability and lower cost of goods in comparison to competitive technologies used for the oral delivery of peptides. Additionally, the technology is designed to utilize only well-known and approved pharmaceutical excipients and, therefore, we believe it can simplify regulatory approval. In parallel with the platform technology patent, the Company filed several patent applications related to the oral delivery of specific molecules or families of molecules, including parathyroid hormone (PTH), glucagon-like peptide (GLP)-1, GLP-2, human growth hormone (hGH), and others, utilizing the newly optimized oral delivery platform for indications including osteoporosis, hypoparathyroidism, non-union bone fractures, short bowel syndrome, and GH deficiency, and others.

We believe Entera is at the forefront of innovating and improving the oral delivery of large molecule proteins. Weve filed a substantial number of new patent applications intended to fortify our robust intellectual property position as we evaluate engaging in additional strategic partnerships, stated Entera Chief Executive Officer, Spiros Jamas. We see opportunities with GLPs, orphan indications, and the extension of major categories of biologic drugs, which have the potential for oral delivery through Enteras platform. Concurrently, we are working on global partnering of our lead asset, EB613, as it moves toward a pivotal Phase 3 for the treatment of osteoporosis.

About Entera Bio

Entera is a leader in the development of orally delivered large molecule therapeutics for use in areas with significant unmet medical need where adoption of injectable therapies is limited due to cost, convenience and compliance challenges for patients. The Companys proprietary, oral drug delivery technology is designed to address the technical challenges of poor absorption, high variability, and the inability to deliver large molecules to the targeted location in the body through the use of a synthetic absorption enhancer to facilitate the absorption of large molecules, and protease inhibitors to prevent enzymatic degradation and support delivery to targeted tissues. The Companys most advanced product candidates, EB613 for the treatment of osteoporosis and EB612 for the treatment of hypoparathyroidism are in clinical development. The Company recently completed the phase 2 study for EB613. Entera also licenses its technology to biopharmaceutical companies for use with their proprietary compounds and, to date, has established a collaboration with Amgen Inc.

Jeff Bezos Not Taking HGH, Source

Lots of folks have jumped to the conclusion Jeff Bezos can only get the body we've now seen with the help of human growth hormones -- HGH -- but sources tell TMZ it's all B.S.

The photos of Jeff and girlfriend Lauren Sanchez made people crazy! They're all over St. Barts in the Caribbean ... him without a shirt and revealing a super-jacked bod.

The 57-year-old Amazon titan has been working out like crazy with celeb trainer Wes Okerson. We're told he was on a strict diet and exercise regimen for months.

That said, lots of folks on social media are pooh-poohing Bezos' transformation, chalking it up to HGH.

A source with direct knowledge scoffs at the allegation, telling us the HGH claim is 100% false.

The source insists this is all Jeff and no drugs or other artificial enhancements. A recent report from Page Six says Bezos' trainer is Wesley Okerson, who also apparently was in St. Barts at the same time as Jeff ... so you gotta imagine he's keeping him pumped up.

Lauren apparently like the results on Jeff too, recently posting a pic of the Amazon founder on a paddle board and a "Good job Wes!"

Bezos and Lauren have been ensconced in the Caribbean for more than a week, showing tons of PDA.

4 Easy Ways for Women to Boost Their HGH Levels – Woman’s World

If you love being a woman but get jealous of how quickly men lose weight, Harvard-trained womens health expert Sara Gottfried, MD, is here for you. Men have a lot more testosterone, which speeds fat burning. But there are simple strategies women can use to level the playing field, insists Dr. Gottfried, who dug into research on body chemistry as her own shape-up efforts floundered. Her most exciting discovery: the slimming power of an often-forgotten hormone called HGH.

Best known for making kids grow taller, HGH also aids adults in building muscle and burning fat. Levels naturally decline up to 50 percent by age 50, but bumping them up again with simple diet changes is surprisingly easy and effective. Women using Dr. Gottfrieds techniques shed up to 40 pounds in a month!

Though common weight-loss techniques may boost HGH, aggressive approaches are stressful for a womans body, and stress has a negative impact on HGH, cautions Dr. Gottfried, author of Women, Food, and Hormones (Buy from Amazon, $18.09).

Her solution? She used blood tests to track HGH as both she and her patients tried gentler options and was delighted to find that these methods can often reverse age-related HGH decline in mere weeks.

Try any (or all!) of the docs strategies, and studies show youll lose up to 18 times more weight than on typical plans!

Going semi-keto: Though scientists arent sure why, getting blood sugar under control is linked to 300 percent higher HGH. Thats part of what prompted Dr. Gottfried to try a classic keto diet, which lowers blood sugar and triggers the body to use stored fat as fuel. Her initial results werent great. Suspecting carb deprivation and lack of veggies were working against her, she created a regimen that allows unlimited carbs from non-starchy veggies and occasional doses of fiber-rich beans, root veggies, and fruit. Success! It helps women lose faster and feel better than they have in years, she promises. (See below for details.)

Adding power proteins: Our bodies use amino acids from protein to make HGH. Since its easier to extract amino acids from animal protein, women with a higher intake of foods like eggs, fish, and beef have been shown to have more HGH. Whey protein powder is particularly helpful at raising HGH, notes Dr. Gottfried. And studies show whey doubles fat burning, even in sedentary seniors. So its a great choice to power up smoothies.

Igniting belly fat: Turns out, letting more time elapse between our last meal of one day and our first meal the next signals the body to make more HGH, increasing levels up to 1,300 percent. Called intermittent fasting, the technique also seems to accelerate HGHs belly-burning power. One study even found that going longer between meals can make 35 percent of our belly fat disappear, just like that. And theres no need to do anything drastic. Dr. Gottfried sees great results when women simply eat in a 10-hour window, such as 8 am to 6 pm.

Walking the HGH way: A friend taught Dr. Gottfried about interval training, which basically tricks the body into thinking its gotten an intense and HGH-stimulating workout even when it hasnt. The idea is to do very fast walking or any intense exercise for 30 seconds followed by 90 seconds of moderate walking or rest. Repeat eight times, says Dr. Gottfried. The approach helped quickly raise her HGH by 53 percent.

To eat Dr. Gottfrieds way, aim for 10 servings of nonstarchy veggies daily. Include healthy fat and six to eight ounces of protein at each meal. Read labels and add up to 25 grams of carbs a day from sources like nuts and keto bread. Eat between 8amand 6pm; sip only water and unsweetened coffee or tea outside that window. After four weeks, add small amounts of beans, sweet potato, and fruit.

BREAKFAST: Spread low-carb toast, such as Base Culture brand (Buy from baseculture.com, $19.99), with avocado; add a cooked egg and low-carb toppings or seasonings.

LUNCH: Top salad with low-carb taco toppings like cooked ground meat, onion, and cheese; mix salsa and olive oil for dressing.

DINNER: Saut garlic, diced zucchini, tomato and seasoning in olive oil; serve with broiled salmon and cauliflower rice.

As with any new dietary regimen, its incredibly important to speak to your doctor before trying. A licensed physician or nutritionist will be able to offer you the best advice in terms of foods, intermittent fasting schedules, and more, based on the state of your current health.

Feds charge Texas therapist with doping Olympians – New York Post

Federal prosecutors charged a kinesiologist and naturopathic therapist from Texas on Wednesday with providing performance-enhancing drugs to athletes competing in the Tokyo Olympics, including a sprinter who was banned from the Games last summer.

Eric Lira, 41, of El Paso, is the first person charged under a federal anti-doping act signed into law in December 2020, the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York said in a press release.

Lira is charged with providing banned drugs, including human growth hormone and bacteriostatic (a masking agent), to the athletes, starting in November 2020. Among those was a track and field star, identified only as Athlete 1 in the federal complaint.

At a moment that the Olympic Games offered a poignant reminder of international connections in the midst of a global pandemic that had separated communities and counties for over a year Eric Lira schemed to debase the moment by peddling illegal drugs, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District Damian Williams said in a statement.

The promise of the Olympic Games is a global message of unification. Today, this office sends a strong message to those who would taint the Games and seek to profit from that corruption.

Athlete 1 was not identified, but federal prosecutors said the athlete was banned from running in the 100-meter semifinals at the Olympics.

Nigerian track star Blessing Okagbare, one of the favorites in the event, was banned from further competition after testing positive for HGH at the same time as Athlete 1.

Investigators said Lira got the drugs from Mexico and South America.

He is charged with one count each of international sports doping and misbranding conspiracy because prosecutors said the drugs were allegedly mislabeled to defraud and mislead authorities.

Lira lists himself as a managing member of Med Sports LLC, but is not licensed as a therapist in Texas, Florida or New York, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, Athlete 1 reached out to Lira on Nov. 17, 2020, and requested that Lira provide her with 4 vials or doses of honey, which federal investigators said is code for human growth hormone.

The request came months before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which were delayed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and were held in 2021 instead.

In a text message in April 2021, Lira allegedly told Athlete 1, I will send you the 2 honeys an [sic] 4 bac water, referring to bacteriostatic water, used to dilute injected medications, the complaint said.

In June 2021, Athlete 1 wrote Lira and told him, I just sent you $2,500, can you confirm it via Zelle? And also remember I told you [a second unnamed athlete] had hurt his hamstring, so anything that will help the hamstring really fast you can actually bring it as well, ok?

In another exchange, Athlete 1 wrote Lira about having just run the 100 meters in 10.63 seconds.

Eric my body feel so good, the athlete wrote. Whatever you did is working so well.

But Athlete 1 ran into trouble in July after testing positive, the feds said.

Call me urgently, the athlete messaged Lira on July 30, 2021. [T]hey said one of my result came out positive on HGH I dont understand.

According to the federal complaint, investigators also got tipped off about PEDs in the Jacksonville, Fla., home of a person referred to as Athlete 2 in July 2021, including a box of 100 hypodermic needles and IGF (insulin-like growth factor).

Lira faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. He was taken into custody Wednesday and was expected to be in Texas federal court later in the day.

Lira is charged with violating the Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act, which was signed into law on Dec. 4, 2020.

PED debate will decide this year’s MLB Hall of Fame class – New York Post

The 2022 Baseball Hall of Fame writers ballot might very well be the most fascinating and polarizing such referendum in the museums history. This week, ahead of the results being announced Jan. 25, The Posts Ken Davidoff will break down the many issues and debates in play before revealing his ballot.

Rule 5 used to be the Baseball Hall of Fame equivalent of a Brood X cicada, emerging every 17 years or so to prompt a discussion about a specific candidate and his foibles before disappearing once again.

Now, Rule 5 stands as ubiquitous as the mosquito. Thanks a lot, steroids.

Rule 5, in the Baseball Writers Association of Americas rules for election, reads, Voting shall be based upon the players record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played.

Its that integrity, sportsmanship and character trio (some overlap there) that has thrown the Hall into uncharted chaos, with this 2022 writers ballot set to close some doors while opening others. All those doors lead right back to illegal performance-enhancing drugs, the issue that has defined this process since Mark McGwire became eligible in 2007, many of his critics contending that he lacked those three overlapping qualities, and shows no hope of abating.

To the contrary, time has only muddied the matter, the games evolving rules on illegal performance-enhancing drugs creating subclasses of suspects. Consider that a certain tier of players headlined by Jeff Bagwell, Mike Piazza and Ivan Rodriguez overcame whispers of illegal PED usage due to a lack of evidence beyond the eye test (and the subsequent raised eyebrows) to gain the 75 percent support necessary for election.

Lets break down the other subclasses, none of which has hit that 75 percent threshold. Some players raised enough hell to gain entry into multiple groups; here, they have been assigned to the demographic that arguably damns them the most.

McGwire, when he joined the Cardinals coaching staff in 2010, admitted that he used steroids during his record-breaking home run (70) season in 1998. He didnt fare particularly well prior to that disclosure, topping out at 23.7 percent in 10 (doubts loomed about both the authenticity of his accomplishments and their worthiness) and did even worse in the subsequent six years, additionally coming up small in a Todays Game Era Committee tally.

Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens came aboard in 2013 and have seen their votes move in virtual lockstep Bonds hit a new high last year with 61.8 percent, Clemens with 61.6 percent for good reason: The two all-time greats both saw government agents capture their purported suppliers, although the feds nevertheless couldnt convict either legend. This year marks their last chance on the writers ballot.

Sammy Sosa, also on his last chance, peaked last year at 17 percent, a far cry from induction. He allegedly failed his 2003 survey test, yet its possible his most indicting moment occurred when he pretended to not speak English competently at the infamous 2005 Congressional hearings on illegal PEDs in baseball.

Gary Sheffield said in 2004 that he had unknowingly used the cream, an illegal PED manufactured by BALCO and given to him by Bonds during the 2001-02 offseason. He surged to 40.6 percent last year and has three years to go.

Andy Pettitte confirmed the Mitchell Reports findings that he used human growth hormone in 2002 and later acknowledged using it again in 2004, at which point players were tested for steroids but not HGH. He climbed to 13.7 percent last year, his third year on the ballot.

Rafael Palmeiro became the first high-profile casualty of the testing era, which began in 04, when a 2005 sample came back positive. He lasted only four years on the ballot, his 4.4 percent showing in 2014 falling below the 5 percent necessary to stay on the ballot.

When Manny Ramirez failed a test in 2011, it marked his third skirmish with illegal PEDs, as he reportedly tested positive in the 2003 survey and drew a suspension in 2009 for a non-analytical positive. This will be his sixth go-round on the ballot.

A non-analytical positive is a conviction with evidence not gleaned from the actual drug test. Thats how Major League Baseball nabbed Alex Rodriguez in 2013, courtesy of the text messages between him and Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch that Bosch provided and verified. A-Rod also admitted to using illegal PEDs with the Rangers from 2001 through 2003 and reportedly failed the 03 survey test. A-Rod is a debutant at this dance and has about 40 percent of public-ballot support as per Ryan Thibodaux.

David Ortiz put up most of his numbers in the testing era and never came back positive except during that 03 survey test, which was used as a baseline to determine whether discipline-infused testing was necessary (it was) and supposed to be anonymous. The slugger has asserted his innocence, and commissioner Rob Manfred has defended Ortiz as well, saying his result could have been a false positive. Ortiz, joining A-Rod as a ballot freshman, has started strong and could be elected in his first try, which would be a significant milestone for those linked to illegal PEDs.

Growth hormone – PubMed

Human growth hormone (hGH) is a proteohormone secreted by the pituitary gland. It acts through binding to the hGH receptor, inducing either direct effects or initiating the production of insulin-like growth-factor I (IGF-I), the most important mediator of hGH effects. Growth hormone is primarily known to promote longitudinal growth in children and adolescents, but has also various important metabolic functions throughout adult life. Effects of hGH on the adult organism are well established from studies with recombinant growth hormone (rhGH) therapy in growth hormone deficient subjects. In this particular group of patients, replacement of hGH leads to increased lipolysis and lean body mass, decreased fat mass, improvements in VO(2max), and maximal power output. Although extrapolation from these findings to the situation in well trained healthy subjects is impossible, and controlled studies in healthy subjects are scarce, abuse of hGH seems to be popular among athletes trying to enhance physical performance. Detection of the application of rhGH is difficult, especially because the amino acid sequence of rhGH is identical to the major 22,000 Da isoform of hGH normally secreted by the pituitary. Furthermore, some physiological properties of hGH secretion also hindered the development of a doping test: secreted in a pulsatile manner, it has a very short half-life in circulation, which leads to highly variable serum levels. Concentration alone therefore cannot prove the exogenous administration of hGH.Two approaches have independently been developed for the detection of hGH doping: The so-called "marker approach" investigates changes in hGH-dependent parameters like IGF-I or components of bone and collagen metabolism, which are increased after hGH injection. In contrast, the so-called "isoform approach" directly analyses the spectrum of molecular isoforms in circulation: the pituitary gland secretes a spectrum of homo- and heterodimers and - multimers of a variable spectrum of hGH isoforms, whereas rhGH consists of the monomeric 22,000 Da isoform only. This isoform therefore becomes predominant after injection of rhGH. Specific immunoassays with preference for the one or the other isoform allow analysis of the relative abundance of the 22,000 Da isoform. Application of rhGH can be proven when the ratio of this isoform relative to the others is increased above a certain threshold. Because the "marker method" and the "isoform method" have a different window of opportunity for detection, complementary use of both tests could be a way to increase the likelihood of detecting cheating athletes.

New Years Resolution to get in shape? Here’s Where To Start – Barstool Sports

1. The easiest thing you can do, drink a shit ton of water and drink a shit ton of green tea.

All you gotta do is drink water and throw a green tea bag in there. Check out this article I wrote if you want more info. This first step may get your engine going and give you the energy, libido, and push to make you go to the gym at the end of the day.

2.Stop drinking.

Yeah, this one sucks, but it works. Alcohol destroys your HGH secretion which is basically what determines how in shape you are and how you feel.

Getting enough rest is essential to building bigger and stronger muscles. However, because drinking alcohol negatively affects your sleep patterns, your body is robbed of a chemical called human growth hormone (HGH) when you drink.1 HGH plays an integral role in building and repairing muscles, but alcohol can decrease the secretion of HGH by as much as 70 percent. Additionally, binge drinking can reduce serum testosterone levels. Decreases in testosterone are associated with decreases in lean muscle mass and muscle recovery, which can impair performance.

Now I am not saying stop drinking altogether, I'm just saying there are a couple of great alternatives to alcohol if you are habitually using it to chill out like l-theanine which is an awesome amino acid. Reducing alcohol consumption on the weekends would also be huge. In the studies of Liverking, he only drinks watered down Everclear which might be a move!

3. Find realistic opportunities to workout

For most people, finding time to work out is really hard. Your daily schedule does not necessarily allow for 30 minutes workout, you gotta get where you can. That's incorporating pushups and air squats in times where your shower is warming up or just taking the stairs. There are tons of places where you can get burn during the day, walk up the stairs, do the small little things to get into shape. These are the sustainable life choices that dont require you to buy a gym membership you won't use past February.

4. Practice Better Sleep Hygiene

I have been doing a ton of research on this. As a blogger, I look at a ton of screens every day, that lighting apparently fucks up my internal clock, which fucks up my hormone secretion that harms sleep. Now when it disrupts your sleep you end up with huge decreases in melatonin, HGH, all sorts of hormones that help your energy and health throughout the day. There's been tons of research on how looking at screens late at night can fuck up your whole system. I am not trying to sell you anything but blue light glasses would be a huge move if you have to work on the computer late at night. I can tell screens are a huge issue because legitimately when I wake up in the morning I turn my brightness up and go on my phone to help me wake up.

5. Stop Eating Like Shit, Dont eat breakfast.

This is easy to say hard to do. I am not going to give you a diet plan but easy quick fixes that can get you on track. Something I have been doing to cut calories I dont need working a sedentary job is straight-up dont eat breakfast. I take a bunch of supplements in the morning almost to act like a meal but they have little caloric value and kinda curb the hunger a little bit. Taking a handful of stuff like fish oil, creatine, theanine, b-12 vitamins etc. Can curb your appetite if mixed with a ton of water. If you want a list of supplements check out the Mintzy project.

Btw the Mintzy project is getting revamped January 1st he just has been traveling so much I haven't been able to get a hold of him.

6. Get Addicted to Workout Endorphins

This is the only way you are actually going to end up in killer shape. You have to get addicted to the endorphins. Hopefully, these small changes in your lifestyle will get your body into an anabolic state that will give you tons more energy and feel-good chemicals. Once your dopamine is jacked up you might start to take that extra step and wake up early to go to the gym every day. The huge component of that is healthy sleep. If you reach deeper sleep patterns you do not have to sleep for as long and feel more refreshed in the morning.

7. Schedule a Fight with Jose Canseco

Last year I had tons of motivation to work out because I had to train to fight Jose Canseco. That was literally the best way to wake up on January first and train hard as fuck and get in shape. Not all of us have that opportunity I am lucky. But Jesus that's a wake-up call to get in shape. Boxing workouts were the best for shedding fat and shocking your central nervous system into knowing it was changed or die. When you basically have to do basically wind sprints with your arms and do serious high-intensity movements for extended periods of time. If you are looking for the most efficient workouts for not putting on muscle but just getting in shape, fat-burning as many calories as you can, pick up boxing conditioning. Not necessarily strapping gloves on and hitting a bag, but the way boxers condition is the best way to get in shape. That's jumping rope, burpees, running stairs, wind sprints. Look into that type of workout. I can get a great workout by just getting the heart rate going and then extending it by jumping rope or hitting an ab wheel. Something to consider heading into the new year. At least you guys know I'm honest I could be jacked up on steroids and selling you supplements.

This is for everyone who missed last year.

Growth hormone injections: Uses and side effects

Hormones play a part in nearly every major body function, including growth. If the body does not produce enough, a person may need to have growth hormone injections.

Several glands in the body produce hormones, but health experts consider the pituitary to be the master control gland. Not only does it control other glands, but it also makes the hormone that triggers growth.

The pituitary gland is in the brain below the hypothalamus. It secretes hormones in response to chemical messages from the hypothalamus.

The human growth hormone (HGH) helps to influence height, as well as build bones and muscles in the body. It is crucial for processes involved in normal human growth and development.

Genetic factors can lead to a lack of growth hormone in children. Damage to the pituitary gland is a common cause of a deficiency in adults.

In this article, we look at the reasons to use HGH, the function of growth hormones, and possible side effects.

HGH is essential to growth, especially in children, but it is also involved in many other processes in the body, including bone density, muscle mass, and mood.

Different hormones control various body functions and processes, including growth and development, metabolism, sexual function and reproduction, and mood.

It helps process protein and increases fat breakdown to help provide the energy needed for tissue growth.

Growth hormone levels can change through the day, and physical activity plays a part.

Exercise and similar activities can cause the levels to rise naturally. Sleep, stress, and low blood sugar levels also increase growth hormone levels.

Even small changes in HGH levels affect the body.

Too little or too much growth hormone can cause significant growth problems. Too little HGH is one of the main causes of short stature and conditions such as dwarfism.

Some people use HGH because they believe it will build muscle, improve performance, or slow aging. However, the existing evidence does not support the use of HGH for these purposes.

Children with low levels of lack of growth hormone may or may not be smaller at birth. Growth problems may appear in time, for example, if they are smaller than their classmates and growing less than 2 inches a year.

Some children are unable to produce growth hormone when they are born and continue to have low levels throughout their life.

Symptoms of growth hormone deficiency in children are:

In some children, a lack of growth hormone is part of a genetic condition, but sometimes the cause of the deficiency is unknown.

In adults, a lack of growth hormone is often due to damage to the pituitary gland, which may be permanent. The damage could have occurred in childhood or adulthood.

Other causes include:

Problems in the pituitary with producing growth hormone are commonly due to a pituitary tumor.

The pituitary can be damaged by the tumor itself or by treatment such as surgery and radiotherapy.

In adults, a lack of HGH can cause a number of different problems including:

Growth hormone deficiency can also be a combination of one or more hormone deficiencies.

Some medical conditions may also benefit HGH treatment.

These include:

The most common treatment in both adults and children is growth hormone therapy using lab-developed HGH injections.

Doses occur several times per week or on a daily basis depending on how severe the deficiency is.Manufacturers designed the growth hormone to mimic the behavior of natural growth hormone in the body. It will be prescribed by a doctor.

HGH treatments can be self-administered or given by a doctor. Treatments are often given for several years. Patients will see their doctor every month or so to check their condition.

Blood tests will be carried out to see if extra growth hormone is needed and if treatments should be increased, decreased, or stopped. Cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and bone density will also be checked to see if they are healthy.

Taking growth hormone can affect the bodys response to insulin, which controls blood sugar levels. Growth hormone deficiency can also lead to high cholesterol and brittle bones if it is not treated.

Specific treatment for growth hormone deficiency depends on the person.

Doctors base this treatment on certain factors, such as:

The earlier the lack of growth hormone is treated in children, the better chance they have to grow to a near normal adult height.

Children can gain as many as 4 inches or more over the first 3 years of treatment. Another 3 inches or more can grow during the next 2 years.

Many adults have to take HGH treatment for the remainder of their life.

Anyone taking HGH will undergo regular monitoring to assess the safety and effectiveness of the hormone.

The goal of growth hormone treatments in adults and children is to restore energy, metabolism, and enhance body development or shape. It can help to reduce total body fat, especially around the belly.

HGH injections can also help to improve strength and exercise tolerance and reduce the risk of heart disease in those who lack growth hormone.

Many people experience an increase in overall quality of life.

Most people tolerate HGH injection treatments well with few problems.

However, possible side effects include:

Those who experience these symptoms or other problems should talk to their doctor. They can change the dose if necessary to help remedy the symptoms.

HGH injections are not recommended for people who have:

HGH can affect insulin usage in the body, so people with diabetes should monitor their blood sugar levels carefully.

Other treatments may be required depending on the cause of the HGH deficiency.

Surgery or radiation may be necessary to treat a tumor in the pituitary. Pituitary hormones may also have to be taken to correct a gland that is not working properly.

If the levels of HGH are too high in adults, they may experience:

Long-term use of HGH injections can cause a condition called acromegaly.

Adults cannot grow taller by using the synthetic growth hormone. High doses will thicken the persons bones instead of lengthening them.

People with acromegaly will experience an overgrowth of bones, particularly in the hands, feet, and face.

The skin area can also be affected and may turn thick, coarse, and hairy. The excess HGH levels can also lead to high blood pressure and heart disease.

HGH injections have also become popular for nonmedical usage. Bodybuildersgro and athletes sometimes use them in an effort to get larger muscles, more energy, and increased stamina.

They are considered performance-enhancing drugs and are banned in professional sports.

HGH injections are also advertised as an anti-aging or weight loss treatment.

Many people aim to help increase their energy as well as fight the decrease in muscle and bone mass that happens with aging.

The Endocrine Society do not recommend HGH injections for adults or children unless they have a growth hormone deficiency.

Not enough evidence is available to prove that HGH injections can slow down the aging process, and studies show it does not improve athletic performance. Adverse effects often occur, especially fluid retention.

Using them for any nonmedical reason is illegal in the United States.

HGH injections are designed for adults or children who have a lack of growth hormone and should only be prescribed by a doctor.

Children and adults with low levels of growth hormone should ensure they have plenty of sleep, a balanced diet, regular exercise, and that they follow medical advice.
