HGH Dosage – Determining the Right Amount

HGH Dosage

When looking up what HGH dosage to use on the internet, the responses are most likely going to be from bodybuilding and muscle websites rather than medical clinics. The reason for this is that a doctor is not going to put a random listing for dosages on his or her website. To do so would not in the best interest of the patient. Some companies advertise using up to 4IU a day, or more, which can lead to serious side effects. You have to know medically what your body can handle safely.

Bodybuilding websites promote illegal use of HGH. When they advertise a specific HGH dosage for males, it is often fitness related and not for medical reasons. HGH is not to be used for sports enhancement or bodybuilding purposes. No legitimate doctor will write a prescription for this use of human growth hormones. It could lead to a penalty of $250,000 and up to five years in prison.

Determining the right dosage of HGH to prescribe is a complicated process. First, the doctor will run blood tests to check how much growth hormone a person makes per day. This uses the IGF-1 blood test to measure HGH levels. Next, a physical examination will provide crucial information, including age, height, weight, and percentage of fat that the doctor needs to calculate how much HGH a person’s body can handle without subjecting it to potential side effects. Finally, the hormone specialist will take a look at the individual’s medical history, illnesses, injuries, surgeries, treatments, and medications to ensure that there are no contraindications or factors that could interfere with HGH treatment. Only then can a legitimate prescription showing an accurate HGH dosage be provided.

Do Different Uses Require Alternate HGH Dosages?

We are often asked if there is one HGH dosage for fat loss and another that is used if physical enhancement such as getting rid of wrinkles and regrowing hair is the desire. That is not how HGH therapy works. Human growth hormone therapy is not prescribed for one particular thing, such as losing weight, improving memory, strengthening bone, or supporting immune system functions – although these are all benefits.

No protocol exists for a symptom specific HGH dosage. Anti-aging, libido boosting, and muscle increasing benefits all come from receiving a dosage appropriate for what one’s own body requires. Hormone specialists can choose between two approaches to dosing:

  • Weight-based – in adults, the doctor diagnosing growth hormone deficiency may look at between 0.006 mg/kg to 0.0125 mg/kg per day. Age, weight, gender, height, activity level, health, and other aspects are taken into consideration. The doctor will calculate this dosage using a person’s weight as a guideline.
  • Non-weight based – this approach is used less often in hormone replacement therapy because doctors want to target the HGH therapy directly to the individual’s needs. A starting dose between 0.15 – 0.30 mg/day is relatively standard without taking body weight into consideration. If the doctor has chosen to use this option, the dose may be increased monthly in increments of around 0.1 – 0.2 mg/day until the desired response is reached – without any sign of side effects.

Please remember these ranges are just that – estimates that doctors use in the determination of the proper dosage. Do not attempt to determine this on your own. The HGH dosage for females is typically less than that of men due to their lower weight and muscle to fat ratio. Only an experienced doctor in the field of hormone replacement therapy should prescribe HGH therapy.

In older adults, the doctor will often prescribe a lower starting HGH dosage for healing and well-being to give their bodies a chance to get used to this supplementation, increasing it slowly over a period of a few months.

Understanding HGH Dosage Costs and Administration

The actual HGH dosage cost per treatment cannot be determined until a brand and style of injectable are selected. Unlike some medications that come one way only, HGH is manufactured by many different pharmaceutical companies, including:

  • Pfizer (Genotropin)
  • Novo Nordisk (Norditropin)
  • Eli Lilly (Humatrope)
  • EMD Serono (Saizen)
  • Sandoz (Omnitrope)

We recommend these brands of HGH as the highest quality options on the market, and the ones that will provide the best results with affordable costs. Each company listed provides options for administering these shots, including low-priced standard vials of lyophilized HGH powder ready for reconstitution all the way up to injector pens and single dose prefilled syringes.

Actual HGH dosage and administration guidelines and instructions for the chosen option will be provided to each person, along with video links to watch how to prepare and administer the shot. Our clinical advisors will also explain the process, and even stay on the phone during the first treatment if desired.
