Blood Test Result: Low GH Level
Got bloodwork done by my primary care doctor and it came back I had low GH levels. I just saw a endocronologist and he is sending me for more comprehensive testing. My question is...
Is there any way I can make sure my GH levels come in low
like not sleeping, getting drunk the night before, eating before test, no sex/gym for a # of days, etc. Any ideas are appricated.

Is your insurance going to pay for the HGH if prescribed?

I have the best insurance you can get where I live so I'm guessing yes.

If I really need it, why wouldn't they pay for it?
Anyway, I have the money if they don't.

what was your level if i may ask??? i had 2 test levels one was 89 and the other was 6, which both suck.. and my gh was low as well it was 0.1 and he said that was way low.. he is an endocrinologist as well. he seems reluctant and wanting to go with the pproach like the gel, but ive usued it befor so im pushing for test by injection and gh. my only problem is that i travel alot and am rarely home so im hoping for something hell let me do on my own.

I just called my insurance company and they cover HGH.
My GH level was 0.1 too I think. He said they were virtually non-existant. My symptoms are losing weight/strenght, being tired all the time, and moody. It could be just "getting old" but I don't want to accept that ;-)

Now back to the original question... what steps before the bloodwork can I do to make sure it's LOW.

I second that. Good to know they're covering it.

Lack of sleep should workk. But you would have to basically get no sleep at all. GH is produced early in sleep. The first couple of hours during stage 4. Hope that helps.

Did they check your IGF-1 levels too? If gh is non-existant, there won't be any igf-1 either...

Got blood drawn today. They were checking for a bunch of stuff... test, free test, T3, T4, FHS, LH, GH (some weird name like saramorphim), estrogen, etc. I think I saw IGF1 too...not sure though.

Yep... had the rep on the phone... she told me yes. It would be a $25 copay for genetropin, humatrop, etc... not sure if that's per "vial" or per month but I do have the best health coverage in the area you can get.
