The scariest part of middle age is the knowledge that you'll grow out of it! ~ Doris Day

August 30, 2011:  I'm 65 this year.  I have pancreatic cancer with multiple metastatic abdominal lesions.  (anybody want a good dog? :-o)

IMHO, rhGH probably had something to do with the rapid cancer metastasis (more lesions in the liver than the radiologist could count) but not the cancer it's self.

History of Prescription hGH.  50 years:  From cadaver gland extraction (1958) to rDNA derived ( today )

 

The doer alone learnth. ~ Nietzsche

  • February 14, 2008: ABC News: rhGH replacement given in the appropriate dosage has minimal negative side effects.

  • CNN 2007: human Growth Hormone dosages required to produce negative side effects are much higher than prescribed.

  • AntiAging Medicine emerged as a field of medical specialty in the early '90s when many baby boomers elected to not accept the status quo regarding the inevitable progression of several common medical conditions / medical diagnosis commonly associated with aging.

  • Informed baby boomers know that many of the most debilitating conditions associated with aging are actually treatable conditions utilizing readily available FDA approved 21st century medicine. (much like infections were pre-antibiotics, many medical conditions are not treatable with 19th century medical technology /  leeches)

CBS 60 Minutes: Medical tourism story featured Bangkok's Bumrungrad Hospital pictured above

Both Medicare & AARP were resistant to discussing the details of the Medicare Part B / Part D  or the supplement with anyone who was not on Medicare or  immediately eligible for Medicare.  Why?

 

In 2010 I took my uninsured arse to Thailand for some affordable dental care.. 3 crowns & a bridge.  my savings (compared to my uninsured cost in the US) on the dental paid for a month long tropical vacation.

  • Thai price & meds are same same as Canada or France ..Mexico or Panama .. My personal medication expenses are 300% more in the US than my cost at  licensed pharmacies / hospitals around the planet.

April 22, 2008: NBC News: Mainstream Physicians Join Anti-Aging Movement.

  • There is a consensus that hormone replacement therapy can have .. often has .. a positive effect on many of the medical conditions associated with aging. 

If you live to 100 you have it made .. very few people die after the age of 100.  Groucho Marx

Medicare should hire a team of RN Case Managers to control the escalating totally non-negotiated Medicare expenses.  rhGH, Omnitrope, is available under Medicare with the Medicare Part D Pharmaceutical Supplement.

The Endocrinology of Aging: Many age associated mental & medical conditions are based in declining endocrine function

  • At 40 endogenous GH is about 75% that of a 25-30 year old ... production is 25% less & maybe you feel a little different.

  • At 50 endogenous GH is about 55% that of a 25-30 year old... the 45% decline combines with accumulated deficit & you feel it.

  • At 60 endogenous GH is about 40% that of a 25-30 year old... a 60% decline + the effects snow ball.

rhGH (recombinant human Growth Hormone, Somatropin) is a bio-synthetic hormone replacement medication that is rDNA derived & bio-identical w/ 191 amino acid sequence endogenous (naturally produced) Anterior Pituitary hGH (Somatotropin)

There are separate positive hormonal responses with aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise

 

  • Green Dash = Insulin
  • Orange Line = Average Glucose
  • Yellow Line = Blood Glucose.
  • Redline = hGH

  •  

    The systemic benefits from proper exercise can be life changing.

    For optimal physiologic benefit combine aerobic & anaerobic exercise.

    What's the difference between aerobic & anaerobic?

    To limit "selective age associated medical modalities" for Professional Athletes but allow other career enhancing / career extending modalities is definitely Medical Discrimination.

    • To deem 1 medical diagnosis as more worthy of treatment than another diagnosis is the 1st step down the road to Sarah Palin's predicted death panels.

    Medical Tourism: a realistic solution to the outrageous cost of US medical care.

    • Medical tourism is high tech globalization / outsourcing for the individual's benefit

    • CBS 60 Minutes Featured Report on Medical Tourism. CBS reports that American / European educated doctors & HUGE savings are the main motivators for the 750,000 (mostly uninsured) American who traveled overseas for health care in 2006.

    • PLEASE, doubt me .. but, read the CBS report on medical tourism

    • An uninsured American can easily pay for an exotic 1st class vacation with savings on medical care.

      • The savings on a physical with COMPLETE LABORATORY WORK (required for MANY prescriptions) can pay for a very nice vacation!

      • Prescription medications are 1/3 the US price (outside the price controlled corrupt US pharmaceutical system.  .. Canada, Mexico, France .. or Thailand)

      • 1 dental bridge can pay for a nice vacation ..  or the savings on cosmetic dental front veneers ($250 vs $1000 per tooth) pays for a deluxe vacation.

      • My US doc used my us$250 MRI to evaluate surgical options.

      • & the us $250 CT Scan determined the spot on my lung x-ray was an old scar not a potential future problem.

    Appropriate exercise is necessary to achieve optimized aging.  Exercise that challenges our strength & endurance has a powerful effect on our bodies .. at the cellular level.

    "Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate adult HRT because it improves the quality of your life."  rhGH Advocate Sylvester Stallone in People Magazine.  Compare Sly to other 63 YO guys .. he is still a vibrant man with pride in his stride, definitely not a shufflin' old codger!

    Health and Quality of Life define Personal Wealth. You're never to old to become Healthier ..Wealthier.

    rhGH is appropriately prescribed for aging adults with adult onset low human growth hormone production & is documented to improve body composition (muscle mass / fat ratio).

    The benefits of adult rhGH Therapy are well documented by 1000s of medical research studies (& daily at baseball stadiums). .

    We could be divided into 3 groups:

    • Those who are optimizing their personal situation

    • Those who want to optimize their personal situation

    • Those who 'wish they wanted to' optimize their personal situation

    All it takes for the wishers & wanters to join the achievers is a sincere desire to optimize their personal situation / life.

    Synopsis of the FDA's Chief Medical Officer's report to Congress on rhGH:

    • rhGH (injectable recombinant human Growth Hormone) is approved to treat the medical conditions associated with growth hormone deficiency, either adult or childhood onset. 

    • The US FDA states rHGH therapy is safe, effective & scientifically / medically justified.

    • "..the Agency (US FDA) has approved a number of biological products, such as human growth hormone, under the FD&C Act."
    • "..recombinant human growth hormone product approved .. (2) long-term replacement therapy in adults with growth hormone deficiency either childhood or adult onset."
    • "..applicable to the prevention, treatment or cure of a disease or condition of human beings... safety and effectiveness is scientifically justified." (PHS Act §351(i), 42 U.S.C §262(i)) 

    Long term medical research HAS BEEN COMPLETED regarding hGH therapy. 

    2008 marked 50 Years of Doctor Prescribed injectable hGH Therapy.

    • Modern rhGH has been utilized by millions of adults for over 15 years ..  when Somatropin is used as prescribed there are few reported negative effects

    • In 1958 Tufts University School of Medicine researcher Dr. Maurice Raben treated a 17 year old patient with Growth Hormone extracted from cadaver Anterior Pituitary glands.

    •  Natural Anterior Pituitary hGH is SomatotropinSomatotropin had the potential to cause Crutchfield-Jacobs Disease, CJD, which is similar to Mad Cow Disease.
      • Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) is the human form of spongiform encephalopathy, the bovine form of spongiform encephalopathy is commonly known as Mad Cow Disease.  Both are transmitted through contaminated Central Nervous System material.  From 1958 - 1985 Somatotropin was extracted from cadaver brains & was a source of contaminated CNS material.

    • 1985: Bio-Tech giant Genentech patented 1st generation biosynthetic rhGH Somatrem, methionyl-growth hormone or met-GH.  Biosynthetic Somatrem ended the potential of CJD, Crutchfield-Jacobs Disease. Somatrem met-GH is a 192 amino acid molecule.

    • 1993-2009: Genentech's second generation biosynthetic rhGH, Somatropin, is rDNA derived & bio-identical w/ the 191 amino acid sequence of Anterior Pituitary Gland secreted endogenous human Growth Hormone, Somatotropin.

    Somatropin is 21st century prescription rhGH .. biologically identical with endogenous / natural hGH.

    July, 2009: Israeli rhGH producer Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd has announced an US FDA approved rhGH delivery system that eliminates needles.

    • Israeli pharmaceutical giant Teva's highest quality recombinate human growth hormone (rhGH) product Tev-Tropin / Somatropin is widely dispensed by pharmacies / medical clinics that specialize in adult hormone replacement.

    October, 2009:  Britain's Critical Pharmaceuticals has secured a £1.5m / us $2.5m grant from the Wellcome Trust to develop a nasal spray of Human Growth Hormone (hGH) using its proprietary CriticalSorb technology.

    In response to several professional jocks marketing an amino acid hGH releaser the chairman of The World Anti-Doping Agency, Dr. Gary Wadler the Manhasset-based sports and drugs expert, reports:

    .. there is medical proof that "certain non-prescription amino acid products can transiently increase the production of human growth hormone"

    • There is no doubt that proper amino acid Secretagogue supplementation increases natural hGH production!

    • 2005 Syracuse University: Dr. Jim Stoppani, : A Research Project on men between 18 & 35 has published a report showing that that 6 grams to 9 grams of Arginine acts as a HGH Secretagogue. A 9 gram L-Arginine serving increased serum HGH by over 60%, from 4mcg/liter to 6.5 mcg/liter.

    • 9 grams = 9 - 18 large capsules!  & Why we ONLY recommend powder Secretagogue formulations!

  • Amino Acid Secretagogues .. hGH Releasers are not prescription & are sold in retail stores, not pharmacies.

     

    Prescription Testosterone ($60 per month)  can be injectable or cream (prescription rhGH is always injected).  Testosterone enhancers are not prescription & sold in retail stores.

    August 1996 the US Food & Drug Administration approves prescription injectable rhGH treatment for adults. 

    August 18, 2009: Human growth hormone (HGH) might be a key element in feeling your best as you age..

    • The worst scenario nay-sayers contend that there could be future unknown medical issues  . no objective negative findings to report on a prescription medication that has been prescribed for over 10 years to millions of adult patients to treat Adult GH deficiency .

      • The US FDA reports: a "..finding of (ED: rhGH's) safety and effectiveness is scientifically justified."

    Buy Secretagogues / HGH Releasers from the Secretagogue Store

    • If you have a damaged Anterior Pituitary or Hypothalamus gland Secretagogues will not work for you.  These glands must be intact for the Secretagogue supplementation to work.

    • By combining specific amino acids and other synergistic nutrients we can trigger desired responses by specific glands. 

      • The basis for increasing the Human Growth Hormone level is the use of HGH releasers or agonists.

    • Secretagogues are substances that stimulate the endocrine system to increase growth hormone secretions.

      • One would be hard pressed to find a 21st century exercise or nutrition publication that does not tout the benefits of amino acid supplementation.

    • Amino Acid Nutritional Stacks based on published research.

      • Amino Acid HGH Secretagogue Stacks that are comparable to the recommendations cited in Dr. Klatz' 1998 research, published in his 1998 book, "Grow Young With HGH".
