Human Growth Hormone and Weight Loss

Human Growth Hormone and Weight Loss

Clinical Weight Loss Study on HGH

In a study on the effect of HGH on obesity, researchers from St. Louis University injected a group of obese patients with a low-dose of human growth hormone. It is suggested that HGH may help obese people reduce body fat, but maintain muscle mass. Researchers report that overweight patients who got the injections did lose some weight but they say it is too soon to know if the findings are significant. The research was presented at the 85th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society in Philadelphia.

The research was based on a group of 59 people who averaged 40% above their ideal body weight. These obese patients were instructed to follow a calorie-restricted diet and an exercise program. They also got either daily self-administered shots of low-dose growth hormone or placebo injections. During the course of the 6 month research, one-third of the original participants dropped out because they did not want to follow the lifestyle guidelines or give themselves the daily injections. One person dropped out because of side effects.

The findings of this research project on the effect of HGH on weight loss differs from earlier studies using higher doses of growth hormone. In earlier studies, potentially serious side effects were commonly seen. These side effects of higher doses of HGH included arthritis and insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes.

Weight Loss Results Using HGH

After 6 months, participants got the human growth hormone had lost an average of five pounds weight. Those obese patients who did not receive the hormone did not lose weight. The hormone growth group improved their HDL or good cholesterol by 19 percent with no change in LDL, or bad cholesterol levels.

Despite these weight loss results, the project's lead researcher remains cautious. Dr Stewart Albert says indirectly HGH may have helped with weight loss by making it easier for people to maintain a healthier lifestyle. "If the growth hormone had any benefit, it was to allow people to continue with the diet and exercise. It may be that growth hormone has a beneficial effect on appetite control or that because people didn't lose muscle mass they were able to exercise more. It will take much larger studies to answer these questions."
