Why the Correct Dosage for HGH Injections Matters

Dosage For HGH Injections

Perhaps the most important aspect of human growth hormone therapy is knowing the proper dosage for HGH injections. If you administer too little, you will most likely not get the desired results. If you inject too much HGH, you will probably start to develop some unpleasant side effects.

So, what is the correct dosage for HGH injections?

If you have done any research at all on other websites, you have probably seen people recommend beginning at 2 IU per day if they are looking to use HGH for anti-aging or restorative health purposes. Chances are most adults will be able to avoid adverse reactions by staying under 3 IU per day. You may have also seen doses listed of 4 to 6 IU daily for individuals taking HGH for sports enhancement, fitness, or bodybuilding. Not only do these dosages increase the risk of unwanted side effects, using HGH for those purposes are illegal and not recommended by Greenberg Health.

Now, just because you see other websites tell you that 2 IU of HGH is an average standard for treatment, that does not mean it will work for your body. You have to know what is your proper dose. HGH injections are customized for each individual’s needs.

How to Determine Dosage for HGH Injections

The dosage for human growth hormone injections varies from one person to another based on the following important factors:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Weight
  • Height
  • Overall health
  • Level of HGH deficiency

For example, a woman who is 50 years of age, 5’2” tall, weighing 150 pounds will not need the same dosage of HGH as a man who is 45 years of age, 6’1” tall, weighing 275 pounds. If she were to take his dosage, she would likely experience side effects from the HGH treatment. Of course, if he took her dose of HGH, he probably would not notice the positive benefits of HGH that he desired.

The hormone specialist will run diagnostic blood tests to measure the level of HGH in the body. The severity of the deficiency will be the first factor in the decision-making process. The other information will come from the physical exam report and the health history questionnaire.

Once the dosage for HGH injections is determined, one of our medical advisors here at Greenberg Health will help you choose the correct brand and injector style that best suits your needs and budget.

We cannot impress upon you enough the need to work with an experienced hormone specialist to get a prescription for HGH. The right treatment will do wonders for your body. The wrong medication or dosage could do harm.
