alright none of you guys have any idea what you're talking about. they are for a legitimate condition, and can seriously help if you have that condition. It's not just for an edge in sports and shit. It's a small shot every night but its a small needle, and it doesnt hurt.
Take the test. There's a test to see if you have a growth hormone defficiency, I took it. It's a legitimate medical condition. The test is fucking brutal (you start fasting at 8 the night before, wake up got to the hospital at 8, and they take a thing of blood from you every 30 minutes for 6 hours. and they put something in you that makes you throw up, and because theres no food in your stomach bile comes out. I passed out during mine) but its worth it. I was borderline defficient, but opted not to take them. I've since grown to about 5'7 (im 16) and im basically done growing.
my older brother however got tested and started taking hgh (human growth hormones) in 2nd grade, after his 2nd grade checkup revealed he did not grow the entire year. They have helped him immensely, and he is now off at the age of 18, and is a solid 5'10.
my little brother (13) started taking them last year, and he has already begun to show some improvement.
Basically don't listen to anyone on here. Your doctor knows more than anyone on NS, ask him. They can seriously help, i've heard nothing but good stories about them from people with growth hormone deficiencies that take them
