Supposedly, this celebrity doctor has been prescribing and administering human growth hormone to his patients and he's been taking it himself.
I always feel conflicted when I read about HGH being used for "longevity" or anti-aging. I worry that people see this, get the wrong idea, and think HGH is this wonderful thing with no negative health repercussions. I rarely see mentions of acromegaly and the health effects of having too much HGH. On the other hand, I hope that with all this interest in HGH, more research will go into the study of it, which may inadvertently lead to advances in the treatment of acromegaly.
