One Midlife Bachelor’s Experience …

Human Growth Hormone Therapy?
Sometime earlier this year … basically in the middle of my personal dilemma and pursuit of various treatments for lack of libido and E.D., I found myself watching the CBS News program called “60 Minutes”.  I actually watch “60 Minutes” every Sunday without fail – partly because I am a “news junky”, and partly because I just love that particular television news magazine.  One of the stories that evening was on a particular medical institute – a clinic or set of clinics I suppose that administers doses of the Human Growth Hormone.  They interviewed the founding medical doctor, and also some of his patients … a number of whom were middle-age or older men.   These men said on camera to the “60 Minutes” interviewer that they felt like they were in their mid-twenties again … they spoke of feeling virile and alive and energetic.  I remember thinking to myself that it was FATE that I see this story at this point in my life … that the patients they interviewed looked like they were experiencing the joys of a youthful metabolism all over again.

Did I rush out, and find the local clinic or doctor?  No – or not yet.  I spoke to both my chiropractor (who is a heath nut) and also my urologist about HGH (human growth hormone), and they both said just about the same thing.   According to them, HGH can have beneficial effects on men like the male patients on the “60 Minutes” interview – but you can also have some undesired side affects.   For example, I was told that the human body decreases the production of HGH as we grow older FOR A REASON, and that reason can be so that you do not stimulate the growth of abnormal cells (like cancer cells).  This makes intuitive sense – as we grow older, our bodies change … and we become more susceptible to conditions like an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, as well as other abnormalities (like the abnormal mole I grew on my right-hand earlier this year).   If I were to be given something that would stimulate cell growth (like HGH), I very well might accelerate the growth of something undesirable.   The other thing that one of my doctors mentioned was that if I were to start getting HGH injections, my body’s natural ability to produce its own HGH might taper off.   In other words, if the body does not have to produce something for a long period of time, its ability to do so in the future might be permanently disabled.   With all of this new information on HGH, I have stayed clear of any HGH-specific doctor’s treatments – but I still might decide later on to give it a try.
