Some of you might think this is off topic on a steroid forum, but bear in mind that's where I have the most chance to get constructive and educated answers about my request. All medical forums have been clueless. Most of my health issues come down to my gut being leaky (as assessed by test), after rounds of unnecessary antibiotics and junk food for years. I've put all natural solutions in place to heal it: raw food, gluten free, no refined sugars, glutamine, collagen powder, collostrum. The benefits are immense and I can feel a tremendous improvement. However I'm still miles away from absorbing nutrients as well as I used to. I have access to pharm grade HGH pens, and I have read anecdotal evidence that HGH helps in healing a leaky gut by sealing the tight junctions back together. 1) have you read anything supporting that anecdotal evidence? 2) how many IUs of pharm grade HGH / day would help in treating my gut? 3) assuming I would do a 6 months treatment at 2 pins/day for a total of 4IUs / day, would my pituitary resume it's own production after the 6 months?
