low GH
Dec 3, 2007

Hi Dr. Frascino, I am still having fatigue and I have a question. I read that HIV men that have experienced-belly fat gain were in a study and it was found that they had up 40% lower Growth hormone than other men in their age group who were Hiv neg. Does having a 40% lower GH contribute to fatique? If so can I do anything to help my levels?Thanks

Response from Dr. Frascino


Low growth hormone levels have not been linked to HIV-related fatigue directly. Purely for informational purposes, I might mention one of the best ways to raise growth hormone levels naturally is to exercise!
