Muscle Wasteage
Jul 28, 2003

I have been +ve for nine years and suffered much muscle wasteage over this time. I have regained my weight but my face andlega are still emaciated. I have discovered Human Groth Hormone on a website. Would this help in rebuilding those areas? I also have intermitant erectile disfunction and it says it can help with this too. Is thi true?


Response from Dr. Moyle

Human growth hormone is an excellent treatment for muscle wasting. However, I would be very cautious about buying this over the Internet as there have been a number of scams involving the sale of growth hormone and other muscle building agents. The best thing would be to talk to Dr about how you could gain access to Serostim or other growth hormone products from a reputable pharmacy.

Take care
