What can you tell me about this human growth hormone and prevention of lipodystrophy and facial wasting?

Response from Dr. Fisher

HGH can mobilize fat from areas of accumulation, but no clear evidence that it can tell the fat to go to areas of fat depletion! There may be some benefit caused by facial edema (fluid retention) that may or may not last.

Help! This is a serious issue here!
