"The cardiovascular risk of adult HGH deficiency [GHD] improved after HGH replacement and worsened in untreated GHD patients;
a 12 month prospective study"
Increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality were reported in HGH deficiency [GHD], and HGH replacement can ameliorate cardiac
abnormalities of adult GHD [Growth hormone deficient] patients.
At study entry, low IGF-1 levels, unfavorable lipid [fat] profiles, and inadequate cardiac and physical performance were found in GHD patients compared with controls.
After 12 months of HGH treatment, IGF-1 levels normalized; HDL-cholesterol levels, left ventricular [LV] mass index, left ventrical ejection fraction at peak exercise, peak filling rate, exercise duration and capacity significantly increased; total- and LDL-cholesterol levels significantly decreased.
After 12 months in HGH-untreaded GHD patients, IGF-1 levels remained stable, and HDL-cholesterol levels, LVEF at rest and its response at peak exercise were further reduced; total -- and LDL -- cholesterol levels increased slightly.
In conclusion, 12 months of HGH replacement normalized IGF-1 and improved lipid [fat] profile and cardiac performance in adult GHD
A similar period of HGH deprivation induced a further impairment of lipid profile and cardiac performance. This finding
strongly supports the need of HGH replacement in adult GHD patients.
Is Human Life Span Infinite? HealthSCOUT, 10/02/00
"The Roman orator Cicero once said, 'No one is so old as to think he cannot live one more year.' Modern science may have us all thinking that way pretty soon -- and for good reason. In spite of numerous claims that human life expectancy tops out around age 120, new research shows we're living longer than ever before. It also suggests how far we can expect expect to push the limits of the human life span is anyone's guess."
"Fountain of Youth" ABC NEWS 20/20, 10/25/95
ABC News show 20/20 spotlighted the benefits of HGH therapy. Reporter Michael Guillen commented: Wouldn't it be great to feel young all your life? To always have the vim and vigor of a 30-year old, even when you're 60 or 70 and beyond?
Well, to a growing number of baby boomers hitting that big 5-0 the idea of slowing down the clock, maybe even reversing it, is more than just a pipe dream.
The Oprah Winfrey Show, March 3, 1999 "Medical Miracles"
During an appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Ronald Klatz, author of "Grow Young with HGH" and president of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, said "sophisticated genetic tests will one day make diseases treatable years before symptoms appear and the human lifespan may be as long as 130 years. "You'll reach a point, at about 45 or 50 years of age, and stay there for another 50 or 60 years." Oprah wondered, "Where do I sign up?"
Time Magazine, November 25, 1996, "Can We Stay Young?"
From Time Magazine's article "Fountain of Youth:"
"Most promising of all is the possibility that scientists may someday not only lengthen life spans, but improve them as well. Researchers are starting to talk about the likelihood of people living well into their second centuries with the smooth skin, firm muscles, clear vision, high energy and vigorous sexual capabilities they once could only enjoy in youth."
