Growth Hormone Therapy Cost

Cost of HGH Therapy.Patients often wonder how much does growth hormone therapy cost?

The cost of human growth hormone therapy (HGH) will vary from patient to patient. Growth hormone therapy is prescribed on an individual basis. There are different doses and different brands of HGH available. The best dose and the right brand will be prescribed to you based on your unique diagnosis and lifestyle.

Is Growth Hormone Treatment Expensive?

The cost of growth hormone therapy varies from patient to patient, so how expensive it is, really depends on your symptoms, your diagnosis, your prescribed dose of HGH, and your means to pay for it.

When deciding whether the cost of growth hormone therapy is worth it or not, you MUST take into consideration the cost of NOT having HGH replacement therapy if your doctor decides you need HGH replacement.

Ignoring a diagnosis of adult-onset growth hormone deficiency and avoiding treatment because you think it is too expensive will only result in continued declining health and a poor quality of life.

What Is the Average Cost of HGH Therapy in the US?

Depending on your dose and brand of HGH, a vial of growth hormone costs anywhere from about $500 to over $5000.

The following factors all impact the cost of HGH:

  • Your particular dose and prescription
  • Your symptoms and medical history
  • Your age, weight, and gender
  • Your unique wellness goals and lifestyle

Does Insurance Cover Growth Hormone Therapy?

Health Insurance and HGH Therapy.The cost of HGH injections is rarely covered by health insurance. The FDA currently approves the prescription of HGH for only two medical conditions:

  • Children who fail to achieve normal growth milestones
  • The muscle wasting that occurs in HIV/AIDS patients

If your insurance does not cover the cost of your HGH injections, there still may be ways to save on your growth hormone injections.

Is There “Over-the-Counter” HGH?

There is no such thing as “over-the-counter HGH.” Authentic HGH is only available with a doctor’s prescription and is only given via injection. Any pill, patch, or other product claiming to be HGH or to contain growth hormone that you can buy online or anywhere else without a prescription is not genuine HGH. Real HGH is a prescription medication and is only given via injections.

The cost of growth hormone injections will vary based on brand, dosage, country of origin, and source. Our doctors only use brand-name HGH injections made by US-based pharmacies. You may pay a little bit more for US-sourced growth hormone injections. However, any brand-name HGH made in the US is guaranteed to be the safest and the highest quality HGH. Growth hormone injections from the “black market” or from countries such as China or India could cost less; however, buying HGH injections from such sources can be dangerous.

Growth hormone injections from foreign sources may cost less, but your health is not the place to compromise to save a few dollars. Off-brand HGH from outside of the US can be ineffective at best and harmful at worst.

You cannot save money by buying “oral HGH supplements.” There is no such thing. Real HGH is only prescribed as injections. Any product claiming to be HGH or contain HGH that is available in a pill, or powder, or anything other than an injection, is not HGH. Furthermore, you can only legally buy HGH injections with a doctor’s prescription. Any product you can buy without a prescription cannot be real HGH.

How Can I Save Money on Growth Hormone Therapy?

HGH injections are rarely covered by insurance. However, there could be ways to work with our health advisors to keep your costs down. If your doctor decides you need HGH therapy, you should work together to find a way within your budget to pay for it.

You also may be able to save some money on the overall cost of growth hormone therapy if you qualify for an alternative to HGH therapy, such as sermorelin therapy. Sermorelin is a kind of growth hormone therapy. Sermorelin is not human growth hormone, but in some cases, sermorelin therapy can be considered an alternative to HGH. In adults that have been diagnosed with age-related growth hormone deficiency, sermorelin can be used to stimulate your body to release more human growth hormone.

If you qualify for sermorelin therapy, it could be a lower-cost alternative to growth hormone therapy. One of the main advantages of sermorelin therapy in patients where it is appropriate is that it tends to be a less costly alternative to HGH injections. On average, HGH injections cost anywhere from $500 to $5000 per month, depending on the dose and brand of HGH. Sermorelin injections cost only about $400 to $750 per month.

However, only your doctor can determine if you qualify for sermorelin therapy.

What Is Included in the Cost of HGH Therapy?

Cost of your HGH Replacement TherapyWhen you are comparing the costs of HGH Therapy, remember that your HGH prescription is not the only cost involved. You must take into account your doctor’s visits and any additional medications or supplements that your doctor may prescribe as part of your program. This is another reason why the cost of monthly HGH therapy will vary from patient to patient.

There can be other costs associated with your HGH injections, such as:

  • You will also have to pay for your initial consultation with your doctor and for your lab work.
  • Regular doctor visits and blood tests may be required over the course of your HGH program to monitor your hormone levels.

Your insurance may cover some of these additional costs, and there may be ways we can work with you to help minimize the costs of your HGH replacement therapy.

Yes. Absolutely, 100% you cannot legally purchase HGH without first being diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency and then getting a prescription for HGH injections from your doctor.

There is only one way to obtain growth hormone legally. It is not complicated. It only takes Five Simple Steps.

  • Step 1 – Fill out an online medical history form – This first step is indeed the only step in the process of getting HGH injections that can be done online.
  • Step 2 - See a doctor –If your online medical history form indicates that you are a good candidate for HGH therapy, the next step is to see your doctor. He or she will discuss your medical history in further detail, ask you more about your symptoms, and take a complete physical exam.
  • Step 3 – Laboratory hormone testing – Once you have completed your physical exam, you will be referred to a laboratory to have the hormone levels in your blood tested.
  • Step 4 – You will obtain a prescription for a program of HGH injections -  If the results of your laboratory tests show that your HGH levels are low,  your doctor will prescribe a dosage of growth hormone injections to suit your needs and lifestyle.
  • Step 5 – Your HGH will be delivered to you – Your prescription for HGH therapy will be forwarded to one of the pharmacies we work with that specializes in filling prescriptions for HGH injections. The pharmacy will then deliver your HGH therapy supplies to you.

Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is a recognized medical condition. GHD in adults most commonly persists from an untreated or ineffectively treated growth hormone deficiency in childhood. However, it can also develop in adulthood without any previous history of GHD. Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. Therefore, any kind of growth hormone deficiency is in some way related to a problem with pituitary function.

Your levels of growth hormone drop as you age; this often leads to a condition known as age-related or adult-onset growth hormone deficiency.

Growth hormone deficiencies can occur in adults or children. Some of the signs and symptoms overlap; others are unique to children or adults. In either children or adults, the most common signs and symptoms of a growth hormone deficiency include:

  • Often feeling fatigued, slow, or lethargic
  • An overall feeling of lack of energy and enthusiasm
  • Low libido and other sexual wellness issues
  • Hair loss, or thinning hair
  • Liver spots, “creepy” skin, and other skin conditions
  • Suppressed immune system, easier to get sick, harder to heal or recover
  • Weight gain, particularly abdominal fat
  • Memory loss and other cognitive difficulties
  • Bone loss and bone weakness
  • Depression, anxiety, and other emotional changes

The so-called "normal" growth hormone level is not the same for everybody. The right amount of HGH for any given individual varies based largely on size and weight. Therefore, once your growth hormone test is completed, your evaluation and diagnosis for growth hormone deficiency, if any, is based on Body Mass Index or BMI. Doctors use the following criteria to form a diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency in adults when testing for growth hormone levels:

  • Peak HGH level less than11.1 mcg/L in patients with BMI less than 25
  • Peak HGH level less than 8.1 mcg/L in patients with BMI of 25 to less than 30
  • Peak HGH level less than 4.1 mcg/L in patients with BMI equal to or greater than 30

The benefits of HGH replacement therapy for people with growth hormone deficiencies are many. In children, growth hormone therapy can help them grow more normally and achieve full stature. In adults:

  • Growth hormone therapy improves fat metabolism and results in more lean muscle and less fat
  • HGH therapy increase energy and vitality
  • HGH therapy improves skin health, lessens the appearance of  lines and wrinkles
  • HGH replacement improves sleep
  • HGH replacement increases cognitive functioning
  • HGH injections help improve heart health and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease
  • HGH injections can boost your immune system
  • HGH therapy can improve mood
  • Growth hormone therapy may improve sexual function
