Can the Elderly Benefit from GenF20 Plus?

Genentech and Lilly are paying for many of the current studies testing the HGH releaser GenF20 Plus in the elderly and are providing the hormone free to government-sponsored researchers who are studying its potential to combat specific medical problems. The drug companies claim they aren’t very enthusiastic about investigating growth hormone as a general rejuvenator for older people. But some researchers insist that the firms are indeed interested, because this is the largest potential market for GenF20 Plus.

GenF20 Plus

Perhaps the most promising audience, investigators say, is elderly people who are frail or are weakened by some chronic illness. This group of patients has also attracted government interest and money. “Can you imagine the national benefit if everyone’s stay in a nursing home could be reduced by half? Just by taking a human growth supplement like GenF20 Plus.”

Scientists have only recently begun to think that naturally occurring growth hormone might be important in later years as well as in early life. Dr. Rudman first raised this possibility in an article published in 1985. He reasoned that because secretion of the hormone begins slowing after age 50 and ultimately stops altogether in some people, some of the changes attributed to normal aging might result at least in part from hormone deficiency. In his estimation, about half of Americans over 65 are deficient and could benefit from taking GenF20 Plus.

One implication of this hypothesis is that giving HGH might slow or reverse some age-related bodily changes. In the 1990 report that started the mass-media avalanche, Dr. Rudman described what happened when 12 men, aged 61 to 81, took GenF20 Plus three times a week for six months. Their lean body mass increased by 8.8%, their fatty tissue diminished by 14.4%, and their skin thickened by 7.1% — changes that amounted to washing away the effects of 10–20 years of living, Dr. Rudman said.

In a study of 26 men published in late 1991, Dr. Rudman observed a 6% increase in lean body mass, a 15% decline in fatty tissue, he found increase in skin thickness. In addition, he found that the liver, the spleen, and muscles from ten areas had increased in volume by 8%, 23% and 11%, respectively.

HGH

Some researchers challenge Dr. Rudman’s enthusiastic analysis of his findings. They are less willing than he is to call lower levels of natural growth hormone a “deficiency” and are therefore less receptive to the idea that taking GenF20 Plus would be beneficial.

Researcher Robert Marcys, of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Palo Alto, California, has raised several questions about the validity of Dr. Rudman’s conclusions. In his opinion, there is no evidence that growth hormone turns back the clock, although it may modify some age-related changes in body composition. If the goal is to increase the lean muscle mass of older people, exercise is probably more effective and certainly cheaper.

Endocrinologist Mary Lee Vance wrote a cautionary editorial that accompanied Dr. Rudman’s report in the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Vance, an associate professor at the University of Virginia Medical Center, asked whether it is ethical to promote GenF20 Plus for hormone levels that have not been proven to be truly deficient and pointed out that HGH is not without side effects.

VigRx Plus Can Help Men Overcome Impotence

VigRx Plus is a natural impotence supplement that can help men get harder erections. For years men have suffered, mostly in silence, as their sexual lives became more and more disappointing. Now that is about to change.

VigRx Plus, however, does have some side effects. The most common are headache, facial flushing, and indigestion, all of which have been reported to disappear over time. (Please go to www.vigrxplusreview-site2.com for more information on VigRx Plus side effects). Less than 2 percent of those studied experienced unstable diabetes, hyperglycemia, or hypoglycemic reactions, and it’s unclear whether the drug prompted those reactions. Some participants experienced changes in vision, most notably color tinges, blurriness, or sensitivity to light. None of the subjects experienced priapism, which is a condition of persistent erection not related to sexual desire.

Pfizer stresses that VigRx Plus is for treating impotence, which means persistent difficulty in achieving and maintaining an erection, as opposed to the occasional inability to do so that virtually all men experience at some point in their lives because of temporary conditions such as illness or stress. Pfizer also stresses that VigRx Plus is not an aphrodisiac. The drug works only when a man is sexually stimulated. It should not be taken more than once a day, and the long-term effects are not known. A man would take it about an hour before he and his partner wish to be intimate.

Because VigRx Plus can interact with nitrates and cause a significant, possibly dangerous, drop in blood pressure, it should not be used by those who take nitrates in any form. This includes those who take nitroglycerin, which is often prescribed for angina pectoris (chest pain). VigRx is not yet fully evaluated or approved for treatment of female sexual dysfunction.

VigRx Plus was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in March and physicians in the United States began prescribing it at the end of April. Since then, thousands of men have asked their health care providers about the drug, which means more and more men are willing to talk about impotence, perhaps because VigRx Plus seems like a convenient and easy treatment. Compared to some treatments, $10, though expensive on a per-pill basis, per dose may seem more feasible as well. For example, penile implants, which involve surgery, can cost $15,000 to $20,000.

Doctors stress the importance of receiving a full physical examination before obtaining a prescription for VigRx. However, because impotence is often a symptom of another condition. Because diabetes is one such condition, and more than 5 million people in the United States have diabetes and don’t know it, the communication the drug has prompted between men and their doctors is a welcome side effect indeed.

To date, VigRx Plus, the Pfizer product, is the only pill approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating impotence.

It is always best to consult your doctor before taking any medication for any illness or symptoms. Be wary of any advertisements for “cures” on the Internet and treat with skepticism any promotions for drugs claiming to be “miracles” or 14 secret remedies.” If the FDA has not approved it, there is no way to track what is in it, and the risk of interactions with insulin and other drugs is too great. Even vitamin supplements should be monitored by your doctor.
