Hgh reading of .01 ( or undetectable)

Hi guys

Thanks for reading.

I've had a bit of a nightmare journey, and after receiving my hgh results yesterday from the stimulation test, am incredibly anxious about my next appointment.

My hgh reading was .01.....

Thank god for science

Is there still a chance they'all tell me to just get on with it, or in anyone's view am I likely to receive treatment so I can enjoy the rest of my life.

I'm 32 years old.

Thank you

I have no knowledge about hgh stimulation tests. Hopefully another member will.

Has your doctor tested all of your thyroid hormones, i.e. TSH, T4, T3, Free T4, Free T3 and thyroid antibodies. If not ask if you could have them done and at least you know why you might be having unpleasant symptoms.

If the doctor tested your Free T4 and Free T3 hormone levels it would give a clearer idea of whether or not your body is producing sufficient thyroid hormones. Both have to be towards the top of the range for us to feel well.

This is a link which may be helpful for you of which your doctor will be unaware I should think. They just cannot take the TSH and diagnose.
