The cost of human growth hormone (HGH) therapy will often depend on factors such as the amount of HGH you need, the amount of time your treatment will last, and on whether your health insurer will help cover the cost of this medication.
HGH injections are highly beneficial for those who may have problems producing this growth hormone on their own or who are experiencing a range of symptoms related to low levels of HGH.
If you think HGH therapy may cost too much for you, our HealthGAINS clinic in Miami can discuss available payment options so you can receive this growth hormone as needed to improve your health and well-being.
Here’s an overview of HGH therapy cost and how you can obtain it affordably.
What is HGH?
HGH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that plays a major role in growth in people of all ages. HGH also helps regulate bone and muscle growth, metabolism, body composition, and bodily fluids; HGH also interacts with other hormones to support many other functions.
A person’s levels of HGH decline naturally with age. Reduced levels of HGH can lead to symptoms of decreased mental acuity/focus, body composition changes (cognitive problems), longer recovery time from injuries, skin conditions, and many others that can impact and lessen your quality of life. Increasing the body’s levels of HGH can help improve or reverse these symptoms so people can get back to enjoying life, being active, and feeling healthy each day.
What is HGH Therapy?
HGH therapy is a type of hormone therapy that increases the body’s levels of growth hormone. HGH therapy can be used to treat children, adolescents, and adults. This therapy is normally administered in the form of HGH injections and can be prescribed by doctors who specialize in hormone treatments. Patients who receive HGH therapy can receive injections from their doctors at a clinic or administer the injections themselves in the privacy of their own homes.
Supplements that claim to boost HGH production are commonly sold in many health and vitamin stores and on the Internet. However, these HGH products do not contain the real, pure form of HGH since this hormone is only obtainable and legal by prescription.
If you are concerned about high HGH therapy costs from a doctor, you must understand that turning to HGH sources outside of a medical setting can be risky because non-prescription HGH may be ineffective, counterfeit, or illegal. The HGH cost may be far less when you purchase this growth hormone outside of a medical setting, but your health may suffer in the long run.
Is HGH Dangerous?
HGH therapy is only dangerous when you use HGH that is not prescribed to you by a doctor. HGH supplements and products sold online or over-the-counter without a prescription do not contain real HGH. Many of these products contain additives, harmful ingredients, and other substances that won’t work to increase growth hormone and in fact, may worsen your symptoms and hormonal health.
When prescribed by a licensed medical doctor, HGH is completely safe. HGH therapy offers a countless number of benefits for adults who need higher amounts of this growth hormone.
Benefits of HGH therapy include:
- Increased energy levels
- Increased vitality
- Increased muscle mass
- Increased fat loss
- Restful, quality sleep
- Improved skin health
- Improved cognition
- Stronger immunity
- Greater well-being
Keep in mind that you can only benefit from HGH if this therapy is prescribed and/or administered by a licensed medical doctor. Using HGH from outside sources can be dangerous, risky, and unsafe.
How Much Does Growth Hormone Therapy Cost?
There is no exact set cost for HGH therapy. The HGH price will vary based on factors, such as the amount the clinic charges for HGH therapy, the type of HGH you are prescribed, and how long you will need this therapy to recover from or improve your symptoms and health condition.
Studies suggest that patients may pay the following average amounts for daily doses of HGH between 0.15 mg and 0.30 mg:
- Humatrope — $21 to $49 per day, or $7,665 to $17,886 per year
- Nutropin — $20 to $82 per day, or $7,164 to $29,851 per year
- Nutropin AQ — $20 to $82 per day, or $7,221 to $30,089 per year
- Omnitrope — $5 to $9 per day, or $1,706 to $3,412 per year
- Saizen — $17 to $38 per day, or $6,245 to $13,742 per year
Your doctor can give you a more accurate estimate of the HGH cost during your initial consultation. HealthGAINS in Aventura offers every patient a free consultation prior to HGH therapy so you can decide whether this treatment is ideal for you. You can also contact your health insurer directly to find out whether the cost of HGH therapy is covered by your health plan.
What is the Cost of HGH Supplements?
HGH supplements are often far less costly than HGH injections, but only because HGH supplements do not contain real HGH. Products that are marketed as HGH supplements may support other bodily processes that play a role in the body’s production of HGH but won’t deliver the hormone. The only way to obtain real, legitimate HGH is to get a prescription from a hormone doctor who specializes in this type of therapy.
What is the HGH Injection Cost?
HGH injections are the most effective form of human growth hormone. HGH injections may be more costly than other forms of HGH since they are legitimate and available by prescription only. The daily cost of HGH injections may range anywhere between $5 and $82 per day and will vary based on your dosage and the HGH brand.
How Much is a Month Supply of HGH?
The monthly cost of HGH injections may range anywhere between $150 and $2,500 per month depending on the dose needed and the brand of HGH prescribed to you by your doctor.
Where Can I Find Effective, Quality HGH?
The most effective and quality HGH is prescribed by a doctor who specializes in hormones. These doctors will review your medical history, perform an examination, and run one or more lab tests to determine whether you can benefit from HGH. If the doctor determines you have a clinical need for hormones, he or she will prescribe this growth hormone in the form of injections.
Can I Combine HGH With Other Treatments to Save Money?
Some clinics that specialize in hormone therapies like HGH may offer bundles or discounts to patients who purchase large quantities of HGH or who combine HGH with other treatments. Hormone therapies that may be combined with HGH are bioidentical hormone replacement therapy using pellets or gels, sermorelin therapy, and thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
HealthGAINS offers all these hormone therapies and a variety of sexual health and wellness therapies, including erectile dysfunction treatment hair restoration, body sculpting vampire facelift.
