SARS-CoV-2 Causes Impairment Of Human Growth Hormone Secretion That Can Lead To Disease Severity and Long COVID Issues. HGH Supplementation Can Help?
SARS-CoV-2 And Human Growth Hormone Mar 19, 2023 8 days ago
Human Growth Hormone or HGH is now emerging as interesting therapeutic agent that can prevent disease severity and also help with Long COVID issues. In fact emerging data also shows that it can also be deployed as a potential prophylactic agent to prevent SARS-CoV-2 infections!
It should be noted that growth hormone secretion typically decreases and tapers off as people age and this could possibly help explain why many of the older and aged individuals are more vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infections and disease severity.
It should also be noted that COVID-19 induced growth hormone disruption in children and teens can lead to numerous problems as well.
Interestingly an Israel study showed that children taking somatropin, a synthetic version of growth hormone for existing issues during the COVID019 onslaught, had lower risk of contracting SARS-CoV-2 infection! https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36553288/
Some researchers are now proposing using growth hormone supplementation to help in the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infections and also to prevent disease severity. https://encyclopedia.pub/entry/1070
In the same light, somatropin injections or IV infusions are being explored as a possible therapeutic agent for some Long COVID manifestations.
Thailand Medical News advocates that more resources are channeled into further research and studies exploring the usage of growth hormone as a possible prophylactic and therapeutic agent to prevent disease severity and also as a therapeutic agent for certain Long COVID manifestations.
