Soma Fall Reviews

Fri, 24 Feb 2012

My 19 year old son tried to give blood the other day and he was refused because he answered the question that he had taken HGH, Somatropin under a doctor's care.  He asked why and they said it had been shown to cause birth defects.  I am trying to find information on that but I am not being successful.
He took the drugs for about 5 years 12-17.  As we look to the future and him possibly having children is this something we need to be concerned about or aware of?  We are in the process of contacting the doctor who prescribed the meds to get his input.

I've been on it for 9 months. I weighed at the beginning 125 and had a body fat of 24. I now weigh 130 I have the same body fat percentage. While I have increased muscle mass, I eat well work out, have increased cardio amp; workouts, I'm sad that the only way that I can decrease my body fat is to eat less amp; be hungry always. So of course I can get leaner but cannot stay there. Too painful. It has increased my recovery time from workouts but I'm thinking of going off of it since I am able to control my weight the same as with it or without it.. I am wondering if others do not get leaned out on his product.. I started it because I was so deficient that I had to recover for weeks most time between workouts and had trouble functioning in my. Life. So that is superior now. I thought it would help with fat loss but it does not for me
