Default HGH or testosterone

Does anyone know any doctors in the area of massachusetts that would help with getting HGH, if someone say had a hormone imbalance?

The same with testosterone. I have yet to get a testosterone test yet, but i think i should someday.

I'm sure you have a compounding pharmacy in Mass. They can usually give you some names of docs who prescribe bio-identical hormones.

Compounding Pharmacy

Following testing and/or demonstrated need, testosterone is commonly prescribed by PCPs in a number of forms (oral, buccal, patch, creme, injection, and implant). HGH may be a little tougher; it's not approved for many conditions, has a high side effect profile, and quite expensive - not something to mess with lightly.

Here's a link for compounding pharmacy in Mass.

You can do a search to find more.

My husband is on a bio-identical testosterone cream. He started at a low dose and worked up slowly. He had his blood serum testosterone, progesterone and estrodial levels checked before starting. Since he's been using the transdermal cream, he's been getting saliva tests to monitor his levels along with symptoms. Our insurance won't pay for the bio-identical testosterone or the saliva testing.
