    How do I cycle off HGH?

    Hi, I've been taking HGH for around 3 years straight at around 4-5 IU per day. I want to cycle off it for a while as I'm getting kind of afraid it's contributing to my distended abdomen. What's the proper way to do this? Should I get off cold turkey or just try to a replacement dose (i.e. 2 IU before bed every night)? Any insight appreciated, thanks!

    Yeah Iíd imagine it would be contributing. I dont actually know shit about HGH but could you post a pic of your torso? Just curious

    Try a secretagogue like mk or ghrp. I'm not certain that gh is part of a negative feedback loop so I'd say just stop and use the secretagogue for a short spell.
    @maxmuscle1 what say you?

    There are not too many studies on long term AGHD(adult growth-hormone deficiency) a term you will hear more about in the next few years as they release long acting gh. I myself, would just stop and do what I normally do: get bloodwork, fix anything that is wrong on bloods. I would e careful as gh helps protect the joints/muscles producing extra collagen in the body. It may cause some issues with loss of strength, increased pain post workout, etc. Of course stimulating the pituitary gland by just powerlifting, high aminos , or secretogogues Mk677, sermorelin, -morelins could be used safely w/o any bad sides like acromegaly. I am wondering if you used thyroid or insulin or metformin during your long term use ? If not, your B/G levels would definitely contribute to a gut or distended belly (like you see in diabetics that donít diet correctly). Just get bloods, keep an eye on things. I like using a waist trainer, watching sugar intake and a lot of cardio. I have seen distention reversed in BB before.

    Good luck

    Would insolbolic (igf1) contribute to stomach distension since it lowers blood sugar or is the stomach caused by another mechanism? Just came off 18iu of serostim a day to see the the distension goes down
