    or have never had your human growth hormone levels checked?

    If it is a high %age I will then believe that this is the root of most or all of symptoms..

    HGH is to humans as oil is to the combustion engine..

    I strongly suspect my levels to be low to absent

    I will have my results for HGH levels by august 7th 2014

    That is interesting you bring this up and my endo tested my HGH twice (by blood test) and both times it was low. He said there is a very elaborate, time consuming test which confirms if it is really low and this test is required by insurance companies (in the U.S.) before HGH shots can be given. I never pursued this test as he found I had thyroid issues and we decided to treat that first.

    I do not remember what the elaborate test is called but has anyone here done it and in regards to CFS diagnosis, is it worth the effort?
