In a recent previous post I had written about the use of steroids to increase height and grow taller (located HERE). I reread the post and realized that it was lacking a lot on true content and useful facts.
I wanted to focus on the various types of steroids and growth hormonest that are in the market today being sold legally or illegally as some solution to the height increase seeker. For the person who still have their growth plates unfused, some of the products will work and some won’t. For the person who has their growth plates fused, most of the steroids and growth hormones types won’t work. For the adult who have the fused bones, the desire to use steroids or growth hormones to increase height is far more difficult. Most people who are questioned state that it is not possible to use steroids or hormones to gain height.
Let’s first go down the list to name all of the steroids which has already been said to contribute towards height. They were anavar (oxandrolone), dianabol (Methandrostenolone), synthroid, winstrol (stanozolol), and primobolan (methanolone acetate). Almost all of these compounds are known as non-estrogenic compounds. The general consensus between steroid users and endocrinologist is that the real hormone that causes the growth plates to close is estrogen. However ,most of the other hormones in our body can aromatize into estrogen, including testosterone. While testosterone have shown in some studies to increase one’s growth rate (because it really does accelerate one;s rate of bone growth) at least when it is first used, the extra amount of testosterone in one’s system can lead to an increased amount of estrogen from aromatization causing a premature closure of one’s plates.
(Note: My recent findings have shown that for men, Testosterone seems to have only positive benefits and little negative benefits while Estrogen is linked for men to only negative benefits and little positive benefits. So the message is to create a lifestyle where one has a high level of testosterone in ones body and a low level of estrogen)
The most commonly cited non-estrogenic steroid that does not aromatize into estrogen which leads to height increase claims is anavar. There have been scientific studies where the group administered with anavar over time did grow taller than the control group. Winstrol is supposed to be also non-estrogenic and can give a rise in calcium deposition. A stronger anti estrogen such as Arimidex will be much more effective as suggested by some people.In additon, Dianabol – methandrostenolone – has been prescribed to children and toddlers and made them gain weight and grow in height while they were on. I think they would have gotten the height anyway, but Dianabol – methandrostenolone – accelerated the process. I think that steroids that do not aromatise, does only accelerate the growth till the point of your biological maximum – quote from someone else. Steroids would work if you have lower then normal test levels but if its genetics or estrogen levels thats a cause for your height extra test will just speed up the plate sealing process.
One suggestion if one uses testosterone and letrozole at the same time, they could speed up height growth until they decide they are tall enough and want their plates to close.
Another suggestion was to take an AI to lower their estrogen levels, which would keep my growth plates open for longer. AIs have been used to increase height in early mid teens and should even work in late teens provided growth plates are not sealed. An AI with a couple IUs of HGH might get you a couple inches if ran for a year.
The last suggestion was that best bet would be to combine human growth hormone – somatropin – + aromatase inhibitor so you can try to grow past your limit. will cause internal organs to grow at large doses that you need, also larger bones, and will activate any pre dormant cancerous cells. hormones and height/size are totally different – quote from some guy
The list for growth hormone names are genotropin, somatropin, Omnitrope, Nutropin, Norditropin, Humatrope, HGH (human growth hormone), IGF-1.
Natural human growth hormone is produced from the pituitary gland. The hormone goes into the human liver to release the Insulin like Growth Factor complex (IGF-1s).
The human created and manufactured version of natural HGH is called somatropin made through recombinant DNA. Genotropin is a type and brand of somatropin which is rDNA derived received in injection form for used for the the purpose of assisting children who are in the extreme lower percentile of size and growth rate to push them closer to the average size range of the general population If taken daily for over a few years, the children’s growth rate increases and they often add a few extra inches. I had previous written a post about humatrope and linked to its website. Humatrope is used as a growth rate assistant for children who are still growing but are of the size in the extreme low percentile of the general population.
One of the hardest things about trying to get genotropin or somatropin by oneself is that a lot of fake HGH is sold on the internet. It is very difficult to get the real thing. Most people who want to get real synthetic human growth hormones choose to get them from places like Switzerland or South Korea. Even then, the cost of somatropin and genotropin is usually very high. A yearly usage of the HGH compound can run one up to $30,000 and one’s insurance policy will almost never cover the treatment so it is all out of pocket for the person who wants to try the therapy themselves. Most clinical dosages for somatropin and genotropin is around the 2.5-3.9 IU but some people try to take 10 IU dosage of genotropin to see what effect there is. One person stated that “3 IUs ED and a 1mg dex EOD for 6 months should result in a height increase of an inch or more if your growth plates have not calcified.
Me: The conclusion is this. From a paper written about a 6 year study done by Stanford Medical School where kids with Turner Syndrome were administered somatropin and/or oxandrolone, the conbinative effect of the growth hormone and steroid gave the most increase in height. The point is that the the steroid and growth hormone does work in increasing height, at least with children who are still growing and who are given real stuff and treated carefully with regular checkups. As for adults who can not go through traditional bone growth anymore, that is still inconclusive. Most bodybuilders and people who use steroids strongly push young children away from using steroids mainly for fear that the non fully developed bodies will have their endocrine system ruined for the rest of their life.
