### There is no evidence of any beneficial effects of HGH in
non-deficient persons. Even the sarcopenia data are not highly
convincing. There is absolutely no indication that HGH prolongs
survival, and in fact, lifetime overexposure, in cases of pituitary
gigantism or acromegaly, tends to be associated with premature aging,
development of diabetes, and premature death. I know that there is a
lot of speculation and hype on this subject but I haven't seen any
double-blind studies in healthy adults confirming benefits.
