I believe we all know tha caution should govern in these cases: taking drugs is very often a trade-off and there are some hazards of unwanted collateral effects. First of all, do we really need HGH, is our IGF-1 so low, are we metabolically healthy or not, and so on. In that study there has not been a control arm. There are probably no doubts that in some subjects that cocktail might be beneficial, the hallmark of ''safe eligibility' to the treatment should be specified though.
