Is it right to treat the growth hormone deficiency without addressing the Adrenaline and Thyroid Problem first? Also, what's the prognosis of GH deficiency in FMS patients? Is it curable once hypothalamus recovers? Thanks.

Answer

Although GH deficiency is very common in FMS, I rarely treat it, instead using the rest of SHINE to do so . As hypothlamic function increases, so does GH. Also, sleep, exercise and sex help increase GH--especially once the underlying SHINE issues are addressed.
