Posted by: John | 2009/10/03

Are Bone growth and Hair growth hormones the same?

I am 16yrs old male and just 5.5ft,so i consulted a docter and he suggested me to take some growth hormones to increase my height with some exercises.

I also have high hair growth and slightly thick hair on my body and have just started to shave,I am worried if taking growth hormones may make my hair more darker,thicker and my hair growth may increase.

Hi there,

it would be best to ask the doctor who prescribed the hormone treatment about side effects and possible effects on body hair.
