Evaluation Tools

Your doctor and health care team will perform a series of blood and other diagmostic tests during the course of your GH treatment in order to monitor the effectiveness and performance of the treatment regimen. One of the beneficial effects of GH treatment is a loss of body fat, the conversion of your body composition to increased lean muscle, and decreased total fat.

One way to self monitor the progress that you are making through your GH therapy is with the use of the body mass index measurement. The body mass index (BMI) is the ratio of height and weight, and it is a reliable indicator of obesity.
