Ive read online that HGH is good for crohns. I could use the build up and always react well to steroids so I am about to ask my doctor for this..anyone ever use it?

HGH = Human growth hormone. It's not a steriod in the same sense as predinsone, it's a protein, so it has to be injected like humira/remicade. There has only been one small study.

My 2 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with Crohn's. She is going to be receiving HGH in the next few years because she has Turner's Syndrome which inhibitis growth. We read that study about HGH and Crohn's and are really hoping that it helps her!
