Weight Loss Study Summary
A controlled dose of growth hormone may help people who are obese lose weight and maintain the energy to exercise, according to recent weight loss research from Saint Louis University.

Weight Loss Study Background
When people are obese, the amount of growth hormone in their bodies drops. Growth hormone may help control appetite and speed up the metabolism to burn calories. Without the right amount of growth hormone, the body accumulates fat and loses muscle mass, which may sap the energy to exercise.

Weight Loss Study Methods
Thirty-nine volunteers who were about 40 percent overweight participated in the study. All participants met with a registered dietitian monthly and were encouraged to slowly lose weight by exercising and reducing their daily caloric intake by 500 calories.

Weight Loss Study Results
People who took growth hormone lost an average of slightly more than five pounds of body weight. This weight loss was all due to the loss of body fat; they did not lose any muscle mass. Most of the fat loss was in the abdominal area. There were also improvements in the good cholesterol HDL, which may have a long benefit in protecting the people from heart disease. The group that received the human growth hormone lost weight, but researchers aren't sure of the reason - whether they had a decrease in appetite or they had an increase in energy because they kept up their muscle mass and were able to exercise.

Weight Loss Study Conclusion
The findings are significant because obesity is a major health risk in the United States, affecting as much as 30 percent of the population. Future weight loss studies of growth hormone may suggest whether the drug could help in weight loss by itself or when used with another medication that has been approved for weight loss therapy for obesity.

In the past when doctors used growth hormone as a medicine to restore the body levels, the doses were too high. People had side effects and did not want to continue the therapy. In this weight loss study, growth hormone was given at a more balanced dose and people lost weight, which was entirely due to loss of fat.
