Look younger with HGH!!

Dr. Jeya Prakash, a Harley Street plastic surgeon plans to sell a controversial anti-ageing drug that he claims to have made him and his wife “look years younger”.//

He asserts that human growth hormone (HGH) has improved his memory and removed wrinkles, and made his wife, Nanthini, 48, look young enough to be his daughter.

HGH reversed “10-20 years of ageing” in elderly men, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1990. As a result, in spite of no official approval, the sales of HGH rose to £400million a year.

Yesterday, doctors announced that they would NOT recommend HGH to adults wanting to look younger.

The Sun’s doctor Carol Cooper said: “Growth hormone is very potent and it’s not licensed for this use. It’s not even licensed for use for mild growth deficiency.”

According to her, the likely side effects included headaches, increased pressure inside the brain, fluid retention, ankle swelling and pains in muscles and joints.

Mr Prakash said: "If you read the literature, you see the risk is tiny and typically associate
