Hi Guys, I have a son 7 years old, and he is shorter than his same old children and weak (little muscle, he’s not fat, he is quite lean but without muscle). One year ago, I took him to visit doctors, and made some testing, after that we were told that he was deficient of human growth hormone (HGH). And then the doctor recommended to do HGH injections every day, and we did it for a year.
The HGH injection worked very well in the year, my son’s height increased around 11 centimeters during the injection, that’s quite good. But my wife worried about the side effect of the injection, then we stopped the injection in October 2022. After that, my son only increased 2 centimeters in 8 months, it’s quite bad.
Today, I saw a article at https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/11-ways-to-increase-hgh , saying that intermittent fasting can boost the HGH naturally. So I was thinking to use it to boos my son’s HGH level. I’m a 9 months of ketoer already, so I know that the best way to do fasting is to do it with keto diet together, because keto can reduce the hunger for food.
One of my major hesitating is that, my son is not fat, he is quite lean without muscle, if I make him fasting with keto, I worry if that would make him more weak.
I know everyone here is not doctors, don’t worry, any information or recommendation will be appreciated! You will not get any law trouble by giving information, don’t worry!
