Dear Dr Braverman

I write on behalf of a friend who has a forthcoming IVF cycle in Melbourne. She has low AMH and due to previously diagnosed autoimmune issues with her kidneys she will be on prednisolone. It has been suggested that she consider HGH (human growth hormone) for the AMH, low egg quality issues. She is concerned that HGH may in fact boost the immune response when she is suppressing with prednisolone.

What are you general thoughts on HGH? Is it compatible on an immune cycle?

Many thanks for your time.

Dr. Braverman

That question would have to be posed to those doctors treating the kidney disease. It certainly would help with the low AMH.
