    When I worked for the medical division at Eli Lilly and Company, I was assigned to their prescription testosterone product and human growth hormone product.  In the critical care field, human growth hormone is used to treat muscle atrophy or to boost appetite.  I teach college nutrition courses and several of my students have asked about these drugs…so I have added a talk to educate coaches and teens/young adults about the health problems associated with their use.
