Chicago IL HGH Costs Vs. Mexico & Costa Rica

Residents of Chicago Illinois can lower HGH prescriptions rates 60% or more. Approximately $550 per month for complete HGH Therapy with non-generic “premium-brand” HGH.

Currently all residents of Chicago interested in the Norditropin HGH program must travel to Costa Rica for program inception. Mexico currently is out of stock of many medications like Norditropin HGH. 

Residents throughout Chicago and its surrounding communities have looked to Tijuana Mexico and beautiful Costa Rica for great deals on high-quality elective medical and dental procedures for decades. For the past 5 years, the dramatic rise of internet and social media information sharing has resulted in significant growth opportunities in medical tourism between Mexico, Costa Rica and the United States. The primary reason for this is the price of medical goods and services, which has skyrocketed in the USA and has created dramatic price disparities among the USA and nearby countries.

Chicago is an international hub for finance, culture, commerce, education, technology, telecommunications, and transportation. It is home to the Chicago Board of Trade, a futures exchange responsible for approximately 20% of all commodities contracts traded throughout the world. O’Hare International Airport has convenient daily flights to San Diego California for our Tijuana Mexico clinic and to Costa Rica by connections through Miami, Dallas, and Ft. Lauderdale. 

Residents living in Chicago who are prescribed HGH therapy are paying 2 or 3 times the amount for their prescription HGH each month. The same brands by the same manufacturers are available in Mexico or Costa Rica for about one-third of the price.

This page documents the unfair price disparity for this increasingly popular treatment modality for adult HGH deficiencies brought on by age and lifestyle.

We are a leading international age management group with treatment centers in the USA and abroad. We have US citizen doctors licensed in the US and in leading international medical tourism destinations like Costa Rica and Mexico.

We offer the best discounts for premium brand-name pharmaceutical HGH therapy like Norditropin, Saizen, Omnitrope, and Humatrope.

Some of our therapies in TJ Mexico are one-third the price as in Chicago Illinois.

{Last updated February 2023}

Chicago HGH Pricing Vs. Anti-Aging and Wellness

Osco RX Norditropin HGH $1,288.48

Anti-Aging and Wellness HGH $550.00

Costa Rica HGH Pen $550.00 In Stock

The map below depicts the significant price differences for growth hormone in the USA versus Mexico and Costa Rica. For the same medication by the same manufacturer, Norditropin HGH is approximately 1/3 the price in Mexico and Costa Rica.

How Much Does Growth Hormone Cost in Mexico?

The rate for a Norditropin HGH pen which contains 10MG and 30IU of treatment is between $450-$550. For many undergoing HGH therapy as part of an HGH deficiency and age management program in the US, this is one-third the amount paid in Chicago.

The reason HGH is nearly 3-times more expensive in the United States than in Mexico and Costa Rica is the result of pricing models created by big pharma for a name-brand prescription drug sold in the USA. There is no difference in the medication. The medications are the same and from the same manufacturers.  

How Does One Qualify for HGH Therapy?

There are many factors that go into determining if HGH therapy is a good option for adult patients. Unfortunately for those living in the USA, it’s more determined by the size of the person’s pocketbook. Many among the rich and famous are already using HGH for their own medical lifestyle choices. Some of these people include Suzanne Somers, Sylvester Stallone, and billionaire tech entrepreneur Peter Thiel

To qualify for a deficiency, patients must undergo comprehensive blood testing, a medical examination, and submit a detailed medical intake questionnaire.

Should I Take Metformin on HGH Therapy?

Metformin is the first line of treatment for adult-onset diabetes and is used in some cases for prediabetics. Some doctors may use it as a weight-loss medication. It is currently being studied for anti-aging purposes by leading scientists. See <TAMES Clinical Trials> study. 

Famous Harvard anti-aging researcher David Sinclair (Comments on Tom Bilyeu YouTube channel) and others are taking metformin for age management, not as a diabetic medication. 

Dr. Sinclair also supplements with NAD+ (NMN) for its benefits related to longevity and mitochondrial wellness.  

Anti-Aging and epigenetics (Understanding Epigenetics NIH). Recently a small research study was published regarding key aging biomarkers being reversed by 2 years or more after taking HGH and Metformin over 12 months <Aging Cell – Reversal of Aging>, [Aging Cell – Reversal of Aging pdf]. 

We do not prescribe Metformin for anti-aging purposes. However, we do follow evidence-based research related to the standard American diet and its influence on glycemic variability and proper glucose control. 

Let’s face it, approximately 70% of the population is overweight or obese. Most of these patients are potentially near diabetic (prediabetic) or will be within a matter of 10-15 years.

Reference this one Japanese study on forecasting type II diabetes 10 years in advance. Other research going all the way back to the 1970s suggests the same thing. Detection of Diabetes In Situ, by Dr. Kraft, MD.

We approach health and wellness through integrative medicine. Our physicians pay close attention to various blood biomarkers which may indicate poor glucose control. In those instances, we will assess each individual’s health, and if they should undergo a strict lifestyle modification program. In some cases, Metformin may be a good option for the patient.  

Is it Legal for Me to Take HGH?

Our HGH programs are prescribed by licensed physicians in the US and abroad who use best practices for evaluating, prescribing and treating patients with HGH.

Our priority is on patient safety and optimal wellness. We do comprehensive blood testing, complete medical intake, and in-clinic exams. Once it is determined between the patient and their doctor that growth hormone therapy can be prescribed, we continue to monitor, re-examine, and adjust protocols periodically to ensure proper treatment dosages, patient safety, and treatment efficacy.

Is HGH for Sale? Can I Buy HGH?

No, absolutely not. HGH is available by prescription only. It is very rare for USA-based insurance companies to authorize reimbursement for HGH prescriptions. So, each patient will pay for their HGH therapy as an out-of-pocket medical expense, whether in the United States or at one of our international treatment centers. 

We strongly discourage patients from buying HGH from an international online pharmacy. Much of the growth hormone bought in this manner is likely counterfeit or not pharmaceutical grade HGH

Much of the generic HGH sold on the street is not 100% bioidentical. The risk of taking that form of HGH is your body may recognize it as a foreign substance leading to antibody resistance. Your body can build a tolerance to it if it is not pharmaceutical grade HGH. Always use brand-name pharmaceutical grade HGH for any type of growth hormone therapy.

We only prescribe bioidentical growth hormone(s) from the leading pharmaceutical companies. These include companies like:

Growth Hormone and Anti-Aging

A new but small 2019 HGH / Metformin research study published in the Aging Cell journal has been making headlines in the news. Probably not since the landmark HGH study conducted by Dr. Rudman in 1990, has a single growth hormone study received so much buzz. 

Let’s first step back in time to the Dr. Rudman study released in 1990. This is when famous actors and actresses like Sylvester Stallone and Suzanne Somers began announcing their personal use of human growth hormone and other bioidentical hormones for age management purposes. Essentially the Rudman study determined the following <Click here>:

    • Men 61-80 years old injected HGH daily over a 6-month period.
    • No major adjustment to lifestyle was enforced.
    • Improved lean muscle mass of approximately 8.8% was measured.
    • The reduction of body fat was reduced by almost 15%, while their overall weight remained the same. 
    • Bone density increased by 7% or more.
    • Skin thickness increased by over 7%.

For Dr. Rudman New England Journal of Medicine HGH Study <Click here>.

Now, researchers in California have observed key aging markers by reversing age by almost 3 years.

Researchers publish new anti-aging findings discovered when studying improving immune function. Treatment consisted of HGH, metformin, and DHEA.

These anti-aging therapies and protocols are unproven nor have they been evaluated by the FDA. This information is educational in nature. Always seek the advice of your physician before considering if this type of therapy is something you should consider for yourself. 

Is HGH from Mexico & Costa Rica Safe?

When HGH is prescribed by one of our doctors in the US, Costa Rica, or Mexico, the medication is safe. It is the same brand that is sold in the USA. All our HGH prescriptions come from major pharmaceutical companies. They come from registered pharmacies or distributors in their respective countries. 

What's the Most Popular HGH Brand and Its Cost?

Norditropin is the most popular and most prescribed brand of HGH. It is manufactured by Novo Nordisk. The company is headquartered in Denmark. Novo Nordisk is a global leader in diabetic and human growth hormone medications.

Sensible Arguments for HGH Replacement

This video is a reasonable argument related to the replenishment of HGH replacement therapy in adults.

Dr. Klatz of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine discusses the modest and appropriate replenishment of HGH deficiencies just as one would do for thyroid, estrogen, testosterone or any other deficiency. 

Dr. Klatz discusses how it is a safe therapy and has been used safely for more than 50 years throughout the world.

FAQ 1.05.2

A typical month's supply will cost $550. The same HGH from the same manufacturer in the USA will cost 3 times more.

The leading brand of human growth hormone now in Costa Rica, Mexico, and the United States is Norditropin.

Norditropin is the only leading pharmaceutical brand of growth hormone that comes premixed and can go without refrigeration.

It can go 14-21 days without refrigeration due to the proprietary preservation technology of Novo Nordisk.

HGH is three times or more in the United States than in many other countries. The main reasons for this are 1) pharmaceutical middlemen called "Pharmacy Benefit Managers" (PBMs) and the list-pricing strategies set by big-pharma companies.Please see for more information on Pharmacy Benefit Managers work in the USA on our "why is HGH so expensive in the USA?" You can ask Google, Siri, or Alexa and our page will be at the top of the list.
We only prescribe name-brand "FDA Approved" pharmaceutical HGH from major manufacturers like Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, and Merck.In the modern era with Google search and social media, these black market online internet pharmacies are rapidly exposed.We use real doctors and we promote our doctors. You get to know them and they get to know you. They are professionals and they want you to be healthy so that you tell others about our services.Unfortunately, the United States health care system is broken. It's too expensive for insurance to cover HGH treatments, so they've made it extremely difficult for patients to qualify. Metabolic health related to hormone decline with aging is not yet supported by the U.S. health care system.Insurance companies developed more on serving acute injuries, such as serving the needs of patients suffering from acute injury either by accident or a chronic condition. Insurance companies are less enthusiastic about metabolic wellness related to hormone decline, insulin resistance, and obesity. This leads to accelerated age-related chronic diseases like heart attacks, cancers, diabetes, and strokes. To a large degree, it is the primary reason health care expenditures amount to over 17% of the US GDP.We operate very openly on the internet and through promotional material like print media. We've advertised in Airline Flight Magazines, major Newspapers and on Television. We've been caring and treating medical tourists since 2013 from all over the United States and Canada.We only prescribe the same FDA approved pharmaceutical HGH brands that you find in the United States. The only difference is the USA must pay 2 or 3 times the price. Why? Because of big pharma's global pricing models and the problematic insurance model which exists in the United States. Both Republicans and Democrats have demonized big pharma for its inflated pricing, but nothing ever seems to get resolved. Recently, some states have begun to take action. Utah recently passed "Right to Shop" legislation which allows its public employees to buy legally lower-cost prescription medications in Tijuana Mexico. Click the link. It is widely reported in some of the press. Other states are looking at similar legislation: . Mexico has very good control of their legal prescription drug programs. We work closely with only the leading pharmaceutical companies. The process has a complete and safe chain of custody when it comes to name-brand prescription pharmaceuticals. 

According to the Norditropin website, all Norditropin products must be refrigerated (36°F to 46°F) prior to first use.

Do not freeze and avoid direct light.

After the first injection, the pens can either be stored outside of the refrigerator (up to 77°F) for use for 21 days.

If stored in the refrigerator after first use the Norditropen HGH pen will last for 4 weeks. The temperature range should be between 36°F and 46°F.

Never place your pens in a freezer.

No, it is not illegal to use human growth hormone with your doctor's prescription.HGH is an approved medication for certain medical conditions such as an HGH deficiency. It must be prescribed by your doctor.Border patrol, as well as the FDA, require international travelers to carry their doctor's prescription and keep the medication in its original packaging.
HGH begins working almost immediately. Most long-term improvements are seen within 3-6 months.Men given HGH from ages 61-81 were given HGH over a 6 month period. At the end of the six months, they had approximately 15% body fat loss, an 8.8% increase in lean muscle mass, and an increase in bone mineral density.
Most adults on our program range between 1-2 IU between 3-5 days per week.Common protocols call for one daily injection each evening 5-days per week. However, some research shows similar benefits may be achieved from a less frequent dosing schedule of only 3 days per week.Most adults on HGH replacement therapy will settle in between 1 and 2 IUs for each injection.HGH is further enhanced by following an intermittent fasting protocol.And for those who may be overweight and have some degree of insulin resistance, metformin may be prescribed. Berberine is also a good over-the-counter substitute.Most individuals on a 3-day injection dose will see a slower degree of fat loss. But when combined with intermittent fasting, metformin, and/or berberine, results on fat loss will accelerate in most individuals.
A one month supply of prescription HGH in Costa Rica will cost approximately $550 USD per month for Norditropin Growth Hormone.
HGH in the United States generally is three times the amount in Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama.Typical price for one month's supply of HGH at a U.S. pharmacy is approximately $1,250 USD.Only name-brand (non-generic) versions of growth hormone are legal. Name-brand prescription medications are generally always 3 times more than in other countries because of the retail price set by large pharmaceutical companies and middle men known as Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs). See our video at the top of this page.
Yes. As long as you have a prescription. If you are traveling internationally you will want a letter from the doctor. We have all of the legal paperwork from the major manufacturers so if TSA or US Border Patrol is concerned, you can show them the information.Keep in mind, according to the Center for Disease Control, most adults over 40 years of age are on 2 or more prescription medications. International travel would cease to function if you were not afforded the basic human right of crossing borders with your prescribed medications.Always carry your prescription and your letter from the doctor to avoid confusing border professionals and TSA.
No. HGH is not an anti-aging medication. What HGH does is it supports the growth pathways in support of normal energy metabolism.Growth hormone works closely with the regenerative growth cycle of your body. However, it is now much more understood that this energy state is not ideal 100% of the time.In order for patients to see the best benefits related to anti-aging at the cellular level, they need to understand what the research on longevity and aging shows.The body operates best with it goes through natural anabolism and catabolic states (i.e., feast and famine). This reproduces a growth, cleanse phase at the cellular level.HGH used in combination with metformin, and DHEA, did show an age reversal in epigenetic markers. The research was published in 2019. It is linked to on this web page.However, we think this study can be improved upon by mimicking some of the new research by Dr. Sinclair of Harvard and Dr. Valter Longo of USC. They both promote the benefits of triggering mechanisms that influence AMPK and mTOR. To key elements of the longevity pathways. They do this with time restricted feeding and in some instances metformin.
Currently nearly 590,000 Americans die each year from some form of cancer. What doesn't give you cancer?Probably one of the most associated element we would guess is related to cancer is poor energy metabolism.One of the major reasons HGH is criticized for potentially promoting cancer in adults is that it increases IGF-1. Elevated IGF-1 is often associated with those with cancer. It's an insulin like growth factor, so for a tumor, it is simply assumed its going to feed growth.To some extent, we agree. In an overfed, processed-food rich lifestyle, with poor glucose regulation, we think it is a reasonable fear people should have. But with that said, if you follow the recent works of researchers into aging and longevity like Dr. David Sinclair and Dr. Valter Longo, you learn that we need to be attentive to the AMPK/mTOR pathway.If you go to our Metfomin Blog page, you can learn a little about this pathway as well as how metformin is being studied as an anti-aging drug because of its ability to regulate this pathway for those eating and living the standard American lifestyle.Our goal is to help you understand as best you can what modern science is saying about this and its role in cancer. We are no longer living in the 1990s and this information is much better understood than ever before.With that said, we recognize there is much more research required to draw any conclusions. What we can say is that cancer is a big problem in the world, especially the United States. Those who are in better shape, have a better body composition, and have excellent blood markers are less likely to get cancer. Our role as a medical treatment center is to help you achieve this goal. We want to see your risk factors for all these age-related metabolic diseases decline.
