HGH Treatment, Tijuana
US residents flock to Tijuana for lower-cost medical services. Services range from dental work to purchasing lower priced name brand pharmaceuticals. Utah and other states are adding international markets like Tijuana, Mexico to their public employee health plans.
HGH Treatment Tijuana Mexico is 1/3 the Cost of USA for Norditropin HGH
Many name-brand pharmaceutical medications (non-generics) are one-third of the cost in Mexico (and other countries) compared to the United States. The US government estimates 1 million people in California alone cross into Mexico annually for healthcare services. Reference Link: <US Trade Trends – Medical Tourism>.
These are remarkable times. The proliferation of the internet and social media provides patients access to pricing information previously unavailable. Consumers can search and find bargains for their health and wellness needs in international destinations close to home.
Residents throughout the United States have looked to Tijuana Mexico for great deals on high-quality elective medical and dental procedures for decades. Over the past 5 years, the dramatic rise of medical information on the internet and social media has resulted in significant growth in medical tourism between the United States and Mexico. The primary reason for this is the exploding cost of healthcare services in the United States.
High-quality medical alternatives continue to grow internationally, especially in key medical tourism destinations like Tijuana, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia.
The United States spends more than any other country on healthcare each year and it’s accelerating at an unsustainable rate.
Reference: Johns Hopkins – <US Health Care Spending Among The Highest>
The researchers at Johns Hopkins determined that the higher overall health care spending in the U.S. was due mainly to higher prices—including higher drug prices, higher salaries for doctors and nurses, higher hospital administration costs and higher prices for many medical services.
Patients in the US currently prescribed HGH treatment can benefit from getting their prescriptions abroad. HGH like Norditropin is around $450 in Mexico. The same Norditropin HGH is near $1,300 in the USA.

For premium brand HGH like Norditropin by Novo Nordisk, a typical adult patient will be looking at $2000 monthly in the Burbank area. See recent US price level directly below.
Note: Prices are close estimates based on typical patient averages. Minor rate adjustments may occur depending on dosage and any additional medications required. The typical patient will see a rate very close to those mentioned in this table.
Initial programs of 90-days minimum are generally recommended to observe measurable improvements in body composition, fat loss, energy levels, and exercise intensity. We aim to see improvements in age-related chronic disease markers and longevity markers when the proper lifestyle of diet and exercise is followed once deficiencies are improved.

Glendale California HGH Pricing Example

Rite Aid RX Norditropin HGH $1,292.22
Tijuana Mexico Anti-Aging and Wellness HGH $450.00
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 states, this is one-third the amount paid in Burbank, just a few hours away.
The reason HGH is more expensive in the United States than in Mexico and Costa Rica is the result of pricing models created by big pharma for non-generic brands sold in the USA. There is no difference. 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> study. Famous Harvard anti-aging researcher David Sinclair 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. 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 <Reference Link>, [Download 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.
We concentrate heavily on 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.
US-based' Cost Alternatives for USA Patients
If you are a current patient of US-based, Healthgains, NuMale, or another popular US-based age management treatment center and paying over $1,000 monthly for your HGH therapy, then it’s time to consider your alternatives.
We can match and/or improve upon your existing protocols for less. No matter how affluent we become, no one wants to pay two or three times the price for treatment for the same medications.
US-based’ Cost Alternatives – Benefits with our programs:
- Our initial consultation fee $550, US-based’ is around $4,000 or more for HGH programs and testing.
- No unnecessary and expensive VO2 Max testing which can be estimated with a Fitbit or alternative smartwatch.
- No risky or expensive DEXA scans. These emit low energy radioactive waves into the body that may damage your mitochondria at the cellular level. Mitochondria are the powerhouse of energy metabolism which is what we are trying to improve upon in the first place. If you’re not at risk for bone demineralization, avoid these.
- Most of our patients on a typical age management program which includes HGH will invest around $550 per month for their treatment.
- Name brand HGH like Norditropin. Norditropin comes premixed and in the famous Norditropin self-contained HGH Injection Pen. No mixing required. No refrigeration required for up to 21 days.
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 exam. 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 to ensure patient safety, benefits 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 HGH prescriptions. So, each patient will pay for HGH therapy as an out-of-pocket medical expense.
We strongly discourage patients from buying HGH on the street or from an international online pharmacy. Much of the growth hormone bought in this manner is likely counterfeit or not pharmaceutical grade HGH.
HGH is a very delicate hormone and it is difficult to produce. For years leading big-pharma laboratories were only capable of producing a close version of HGH in the lab. That type of HGH was 192 amino acid structure. True HGH is a 191 amino acid protein.
Much of the generic HGH sold on the street is not 100% bioidentical. The risk of taking 192 amino acid HGH is your body may recognize it is not 100% identical, leading to antibody resistance which will reduce its efficacy after a few weeks. Your body can build a tolerance to it if it is not pharmaceutical grade HGH.
We only prescribe bioidentical growth hormone(s) from the leading pharmaceutical companies. These include companies like:
Growth Hormone and Anti-Aging Controversy
Okay, now the good news. 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 publically announcing their 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.
- 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 over 7%.

Now, researchers in California have observed key aging markers by reversing age by almost 3 years.
These therapies and protocols are not proven nor have they been evaluated by the FDA. This information is scientific 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.
How do I get Started?
It’s best to fill in our contact form or call us direct. This enables us to discuss your specific situation in more detail and determine the best treatment center for your care.
Before any treatment program is recommended, patients must complete a medical history questionnaire, receive comprehensive blood testing, and meet with the physician. Blood testing can be done at our treatment centers or at a local Quest Diagnostic diagnostic location.
Cost Benefits of the HGH with us
Let’s face it, for many HGH is too expensive. Unless you are a Hollywood A-lister or billionaire tech entrepreneur, it isn’t a viable option unless you seek treatment abroad.
We operate age management treatment centers in the US and in other countries. This enables us to treat at far lower rates than other age management groups like US-based. We can offer HGH therapies at our international centers for 60% less, for those willing to work with one of our US trained international doctors and treatment centers.
Traveling with Prescription Medications
Lifestyle Recommendations while on Therapy
Avoid fad diets and processed foods. If weight loss is needed, we prefer to use intermittent fasting, fasting-mimicking dieting, or the ketogenic diet. We like to see patients get into healthy nutritional ketosis periodically to support the beneficial role of cell apoptosis and autophagy.
- We discourage smoking and heavy drinking. For those who wish to continue to drink, we recommend refraining from alcoholic beverages with sweetened mixers or that are high in carbohydrates. Red wine and clear alcohols generally have less impact on glycemic variability, and this will help while striving to improve body composition.
- Eat whole foods and avoid processed foods.
- Avoid fruit juices and other types of sugary beverages. Many of these so-called healthy juices are packed with sugary-carbohydrates that elevate blood sugars and insulin response, making fat loss more difficult.
