I am interested in the claims made by the GHR product, but I have Kidney Disease (PKD), and would like to know about it's safety for me. Can you help with any contraindications for PKD patients?

There are many Growth Hormone "releasing" preparations/formulas on the market. None of them work to produce a sustained release of growth hormone. Only real growth hormone (which is injectible) actually give the full benefits of growth hormone therapy. Given in proper dose, there should be no problems vis-a-vis kidney disease.
