I am on a diet that encourages me to leave 5 hours between meals so that the body can secrete the natural growth hormone. If I snack between meals insulin will be released and stop the hgh. I am injecting Lantus at night. Will the continuous release of lantus stop the body from produceing hgh?
I'm not sure whether Lantus (insulin) have any effect on HGH, but HGH can affect naturally produced insulin (I'm not sure about injected insulin though). You may need to monitor changes in eating habit etc., to see how your body will react.
Please see the paragraph below.
Carbohydrate metabolism: Growth hormone is one of a battery of hormones that serves to maintain blood glucose within a normal range. Growth hormone is often said to have anti-insulin activity, because it supresses the abilities of insulin to stimulate uptake of glucose in peripheral tissues and enhance glucose synthesis in the liver. Somewhat paradoxically, administration of growth hormone stimulates insulin secretion, leading to hyperinsulinemia.
