Also you might want to test her IGF-1 level. GH can be a delicate balance between proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory. Maybe there is a sweet spot to find. If it were me I would test now to see where she is at and then reset 8 weeks and go from thre depending on bloods and general wellness etc. for some guys I have helped there seems to be a sweet spot towards upper level of normal range for their age and higher than than there is achy joints and all the rest.GH can be pro-inflammatory. Any other symptoms?
I would pull it for 8 weeks and see where she is. In my view GH is more proinflammatory more in some than others. Since she has SLE it would make sense that the inflammatory nature could be more dramatic in her. Plus her disease is systemic. It can be somewhat unpredictable which systems show impact.
