Side Effects and Dangers of Human Growth Hormone

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) has been shown in some studies to have side effects such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, Edema (swelling), Water Retention, Joint Pain, Gigantism (abnormal bone growth) and Bloating.

The symptoms listed for HGH abuse are typically a result of high doses, far beyond what is recommended.

People with cancer, or at high risk for cancer, or have a family history of a disease, especially prostate and reproductive cancer should be very cautious before undergoing HGH hormone replacement therapy, and discuss your medical condition and family history thoroughly and honestly with your physician.

Here’s why this is so important: Human Growth Hormone stimulates cell reproduction and regeneration, which may boost the growth of cancerous tissues and cells.

Long-term abuse of HGH can also cause the Pituitary gland to produce less HGH. The duration depends on the person, their lifestyle and the level of abuse.

Avoid Side Effects

   Numerous studies have shown side effects can be prevented by the slow initial administration of HGH, proper monitoring of levels and usage on a daily basis in what is called a low-dose, high-frequency method.

Typical Protocol of Human Growth Hormone

A standard protocol utilizing low doses has shown to have the best effects.

A standard protocol for someone over the age of 35, deficient in HGH / IGF-1, and showing signs of Andropause is approximately 1IU per day, with five days on (Monday through Friday using 1IU per day) and two days off (No HGH use on Saturday and Sunday).

Andropause is defined as male menopause, characterized by a collection of symptoms, including fatigue and a decrease in libido, experienced by some middle-aged men and attributed to a gradual decline in testosterone levels.

Other Possible Side Effects of HGH Abuse

Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy, administered under proper medical supervision for HGH deficiency (adult-onset growth hormone deficiency) is safe and will have few side effects when used correctly.

The risk of side effects increases when HGH is abused (taken in higher doses without any medical supervision).

Typically the most common side effect of the excess use of HGH is acromegaly (excess growth hormone).

This is a medical condition that begins with the abnormal growth of facial bone and connective tissue, leading to a changed appearance due to protruding jaw and enlarged eyebrow bones.

This condition also leads to an abnormal lengthening and growth of the hands and feet with an increased growth of hair all over the body.

Contrary to the alleged longevity properties of HGH increasing your life, this condition of excessive HGH will shorten life expectancy considerably.

Here are a few additional side effects of the excessive use of HGH…

  • Premature death (in case of acromegaly)
  • Heart enlargement (due to prolonged use of HGH. Usually irreversible)
  • Low blood sugar with risk of going into a diabetic coma
  • Excessive hair growth over the entire body
  • Excessive water retention
  • Liver damage
  • Thyroid damage

However, remember this: with professional, proper medical supervision, these side effects rarely occur.

And in the unlikely event they do, the HGH dosage is adjusted.

The takeaway? Don’t try this at home, on your own.

Only begin HGH replacement therapy under expert medical supervision.
