Health Risks to Using Human Growth Hormone

hGH Health Risks

Brief Overview of hGH

Just as testosterone is safe and well-tolerated when part of a TRT protocol, Human Growth Hormone (HGH) can be administered safely, when medically indicated under qualified clinical supervision. However, there are health risks associated with the use of HGH when it is not medically necessary or if it comes from dubious origin. These risks include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Pain in joints and muscle tissue
  • Edema (swelling) in the arms and legs
  • Increased risk of insulin resistance
  • Gynecomastia, swelling of breast tissue in men

According to the Mayo Clinic, the use of HGH, when it is not medically necessary, could possibly lead to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. The research on the association between HGH and these conditions is not conclusive, perhaps due to the fact that mostly short-term studies have been conducted on healthy adults who have taken HGH. As a result, the consequences of using HGH over long time periods have not been fully examined. Current research does imply that older adults may be at a higher risk than younger adults.

Beware of HGH Advertisements

There is a sea of nonsense and false advertising when it comes to HGH. A simple search engine query for HGH yields hundreds of results for HGH in pill form, for example. These claims are outright fraudulent. When HGH is prescribed by a physician, it is always by means of injection. The HGH is injected subcutaneously (under the skin). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved any use of HGH in pills or tablets.

Be wary when you search for HGH on the Internet! You will likely encounter sites that advertise that their products consist of forms of HGH that are just as effective when taken in pill or tablet as the human growth hormone administered by physicians. These websites are making bogus claims; the advertising is false. Likewise, homeopathic remedies that claim to provide the same results as HGH are unproven and should be ignored.

Bottom line: Seek the advice of experienced practitioners, such as the healthcare professionals at Virility, Inc. before making a decision to take human growth hormone.
