Is HGH Harmful?

Human growth hormone, popularly known as HGH, is a naturally occurring hormone in the body. It plays a role in regulating the body's natural processes, including cell reproduction and growth. While it can be taken as an injection or supplement to increase muscle strength and energy levels, some people worry about its potential effects on health. In this article, we'll explore whether or not taking HGH is harmful.

HGH is generally considered safe when used in prescribed amounts by adults over 18 years of age. The most common side effects are mild and include: headaches, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. Generally these side effects will go away if doses are decreased or discontinued altogether.

However, long-term use may cause more serious health concerns such as increased risk of certain types of cancer, liver disorders and heart complications. Studies conducted on mice have suggested that high doses of HGH can lead to increased cancerous cells in organs such as the liver and kidneys. On the other hand, there have been no conclusive studies on humans to suggest any direct link between HGH use and adverse health outcomes.

It's important to note that athletes often take higher than recommended doses of HGH outside the supervision of a medical professional—which can cause serious harm due to the drug's potent nature. People should never take more than their doctor prescribes for them. Additionally, pregnant women should avoid using any kind of hormonal supplement due to potential risks for child development issues.

Overall, taking HGH supplements or injections inappropriately can lead to very dangerous consequences if misused or overdosed upon; however—when taken properly under a physician’s guidance—there is minimal risk associated with it being harmful to your health.
