What are the Common Side Effects of the Human Growth Hormone?

Last month, I posted about the benefits of HGH pills. Now to balance things out, here are the side effects you must know about HGH. Remember that it’s always best to take supplements and medications in moderation.

What is HGH?

HGH or Human Growth Hormone is medically referred to as the master hormone because of the many health benefits it can provide. HGH is especially known for its great anti-aging effects. A lot of HGH products are available on the market these days. While it is true that some HGH products are safe, it still pays to know the HGH side effects to avoid critical health risks. The occurrence of side effects depends on the amount of HGH taken and the way it is used.

What are its side effects?

  • Acromegaly – A medical condition that may cause premature death, acromegaly starts with an excessive growth of connective tissue and facial bone, which results in a change in appearance due to eyebrow bones and protruding jaw. Moreover, a person with acromegaly experiences an increased hair growth all over the body as well as an unusual growth of the hands and feet.
  • Enlargement of the heart – This is unfortunately irreversible.
  • Other HGH side effects
    • Hypoglycemia or lowering of blood sugar
    • Increased water retention
    • Liver damage
    • Thyroid damage
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Damaged pituitary gland

As it is, using HGH is not dangerous. Side effects only happen when HGH products are taken without knowing first the right dosage and the how long these should be used. It is recommended that people should not take high doses of HGH (especially without advice from a doctor) so that the risk of HGH side effects will not increase. Also, it is best to consult a doctor before using any HGH product.
