Human Growth Hormone (HGH) represents one of the safest hormones on the market. Side effects of Human Growth Hormone do exist, but with responsible use they are rare and generally of very little concern. In fact, men and women can often use this hormone without the first concern. If this seems surprising, if you assumed the side effects of Human Growth Hormone were guaranteed, let’s consider what this compound is. HGH is not a foreign substance to the body. This is a hormone your body naturally produces and essentially needs. While it’s often hard to wrap your head around, the body is far more accustomed to HGH than say Aspirin. However, side effects of Human Growth Hormone most certainly exist, and it’s important we recognize them. With responsible use, most healthy individuals should not have a problem.
The most common side effects of Human Growth Hormone are water retention and headaches. Water retention can be very common during the early stages of use, especially around the wrist and ankles. Most users will, however, find the retention subsides as the weeks of use go on. Higher doses will cause greater water retention. Some people also report moderate joint pain. These represent the most common side effects of Human Growth Hormone.
The side effects of Human Growth Hormone can include carpal tunnel syndrome; this is normally due to water retention issues and is most commonly associated with high performance level doses. Such doses have also been shown to promote hypothyroidism (thyroid deficiency), we wouldn’t call it common but it can occur due to performance doses most commonly. The use of Liothyronine Sodium (Cytomel/T3) will remedy this issue if needed.
While uncommon there are possible severe side effects of Human Growth Hormone. However, while possible the severe side effects of Human Growth Hormone are tied to abuse and not standard responsible use. Those who abuse HGH may experience feet, hand and jaw growth or enlargement. Of greater concern, HGH abuse can lead to internal organ enlargement. Again, these side effects of Human Growth Hormone are tied to abuse. HGH can be used for long periods of time and safely; in fact, use can be indefinite. However long term use at a high dose may lead to the severe side effects of Human Growth Hormone.
The possible side effects of Human Growth Hormone are less common than the common side effects, but we wouldn’t call them all extremely rare. They are also possible with responsible use. Those who supplement with HGH may notice flu like symptoms early on in use, but such effects should dissipate within a few days and such effects are not all that common. Some may also experience respiratory infection (rare) nausea, dizziness and a numbness of the skin (rare). The side effects of Human Growth Hormone can also include short-term Type-2 Diabetes. This is due to the hormone’s ability to reduce insulin sensitivity and increase blood sugar. Those who are supplementing with performance level doses will be at the greatest risk. It is also possible, although not extremely common for the injected area to become irritated. Itching at the injection site or small lumps is possible and you may need to experience with injection sites to find the one that’s most comfortable for you.
