Risks of HGH injections

By | June 8, 2017

HGH injections are considered the in-thing now for people who can afford them. Notwithstanding that the price has gone down over the years, it is still very expensive for the vast majority of people, and this is still a risky procedure (for everything you pay). Is it worth it? Let’s look at the risks.

Till today, HGH injections are still not granted over the counter. You need a prescription for it. And you have to be supervised by a qualified doctor. Yes, you can buy HGH from unauthorized sources or fly to a neighboring country to get it, and then DIY, but is it all as good as it seems?

The number one risk of HGH injections is acromegaly. Acromegaly is a condition whereby your body exhibits the characteristics of a giant due to excessive HGH in the bloodstream. Think of prominent brows and a lower jaw like a Neanderthal, enlarged limbs, weakening of the heart (often leading to heart failure later on in life), expansion in height and weight, and carpal tunnel syndrome (numbness and uncontrolled tingling in the hands). Did you know that most giants have reduced lifespan as well?

There are some people who have a problem with their pituitary glands since they were born (like a tumor for example), and these people often have to deal with either excessive or inadequate growth hormone, leading to extreme cases of acromegaly, or dwarfism. Either way, these are not conditions you would want to bring on yourself.

Did you know that HGH is the one of the most important hormones in your body? So much so that it’s called an “umbrella hormone”, because of its influence on all the major other hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen.

Each and every hormone in the body does not function independently of itself, and depends on the others in a feedback loop. When HGH is increased unnaturally in the body, this throws the production of the other hormones completely off kilter and confuses this feedback loop. The feedback loop is controlled to a certain extent by the hypothalamus, and you risk damaging it by increasing growth hormone unnaturally.

The unnatural introduction of more HGH in the body also bypasses the pituitary gland, and if this goes on for an extended period of time, it may well handicap the gland’s proper functioning in the future. Not only will your pituitary “forget” to produce growth hormone on its own, but you may well be dependent on external HGH injections in the future.

All things considered, HGH injections are a risky and costly procedure that should only be undertaken with the legal approval and necessary supervision from a qualified doctor who has experience in administering growth hormone injections. The most natural way for anyone is to stimulate the pituitary gland to work on its own, via growth hormone releasers or secretagogues, such as GenF20 Plus.
