Unfortunately, a number of individuals, mainly athletes and bodybuilders, have turned to growth hormone injections to accelerate muscle growth for enhanced physique.
The prevalent use of the HGH drug for non-medical reasons has long been a concern not only for the medical community, but sporting organizations around the globe.
How does HGH affect the body? There is no doubt that HGH injections do provide a number of benefits to individuals diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. Growth hormone injections can promote and facilitate:
These benefits are often seen with growth hormone therapy given to someone with medically defined growth hormone deficiencies caused by damage or disease to the pituitary gland.
Growth hormone manufactured and secreted by the pituitary gland triggers the release of growth hormone factors from the liver. It is this process that contributes to the growth, replication, and proliferation as well as differentiation in numerous types of cells in the body.
But is using an HGH drug safe when growth hormone levels are already adequate?
The medical community discourages the use of prescription-only HGH injections for nonmedical reasons including bodybuilding, athletic performance, anti-aging, or weight loss.
Misuse and abuse of an HGH injections is bad enough, but stacking or cycling HGH with anabolic steroids in any form can severely increase the risk of serious side effects and adverse reactions.
Athletes believe that growth hormone is safer than anabolic steroid use, at least in regard to potential side effects. While that may be true, it’s not true for everyone. Some side effects HGH abuse are reversible when the drug is stopped, but others are permanent. Allegations were made against Peyton Manning for taking human growth hormone, but no HGH drug test was publicly released.
One study focused on just over 230 young, male weightlifters. Approximately 27 of them reported that they did use illegal HGH, and they also admitted to combining use of HGH with other anabolic and androgenic steroids such as testosterone drugs. Twenty-two of those 27 young men were diagnosed with anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) dependence.
According to US statistics (2010) total pharmaceutical deaths in regard to excessive use of illicit drugs (which include illegally purchased HGH or anabolic steroid and use) exceeded those of crash fatalities, deaths by firearm, drug overdoses, and overdoses of prescription opioid pain relievers.
Illicit and unsupervised use of drugs is the second leading cause of drug related emergency room visits. Find out more here.
The reason HGH injections are prescription only is because of the high potential for misuse and abuse. This is especially prevalent among bodybuilders and athletes who often inject higher than recommended dosages of the drug for accelerated benefits.
To make matters worse, bodybuilders often stack HGH injections with other anabolic steroids (such as testosterone) or other drugs to enhance benefits.
Some of the side effects of HGH drug misuse and abuse include but are not limited to:
Purchasing an illegal HGH drug from a foreign, black market, or underground resource can result in counterfeit products or growth hormone products made from human tissues, which can contribute to an increased risk of the rare though fatal Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
In fact, it has been reported that some athletes also combine use of growth hormone with insulin to increase its effects, which in itself is dangerous because this combination can lower blood sugar levels resulted in hypoglycemia. An individual who shares needles for illicit HGH drug injections will obviously also be exposed to a number of other conditions including hepatitis, HIV, or AIDS. Even Sylvester Stallone was caught with HGH at the Australian border.
