23 Reasons Not to Use Human Growth Hormone (hGH)

By: , , Filed in: Articles, News

Growth hormone (hGH) was developed in medicine to treat children’s growth disorders, Turner’s syndrome and adult growth hormone deficiency. It may be taken orally or by intramuscular injection and is listed alongside similar Growth Factors  on ADA’s banned list like Insulin-like Growth Factors (e.g. IGF-1) and Mechano Growth Factors (MGFs).

In its role as an anabolic agent, HGH has been abused by competitors in sports since the 1970s, and is banned by the IOC. Traditional urine analysis could not detect doping with HGH, so the ban was unenforceable until the early 2000s when blood tests that could distinguish between natural and artificial hGH were starting to be developed. Blood tests conducted by WADA at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece primarily targeted HGH.

Enhances athletic performance in the following ways:

body fat percentage decrease

growth stimulation

muscle definition enhancement

muscle size and strength increase

muscle tissue repair

protein synthesis increase

All very attractive to the athlete looking to steal an advantage over his fellow competitors…….until you investigate the very real side effects:

abnormal body changes


antibody formation


brain swelling


congestive heart failure

coronary artery disease

Cruetzfeldt-Jakob disease development when drug is produced from cadaveric specimens

diabetes mellitus

diabetic (hypoglycemic) coma

facial nerve paralysis

forehead and jaw shape change

hand enlargement

heart enlargement





menstrual irregularities

metabolic dysfunction



Last year Kirk O’Bee (USA) received a lifetime suspension for abuse of the drug, but it has also been detected in track and field, bodybuilding and tennis in recent months.

What is most disturbing is how easily it is available to the public over the Internet. One of the highest Google ranked hGh sites will sell the drug to anyone regardless of age, usage or health. But we can see it obviously affects mental capacity as well: The headline in their site boasts

“We Ship To All 141 Countries”

What all of them! Perhaps a lesson in ethics and responsibility would be lost if they fail nursery school geography.

    Or we could actually look at scientific evidence behind HGH for instance increased life expectancy? First off acromegaly is ONLY possible with your bodies natural GH production, not exogenous. Please research a bit before pushing incorrect information onto others. All of these side effects are random and extremely rare. For instance a side effect of tylenol is seizures, death, and liver failure. Do you really worry about death anytime you take tylenol? Didn't think so.

    WADA did not conduct hGH tests in Athens. It was a WADA accredited laboratory. WADA does not conduct tests.
