What Happens if You Take Too Much HGH?

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a hormone naturally produced in the pituitary gland, and when taken in excess it can come with a variety of adverse effects. While taking too much of any substance should be avoided, it’s even more important to take caution when dealing with hormones that play a major role in regulating how your body functions.

Given the risk, let's look at what happens when you take too much HGH:

  • Excess water retention and organ swelling due to fluid accumulation in cells.
  • Diarrhea or abdominal pain due to an increase in cell metabolism and disruption of several organs’ ability to absorb nutrition.
  • Increased fat deposits due to changes in hormone levels, leading to unwanted weight gain.
  • Thinning hair, increased body hair growth, and skin discoloration due to changes in the production of other hormones like testosterone.
  • Osteoporosis caused by an imbalance between calcium absorption and deposition on bones as well as decreased testosterone production.
  • Reduced muscle mass due to an increase in IGF-1 concentration which causes muscles to break down faster than they can rebuild themselves.
  • High blood sugar levels due to increased rates of glucose uptake by cells which can lead to diabetes.
  • Alterations in brain chemistry leading to depression, aggression, and mood swings.

It's vitally important for individuals taking HGH for therapeutic purposes or for sports performance enhancement—or anyone considering it—to talk with their doctor first about potential risks associated with taking too much of this hormone supplement. It's also essential for those considering treatment with HGH understand potential long-term effects including premature aging and liver function damage from incorrect dosing or abuse of the drugs.

Fortunately, HGH Treatment clinic offers comprehensive care including personalized monitoring and dosages tailored specifically for you; so you won't have worry about complications caused by taking too much HGH ever again!
