Is Too Much HGH Bad For You

Written by Author - Authors Medical experts of the National HRT Clinic - January 23, 2017

Is too much HGH bad for you? Taking too much HGH in adults may cause negative side effects that can be quite unpleasant. Our clinic doctors prescribe just the right amount of medication to our patients; no more and no less than is needed for change. The purpose is to give our patients the best opportunity to gain the greatest benefits in the safest possible way.

Our licensed physicians want the prescribed HGH medication to be as effective as possible at the lowest dosage. This way, therapy will be easy on the body of a person who has been diagnosed with low growth hormone levels.


High dosages of just about any medication may have side effects and doctors in most cases will want to keep dosages as low as possible. HGH doctors are the same way. We want to improve health conditions that are caused by GH deficiencies without any negative effects.

In some cases, athletes will take too much growth hormone thinking that this will help them to gain muscle faster or lose fat more quickly. They are mistaken thinking that more is better when in fact it is not. This is abuse of the medication and will not create better endurance, stamina and strength. Instead, it can create negative problems.

Firstly, patients are required to get tested to see if they have low GH levels and secondly to see exactly what dosage they need to create safe and effective change. They need to increase and balance their growth hormone levels perfectly in order to look and feel their best. This is exactly what we help patients of ours to do. This is also the only way to conduct legal therapy that follows the laws for HGH use set forth by the Unites States government.

What Are The Side Effects Of Taking Too Much HGH

The side effects of taking too much HGH can vary from person to person depending upon their body chemistry and their body composition. Here is a list of many of the most common side effects if human growth hormone is taken in too large of a dosage:

They are thrilled with their results.
