The Side Effects of hGH Therapy?

Although the HGH Injection prescribed at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic is 100% bio-identical, side effects of hGH are still possible in patients undergoing an hGH therapy, particularly if the protocol is not properly supervised and regulated by an expert physician.

The most common side effects are:

• Decreased appetite
• A tingling, itching, burning, or crawling sensation on your skin
• Abnormal or reduced touch sensation
• Abnormally dry skin and hair

Although many of these side effects of hGH are manageable, patients interested in undergoing hGH therapy should be aware of some potentially very serious side effects of hGH. This is why it is so important to only participate in a supervised program that includes regular blood work.

For example, there is clear evidence that the misuse or abuse of hGH can increase the risk of:

• Diabetes
• Certain types of cancer including leukemia
• Abnormal growth of organs such as the liver, kidneys, and heart
• Hypertension
• Atherosclerosis

Although these are very serious complications, if you acquired your hGH through an FDA- and HIPAA-compliant organization that utilizes reputable US-based pharmacies, participating in an individualized hGH program can lead to an array of quality of life-improving benefits. Regardless, if any of these side effects of hGH occur be sure to talk to your AAI Clinic physician.
