Human Growth Hormone: Abusing The Possibilities (part 1 of 2)
Human growth hormone, a hormone produced in the pituitary gland is very useful. Aside from performing it’s duties in the growth processes, it also helps in metabolism. Furthermore, it is also used in treating HGH diseases.
HGH diseases vary from HGH deficiency and HGH excess. These diseases have existed long before HGH had been used as an instrument for treatment. The utilization of HGH as a cure has proven to be successful in the medical world. The first method of treatment, cadaver-GH, bloomed but it was deserted as a method because of its dangerous side effects. When this method proved to be dangerous, researchers looked for other alternative methods and found genetic engineering. Genetic engineering resulted to the HGH products and supplements that we know of today.
While HGH products and supplements are very beneficial to a human, these benefits end when an individual starts abusing the use of HGH. What is actually HGH abuse and how it is performed by an individual?
Abuse is to use something wrongly or incorrect. Drug abuse is using a drug that it illegal and using drugs in improper dosages. In the case of HGH products, abuse is done when other people use it without medical prescription or the guidance of a doctor.
HGH abuse is manifested in three scenarios; elderly people using the HGH products, athletes who use HGH and people using the products for their own gratification. HGH products and supplements have been approved for medical purposes particularly treating HGH diseases. But, it has not been approved as anti-aging product or performance enhancer.
