Nowadays, almost all that is written about HGH is about its benefits. However, we should consider that a substance is not without side effects. However, these side effects are lessened if you use the product under medical supervision and a controlled dose.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
HGH in excess can cause carpal tunnel syndrome. Any condition that causes swelling or a change in position of the tissue within the carpal tunnel can squeeze and irritate the median nerve. Irritation of the median nerve in this manner causes tingling and numbness of the thumb, index, and the middle fingers. The exact cause why human growth hormone may cause this condition is unknown, but may be related to swelling it brings about.
There are some studies which point out that HGH my cause arthritis. Arthritis is a joint disorder featuring inflammation. A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet. A joint functions to move the body parts connected by its bones. Arthritis literally means inflammation of one or more joints. Arthritis is frequently accompanied by joint pain. Joint pain is referred to as arthralgia.
Edema means swelling caused by fluid in your body's tissues. It usually occurs in the feet, ankles and legs, but it can involve your entire body. This is because HGH is a steroid hormone and steroids often cause water retention. Leaking capillaries will cause the kidneys to accumulate higher than normal quantities of sodium (salt) and water in order to compensate for the capillary fluid loss. This results in more blood circulating in the body, which in turn causes even more capillary leakage into the surrounding tissue, which produces additional swelling - a vicious cycle.
Hyperglycemia is another bad effect of HGH. It can cause fat cells to break themselves down and release free fatty acids into the blood stream. HGH can cause insulin resistance. At the same time, growth hormone can increase glucose output from the liver to the blood. This combination of side effects can raise blood sugar and raise insulin levels, and which later leads on to increased blood sugar levels. Increased blood sugar levels can have fatal consequences such as non healing wounds, edema, kidney failure, sclerosis of the blood vessels, recurrent infections, neuropathy and blindness.
