Most of the side effects are limited to HGH injections. HGH sprays or HGH supplements are considered to be milder forms of the product, and hence, are not associated with any adverse side effects. However, the indiscriminate use of any of the HGH product is linked to severe side effects and can result in complications.
Few of the most commonly documented side effects include: increased susceptibility to diabetes, swelling of joints and the face, joint pain, and carpel tunnel syndrome.
Excessive usage of HGH has also been found to be associated with an increased risk of developing colon cancer, in the elderly. Surprisingly, one of the biggest drawbacks of the prolonged use of HGH products is the reduction in the life expectancy and a proneness to develop cardiac and respiratory distress.
Recently published studies indicate that, the benefits of HGH replacement are very few especially for healthy adults. As per the studies, individuals who benefit most from the use of HGH replacement, are those suffering from Growth Hormone Deficiency.
