Abuse of Human Growth Hormone likely to raise severe health risksHGH, also known as Human Growth Hormone, is one of those drugs that can be termed as a safe and effective clinical form of treatment when used under qualified medical guidance. However, it may result in serious repercussions when it is abused.

Dr. Alan Rogol, who testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Government Reform Committee on behalf of The Endocrine Society, outlined the legitimate medical usage of human growth hormone and severe health consequences surrounding its abuse by sportsmen and celebrities, and individuals who try to find good ways to combat the effects of aging.

Dr. Rogol said that growth hormone that is made from human tissue has significantly been removed from the drug market because of the rare yet fatal Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
