Growth hormone abuse could pose public health threatResearchers have found that illicit use of human growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor I is common among male weightlifters. Moreover, such use among male weightlifters is often associated with polysubstance abuse involving both performance enhancing and classical drugs.

Researchers compared three groups of men for augmenting conflicting data on growth hormone abuse.

Those reporting lifetime use of GH or IGF-I were placed in the first group, those reporting anabolic-androgenic steroid use but no GH or IGF-I were placed in the second group, and those reporting no use were placed in the third group.

Chinese Drug Company pleads guilty in GH caseGeneScience Pharmaceutical, a Chinese drug company, and its chief executive have agreed to plead guilty to charges of illegally distributing human growth hormone in the United States, as per filings in United States District Court in Rhode Island.

The company, which identifies itself as China’s most profitable biopharmaceutical company, had distributed the growth hormone (GH) in China and other parts of the world through the Internet.

According to a court filing, the clean competition fund that is to be administered by the Rhode Island Community Foundation would support anti-doping in sports, drug screening, and clinical research into long-term effects of human growth hormone.

Identification of biomarkers for GHClaims about potential new biomarkers for growth hormone (GH) have been made by researchers while presenting results of an animal study at the Endocrine Society’s 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

It is believed that this identification would be helping doping officials to identify and curb the use of growth hormone and steroids during sporting events.

John Kopchick, PhD, of Ohio University and co-author of the study, remarked that results extensions are believed to be of paramount importance to human beings.

Growth hormone does not enhance physical performanceIndividuals using injectable growth hormone (GH) for buildup of solid muscles or improve physical performance do not find any benefit, as per a dissertation from the Sahlgrenska Academy at Göteborg University in Sweden.

Dr. Christer Ehrnborg remarked that there is an instant effect when growth hormone is injected into the body and sportsmen perceive this effect to be good enough to enhance performance but that’s not the case.

It is worth noting here that use of GH does not bring the same benefits as that from use of anabolic steroids. Moreover, GH abuse can lead to fatal side effects such as damage to the heart and blood vessels.

Growth hormone can lead to diabetesAccording to a study published ahead of print in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, use of growth hormone (GH) for enhancing athletic performance could lead to diabetes.

This study reported the case of a 36-year old professional bodybuilder who required emergency care after complaining of chest pain. The individual was on anabolic steroids for 15 years and artificial growth hormone for the past 3 years for countering the effects of high blood sugar.

The authors were of the view that this is the first reported case of diabetes linked with usage of high dose growth hormone.

Growth hormone production traced to human brainAccording to an article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences citing a discovery by scientists, the human brain produces growth hormone in human beings.

It was found by the researchers that growth hormone (GH) is produced within a structure deep inside the brain that is involved in memory and emotion, known as hippocampus. It was also found that growth hormone production is more in females than males, and more in adults.

First author Christine P. Donahue. Donahue, formerly a postdoctoral fellow of Ken Kosik and an instructor in the Department of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, said that GH production in men is positively stimulated with stress and is dependent on the estrogen level in women.

Growth hormone use irrelevant for muscle buildingUsing growth hormone (GH) in an injectable form with an aim to build solid muscle mass or enhance performance holds no good, as per a dissertation from the Sahlgrenska Academy at Göteborg University in Sweden.

It is important to note that the use of anabolic steroids is a common practice among sportsmen but growth hormone does not bring the same results as steroids. Moreover, the use of GH may lead to severe health complications such as damage to the heart and blood vessels.

Christer Ehrnborg, who was involved in this dissertation, remarked that though immediate feel of effect may be experienced by athletes using growth hormone but there is no benefit such as increased muscle mass according to conducted experiments.

Intake of growth hormone does not result in improved physical performanceInjecting growth hormone (GH) expecting improved physical performance is a complete waste of efforts, as per a new dissertation from the Sahlgrenska Academy at Göteborg University in Sweden. It was revealed that growth hormone does not result in building muscle mass or improving the level of physical performance.

GH does not bring the same dramatic benefits as other anabolic steroids but can result in severe side effects such as damage to the blood vessels and heart.

Christer Ehrnborg remarked that athletes injecting growth hormones experience immediate effect in the body and are of the view that it will improve physical performance. But, this is not the complete truth as there are no effects of increased muscle mass from the growth hormone as per the conducted experiments.
