A member asked:

What long term side effects does the growth hormone nutropin (human growth hormone) cause?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Monitoring necessary: When properly dosed (following the igf-1 blood test at regular intervals), growth hormone replacement should not have unpleasant side effects. However, if the dose is too high, side effects of growth hormone excess, such as joint pains and edema (swelling) can occur.
