I am a 17 year old boy. I want to take HGH orally for my linear growth. What is the difference between this and an injection?

I am a 17 year old boy. I want to take HGH orally for my linear growth. What is the difference between this and an injection?

WOULDN'T WORK: For HGH to work, it must enter your bloodstream in one piece. It is a complex protein molecule that will be broken down by digestive action if you take it orally. A few fragments would be absorbed but it must be intact to work. Beware of supplements that promise to "boost" your HGH levels. As supplements they are not subject to the same safety and effectiveness standards as meds licensed by the FD A ...Read more

Which is the disease that you get from taking HGH that gives you irreversible abnormal growth of bones?

Acromegaly: Acromegaly is what you are thinking of, which comes from pituitary tumors that make gh. Usually patients with acromegaly have had excess gh for many years before it is discovered. Although I am not aware of clinical acromegaly from hgh injections (you would have to take hgh a long time), you don't want to stimulate "growth" all over the body. Abnormal growth can lead to heart disease, cancer. ...Read more

(dr. Cornelia franz) so that means we can grow even after puperty wheather growth plates are fused or not if pituitary release high amount of HGH?

Again...: Puberty does not mean that the growth plates are now closed. It may be coincidental in some joints, but usually not with the long bones of the body. Once the growth plates are fused, you are done growing. ...Read more

In theory: It's possible theoretically but unlikely. Overall growth plates tend to fuse in synchrony - as in at the same time - which is why children who have a real need for growth hormone tend to do fine. ...Read more

What are the side effects for the hgh. Growth hormone for bodybulding and whether it is dangerous or not and are there any safe hormone to take instead?

Heart problems: High levels of hgh have been linked to heart problems and diabetes - two things someone young & healthy do not want to have. They're really risky if combined with anabolic steroids. There aren't any hormones out there that I know of that come without risk - even birth control (which is a hormone), can cause clots and stroke, but it's worth it to prevent pregnancy. Is bodybuilding worth it? ...Read more
