Utilization of Growth Hormone

Growth hormones in sports refers to the utilization of growth hormones (GH or HGH) for athletic enhancement, as against somatotropin treatment for medical therapy. Human somatotropin may be a prescription medication, meaning that its distribution and use without a prescription is against the law. There's limited evidence that GH doping improves athletic performance, although the perception that it does is common within the sporting community. Potential side effects of future GH doping could mirror the symptoms found in sufferers of acromegaly, a disease during which the anterior pituitary gland gland produces excess somatotropin. These symptoms include swelling of the hands and feet, joint pain, fluid retention, and excessive sweating.
