Human growth hormones are used by many people today. The use of the hormones depends on an individuals needs but conventionally, growth hormones are used by the body for cell regeneration, growth and development. The hormones are used to optimize the body to ensure that it gives high aesthetic value as well as health. HGH doses are measured in International Units (UI) and milligrams (mg). 1 UI is equivalent to 3 milligrams. Dosages of HGH should be based on the personal goals of the individual using the hormone and should be taken correctly to reduce the risks of adverse effects on the user. For anti-ageing purposes 2 UI of HGH are generally used. For individuals who are interested in using HGH for bodybuilding between 4 to 6 UI is recommended. 8 to 16 UI of HGH are used for a short period of time to treat individuals recovering from injuries and severe burns.
HGH dosages of 3 UI in a day usually shows no side effects and result into users noticing improvements in sleep patterns , enhanced energy, no gain of excess fat even when eating junk food as well as better skin tones. After using 4 UI per day for several weeks, individuals might start to feel the effects of somatropin. This may include water retention in the toes, fingers and face which makes the body parts looks inflated as well as a slight tingling in the palms and fingers which is usually known as carpal tunnel syndrome. This is the effect that mostly disturbs HGH users and increased effects of the syndrome should lead to the lowering of the dosage or discontinuation until the symptoms disappear completely.
For individuals who use 4 UI dosages and above, it is recommended to split the doses into two injections; one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. This is to stabilize the intake of induced HGH by the body. It is also important that HGH users do not take hormone doses when sleeping. This is because when sleeping, the body releases its natural HGH. Taking induced HGH before sleeping might interfere with the body’s natural functions posing health risks to an individual.
Regardless of the goal that an individual has in mind, it is highly advisable to begin with low doses in HGH program so as to ease the body into higher doses. This helps in the avoidance of common HGH side effects such as joint pains and swellings. The dosing of HGH and insulin should be in such a way that they coincide as they compliment each other by allowing the movement of nutrients allowing a good working environment for the growth hormone. HGH dosage administration is a very dicey affair and the input of a physician is highly recommended. Wrong dosages can have life threatening effects on a user. In case of the appearance of adverse side effects it is important to visit a doctor immediately.
