    Exclamation hGH Acromegaly protruded forehead


    I am a 20 year old male. Been bodybuilding for about 8 months. When I was younger my doc put me on hGH because I was extremely short. I have grown to about 5' 7", however, over the past year I have been noticing my hands increasing in size, and my forehead and bones beginning to protrude. On my last orthopedic appt my .doc said I have early Acromagely and to stop the hormone until I see an endocrinologist. So for 6 weeks I was off of the hormone before I finally got my appt. During that period, my forehead began shrinking slightly, but I couldn't make any headway in the gym. My endocrinologist said it would be ok to do another 6 months of the hormone, however, after only about a month back on it, I'm noticing the forehead protrusion getting worse, almost caveman looking. Should I stop it now? Or should I suck it up for a couple more months and hope the forehead shrinks back to normal after I'm finished with my regimen. The endocrinologist did say since I'm young everything should go back to normal, but I don't wanna look like the friggen caveman from the geico commercials.

    I think the age requirement to talk about AAS/PH/DS etc for this forum is 21yrs. But I'd discontinue use if you're getting this type of reaction... wouldn't wanna be Swole with a permanently disfigured face

    Excuse me if I'm being rude but you are thinking about continuing with the HGH even though you are getting body disfigurement. Yet you are afraid of test boosters because of a couple pimples? Sounds like some seriously flawed logic to me!

    I personally don't think you should take ANYTHING until you get a second doctors opinion.

    Yeah supposedly cut it out, sanded it down, and reattached it. Was in my college class. My teacher was very anti supplements, or performance enhancing. They end up looking like the geico cave man with too much hgh hahaha. Acne vs cave man. I'll take acne any day.

    You've been bodybuilding 8 months and can't gain without hgh? You don't need supplements, you need the basics of diet and training. You're 20 years old and, no, acromegaly and bone growth is not reversible.

    Let's slow the bus down here for a second. First, how many iu's are/were taking prior to noticing this problem? Second, acromegaly is caused, in part, because of SUPRAPHYSIOLOGICAL hgh secretion by the anterior pituitary.

    I did a quick lit search and found only 2 case studies of hgh replacement therapy induced acromegaly. Both were people in their 60's.

    Part of me thinks this is all in your head - no pun intended. Do you have measurements of your skull pre and post therapy? Personally, I'd like to see some pre and post pics as well.

    I was put on the hgh when I was 14, I took it until about march. I started off at 9 IUs and as the years went on went up to 13.2 IUs. Then in march I stopped for 6 weeks, then restarted it at 10.2 IUs, went down to 9 IUs and last couple of nights took 8.4 IUs. Now also during this time, occasionally I have stopped for a few weeks over the years anyway. I currently have 3 60IU viles left.

    Well, those are certainly suprapysiological doses. Have they given you an acromegaly diagnosis?

    How old are you? You mentioned you were 5'7", I'm not entirely sure that warrants hgh therapy. Did you grow height wise during the therapy?

    Taking hgh for idiopathic short stature is one thing, taking it for gains in the gym is another.

    I grew 16 inches while on it and I got a diagnosis of "slight" Acromagely in March. They said it was right in its beginning stages. But then I went to my endo and she was like yeah, not to worry, its minor and you're still young so it will mostly go away. Then she said I could finish the hGH that I had left, which was several months worth

I would like to go on PHs becausse I know a couple of people that are absolutely ripped from taking them so I was talkin to.them avout it and theyre like well if the natty stuff gave you acne, this stuff will be even worse

    After a little more lit searching, I found that the average increase in height per year is 2 inches. You've grown 16"'in 6 years so you're ahead of the game.

    My spidey senses are picking up both immaturity and screwed up priorities.

    Here's an idea: drop the hgh and get your diet and training in order.

    Good luck...

    I don't disagree with you, my priorities are slightly off. Now. according to my bone age, the most I could grow is abother 1/2-1 inch, is it worth staying on the hGH for such a slight change??

    This guy gets it. Even if we take into account that you think and enlarged forehead is more attractive than acne, last time I checked acne is pretty reversible. I certainly wouldn't take the same assumption with bone growth.

    Back when I stopped it for 6 weeks my forehead actually did begin to shrink, but I stupidly started it again cuz my endo said a few more months wouldn't do anything since Acromagely takes years to develop but I've been on it for like 5-6 weeks and i just dont feel like its worth it so I'm just gonna dump it. And no 13.2 IUs was my prescription. I was on that dose for a few years. I was on hGH since I was 14,
