23-Year-Old on Taking HGH
Kacie, 23, tells Anderson she has been taking HGH for the last three years, saying, "I originally started going to Dr. Reiss because I was having so many problems with low thyroid. I found that with Western medicine, doctors weren't giving me what I needed. When I was 20, my mom stepped in and said, 'Why don't we go to Dr. Reiss?'"
Kacie said that, according to the doctor, "I had all the ingredients for success, but I wasn't utilizing them. Through blood tests, I found that for my HGH level, I was in the lower 10 percent when I should've been high 90 percent because of my age."
Kacie says that almost instantly after taking HGH, she discovered she had "more motivation, started doing better in school and was more confident."
Although HGH is enforced by the FDA, the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) does have investigative authority over it, and a spokesperson from the DEA released this statement to "Anderson." "Many so-called experts would have you believe that steroid and Human Growth Hormone abuse yields positive, healthy benefits. Nothing could be further from the truth. HGH is illegal under federal law, unless used with a valid prescription from a doctor in the course of legitimate medical treatment. Besides breaking federal law, HGH abuse has serious negative long-term effects on the human body. In addition, there are so many unknowns about HGH that have yet to be fully researched. Just like drugs like meth, heroin, cocaine, and pharmaceutical drugs, abuse of HGH is like playing Russian Roulette with your body, and the long-term effects can be costly."
What do you think? Is Kacie too young to be taking HGH? Or do the benefits outweigh the possible health risks?
