my gym trainer is suggesting me to take GH ( growth hormone ) for better result for my body.
could you help me on the risk ?
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
I understand your concern.
Since you are suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis and you are already on treatment, i won't advise you to take any supplements including testosterone, Growth hormone for body building purpose.
You should not be playing with your body hormones now.
Share my opinion with your doctor. I am sure he/she will agree to this.
I hope it helps.
