Can HGH cause diabetes?

Human growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that plays an important role in growth and metabolism. There has been some concern that using synthetic HGH injections could increase the risk of developing diabetes, but the evidence on this risk is mixed.
Some key points about HGH and diabetes include:

In summary, while HGH therapy does not definitively lead to diabetes in most people, those using HGH long-term or at high doses should monitor their blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. Those already at elevated diabetes risk may want to exercise particular caution with synthetic growth hormone use.
