Teens report increased use of Human Growth Hormone

Teen use of HGH grows

Austin (KXAN)- The pressures of high school and puberty could be making some teens turn to Human Growth Hormone to improve their looks or performance on the field.

In a survey of 3,700 high school students, one out of ten report having used H.G.H at least once.

That marks a five percent increase from last year.

Dr. Theresa Willis with the Steiner Ranch office of the Austin Diagnostic Clinic explains the dangers with Erin Cargile.
