Taking growth hormone. Best method of regularly eating it? Side effects?

Hi. I am 32 year old male, with G6PD. I excercise regularly and I am considering taking Growth Hormone . Obviously there are numerous side effects associated with taking HGH and my question are: 1) How will the HGH interact with someone that has G6PD? 2) What is the best method of following up regularly on the effects of HGH? ( blood test etc...) 3) Is there a method of taking it under supervision, and who is the best professional to be supervising this? Thank you

Thank you for your query.
You do not mention why you want to take growth hormone. As you have stated the possible side effects are numerous. I would approach something like this with great caution. Definitely do not attempt it on your own. The best is to see a specialist endocrinologist to advise you on this matter.
I trust this information is helpful to you.
