Genotropin growth hormone is often recommended in the event that a child or adult is diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency.
Injected subcutaneously (under the skin), it is indicated in both pediatric as well as adult patients under certain circumstances. For example, pediatric indications for use include – again based on individual case-by-case diagnoses and contributing factors:
Note – Growth hormone is not always recommended in the above cases. Some contraindications may discourage the use of any brand of growth hormone.
A doctor will determine indications as well as recommended usage, dosage, and administration methods and strength of the medication based on age, weight, condition, and overall treatment goals.
Growth hormone like Genotropin or Jintropin may be recommended to stimulate cellular growth as well as skeletal growth. Short stature pediatric patients have been noted to have fewer musculoskeletal cells.
While it is known that IGF-1 concentrations (IGF is a type of hormone manufactured in the liver) are often low in children diagnosed with Prader-Willie syndrome, short for gestational age, or growth hormone deficiencies, those levels can be increased during Somatropin treatment.
In addition, growth hormone has an impact on the metabolism of proteins and carbohydrates as well as lipids and minerals. An adult treated with Genotropin may experience an increase in lean body mass while enjoying a decrease in fat mass. In some cases, the growth hormone injections must continue for life for maintenance. Find out more here.
Pfizer provides a variety of pens to make it easier and more convenient to administer growth hormone. Genotropin cartridge options are color-coded to correspond to a specific delivery device.
