Somatropin is defined as recombinant human growth hormone (HGH) in the form of somatropin; a synthetically manufactured protein that is close to identical to endogenous or body-produced human growth hormone.
Endogenous growth hormone is manufactured in the pituitary gland of the brain. Endogenous and synthetic growth hormone produces the same effects on the body: stimulating growth of tissues, linear (height) growth, and metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, minerals, and proteins.
Somatropin is available in a variety of milligram strength. Each of these comes with different dosage recommendations and price. Just a few examples of somatropin milligram strength:
Somatropin is generally recommended as a treatment for childhood growth hormone deficiencies including:
It is contraindicated in cases where an individual has been diagnosed with vision or eye problems as a result of diabetes, or if you have cancer. Because growth hormone makes the cells grow, it can also have an effect on growth of cancerous tumors. It is also generally not recommended if a person is overweight or obese and has breathing issues.
Despite cautions and warnings against use for bodybuilding or anti-aging, HGH is among a group of drugs commonly used by bodybuilders to enhance their physical and athletic performance. Peyton Manning is one example of an athlete thought to be taking HGH. Growth hormone injections are often combined with testosterone injections for increased benefits.
Dosage recommendations for medical treatment of growth hormone deficiencies are typically much lower than dosages used by bodybuilders. Bodybuilders and athletes often misuse and abuse growth hormone in regard to Somatropin dosage recommendations.
AverageHuman Growth Hormone Dosage Recommendations
Dosage for Somatropin injections (Jintropin, Humatrope, Norditropin, Genotropin) will depend on the condition and the age of the individual being treated. Adult doses of Somatropin are weight-based or non-weight-based. For example:
Weight-based: Initial doses of 0.004 mg per kilogram subcutaneously once daily, or an overall total of 0.04 mg per kilogram weekly in divided doses.
Non-weight-based: Average of 0.2 mg subcutaneously daily (the range may vary between 0.15 to 0.3 mg daily)
Of course, dosage and adjustments to dosage depend on a person’s clinical response to the drug, levels of serum IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1), and again, according to condition.
On average, Somatropin subcutaneous or intramuscular injections for men ranges between 1 and 3 IUs daily.
Now let’s talk about Somatropin dosage often used by bodybuilders and athletes. Non-official recommendations for bodybuilders and athletes averages between 2 to 4 IU daily. HGH injections are often combined (stacked) with anabolic steroid injections. For long-term benefits of muscle mass gains, 6 to 8 IUs is typical, and sometimes more (hard-core bodybuilders use as much as 10 IUs daily).
Somatropin, or any form of growth hormone injection, should always be overseen by a physician. This will contribute toward safety and reduced risk of potential side effects and adverse reactions.
Bodybuilders commonly turn to growth hormone to help facilitate accelerated growth of muscle mass. Growth hormone injections are prescription only and doctors do not prescribe it or recommend it for bodybuilding or reasons other than for which the drug was designed – to treat growth hormone deficiencies of the pituitary gland by replacing growth hormone with synthetic growth hormone not produced by the body. Be very careful when taking your Somatropin dosage.
