Genome pharma HGH16 iu is a recombinant human growth hormone (also called somatropin). It has the same structure as natural human growth hormone which is needed for bones and muscles to grow. It also helps your fat and muscle tissues to develop in the right amounts. It is recombinant meaning it is not made from human or animal tissue.
In children, Genome pharma HGH16 iu is used to treat the following growth disturbances:
If you are not growing properly and you do not have enough of your own growth hormone.
If you have Turner syndrome. Turner syndrome is a chromosomal error in girls that can affect growth – your doctor will have told you if you have this.
If you have chronic renal (kidney) insufficiency. As kidneys lose their ability to function normally, this can affect growth.
If you have Prader-Willi syndrome (a chromosomal disorder). Growth hormone will help you grow taller if you are still growing, and will also improve your body composition. Your excessive fat will decrease and your reduced muscle mass will improve.
If you were small or too light at birth. Growth hormone can help you grow taller if you have not been able to catch up or maintain normal growth by four years of age or later.
In adults, Genome pharma HGH16 iu is used to treat persons with pronounced growth hormone deficiency. This can start during adult life, or it can continue from childhood.
If you have been treated with Genome pharma HGH16 iu for growth hormone deficiency during childhood, your growth hormone status will be retested after completion of growth. If severe growth hormone deficiency is confirmed, your doctor will propose continuation of Genome pharma HGH16 iu treatment.
You should only be given this medicine by a doctor who has experience with growth hormone treatment and who has confirmed your diagnosis.
