Know about GHD first!

Growth hormone deficiency (or GHD) occurs when the body doesn’t make enough growth hormone. This is the job of the pituitary gland, a pea-sized tissue that sits at the base of the brain, just behind the eyes.

People with this condition may suffer decreases at multiple physical and mental sides. Also, GHD might appear on its own, or in combination with other pituitary hormone deficiencies.

How does growth hormone help?

Treatment for GHD typically involves hormone replacement therapy with growth hormone injections, where somatropin is considered an effective treatment in both children and adults. somatropin is administered as a subcutaneous injection, typically once daily, after the clinical trials have shown it to improve growth and development in children with GHD, as well as increase muscle mass and decrease body fat in adults with GHD.1.2

Nevertheless, as with any medication, the effectiveness of somatropin can vary from a case to another, and the results can depend on several factors, including the severity of the GHD, age, and overall health of the patient. It is important to follow the dosing and administration instructions provided by the healthcare professional to ensure the best possible results from treatment with somatropin.2
