What is Genotropin 36iu HGH Pen?
Genotropin 36iu ® ( somatropin ) is indicated for the long-term treatment of children with growth disorders due to the following conditions:
Insufficient secretion of growth hormone, Turner syndrome (a genetic disease that affects only women), children born small for gestational age who did not recover their height in the first four years of life and Prader-Willi syndrome (a genetic disease that affects both genders).
Genotropin 36iu ® is indicated for the treatment of idiopathic short stature (without an identified cause).
Genotropin ® is indicated for replacement therapy in adults with growth hormone deficiency.
How does Genotropin 36iu work?
When released by the pituitary gland, somatropin travels through the bloodstream until it reaches the liver, an organ that will be stimulated to produce a protein known as IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor, in English).
One of the functions of IGF-1 is to stimulate the multiplication of cartilage cells (chondrocytes) located at the ends of long bones. In children, this property allows the growth of bones, increasing the child’s height until the arrival of puberty, when the cartilage at the end of the bones is converted into bone tissue and is immune to the functioning of IGF-1.
IFG-1 also has an anabolic function, since it acts on immature muscle cells, accelerating the formation of muscle tissue, and also promotes the synthesis of new proteins in mature cells.
And in addition to these functions linked to bone and muscle growth, somatropin still participates in metabolism, reducing the amount of fat stored in fat cells and regulating blood sugar levels.
Genotropin 36iu in sports
Growth hormone has been used for many years by athletes who want to improve performance and reduce muscle recovery time after strenuous exercise.
Because it is obviously an advantage over other competitors, the hormone was banned by several sports organizations and its use is considered to be doping.
Genotropin should not be used by pregnant women and patients with a history of benign tumors or cancer. And if you have or are predisposed to diabetes, talk to your doctor before starting treatment with Genotropin.
Some of the side effects of Genotropin 36iu include elevated blood glucose, which can lead to the onset of type 2 diabetes during treatment with the drug. Muscle and joint pain, swelling and carpal tunnel syndrome can also be a side effect of Genotropin.
The use of somatropin in inadequate doses can also lead to an increase in the bones of the jaw and the extremities of the fingers, a condition known as acromegaly.
The prolonged use of growth hormone can predispose the body to the formation of tumors, since it stimulates cell differentiation and growth.
The use of this as any other medicine is safe if done with the prescription and medical monitoring.
