What long term side effects does the growth hormone Nutropin AQ cause?
Asked by Marjorie Fegette 2 years ago.
side affects i got big boobs a to d back to a c curly hair, big feet grew from 3 in kids to a 9 in womens, i ws 4'7 now ia m 5'4 growing pains, mood swings, depression, your shots leave scars thats i can think of but its worth it all. Answered by Kirstie Felio 2 years ago.
I'm on it and I have no side effects. It's definitely working, though. I was 4'3 and became 4'8 in one year. The most you'll get is pain or a bruise on the injection site. I've never had any other side effects. If your doctor prescribes growth hormone treatment, don't worry. Sure, it's not fun giving yourself shots, but you'll deal. Soon, it becomes a routine like brushing your teeth. And look on the bright side. You'll never be afraid of getting shots at the doctor's anymore :). Answered by Saran Skillicorn 2 years ago.
I take it and have had no side effects. You shouldn't have any if your GH levels are within range. I was deficient for over a year before I started it and felt much better after about 1 month of it. Answered by Brandie Cera 2 years ago.

I have a six year old daughter who has been diagnosed with Septoptic Dysplasia. She hasn't grown in years, she is the size of a two year old. (I am a little woman, and she was 4 wks. premature, but in the last year or two it had become obvious that something else was wrong--surely she shouldn't be THAT small.) The doctors have started her on pez tropin, a shot she takes every day. I have tried to get info on this online, with NO luck. Please help if you can--I'd like to know, is the shot amino acids, a protein, or what? I would appreciate any accurate information very much. Maybe I could try the library next. In the meantime, does anyone have an answer??? I am in a different state from my daughter right now, and can't speak to the doctor myself to find out. She's having surgery this summer. We are praying everything is healthy, and that this missing hormone or whatever it is will help her grow. Her petuitary gland does not produce it. Any facts would be GREATLY appreciated! Answered by Anette Gueretta 2 years ago.
Hello..I have never heard of Pez tropin, but I guess it must be a form of somatropin (growth hormone). I am guessing your daughter tested positive for gh deficiency? GH is only in injectable form and I don't see why she would be prescribed anything else. I take Nutropin AQ myself for adult gh deficiency. The gh your daughter is taking should bring her IGF1 levels to normal for her age, that is the goal. She probably won't catch up but should start growing at a normal rate. Has your daughter's other hormone levels been tested? Since there is pituitary damage from her condition other hormones should be watched very carefully. Cortisol is very important for stress and EXTREMELY dangerous to be without. Thyroid can be low and also repro hormones. I hope you have a very good endocrinologist with pituitary expertise. If not, its important to get one and you can search the listing at this site www.pituitary.org. Growth hormone is not just for childhood, as an adult she will also need it or will have a lot of health problems (osteoporosis, fatigue, aching, depression, etc.) Answered by Kimberlee Stepps 2 years ago.

Not likely enough to get a doctor's prescription. The other issue aside from the prescription is the prohibitive cost of human growth hormones. These growth hormones more commonly referred to as hGH or genetically engineered growth hormones are manufactured by only a few qualified facilities or pharmeceutical companies such as Genentech which manufactures Nutropin (AQ) which is the brand name repalcement for the hormone Somatropin. A one year supply of Nutropin AQ at 1.3 mg per day costs about $40,000 to $45,000 per year. It is a widely accepted medical necessity for patients suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease short in stature and have not had a kidney transplant. Consider yourself lucky compared to those who do need it. Answered by Emiko Wikstrom 2 years ago.
Once you have reached puberty, taking growth hormone is not effective at increasing your height. At puberty, the epiphyses in your long bones close, inhibiting further lengthening of them. Taking growth hormone after puberty will therefore not help you grow taller. However, the other functions of growth hormone will occur. These include the widening of your bones and various metabolic functions. It is not a good idea to take growth hormone after puberty, especially for growth. The main purpose it serves for post-pubertal patients is those with AIDS Wasting Syndrome. Answered by Celestine Conlans 2 years ago.
Your height is determined by your genes. Are your parents tall? If not, 5'1" might be what you are meant to be. Don't give up yet though, you are only 18 and males usually don't quit growing until age 21. I always thought my neighbors' 2 boys were going to be short and so did she, their mother. You should see them now! Both have got to be close, if not, 6'! You probably haven't hit your last growth spurt, so be ready. Answered by Maurice Scheve 2 years ago.
Can I get HGH injections?
I am 17 , i am 5'5 I will be 18 in MARCH How can I get HGH injections? Will they work? If not then why? How much do they cost? Please give me all of the info... Yes, my self esteem is down because of my height...I hate it =/ ?
Asked by Carter Hinnenkamp 2 years ago.
I would be happy to answer your question! I am currently a pharmacy student. You can look at the references below to see where I got my information. Short stature can be caused by a few different things. A few common reasons could be the heights of your parents, being low in a hormone called somatropin (or growth hormone), or even certain other health conditions. How well HGH works will depend on the cause. If you have a low amount of growth hormone in your body, then getting an injection of that hormone will cause a great height jump. However, if there are other reasons behind your stature, then you may need higher doses and it may not be as likely to get a huge height increase. For example, if you have a long family history of short statured people and you are not low on growth hormone, it is not likely you will be able to reach a height of 6’3”. It is also important to remember that growth happens during different times for different people. Usually a person’s last growth spurt occurs around the time of puberty. Since everybody goes through puberty at different times, this growth spurt will also happen at different times. After a person has a growth spurt, they will usually continue to grow (at a slow rate) until the skeleton reaches adult maturity (which normally doesn’t happen by the time someone is 17). Growth can continue into your 20’s. Human growth hormone is only available through a prescription from your doctor and is only available as an injection. You will need to go to a doctor anyways so that they can figure out the cause of your height issue. Many times, you will need to find a doctor that specializes in this type of medicine. They may be able to set up to give you the injection at the doctor’s office, or they may write a prescription so you can get it filled at a local pharmacy. There are many different names and manufactures that make human growth hormone. Some names you might see are Genotropin®; Humatrope®; Norditropin®; Nutropin AQ®; Omnitrope®; or Saizen®. Unfortunately, these injections are expensive. Most dosing is weight based. Assuming you are around 140lbs, a month supply would be anywhere from about $600.00 to $900.00 per month at first. If this dose does not work, they would have to increase you to a higher dose which would potentially cost even more. If you have insurance, they may be willing to pay part of this. You can call the customer service number on the back of your card or go online to their website for more details. Hope this helps!! Answered by Analisa Pelo 2 years ago.

How To Get Hgh Answered by Collene Loesche 2 years ago.
Under eating and under sleeping can, to some extent, stunt your height growth. Exercise does not help your height growth and smoking can actually reduce your potential height by a whole inch. You can see further tips in a web search to grow taller naturally. Answered by Myrtie Wangler 2 years ago.
Hi, I am a dermatologist by profession and within a careeer of 10 years I have seen lots of acne problems. According to me Red and white pimples are the worst and painful. Acneprone skin is very sensitive, even if you touch it once the redness will increase with itching. According to me there is no magical way to heal your pimples over night as this is the puffed part of your skin due to the bacteria. In simple words try to improve your diet and have lots of water that helps in healingg process. Un-necessary oily food should be avoided to get a healthy spotless skin.

From where do doctors get growth hormones?
Asked by Stephan Lacross 2 years ago.
From the pharmacist, the pharmacist gets it from the drug distributor (Amerisource or Cardinal), who gets it from the manufacturer, Eli Lilly and Co for Humatrope® and Genentech Inc for Nutropin AQ®. Answered by Theron Persten 2 years ago.
The major source for human growth hormone (HGH) these days is a company called Genentech, which is located near San Francisco, California. They are a genetic engineering company. One of their big successes has been HGH. They made a synthetic gene and use that to make the hormone in culture. Then it is purified and sold. Doctors and pharmacies that sell HGH would usually obtain it from Genentech. Other companies may make HGH, but they most likely have to license it from Genentech, because as far as I know Genentech owns the international patents. Other hormones that cause growth, like anabolic steroids, can probably be bought from many sources. Reputable doctors and pharmacies would buy them from reliable manufacturers and suppliers in order to ensure safety, but since these hormones get used illegally by athletes, there are probably also underground drug chemistry laboratories that make them.
