Humatrope: General Information & Indications
Humatrope is a version of human growth hormones manufactured by Lilly Pharmaceuticals. In 1876, Eli Lilly founded a pharmaceutical company that would change the lives of many adults more than 130 years later.
For nearly two decades, HGH injections have been used to correct growth hormone (GH) deficiency in adults over thirty. This bioidentical form of the chemical messenger somatotropin helps to provide the body with an increase when the pituitary gland no longer produces enough of this hormone for optimum functioning to occur.
Eli Lilly Humatrope is indicated for use by adults with GH deficiency when there are no adverse conditions such as active cancer present. It is not approved for use for the purposes of bodybuilding or athletic enhancement.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) doctors run diagnostic blood tests to determine who is a candidate for this treatment. In addition to the blood analysis, a physical examination and a comprehensive medical history questionnaire must also be completed before diagnosis and treatment can begin.
Our team of hormone replacement specialists is here to provide superior customer service at all times. A complimentary consultation is available by phone during our regular business hours. Please contact us with any questions are to learn how to get your blood analysis at a local lab.
Benefits of Humatrope
There are numerous benefits of HGH Humatrope for adults. Since somatotropin is important for cellular regeneration, immunity, metabolism, and cognitive processes, among others, it’s deficiency effects can be widespread. That makes the positive HGH results broad in nature, as well.
The Humatrope growth hormone benefits include the following:
- Cellular Regeneration – GH plays both a direct and indirect role in the body’s ability to regenerate new cells on a daily basis. If a decline in production occurs, there will not be enough of these essential building blocks to replace those that are continuously dying off. Treatment with HGH therapy improves cellular reproduction which is extremely beneficial for internal organ growth and function, as well as muscle, bone, hair, and skin support.
- Energy and Metabolism – growth hormone provides the stimulus – or signals – that help the metabolism process and convert lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates into fuel, which, in turn, provides the body with energy. Instead of storing fat, the body will now use the food that is consumed for energy and excess weight will slowly be reduced.
- Muscle Support – with an abundance of new cells ready for action, lean muscle mass will improve, aiding in the structural support and strength of the body.
- Bone Density – the same improved cellular process will help to strengthen the bones, reducing the risk of osteoporosis.
- Skin – a noticeable decline in the appearance of cellulite, wrinkles, and sagging skin will be seen in a few short months as collagen levels increase and firming and tightening occur.
- Hair – hair will also start to grow in thicker and fuller, with some regrowth often seen after a few months, and the possible return of one’s natural color after six months of treatment with Humatrope HGH.
- Immunity – Immune system functions are also affected by decreased somatotropin production, and the benefits of this therapy include improved immunity, fewer colds and viruses, and speedier recovery times.
- Cholesterol – HGH therapy can help lower LDL cholesterol.
- Mood – most people find that their mood and outlook improve, starting only a few weeks after beginning treatment.
- Libido – increased sexual desire, arousal, performance, and pleasure are often noted.
- Eyesight – improved night vision and general eyesight are other benefits of human growth hormone therapy.
- Cognitive Skills – the brain is home to a multitude of GH receptor cells, and increasing the level of this chemical messenger will help to sharpen memory, improve cognitive functions, and provide better focus and concentration.
Possible Side Effects of Humatrope
When human growth hormone therapy is authorized for use by a doctor who specializes in HRT, the chances of side effects occurring are greatly reduced. Any adverse effects are typically associated with too much medication being administered into the body, and, therefore, if any issues should arise, the doctor will lower the dosage until the symptoms subside and disappear. Treatment will then proceed at a lower level until either the positive Humatrope results are achieved, or the body is ready for the dosage to be gradually increased to the required level.
The most common adverse effects associated with Humatrope injections are:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Edema – retention of fluid
- Joint and/or muscle pains
- High cholesterol
If any adverse effects should occur when using Eli Lilly Humatrope that has been prescribed by a doctor here at National HRT, contact us immediately for help and proper support.
There is a greater risk of overdosing the human growth hormone medication with the standard vial rather than the Humatrope Pen system. Due diligence is still required in both cases to ensure that the appropriate dosage is ready for use.
With a standard syringe, if too much medication is drawn into the unit, simply push in slowly on the plunger until the excess HGH has been returned to the vial.
With the injector pen systems, a dial will be used to set the dosage – just dial back to the appropriate amount before administering the injection.
The risks that could occur with too much Humatrope human growth hormone include:
- Cold sweats
- Rapid heartbeat
Please contact National HRT if any of these symptoms should occur or if there is any possibility that too much medication was administered.
Usage and Administration of Humatrope
Humatrope by Lilly should always be supervised by a doctor who is experienced in hormone replacement therapy. This is not a treatment to receive from a physician who is not a specialist in this field. It is essential to be prescribed an accurate Humatrope dosage based solely on what each person’s body requires for optimum healthfulness.
There are two different ways that Humatrope can be purchased:
- In 5 mg vials for use with standard insulin syringes and needles
- In 6, 12, and 24 mg cartridges for use in the Humatrope Pen 6, 12, and 24 injector systems
The 5 mg vials will be reconstituted with a diluent that will also be provided. A clinical advisor here at National HRT will provide all necessary instructions and supplies. Following the reconstitution, the vial should be carefully swirled in a gentle rotary motion – never shaken! The solution should be clear and never cloudy or crystalized in any way.
The Humatrope Pen comes with individual cartridges that can be replaced when empty. A special diluent and syringe will be provided for the reconstitution of these cartridges, as well.
- Read all instructions, watch the online videos, and get any questions answered by our medical advisors.
- Gather all necessary supplies before proceeding.
- Check expiration dates.
- Examine the medication for crystals or a cloudy appearance.
- Check the cartridge for the appropriate strength.
