For Adult Human Growth Hormone Deficiency: “A very large meningioma next to my pituitary gland damaged the pituitary and lessened the production of several hormones including growth hormone. This is a rare disorder and I had difficulty finding an endocrinologist who could diagnose the problem much less know how to treat it but was finally successful in finding a doctor who diagnosed my problem and prescribed Omnitrrope for me. After taking the medicine for four days my strength improved considerably. That was three years ago and I continue to use the medicine. I am confident it saved my life.”
For Short Stature for Age: “My son at age 6 started the injections due to short stature. Before injections my tiny 6 year old had a bone age growth of 2.5 years and weighed a whopping 32 lbs and was 38 inches tall. Only 4 months after starting the hormone, my son had grown 2 inches and gained a little under 4 lbs. my son is now at the 6 month point and I can see his jeans getting shorter. I cannot wait to see what a full year of hormones does for my big boy”
For Short Stature for Age: “Used this medication when I was 15-18 to treat my stunted growth and development due to being malnourished from Crohn's Disease. Over the course of the time using it, I went from being 5'0 & 87 lbs freshman year of high school to 5'10 & 155 lbs at graduation. This was without lifting weights or really changing my diet at all. Grew 10 inches and gained nearly 70 lbs. I experienced no side effects.”
