Now a day’s steroids can be used for medical treatments and they are available in two varieties. The most common steroids like somatotropin can be used to treat Growth Hormone Deficiency which is a medical condition in which the body does not produce enough growth hormone (GH). It is a polypeptide hormone which stimulates growth and cell reproduction. HGH is also known as human growth hormone but in this process older abbreviation, paradoxical connotations have begun to develop, mainly in relation to the peddling of medically unnecessary GH supplementation so-called HGH quackery. There is an analogue to somatotropin. There are two types- one is Somatrem and Somatropin.

Somatrem treats growth hormone deficiency in children. The therapy that is related with somatrem may continue until the desired height is achieved. It is used for the treatment of Cachexia, Dwarfism, Prader-Willi Syndrome and heart failure. One of the important brands of somatrem is Protropin. One should take the doses exactly as prescribed of somatrem by the doctor. On the basis of what the doctor recommends after examing the other medical conditions in that person has, he prescribes the medicines. Somatrem is available in the forms of Injectable Solution.

There are side effects of somatrem when used by someone who doesn’t need growth hormone. If hormone levels in the body are carefully balanced, with one hormone often affecting another, Growth hormone does have the potential to provide benefits for bone and muscle growth development in children and adults who have deficiency in the growth hormone, but the benefits are often outweighed due to the side effects. Somatrem also has the potential for influencing the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, minerals, proteins, connective joint tissues. It is available in the following doses:

  • 10 Mg Injectable Powder For Injection
  • 5 Mg Injectable Powder For Injection

Somatropin is a form of human growth hormone. Human growth hormone is important in the body for the growth of bones and muscles. Somatropin is used for the treatment of failure of growthin children and adults who lack natural growth hormone and in those who have chronic kidney breakdown, Noonan condition, Turner condition, Prader-Willi condition, small stature at birth with no growth, and many other causes. Somatropin is also used to prevent severe weight loss in people with AIDS or to treat short bowel syndrome.

One should not use somatropin if they have a serious medical condition after having open heart surgery or stomach surgery, trauma or other medical emergency, breathing problems (such as lung failure) and always keepthe doctor informed if one has any other medical conditions like liver disease, kidney disease (or if on dialysis),  diabetes, a pituitary gland disorder, scoliosis, high blood pressure (hypertension), a pancreas disorder (especially in children), a history of cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, underactive thyroid, a brain tumor or lesion.
