Human growth hormone HGH is one of the endogenous hormones that have been formulated in the industry. The generic name of the synthetically produced hormone is Somatropin. The hormone is generally sold as a therapeutic option for the treatment of growth hormones deficiency diseases like dwarfism and cachexia. However, the drug has also found its implication in several bodybuilding purposes.
Available Somatropin dosages
Somatropin dosage is generally measured in milligrams. There are a wide variety of available products for Somatropin. Each of these dosages comes with a defined dosage and price. Some of the examples of available Somatropin mg strength include:
- 10 mg/ml
- 0.4 mg
- 12 mg
- 5 mg
- 24 mg, and
- 0.8 mg.
Another unit for the measurement of the strength of Somatropin is International units (IU). It is generally recommended to take the drug at 2 IU for generating anti-aging effects on the body, ~4 IU for bodybuilding purposes. People hardly go for higher dosages, which are normally meant for the treatment of severe burns or injuries. If using more than 4 IU daily has become a general practice for you, you might be able to generate a sinewy body; however, you should also prepare yourself to develop certain adverse side effects associated with the drug.
Somatropin products generally come in strength of 30 mg. these products are recommended for both adults and children depending on the expected outcomes as well as the condition that is being treated. There might be additional adjustments that can be made if the person administering it has complications or is undergoing treatment for diabetes, liver disease or renal disorders.
Reason behind the recommendation of Somatropin
Somatropin is recommended for the treatment of several childhood-related growth deficiencies like
- Turner’s syndrome
- Noonan Syndrome
- Short stature (both genetic and idiopathic)
- Prader-Willi syndrome
- Chronic renal complications
- Premature gestational age
The generic form of the drug might also be used for the treatment of growth hormone complications in adults. However, the chances of the doctor recommending such growth hormone therapies are very low.
Somatropin should be used with caution
Growth hormones are endogenous hormones whose concentrations are tightly regulated by the body. Any alterations from their optimum concentration result in growth hormone disorders. Therefore, Somatropin or related growth hormone administration should be monitored by a physician. This will confer safety regarding its usage and do away with the risk of developing any potential side effects that it might produce at sub-optimal concentration.
Several athletes and bodybuilders consider Somatropin to be effective in accelerating the growth of their muscle mass. However, these drugs can only be purchased with a valid prescription from a licensed doctor. This particular move by the government ensures that the drug has been used for the sole purpose of treatment of growth hormone related disorders. You can get it from sources outside the country, but the authenticity and effectiveness of these products are highly suspicious.
These are some of the general considerations regarding Somatropin uptake by the users. As you can see, your physician plays an important role in determining the dosage of the drug. You would certainly not want to face side effects if using more than 4 IU daily. If you wish to extract the maximum benefits from these drugs, consult your physician.
