Growth Hormone – At Last!

After 6 months of being diagnosed with minus growth hormone, Angel has now recieved her kit!

Growth Hormone Kit

Angel will use an ‘easy pod’ (somatropin).

At the moment she injects herself with the growth hormone every evening. Bev has found out Angel will unfortunately have to be on this for the rest of her life.

What is Somatropin?

Somatropin is a form of human growth hormone important for the growth of bones and muscles.

What does Somatropin do?

Somatropin is used to treat growth failure in children and adults who lack natural growth hormone.

How does Angel get the Somatropin?

– It is delivered to her house via a refrigerated van

Is it difficult for Angel to take?

She takes it every night via injection (we will take a video of her doing it tonight!)
