Precautions For The Use Of Human Growth Hormone

- Sep 30, 2019-

● A patient who is used to confirm the diagnosis under the guidance of a doctor.

● Diabetic patients may need to adjust the dose of antidiabetic drugs.

● Simultaneous use of corticosteroids inhibits the growth-promoting effects of growth hormone. Therefore, patients with ACTH deficiency should adjust their corticosteroid levels to avoid inhibition of growth hormone. (see drug interactions)

● A small number of patients may have hypothyroidism during the growth hormone treatment process, and should be corrected in time to avoid affecting the efficacy of growth hormone. Therefore, patients should be regularly checked for thyroid function and supplemented with thyroxine if necessary.

● Patients with endocrine disorders (including growth hormone deficiency) may have spondylolisthesis of the femoral head. If claudication occurs during the treatment of growth hormone, attention should be paid to the assessment.

● Sometimes growth hormone can cause excessive insulin status, so it is necessary to pay attention to whether the patient has impaired glucose tolerance.

● If blood glucose is higher than 10mmol/L during treatment, insulin treatment is required. If you need to control blood sugar with 150 IU/day or more of insulin, you should stop using this product.

● The injection site should be changed frequently to prevent fat atrophy.
