Genotropin (human growth hormone) growth hormones shorts, what is this?

Growth hormone: Genotropin (human growth hormone) is growth hormone and is indicated in children with growth hormone deficiency to help them grow. It has much less of a role in adults, but can sometimes be helpful in adults who have had pituitary disease and have very low somatomedin C levels.
