Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
If don't need, yes.: If you are an appropriate candidate for it, such as short stature syndrome, growth hormone deficiency from various causes, then it won't be hard on you. It will improve your short stature, and whatever goes with that, like how others see you, and therefore self-esteem. Oh, i'd the injections are what your thinking about, the needles for subcutaneous are so fine, barely feel it. Read more
Discard: Gh should never be frozen. It would need to be discarded. Please discuss with your endocrine nurse. Read more
It may lose potency: I assume you are talking about Humatrope (human growth hormone) which has been mixed with water. Freezing may cause some of the GH to come out of solution when it is thawed and you may see white dust when you mix it. I don't think injecting it would be harmful but if it is just one vial or cartridge & you have extra, I would probably discard it to be on the safe side since if you use it you won't know how much is left Read more
Not reported: Hi. I can tell you from the biochemistry standpoint, probably NOTHING will happen. Defrost it and use it, and it should be fine. Unlike heating (which irreversibly destroys proteins), proteins are generally very tolerant of freezing. But it hasn't been approved (or reported as far as I know). I'm sure it will not hurt you, and the GH should work just fine. Read more

No.: Life gets better if there is a medical problem which can be repaired or corrected with a medicine that either replaces what is deficient, or a medicine that stimulates the body in such a way that it allows the body to heal itself. The present and potential healing properties within all of us are extraordinary powerful; very often nature needs a nudge. Read more
HGH: Hgh stands for human growth hormone, not because it comes from humans, but because growth hormone is species specific, meaning human growth hormone will not have effects on for example horses or cows. Humatrope is one of the synthetic forms available of human growth hormone produced by lilly pharmaceutical. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Within a year.: Firstly, Humatrope (human growth hormone) (generic, somatropin), or gh (growth hormone) should only be used for truly indicated diagnoses: pediatric pts with short stature and gh deficiency, certain genetic or endocrine diseases, adults with childhood onset gh deficiency or an adult form. It is an injectable and it's use should be monitored by experienced doc. If no increased height within a year, needs reevaluation. Read more
For short stature?: If used for short stature, then it depends on how the person feel about the height that might be gained from the drug. If being less short (results can vary) will make the person feel more positive about him/herself then that's better quality of life for him/her. The drug is not without serious side effects and is expensive, so a serious discussion is needed before starting. Read more

When are you too old to take HGH injections like humatrope (human growth hormone) to gain height?
When epiphyses close: The long bones involved in height have a shaft (diaphysis), flare end (metaphysis), and epiphysis (end cap of bone). When the epiphysis closes, the bone length will no longer respond to heightening growth. But it is not a precise science. Two main bones that affect height are femur and tibia. Each one can close anywhere from age 15 to 22. Soc needs to see x-rays, growth curves and take full hx. Read more
Is it bad if I took a dose of humatrope (human growth hormone) that was frozen before it was mixed?
per label: Vials of Humatrope (human growth hormone) and Diluent for Humatrope (human growth hormone) are stable when refrigerated at 2° to 8°C (36° to 46°F). Avoid freezing Diluent for Humatrope (human growth hormone).
Sounds like if only the Humatrope (human growth hormone) frozen probably ok.
