The Norditropin Nordilet Injection is one of the most readily available variants of the synthetic human growth hormone (somatropin), which is used as an alternative to the natural growth hormone.
Here’s all you need to know about this HGH injectable:
How does it work?
The pituitary gland in the human brand is responsible for the synthesis of the growth hormone. The growth hormone or the GH does a lot more than make your child grow taller. The hormone is responsible for the body’s overall growth, including metabolic processes and organ growth. After the growth hormone is released, it signals the brain to release another hormone called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Together, these two hormones then signal the tissues in your bones and muscles to grow more cells. If the body isn’t making enough of the growth hormone, the Norditropin® (somatropin) injection helps replenish it.
Who does it help?
The Norditropin Nordilet Injection is also prescribed to children dealing with Noonan syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), or Turner syndrome. It’s also recommended for children who have not caught up in growth during the first four years of their life or were born smaller than their gestational age. Other than that, it’s also prescribed for adults dealing with GH deficiency.
Since the Norditropin Nordilet Injection is a prescription drug, you must get a proper medical examination done before you’re able to purchase it. Tell them about your medical conditions. If you have diabetes, cancer, any tumor, sleep apnea, or some sort of respiratory problem—inform your healthcare provider. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, your doctor should know that too. They’ll also inquire about any additional multivitamins, OTC medicines, or supplements to ensure that they don’t interact with how Norditropin Nordilet Injection is supposed to work.
Furthermore, use the injection exactly how your healthcare provider instructs you to. To keep the infection risk at bay, never share the Norditropin® needles or pens with another person—even after you’ve changed the needles.
How to store the Norditropin Nordilet Injection?
Although most growth hormones are refrigerated, Norditropin FlexPro® pens are an exception. These pens need to be refrigerated at first after you’ve used them, and can be stored at room temperature if you plan on using them within 21 days. However, if you’re going to use the pen for four weeks or so, we recommend keeping them in the fridge. After the first use, you can also carry the pen with you for a sleepover or a soccer match. If you’re traveling by air, it’s better to carry the pen in hand-carry since it might freeze in checked luggage. If you need to keep the pen with you all the time, it’s better to invest in a starter kit that includes a carrying case and cold packs.
