GENOTROPIN is a prescription product for the treatment of growth failure in children:

  • Who do not make enough growth hormone on their own. This condition is called growth hormone deficiency (GHD)
  • With a genetic condition called Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). Growth hormone is not right for all children with PWS. Check with your doctor
  • Who were born smaller than most other babies born after the same number of weeks of pregnancy. Some of these babies may not show catch-up growth by age 2 years. This condition is called small for gestational age (SGA)
  • With a genetic condition called Turner syndrome (TS)
  • With idiopathic short stature (ISS), which means that they are shorter than 98.8% of other children of the same age and sex; they are growing at a rate that is not likely to allow them to reach normal adult height and their growth plates have not closed. Other causes of short height should be ruled out. ISS has no known cause

GENOTROPIN is a prescription product for the replacement of growth hormone in adults with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) that started either in childhood or as an adult. Your doctor should do tests to be sure you have GHD, as appropriate.
