Somatropin, major component of the Genotropin, is the potent metabolic hormone which is very important for the proper digestion of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. For children who have insufficient endogenous growth hormone and those with Prader-Willi syndrome, Somatropin stimulates the linear growth and increases the growth rate. For adults, and even on children, Somatropin is used for maintaining the normal body composition by increasing the stimulation of skeletal muscle growth and nitrogen retention.
Also, the following actions have been shown:
Lipid metabolism: Somatropin triggers hepatic LDL cholesterol receptors, and influences the profile of lipoproteins and serum lipids. Generally, the administration of Somatropin to growth deficient patients resulted in the reductions of apolipoprotein B and serum LDL. Reduction in serum total cholesterol is also observed.
Carbohydrate metabolism: Somatropin increases the insulin but fasting blood glucose did not change. Children who have hypopituitarism may have fasting hypoglycaemia; this condition may be reversed by somatropin.
Mineral and water and mineral: Deficiency in growth hormone is related to reduced extracellular and plasma volumes. Both are quickly increased after the treatment with Somatropin. This drug also induces retention of phosphorus, sodium and potassium.
Bone metabolism: Somatropin prompts the turnover of skeletal bone. The long-term administration of somatropin to growth deficient patients with osteopenia will result to an increased bone mineral content as well as density at weight-bearing sites.
Physical capacity: Physical exercise capability and muscle strength are improved after a long term treatment. This drug increases the cardiac output, but the method still needs to be clarified. Decrease in the resistance of peripheral vascular may add to this effect.
