GH is primarily of interest in the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of inappropriate growth hormone secretion. Growth hormone measurements in children are used in the evaluation of short stature and help differentiate low GH production from other sources of growth failure. Stimulation and suppression tests are often more meaningful than random measurements.
Inform your doctor if you are on any medications, have any allergies or underlying medical conditions before your GH. Your doctor will give specific instructions depending on your condition on how to prepare for GH.
