What is Jintropin (growth hormone) and how does it work?
Growth hormone (somatropin) is one of the hormones secreted and produced by the anterior pituitary gland. This hormone is essential for all people and especially for the elderly. Many destructive processes are blocked in the human body thanks to these hormones. Moreover, somatropin stimulates regenerative processes. It helps build strong bones, convert fat into muscle mass, boost immune system, improve skin color and hair growth, improve mental abilities, etc. Thus, older people have the opportunity to rejuvenate their body under the influence of growth hormone.
Somatropin is also getting super popular among athletes. To date, Jintropin is among the best and most reliable drugs that are designed to build muscle. Somatropin speeds up metabolic reactions. Moreover, it has a fat burning effect. Nevertheless, it is necessary to consult a doctor before using Jintropin or other HGH analogues.
Jintropin - characteristics
Jintropin stimulates skeletal and somatic growth, and activates metabolic reactions and regeneration processes in the body. It slows the synthesis of fats and stimulates muscle growth.
Jintropin positively affects gland functions of the body - thymus, genital, thyroid, adrenal, etc. This drug suppresses the production of certain enzymes and stimulates insulin-like growth factor. Moreover, it stimulates the production of collagen in the skin, hair, bones, and other tissues.
Additional benefits include a small number of side effects. Unwanted side effects occur when you change the dosage and the schedule of injections (in the vast majority of cases). It is worth remembering that long-term Jintropin therapy can lead to hypothyroidism.
Nevertheless, the effectiveness of this drug is simply amazing. Jintropin is widely used in medicine for the treatment of a number of different disorders. Despite the high price, a large number of both amateur and professional athletes use this highly effective drug for burning fat deposits and muscle growth. Mild side effects allow combining Jintropin with a large number of other drugs, which gives a truly amazing result.
Jintropin in sport and medicine
Jintropin is effectively used for medical purposes to treat growth retardation in children. It is prescribed to treat kidney failure in some cases. In addition, Jintropin is used to treat growth hormone deficiency in adults.
Jintropin stimulates linear growth in children with low levels of growth hormone. As for adults with hormone deficiency, Jintropin reduces the amount of fat and helps gain some muscle. This drug stimulates wound healing in patients suffering from severe burns, as well as in patients undergoing serious surgeries.
As for the sports and fitness industry, the first and probably the most important advantage of Jintropin is its strong anabolic effect (increased synthesis of proteins, muscle hypertrophy and muscle hyperplasia). The second advantage is that somatropin strengthens tendons and bones, and stimulates tissue repair.
The main advantages of Jintropin for athletes:
Reduction of excessive amounts of fat in the body (especially abdominal fat). Reduction of abdominal fat is the strongest and most visible effect of Jintropin.
Increased muscle mass. You can also improve your physical strength when practicing sport activities.
Reduction of the number of wrinkles along with other positive effects on the skin.
Increased bone density.
Immune system stimulation.
Jintropin may help improve brain function. Note that it is forbidden to use this drug during pregnancy, breastfeeding. Those who suffer from diabetes or cancer should avoid using Jintropin as well.
There may be some side effects associated with Jintropin. The most common include low blood sugar symptoms (that is, there is a risk of diabetes). In rare cases, Jintropin can adversely affect the work of the thyroid gland. But as a rule, this drug does not cause any harm if you follow all the recommendations. It is recommended to use Jintropin for a minimum of three months.
How should you use Jintropin?
Growth deficiency due to low secretion of growth hormone: 12 IU/m2/week or 0.6 IU/kg/week. The weekly dose should be divided into 3-6 injections (in the evenings).
Insufficient growth in patients with Turner syndrome: 18 IU/ m2/week or 0.6-0.7 IU/kg/week. The weekly dose should be divided into 7 injections. In some cases, it may be necessary to increase doses during the first year of treatment.
Jintropin for athletes: 10 to 16 IU should be administered in combination with insulin and steroid preparations to achieve maximum effect. It is recommended to divide the daily dose into several doses per day. The therapy must be continued for a month after you have finished the course of anabolics and steroids.
Do not forget that it is possible to use Jintropin in combination with insulin. In this case, you will be able to gain 7 to 8 kg of muscle mass in 5 to 6 weeks, but the fat burning performance will be minimal.
It is recommended to use 4 IU per day for the prevention of joint and ligament injuries. In this case, the anabolic effect will be low, but your joints will be protected during the training period. 4 to 10 IU should be used every day to achieve rejuvenating and health-improving effect.
To prepare the solution, carefully rotate the vial (without shaking) until the contents are completely dissolved. The solution should be clear. It should not contain particles of undissolved drug.
The drug is well absorbed; its maximum concentration can be achieved in three to six hours after administration. The hormone is excreted by the kidneys.
The drug is not recommended for patients with brain tumors. The therapy should be stopped if signs of cancer are detected.
Do not use this drug during any kind of anticancer therapy (radiation, chemotherapy).
The drug should not be administered to children to stimulate growth if the epiphyseal growth plates are closed.
Treatment should be started by a qualified physician.
The dosage of insulin should be changed in patients with diabetes mellitus.
It is necessary to test for kidney problems before starting Jintropin therapy. It is unacceptable to use this drug after kidney transplantation.
What should you know about Jintropin side effects?
This medication is not completely safe for use. Jintropin may cause some negative reactions: headache, fatigue or weakness, pain in the thigh and knee, peripheral edema (in the first weeks of treatment), arthralgia, myalgia, increased intracranial pressure (severe and frequent headaches, nausea, vomiting), pancreatitis (abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting), otitis media and hearing loss (in patients with Turner syndrome), gynecomastia, carpal tunnel syndrome, fluid retention, leukemoid reaction, scoliosis.
Allergic reactions: skin rash, itching.
Jintropin special instructions and precautions
Patients with growth hormone deficiency associated with intracranial lesions should undergo regular examinations for progression or relapse of the disease.
It is necessary to periodically change the injection area in order to avoid localized atrophy of subcutaneous fat.
Treatment of insufficient growth hormone secretion should be started as early as possible and continued until puberty or until the desired result is achieved.
Patients with diabetes should be under strict medical supervision during treatment.
Fundoscopy is recommended in order to detect edema of the optic nerve and intracranial hypertension (before and during treatment, in case of severe headaches, visual impairment, nausea, vomiting). It is necessary to stop the treatment in case of intracranial hypertension.
