Just about any drug or over-the-counter supplement can cause adverse reactions, and the same applies to Norditropin side effects.
The prescription-strength synthetic growth hormone is generally recommended for pediatric patients diagnosed with some type of childhood growth hormone deficiency.
Norditropin is also used, in some cases, for treatment of adult onset growth hormone deficiency caused by damage or disease to the pituitary gland.
Bodybuilders and athletes also turn to different brands of growth hormone to enhance their muscle building efforts.
Norditropin is one of over two dozen synthetically produced growth hormone products used today.
Norditropin side effects are not always the dosage dependent, so knowing as much as you can about the drug, the better.
Norditropin Side Effects Bodybuilding
Norditropin side effects are possible, especially for bodybuilders, but even in medical scenarios under careful physician oversight.
Among the most prevalent:
Potential for increased or decreased blood sugar (glucose) levels – the medical terms are hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia, respectively.
Headaches or an increased sense of pressure in the skull known as intracranial hypertension. This can contribute to changes in vision.
Swelling in the extremities, typically the hands and the feet. This is caused by fluid retention.
Allergic reactions – ranging from mild and temporary to life-threatening such as anaphylactic shock.
Allergic reactions may even be more prevalent with purchases of growth hormone from underground labs or black-market resources where questionable ingredients are often found in counterfeit products.
Decreased levels of other hormones including cortisol and thyroid hormone. These can cause a number of issues that affect overall health and wellness.
Norditropin is a laboratory developed form of growth hormone designed for subcutaneous injection. The drug is manufactured by Novo Nordisk of Denmark.
Norditropin is manufactured utilizing recombinant DNA (rDNA) technology. The manufacturer defines it as a polypeptide hormone developed utilizing or combining a strain of bacteria known as E. coli and a human growth hormone gene.
Norditropin, like other high-quality forms of somatropin (generic term for growth hormone), contains the 191-amino acid sequence identical to that produced by the pituitary gland’s growth hormone.
What exactly does it do? The primary mechanism of action of any growth hormone is to promote the growth of cells in the body. It’s anabolic or tissue forming in nature. As such, Norditropin can contribute to:
Enhanced tissue growth (muscle)
Increased bone growth and strength
Metabolism of lipids, minerals, proteins, and carbohydrates
Improved synthesis of proteins, and when involved in protein metabolism also aids in the retention of nitrogen in the muscles. This not only provides benefits to the health and wellness of muscle, but can also increase stamina and endurance.
Bodybuilders often turn to products like Norditropin not only for its ability to increase muscle mass, but for its potential fat-burning capabilities due to increased metabolism and the ability to stimulate lipolysis or fat loss.
Norditropin does provide a number of benefits to bodybuilders in this regard, but it also has the potential to trigger a number of negative side effects.
Because growth hormone can literally affect every cell in the human body, it can also have an influence over how those cells grow.
When used on children, Norditropin is mainly designed to stimulate stature or long bone growth.
For treatment of an adult growth hormone deficiency, patients are typically concerned with development and maintenance of lean muscle mass, reduced body fat storage, and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.
Norditropin Administration Methods
Depending on where you buy Norditropin (pharmacy with a prescription or the black market without a prescription), application methods differ.
Bodybuilders who purchase growth hormone without a prescription must often mix a lyophilized powder with bacteriostatic water or other liquid component prior to injection.
Legitimate pharmaceutical grade manufacturers often sell Norditropin in premeasured dosages.
It can be found in a solution of different milligram strengths – in vial as well as the Norditropin delivery device, which offers premeasured dosages of the growth hormone for doses that don’t require large needles or syringes.
This should reduce Norditropin injection site pain.
Dosage suggestions for use of Norditropin is literally all over the map, depending on where you find your information.
Bodybuilders often tend to inject higher than recommended amounts of drugs than that suggested by prescribing data from the manufacturer of a drug.
Bodybuilders will not be able to find doctor-approved recommendations for dosage for non-medical uses of any growth hormone.
Dosage depends on milligram strength and expectations in regard to results, while at the same time reducing the potential for side effects.
Dosage recommendations found on bodybuilding websites and muscle building forum board discussion groups vary widely in regard to dosage and frequency of dosage. Be aware that numerous factors can influence not only results, but possible side effects.
Anyone anticipating use of Norditropin or any growth hormone for physical enhancement should not only be aware of, but watch for, potential side effects.
When left untreated, some Norditropin side effects can lead to long-term health issues.
