One type of manufactured growth hormone or variation of synthetic somatropin goes by the name “Saizen”. It is developed by Merck. As always, I just want the readers to be kept informed on what is out there in the height increase universe and all the varieties and ideas around.
From the WIkipedia article on Saizen HERE…
Saizen is a commercial preparation of synthetic somatropin (growth hormone, a.k.a. GH). Manufactured by Merck Serono, Saizen is produced by recombinant DNA technology from amammalian cell line (mouse C127) that was modified by the addition of the human GH gene, resulting in an identical 191-amino acid sequence and structure.
Saizen is injected. It is intended for long-term treatment of individuals who are growth hormone deficient. Saizen, like all synthetic somatropin, has special importance for children and adolescents whose growth failure is due to inadequate production of growth hormone. Studies have shown that somatropin usage fails to produce athletic performance enhancement despite claims to the contrary. More recently, Saizen has been used in IVF protocols by a few physicians for female patients undergoing infertility treatment in an attempt to increase the number and quality of oocytes retrieved. It affects:
- Tissue growth
- Skeletal growth
- Cell growth (especially muscle growth)
- Organ growth
- Protein metabolism
- Carbohydrate metabolism
- Lipid metabolism
- Mineral metabolism
- Connective tissue and bone metabolism
Saizen usage should be performed under the regular guidance of a physician who is experienced in the diagnosis and management of growth hormone deficiency.
Individuals with inadequate secretion of growth hormone sometimes experience fasting hypoglycemia that is improved by treatment with growth hormone. Using Saizen may decrease glucosetolerance. Because human growth hormone may induce a state of insulin resistance, patients should be observed for evidence of glucose intolerance. As with all human growth hormone supplementation, Saizen should be used with caution in patients with diabetes mellitus or a family history of diabetes mellitus.
Warnings: Black-Market HGH
Those seeking HGH (Human Growth Hormone) therapy without a prescription from licensed physicians must be aware that there are several fake HGH manufacturers floating around the web. Most of these manufacturers actually use a substance called hCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin) and pass it off as Generic HGH, and since testing the HGH chemical substance is a very expensive process, the bootleggers know that most, if not all, of their customers wouldn’t even attempt to test them.
The majority of fake HGH on the market is manufactured in China or India, The color of the caps on the bottles offers no discernible way to tell if it is real HGH or fake, Blue, Green, Grey, Red tops are all used and you can not rely on the color of the top to prove or disprove if its real. Always order from a reputable pharmacy.
Me: Here is the main thing to take away from learning about Saizen, and mod tother types of synthetic somatropin that is going around. If we remember that the GH goes into the liver to make IGF-1, and that IGF stands for insulin like growth factor, we realize that insulin is also critical in the human growth process. the IGF and insulin are both produced by the liver and pancreas, respectively. Sky stated that IGF-1 has 10 more of an affect than GH. If we put more GH into a patients body, the body will begin to develop a resistance to the insulin or IGF produced. Remember that when we get hungry, our blood sugar levels drop. When we eat, our sugar levels increase again but so does the insulin to control it. Carbohydrates are based on polysaccharides, which are long chained sugars. Carbs like bread bread down very quickly into sugars, the most common being glucose, which goes directly to work to supple energy to the body, but mostly to the brain. Insulin is what allows the tissues in the body to absorb glucose.
From the wikipedia article on insulin HERE…
insulin is provided within the body in a constant proportion to remove excess glucose from the blood, which otherwise would be toxic
So if the body becomes resistance to the effects of insulin, then it can be poisoned by too much glucose.
