How We Can Help

More than the medicine.

All FDA-approved human growth hormone products are similar: they’re identical to the growth hormone your body makes. But growth hormone therapy is about more than just the medicine. It’s also about how that medicine is given and how the company supports patients. Learn more about some of the delivery devices on the market.
