Accredo dispenses several products for growth hormone therapy. All products are hormones that are identical to human growth hormone. They are used to stimulate skeletal and linear growth in children with growth failure due to a lack of natural growth hormone secretion. They may also be used in adults with growth hormone deficiency. All products are administered as a subcutaneous (under the skin) injection.
Each product may differ as follows:
- Diagnosis the product has been approved to treat
