Brief Answer:
Not reported

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Somatropin or Growth Hormone replacment which is branded as Omnitrope may cause diarrhoea but not reported yet. It stimulates Insulin Growth Factor 1 from the liver. But I do not think if it damages the liver.

Testosterone high doses can damage the liver by itself and can be more when added with other medications/drugs. It itself may not cause diarrhoea

Hi there - What is the relationship between growth hormone deficiency and low ferritin levels (anemia) and/or iron absorption? I have been diagnosed with low ferritin. My ferritin level was 3 in a normal range of 10-290. Oral iron would not bring my ferritin higher than a 7. It was determined that I was not absorbing iron properly. Therefore, I had been receiving iron via iv 100mg once per week over 6 months and the most my ferritin level would maintain was at 40. If I missed a week or two, my ferritin level would drop back to 10-20. In December (8wks ago), my doctor had me receive 1000mg at one time, instead of 100mg per week, and the plan was to have me wait 8-10 weeks. As of now, I haven't been back in 8 weeks. Also, in December I was diagnosed with adult growth hormone deficiency. I started growth hormone injections in early January and my most recent ferritin level was 474 (drawn Monday 2/14). At this level of 474, it appears I can stop my iron iv weekly, or otherwise, since my ferritin level is way too high now. Has the addition of hgh through the injections, and therefore the increase of hgh, improved my ability to absorb and/or maintain my ferritin levels? And, if so, what is the connection? Thanks so much! Robin

I'm 22 and about 5'8". I haven't grown since high school, but was wondering if there is any way possible to increase my actual height by 2-4". I had X-rays taken a couple years ago and was told my growth plates were still open. Cost not being a factor, is there any possible way to see this kind of increase my height, whether it be HGH or some other option?
